When should I arrive for my first appointment?

We ask that you arrive 10 minutes before your first appointment. This is super important because we want to make sure you are 100% prepared for your very first day with us. We will review your health history and your wellness and fitness goals to make sure we create the right program for you. 

What do I need to bring with me?

Bring a bottle of water and double check that you have filled out the forms you received vie email/text. We want to make sure you have more time for Pilates, massage or assisted stretching rather than filling out forms when you come to the studio. 

What should I wear for my Pilates or Stretch Session?

We recommend wearing close fitting attire but by all means wear what makes you feel comfortable! We just ask that you wear something without zips so as to protect the equipment vinyl from being ripped or scratched. Gear wise, bring grippy socks if you have them, but if not, we’ve got some here at the studio for purchase.

What should I expect in my first Pilates Session?

During this 50 minute session we’ll spend time discussing your goals and any injuries of limitations you may have. We’ll orientate you to the Pilates equipment and give you a little tutorial on how to adjust the springs for each block of exercises you will do. Then we’ll get your started with your workout and have you do exercises that meet your level. You might find that there’s a lot to remember but don’t worry, things will start to click after 3 sessions.

Can I start Pilates if I’m inflexible and out of shape?

YES! We know there can be hesitation in making this leap. Just know that we will work with you at your pace and get you to where you want to be no matter where you are on your fitness journey. Pilates is a beautiful, gentle way to start or return to an exercise program . We will fine tune each exercise around your needs, get you moving again so you can do your daily activities with ease and joy!

What should I expect in an Assisted Fascial Stretch Session?

Also known as Rossiter Stretch Technique (RST), a session can take about 30 minutes. Your first session, however, will be 45 minutes, which will allow your practitioner to learn about your body, review your health history and explain more about this stretch technique. You will be fully clothed on a mat where a practitioner will anchor key points in the fascia/connective tissue, then guide you through movements to get the most effective stretch. This stretch is like a workout and you are always in control of every movement and its intensity. Most people experience results immediately. The effects are longer lasting after each session.

How many Assisted Stretch Sessions will I need and how often?

This varies greatly, depending on the severity of the issue to be addressed. Most people need 3-4 sessions and then monthly maintenance sessions afterwards. 

Recent/acute symptoms can see great relief with one session per week.

Longer (chronic) more complicated symptoms may require 2 or 3 sessions per week for long lasting results.

What can I expect when I get a massage?

Our licensed and certified therapist abides by the code of ethics and scope of practice set forth by the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies and the massage profession. Massage therapists can assess, they do not diagnose.

A therapist’s massage table is covered with linens which ensure your privacy, modesty and safety. When an area of your body is worked upon, only that area is uncovered. Always undress to your comfort level. Many clients fully undress and many feel more comfortable staying fully clothed or at the least, wearing only underwear.

Be warm. If you’re not, please let your therapist know.

Let your therapist know of any existing allergies or sensitivities. Massage oils and lotions sometimes contain nuts even though we strive to use hypoallergenic products.
