..Meet Your Therapist..
Hi! I'm Andrea Ott, LMT - I'm proud to offer Wellness Massage as a practitioner for Western Mass Wellness Center.
In addition to relaxing Swedish and therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage, Heated Himalayan Salt Stone, and AromaTherapy Massage, I offer Ashiatsu Massage. It is a unique massage modality steeped in ancient holistic tradition, in which the practitioner utilizes clean well maintained feet instead of hands. Thanks to the use of overhead bars, the session can be performed at a traditional massage table. It is an incredibly relaxing and effective massage because it provides broad consistent pressure throughout the sesion. You have to try it to believe it!
I also offer Corporate and Event Chair Massage. Please call 860-967-9536.
I am always seeking provide exceptional wellness massage therapy services that earn a 5 Star review every time! To that end I continue to enhance my skill-set; first by adding Ashiatsu Massage, and following that, Craniosacral Therapy... and now, Cupping! Just 5 minutes of Cupping can achieve tremendous results - the equivalent of half an hour of Deep Tissue Massage! It can help with flexibility and range of motion, reduce adhesions and myofascial restrictions. It is a superb holistic therapy for athletes as well as those dealing with chronic muscular discomfort. I will be expanding my skill set within this modality this summer; attending an advanced class on June 15, 2019. There are more continuing education days currently being planned for the year ahead, and I'm so excited to share them with you as they approach.
Also, the Wellness Center is working on a partnership with SpaFinder, and should be able to accept SpaFinder Gift Cards some time in the next several weeks! SpaFinder Gift Cards are available at area drugstores and grocery stores, as well as other major retailers and department stores where gift cards are sold, and even online. They make great gifts, as with one gift card people have a variety of wellness, beauty and holistic businesses where the card can be utilized for a bit of much needed self-care! Stay tuned!

What to Expect
The day of your first session, please plan to arrive at least 10 to 15 minutes early so that you will have adequate time to fill out an intake form covering your current health, and massage therapy goals. Your therapist will take time to review this form with you, discuss your needs, and create a plan for your care. At future sessions you should plan to arrive at least 5 minutes prior to your scheduled session time.
New guests will need to provide a valid photo ID or driver's license that will be photocopied and kept on file, much as you would at a doctor's office or other wellness facility.
The Nature of Booking
Please understand that the time your session is scheduled for is the time that the hands-on portion of your visit is set to begin. Out of respect for the session times of other guests to our center, those who arrive exactly on or after the time hands-on should begin will only receive the amount of time remaining in their session slot. For example, if a session is booked for 3PM and the guest arrives exactly at 3PM, the therapist will greet the guest, guide the guest through the intake process, leave the room to allow the guest to get on table comfortably, and return to complete the hands-on portion of the session which will end at 4PM. The guest will still be responsible for paying for a full hour of time. Sessions that begin later than scheduled cannot be extended, as your therapist needs time to clean and reset the room after your appointment before the next guest of our center arrives.
Following the intake process, your therapist will instruct you to undress to your own level of comfort and to lay on the massage table under both a sheet and a blanket. Your therapist will leave the room at this time, wash their hands, and return once you are comfortably on the table under the sheet and blanket.
Your therapist will only uncover the area that is being worked on at a given time (i.e. the arm, the leg, the back), and will re-cover the area when they move on. Both table heat and air conditioning can be adjusted to ensure your comfort during the session.
During Your Session
Your therapist will work according to your care plan for your session, and will check in with you regarding the pressure. Your comfort during the session is important to us -- Please let your therapist know at any time if anything (table heat, pressure, face cradle height) needs to be adjusted. Our office uses unscented Coconut Oil for most massage therapy sessions. Our essential oil massage oils have a Sunflower Oil base. We also have plain Sunflower Oil for guests who cannot use Coconut Oil.
Our office has a zero tolerance policy with regard to inappropriate (rude, vulgar, aggressive or sexual) remarks or behavior. Violations of this policy will result in immediate forfeit of the massage session, without refund, and violators will not be allowed to book sessions in the future.
Following Your Session
Your therapist will meet you with a bottle of water. In a healthy individual, proper hydration aids the body and its systems to function at their best. Your therapist will have suggestions for future massage work, and for self-care between sessions. After your visit, to prevent muscle strain or injury, we suggest that guests try to refrain from strenuous work for the rest of the day.
