Here at The Loft, we pride ourselves on being different from other massage venues. We don’t believe in a 50 minute massage when you book an hour, trying to upgrade your service or sell you a package or membership.
We don’t book clients back to back in order to have an appropriate amount of time before your session to thoroughly talk to you and understand what you are looking to get out of your time with us, what we can help you with and what you need/want. And just as important, time with you after your session to talk about what your therapist found, what your plan of treatment should entail and any advice we can offer as far as stretches or activities. That being said, it is best to always arrive 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to ensure your full 60 minutes.
If you book a 60 minute massage, you get a FULL 60 minutes on the table. Never a cut short appointment. (As long as you arrive on time :)) That is what we pride ourselves on. True client customization and care.
