Frequently Asked Questions about our Massages...

(Click on each question below to view the answer)

  • When should I schedule my massage?
  • Ideally you will schedule your massage when you reserve your stay at Cherry Ridge Retreat but as long as we are given at least three days’ notice we should be able to book your massage as close to your requested time as possible.
  • How should I prepare for my massage?
  • Your Massage Therapist may ask some questions about your health history and about your current health condition to determine that it is safe for you to have a massage. They will also seek to find out about areas in which you would most benefit from a deeper massage such as your shoulders, for example.
  • I’m very self-conscious about my body, can you ease my worries?
  • No worries! Our Massage Therapists are Professionals; they’ve seen and worked on every body type imaginable . Their only concern is to provide you with the best massage experience possible.
  • Do I have to get completely undressed for my massage?
  • No. You are welcome to wear as much or as little as you feel comfortable wearing during your massage. Our Massage Therapists will not watch as you undress and as you situate yourself on the massage table, draping yourself. With that said please remember you may not get as much out of a massage if you are wearing a suit of armor as you would if you were unclothed but either way our Massage Therapists will provide you the best massage experience possible. Many people find that wearing underwear or a bathing suit helps them to be comfortable while enjoying a great massage experience.
  • Can I have someone with me even if they are not getting a massage?
  • Yes, of course you are welcome to have someone with you but it is best that they remain a wallflower as the massage experience is about you and is between you and your Massage Therapist. You and your Massage Therapist need to be tuned in to each other for your ultimate massage benefit; the other person with you should read a good book or relax in a nearby hot tub or hammock if they are not part of a Couples Massage experience.
