What to Expect
Frequently Asked Questions
What do you mean by invigorate your mind, body, and spirit?
Studies have indicated that many areas of discomfort result from stress. Massage is an effective therapy in managing stress, resulting in decreased anxiety, greater energy, increased circulation, reduced pain, reduced fatigue, and/or headache pain. When your body feels good, your mind is more relaxed and able to better focus on other life issues. It follows that Spirit or mood is enhanced when your mind and body are in a state of well-being.
Does therapy hurt?
Your physical condition or dysfunction is the source of your pain. Massage will treat those areas, and you will most likely feel better at the end of the treatment. During the massage, we will obtain feedback from you about your level of comfort and make adjustments as needed. If you are uncomfortable at any time during the massage, feel free to be open about your feelings.
How much of my body will be massaged?
If being treated for a specific injury or condition, the entire session may focus on a single area. There may also be a need to treat other body areas that are contributing to the primary area of discomfort.
Do I need to disrobe?
Clients are appropriately draped at all times. The amount of clothing you need to remove depends largely on the extent of the treatment you are receiving. After our initial consultation, we will let you know what clothing needs to be removed.
How often will I need treatment?
This will vary depending on the severity of your condition. Once we assess the areas requiring attention, we will be in a position to not only determine the appropriate treatment but also the frequency of maintenance treatments that can be of benefit. Your massage experience will guide you about ongoing treatments.
Guided Touch Therapies asks that you respectfully give a 24-hour notice of cancellation if you must miss an appointment. 919-614-6199
We charge ½ price for the first missed appointment and full price for all others after. Cancelling of an appointment in less than 24 hours or failure to attend a scheduled appointment with the intent of redeeming a gift certificate will result in the forfeiting of the certificate. Recognizing that we do set aside the scheduled time just for you, have other clients to consider, and have to maintain a smoothly running business, we do find it necessary to charge for appointments that are repetitively changed on the day of the scheduled appointment. This fee is $40.00. People who have cancelled on us at the last minute or have failed to show up for a scheduled appointment will be asked to guarantee future appointments with a credit card. Refusal to provide us with credit card information will result in termination of our relationship.
We do understand emergencies and illnesses do occur. If you have a fever, have been in the hospital, have been vomiting, or have diarrhea within 24 hours of your schedule appointment, or it begins a couple of hours prior to your scheduled appointment, or your children are ill and need you at home, please cancel. Equally, if there is an ice storm, please do not drive or walk on the ice if you do not have to. Fee free to call and reschedule your appointment. There will be no charge for these types of cancellations.
