When arriving at Wholistic Massage Centre at our Downtown Edmonton location, you will be welcomed by our friendly staff.

We recommend coming in 15 minutes before your first appointment to fill out an intake form to record any medical history, injuries or physical conditions we should be aware of. This form helps the registered massage therapist in their assessment and consultation. To save time, you can print out and complete the form before you arrive. 

Please ensure that you bring in your benefit information and a doctor's note if it is required by your insurance provider. 

Once you have completed your form, you will have a 15-minute in-depth consultation with your registered massage therapist to discuss your overall health and medical history. This initial consultation is vital as it helps us customize treatment in a way that is able to not only provide relief but identify and heal the root cause of the pain. 

At Wholistic Massage, it is our priority to provide you with a pleasant and relaxing experience.

During Your Massage

Your registered massage therapist will leave the room to allow you to disrobe to a level you are comfortable with. When you are ready, lay on the table and cover yourself with the linens. It is time for you to unwind, relax and enjoy this massage session. Your therapist will only uncover the area of your body being worked on. 

During your session, feel free to communicate with your therapist about any concerns or questions that you may have. Let them know if you are experiencing any discomfort or pain. This is all about you!


Once your massage is complete, your therapist will leave the room so that you can get dressed. Once you are dressed, the therapist will be waiting for you to address any follow-up questions or concerns that you may have. They will also advise you on when they should see you next depending on how the treatment went. We recommend drinking lots of water as your muscles will need it! 

We look forward to seeing you! 

For any additional questions, you may have about what to expect when getting a massage, or questions on our other services including aromatherapy, reflexology, acupressure or psychosomatic therapy, please connect with us today for more information.
