FAQ'S

I just had surgery. How soon can I come in?
Depending on the type of surgery, we typically ask that you wait 4-6 weeks after your surgery before scheduling a massage. This gives your body time to heal without adding more to integrate. It’s also best to get your doctor’s approval for a massage. Myofascial Release and CranioSacral Therapy are gentle approaches which can be beneficial during your recovery from surgery.

This is my first massage, what can I expect?
We are honored you’ve chosen to visit us for your first massage. When you come in, you’ll complete some paperwork and discuss your massage goals with your therapist. Your goals may include relaxation or releasing areas where your body is holding tension. Feel free to ask your therapist any questions you may have. You’ll then be given privacy to undress to your comfort level, lay down on the massage table and cover up. The therapist will knock before entering to ensure you’re ready. During your session, the therapist will undrape or uncover an area of your body (like your back), apply oil and massage using varying pressure and then cover the area again. Please let your therapist know if you want to adjust or stop the massage for any reason. Your therapist will let you know when the session is over. You’ll dress in privacy and that’s it. We suggest scheduling a Carole Lilly Custom Relaxation Massage (Full Session) for your first massage.

I’m pregnant, can I get a massage?
Yes, in fact you may find a massage will help you relax and relieve some of the pain/tension in your joints as your body changes. If you are in a high-risk pregnancy, we ask that you consult your doctor or midwife before your massage.

I’m training for a marathon, when should I come in for a massage?
We recommend scheduling a therapeutic or sports massage immediately after a sporting event, but not more than 2-3 days before your next event. This will give your body enough time to integrate the massage for optimum performance. Massage can help reduce recovery time by reducing muscle tension, relieving swelling and preventing soreness after an event.

I injured my back today. Can I come in for a massage?
It’s best to get your doctor’s approval before coming in for a massage. Depending on the type of injury, we typically ask that you wait 2-3 days before scheduling with us. Deeper work may encourage inflammation and should be avoided until the body’s natural inflammation response has had a chance to do its job. Myofascial Release and CranioSacral Therapy are gentle approaches that can support your back as it heals.

How often should I get a massage? When should I come back?
At Carole Lilly Massage, we suggest that you schedule your next appointment based on your availability (schedule/time) and budget (money). If you want to come on a regular basis as part of your self-care regimen, we suggest setting up appointments at regular intervals. Schedule these closer together in the beginning – weekly or twice a month at first – and then move to monthly maintenance. Some clients will want to continue to come weekly or twice a month as they feel better receiving massage on a regular basis. We encourage you to recognize whatever interval of time works best for you.

Can you go deeper?
Deep work is offered only after the client’s body opens to it; rather than through force. Our massage therapists are skilled at reading your body’s response to additional pressure and will check-in often. Deep work is followed by relaxing integration strokes, reuniting the freed up area with the rest of the body, and expanding the release.

Will I be draped (covered with sheets) during my massage?
Yes, the state of North Carolina Board of Massage and Bodywork Therapy requires all massage therapists provide draping during your massage session.

Are there any sessions where I stay dressed?
Yes, you will wear comfortable, loose clothing during Chair Massage, Happy Feet and CranioSacral Therapy. You have the option to wear shorts and a t-shirt during Myofascial Release sessions.

Do I have to use the face cradle?
Not at all; you can feel free to turn your head to one side while lying on the table, instead of using the face cradle. Many clients find that face cradles generally allow for more neck comfort, and allow your muscles to relax and release in a more balanced/aligned way. At Carole Lilly Massage, please choose whichever works best for you.

Do you sell products at Carole Lilly Massage?
Yes, we provide many of the great products (e.g., sheets, eye pillows, neck pillows, Cryoderm, massage oils, etc.) which we use during your session. These can assist you in relaxing, releasing muscle tension or relieving pain at home. Ask your therapist or the Front Desk Staff for suggestions or product information.
