Clients Please Read Before Scheduling a Massage Session:                

Location of Massage: Massage sessions are provided at Keith Clinic Estramonte Chiropractic (West Charlotte Office) 4016 Triangle Dr, Charlotte, NC 28208 or businesses/event locations (chair massage only for businesses/events).

When booking online, this time is included in the duration of each session.

If it's Your First Massage or Information on my Massage Routine

  1. While I'm setting up the massage table, you will fill out an intake form that allows me to give the massage you want within my scope as a massage therapist and provide you with a massage that is within standards of your health history as well as providing your consent to treatment.
  2. If you have an area of particular concern, such as a tight neck, you can ask me to spend more time in this area or have a treatment that is focused only on one to three areas. If there are areas you prefer not being massaged (such as glutes or face), you can indicate this on the massage form you fill out before your session. Depending on your preferences, you can ask me to use light, medium, or firm pressure.
  3. We will go over your information and decide on a treatment plan for you.
  4. I will exit the room to allow you to undress to your comfort level. Most massage and bodywork techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed however, it is entirely up to you what you want to wear. You should undress to your level of comfort.
  5. A sheet will be present on the table to cover yourself with as you lie on the table.
  6. I will ask if you are ready a minute or two later. You will be properly draped during the entire session and only the area being massage at the time will be undraped.
  7. I will use an oil or lotion to allow for smooth and long stokes.
  8. Soothing music will be played to enhance your relaxation. 
  9. A full body massage will begin on either your back or your stomach and flip over at the halfway point.
  10. I will let you know when your session is over and that I will wait outside the room for you until you are fully clothed.
  11. We will discuss how the treatment went and if there are any changes that need to be made for future massage sessions.
