Terri and I were invited to LaVida Massage in Frederick to each receive a one hour full body massage. When we received the invitation, we jumped at the opportunity to check LaVida Massage out and get a ‘first-hand’ (pardon the pun) experience with how LaVida Massage operates. We were not disappointed. From the moment we walked through the door, we suddenly forgot about the outside world and entered a tranquil, quiet, and soothing atmosphere. We were directed to their pre-massage waiting area where there was comfortable seating and water and tea to drink.
I was given a female therapist, Jill. Terri was given a male therapist, Byron. We were escorted to our separate rooms to begin our massages.
The rooms were very peaceful and quiet with white noise in the background, along with very comforting and relaxing music playing. Jill asked if I had any areas that I would like for her to concentrate on or avoid and I told her no. She instructed me where to put my clothes and belongings and told me that I can disrobe to my comfort level and get on the massage table, under the covers, face down. Just typing this, I can see how, for some people, this would be very uncomfortable to do. I’ve had full body massages before, so I knew the routine and was totally comfortable with it. I didn’t know Jill, and was fine with the fact that she’d be giving me a massage. She’s trained at it and was very professional. Terri, on the other hand, had never gotten a full body massage plus she got a male therapist. She was nervous before getting her massage, but Byron was very sensitive to this and assured her that her experience would be pleasant and comfortable. Terri enjoyed having conversation with Byron during the massage, so the massage therapists here are flexible and will cater your experience to your personality!
I really liked the fact that I could keep my personal belongings in the room with me. I’ve been to other places in the past where I was given a key to a locker and had to put my belongings in the locker. Because I had my nice camera with me and my purse, I was happy that it could stay with me.
The massage was amazing. At first I was a little uptight and it took me some time to deeply relax. But I was impressed with the fact that Jill worked with me on getting as comfortable as I could, giving me a pillow instead of putting my face in the hole of the massage table. She also asked if I needed the heat to the massage table turned up or down. And whenever I would instinctively help her by adjusting my body so she could get to where she was massaging, she would gently tell me to stop and let her do the work. Whenever I get massages, I don’t like to talk. I want to enjoy the massage as fully as I can without socializing with the therapist. Jill followed my lead and only spoke whenever necessary.
After the massage was done, I wished I could have at least another 30 minutes to enjoy. But maybe next time. They told me that some people come in for 120 minute sessions. Wow!
LaVida Massage sells products for anti-aging and healthy skin, aromatherapy soy candles, and Jane Iredale cosmetics.
One thing to remember is to tip your therapist. 20% of the cost of the service is the customary tip amount.
