What are your ethical policies?
Body Tech™ employs only state-licensed massage therapists and has strict policies and procedural guidelines for appropriate conduct. Any inappropriate behavior, including the suggestion or solicitation of sexual services, will not be tolerated. Our licensed professionals are required to terminate the session immediately if a client’s behavior becomes rude or if inappropriate sexual advances are indicated. In such cases, the client will be charged and our licensed professional will receive full compensation for the session.
Inappropriate behavior of our licensed professionals will also not be tolerated. Any accusation by a client regarding the inappropriate behavior of one of our therapists will be investigated thoroughly and appropriate action will be taken. See our Policies.
Is a gratuity customary?
An average customary gratuity is between 15 & 20% of the service rate. Gratuity is not included in the price of the services. Gratuity is very much appreciated and can be added to your credit card or paid to the therapist in cash. All gratuities collected by Body Tech™ will be provided 100% to your therapist.
Can I re-book with your licensed professionals?
Yes, but all reservations, rescheduled reservations, and cancellations must be arranged through Body Tech™’s Reservations Department.
Can you accommodate my hectic schedule?
We understand hectic schedules. With advance notice, we will work around your schedule.
What if I am unsatisfied with the service?
Body Tech™ values the unique reputation that we currently have in this profession, and we make every effort to ensure client satisfaction. We encourage our valued clients to notify us with any concerns that may arise so we can make every effort to address any and all issues.
What is Body Tech’s™ relationship with hotels?
Most hotels do not have spas; therefore, Body Tech™ works directly with many fine hotels using a referral service system to provide their guests with a unique professional massage spa service. This proven system with standard policy and procedure guidelines ensures our services are provided in a safe and professional manner.
How is Body Tech™ Mobile Massage Spa Services different than the conventional clinic or spa?
Body Tech™ is very selective when we hire our licensed professionals. We do extensive background checks, require experienced licensed professionals, maintain a current malpractice insurance policy, and we insist on continuing education and proper training prior to hiring. Our services provide a more personal touch.
Do any of your professionals provide clinical bodywork?
Absolutely! We understand stress, tension, muscular trigger points, pain, and daily discomforts that are associated with the daily abuse we put our bodies through due to work and stress. We take pride in knowing our services provide the relief people so desperately need for optimal health and wellbeing.
Must I be completely undressed during a table massage?
No, however, the choice is up to our clients. The massage professional will leave the room to wash their arms and hands while you dress down to your comfort level and cover up on the table with the top sheet and cover. Most massages are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, you may decide what amount of clothing you prefer to wear for your own comfort. You will be properly draped at all times during the massage spa session. When the session is completed the massage professional will again leave the room while you dress.
What will a massage and bodywork feel like?
A general Swedish massage is light pressure with broad flowing strokes which will help calm your nervous system and relax muscle tension. A Swedish combination massage is more of a medium pressure with deep pressure applied to a couple areas of your choice. During a deep tissue massage, the strokes will be slowed down and increased pressure will be applied deeper into the muscle tissues. During a deep tissue/NMT "Clinical" massage, the connective tissues and trigger points will be focused on for tension and pain relief. We encourage good communication during our massage therapy sessions. Pressure should never go beyond a hurt so good! You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort so another approach may be taken.
What are the benefits of massage and bodywork?
Massage and bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, and promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue and improve posture. Massage and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.
How will I feel after the massage and bodywork session?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity, which can last for days or even longer. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your massage. Sometimes soreness in muscle tissues (like you just worked out) can be experienced; however, you should also experience tension relief.
