Duration of The Session

Industry standards for full body massages sessions are 60 minutes and 90 minutes, which essentially means 50 minutes and 80 minutes. Often spa menu's do not explain this. The 10 minute break is necessary for the massage therapist to prepare for their next client - change sheets, wash hands, go to the bathroom and eat if necessary. Prime time appointments are scheduled on the weekends and between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m during the week. If you have a reservation during these times, please be aware that your massage therapist may be booked back to back, so arrive time otherwise you may not get a full session.  Also realize that you may not receive the quality work you'd expect from a fully booked massage therapist. Scheduling on weekdays during off hours is always a wiser choice.
