Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some frequently asked questions that we often hear before an appointment, or about massage therapy in general.

What should I wear for my massage?
At Jamie Gates Massage it is clothing optional.  Wear what you are comfortable in or nothing at all.  Proper draping techniques are ALWAYS used so you are covered during the massage.

What if I am running late for my appt or I need to reschedule?
It is always best to let us know if you are running a few minutes late.  You are paying for your appointment block, so it is in your best interest to show up for your appt on time.  If you can’t make the appt and need to reschedule, a 24-hour notice is recommended.  If you DO NOT call or show up for your appt, you will be charged for the missed appointment.  Future appointments will not be scheduled until past appointments are paid for in full.

What if I have allergies to nuts, scents, or certain types of oils?
Please let your massage therapist know as soon as possible if you are allergic to ANYTHING.  Jamie Gates Massage carries different types of oils, creams, and lotions and can cater to your needs.  If you have a favorite oil, cream, or lotion, please bring it in and we can use it for your massage.  We also do custom orders for people that prefer certain types or brands of product. Catalogs are available on location.

Is it customary to leave a tip for my massage therapist?
Tipping is a great way to show your massage therapist that they did a good job and that you appreciate the work that they have done.  Jamie Gates Massage does not require tipping and would only accept tips for jobs well done.
