Choosing a Massage


The range of massages has grown in response to peoples appetite for novelty and so choosing a massage can sometimes be a daunting task. The basics have however not changed and perhaps the following may help navigate some of the standard issues that come up.

The place to start is to first consider how much time you have available. 30, 45, 60, 90 or 120 are standard massage time. At Kahe Hands Massage Studio we ask that you arrive a few minutes early so that you can complete a client form and get onto to plinth before the hour starts. At Kahe Hands when we say you have a 60 min massage we mean you get massaged for that time, anything else is extra time needed.

The next is to decide what you want or need massage, back, neck and shoulders, the whole body etc Then you need to decide on the type of pressure soft medium or hard, the more often you get massaged the harder your pressures can be but for your first massage I suggest a soft to medium pressure.

Then there is the style...the way in which you enjoy touch.... the impersonal hard and functional styles are Sports and Thai, the soft and gentle is Hawaiian and the in-between is Swedish.

Lastly be aware of the manner in which you will be covered or not covered.... Sports and Thai are generally covered in other words you don't remove any clothing, Swedish you will remove only that which will be massage and in Hawaiian there is little or no clothing or covering So the way you can book your massage is... I want a 60 min Back neck and shoulder Sports massage or 120 min Full Body Hawaiian
