We have been operating our Sydney mobile massage business now since 2005 and so it is fair to say we have a reasonable understanding of the questions that people ask. This article will talk about a few of the more common questions that we get asked.
Do you bring your own massage table or will you massage me on the bed?
We will bring a massage table – we won’t be massaging you on your bed or the floor.
What do I need to provide?
Nothing other than a suitable space to work in. We will bring the massage table, towels and oils. Some therapists may bring a music player but if you particularly want music then it might be an idea to organise this in advance.
We do not bring candles but if you wish to create a relaxing ambiance and environment for the massage then feel free to light some candles.
My apartment/house is small – how much space do I need?
From our point of view the more room the better but don’t let this be a reason not to consider booking a home massage. We have yet to come across a space that we are not able to work in.
My house is not suitable for mobile massage (for example, I share with other people)- do you operate out of a clinic?
No – sorry we only provide mobile massage services. We do not provide clinic massage services.
I’m concerned about letting strangers in my home – how can I trust you?
This is very much a personal decision and we respect your right to be mindful of who you let into your home. All we can say is that we are professional therapists and as such we are registered with professional associations. Should you wish you can check our credentials with the relevant organisations.
I’ve had unsatisfactory massages from other people in the past. How can I be confident that you will be different?
We are mindful that when we arrange a therapist to visit you that we need to be confident that the therapist we send will be suitable for you. If we do not believe that we have a therapist suitable for you at the time you want then we will not just send someone for the sake of an appointment.
We back this up with our guarantee – if you are not happy with the massage that you have received then just let us know and we will gladly refund you. You do not even have to explain why you were not satisfied
What areas do you cover?
We provide mobile massage to the Inner west of Sydney. For the suburbs we may visit then please check out www.innerwestmassage.com.au/suburbs.php
Can I choose a particular therapist (or a particular gender)?
Yes subject to availability and some geographical constraints. If you live on the fringe of the area we cover then some therapists may not be available.
However, one restriction is that female therapists are only available for female callers. Men who wish to receive a massage from a female therapist will need to get a female who knows them to call on their behalf.
What happens when you arrive and how do I prepare for the massage?
When we arrive, we take a couple of minutes to set up the table during which time we will ask you to complete a questionnaire so that we can understand your requirements for the massage and any health problems you may have (or had in the past) that may impact on the massage. We will take a few minutes to discuss particular issues so that we have a clear understanding about what you want from the massage and what are your expectations.
At this time we will leave the room whilst you get undressed.
We are invariably asked what you need to wear for the massage. The answer is as little as you are comfortable with. If you are comfortable wearing nothing (if for example you have just got out of the shower) then that is fine. If you feel that you would be more comfortable wearing underwear then again that is perfectable ok with us. If you are not sure then it is probable better to wear underwear. You can always choose to disrobe completely for subsequent appointments as you feel comfortable with your therapist.
Many people like to have a robe handy to change into after the massage, particularly as many people like to have a shower straight after the massage to make sure that any excess oil is removed. (As an aside, this is a great advantage of having a mobile massage compared with going to a clinic where you have to put your clothes directly on over oiled skin).
How do I book a massage?
There are two ways to book depending on your preference:
(1) Most people phone 0421 410057 to make initial enquiry and/or a booking.
(2) Some therapists are available for online bookings (for real time bookings).
