Beacon Massage Therapy
85 Park Street  Stoughton MA 02072
Preparation for your massage

Health History: On your first appointment please arrive 15-20 minutes early to complete the health history form. Please arrive freshly showered and hydrated.  Prior to starting the massage we will consult with you about your current health and determine if there have been any changes since the last massage. All the information on your health history is strictly confidential.

The information on the form will identify what your specific goals are and any special medical considerations. This information will be reviewed and discussed with you prior to the massage so the work performed will be customized to meet your needs. This includes which modalities/tools that will be used and the accompanying pressure.

The therapist will leave the room while you undress to your comfort level and get under a sheet and blanket. Generally the only area of your body that is uncovered is the area that is being worked on. Most clients will enjoy their massage experience more if they remain quiet so they can concentrate on relaxing.
