How long should you book for?

Ideally for your first massage appointment a 60 minute booking is preferred – as 30 minutes is generally too rushed (by the time we discuss areas to work on and health history plus being on the table). Therefore, allow one hour for the first session and then you can discuss with your therapist how long you may need for follow-up sessions.

Treatment times can vary depending on the reason for the treatment and history, but generally range from 30 to 90 minutes. A treatment for a small area of the body such as tennis/golfer’s elbow or tight calves or focusing just on neck and shoulders may take 30 minutes, a treatment covering either the upper or lower body typically takes 60 minutes, and a full body massage from head to toe requires 90 minutes.

We offer three options for treatment times in the CBD clinic: 30, 60 and 90 minutes. At our Melville clinic, we offer a 45 minute appointment in addition to 30 and 60 minute appointments.
