What Can Be Expected

 

As a first time client at Telluride Bodyworks, we ask that you arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your appointment to fill out a brief form pertaining to the history of your health. Your bodyworker will then go over your intake form with you and ask further questions regaurding areas of concern, recent injuiries or surgeries, if you have any allergies or current skin conditions, preference of pressure, etc. After your intake, your bodyworker will instruct you to disrobe to your comfort level and get under the sheets on the massage table. When your therapist returns to the room your bodywork session will begin at this time. At Telluride Bodyworks, we value this time for our clients to go inward. Bodywork is typically given in silence. However, if at any point you feel discomfort or have pertinent information, please let your bodyworker know! Your bodyworker will be checking in with you periodically throughout treatment to ensure that your maximum comfort level and expectations are obtained. At the close of your session, your bodyworker will go over your session, any improvements or changes they've noticed from you last session, and recommend a few stretches or home exercises if necessary. You will also be given water and encouraged to continue drinking water throughout the next few days. It's important to keep the body hydrated, especially after a massage, and even more so at high altitude.
