Frequently Asked Questions:

When should I arrive for my treatment?

We recommend that you arrive about ten minutes prior to your session. This will allow you time to settle and put your mind in a place where you will be able to relax. If you rush through the door a few minutes late and carry that negative and frantic energy with you, it will impact your body’s ability to heal.

What should I wear to my session?

Wear what is comfortable and relaxing. We recommend that you undress for your session, but to what level is up to you and your comfort. Just be aware that the therapist may not be able to effectively access clothed body areas. We recommend that you remove all jewelry during the massage as well. Rings, bracelets or earrings have been known to scrape or even cut therapists as they attempted to work on different body areas.

Why am I told to drink plenty of water after my massage?

Your body’s muscles and organs store or trap a lot of toxins and build up. The pressure on these places during a session can break up and release these elements back into your body system. Drinking plenty of water following a session will help to flush this systemic build up out.  Leaving your body relaxed and purified.

How long is a 60 minute massage?

A 60 minute massage is a full 60 minutes. We allow for extra time in the treatment space for dressing or thought gathering following your session.

What does राम राम राम mean?

Let’s begin with the language this is written in, Sans Script. Simply, each character translate to “Ram”. Ram is a reference to an ancient Hindu colossus who plays a major role in the Hindu creation legend. He is the son figure that comes to humanity as the purist representation of chivalry, righteousness and love.
