Often, the therapist will begin by asking you about your current physical condition, stress levels, and whether or not any part of your body is particularly sensitive. You will be asked to remove as much clothing as you are comfortable with and then lie on a cushioned table. For the purposes of modesty as well as warmth, a sheet is usually draped over your body and the therapists will fold back the sheet when working on specific body parts. The room is generally darkened. Sometimes soft music is played and sometimes not, depending on what you and the therapist believes to be most relaxing for you.
The therapist often applies a lotion or oil to the body to reduce friction, then generally applies pressure to different sections of the body.
