Many clients wonder, “Should I talk during treatment?”
Our answer: Do what you find comfortable, and we will follow suit.
Our goal is to ensure your comfort during treatment, which allows us to provide the most effective massage. All our RMTs are skilled at what they do, and can adapt to each individual they see. If you need to talk, we can listen. If you want to remain silent, our lips are sealed. Need a little mix of both? We can do that too!

Need help deciding what might work for you? We’ve highlighted some positives about both talking and remaining silent during a massage treatment.
