THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM
Answers to your questions you might have been embarrassed or afraid to ask before booking your service:
DO I HAVE TO GET NAKED???
The short answer is "No!"
We have several services where it is expected that you stay fully clothed. Those include "Safe & Sound", foot services, certain focused massages, brows and lashes services, and facial waxing.
The rest of our services only require taking off clothes to your comfort level and to afford access to the part of the body the services is being performed on. Everyone is welcome to keep underwear on no matter what service is booked. This includes Ashiatsu massage. However being naked is recommended.
We will always respect your privacy and comfort level! This includes use of professional draping, not being present in the room while dressing/undressing, and responding immediately to requests for modesty.
WHAT IF I AM UNCOMFORTABLE WITH PEOPLE SEEING AND TOUCHING MY BODY? CAN I STILL GET SERVICES?
At Oodelah, we provide custom services to allow our professional practitioners to meet the needs of the people on their service table. This means we can accommodate different levels of modesty, different body types, different skin types, and different cultures and preferences.
The human body comes in all shapes, sizes, softness, colors, abilities, and genders. Our Oodelah team members are trained professionals and provide extra care to provide a welcoming and relaxing environment to provide people with different levels of body image feelings and modesty.
NO...SERIOUSLY. I WEIGH TOO MUCH, HAVE TOO MANY MOLES, I'M COVERED IN STRETCH MARKS, BODY POOCHES, CREASES, SCARS, HAIR, BLEMISHES, ETC.
Seriously...We've got you!
When we say all are welcome here, we mean it. We are trained professional providers of self care, pain management, massage, skin care, stretching, yoga, etc. We are not bothered, embarrassed, uncomfortable, or judgmental about bodies! Your body got you where you are today. Let us help you celebrate it, care for it, and even love it!
WHAT IF I FALL ASLEEP AND SNORE, OR GET GOOSE BUMPS, PASS GAS, OR DROOL??
Guess what...it happens! It happens a lot!! It is also completely normal when a body gets really relaxed. Since relaxation is part of the goal of our services, if you snore in a puddle of your own drool...we consider it a complement!!
I GET UNCOMFORTABLE LAYING ON MY BACK (OR STOMACH). DO I HAVE TO LAY IN THOSE POSITIONS?
No! We are here to help you relax and get comfortable. While some people struggle to lay on their stomach (larger bust, rounded tummies, claustrophobia...), or their backs (larger bodies, breathing challenges, etc.) you are still able to receive bodywork from Oodelah. We have ways of positioning bodies (sometimes on their sides) to help alleviate pain, discomfort, or stress. Just talk to your practitioner about what you prefer!
WHAT HAPPENS IF I GET AN ERECTION WHILE HAVING BODYWORK DONE?
The first thing to know is that this does happen. It is a normal response. Do Not Panic! Some people are more sensitive to touch that others. Some people are more relaxed than others. As human beings, our bodies physiologically react to touch without our ability to control it. The more your body relaxes, the more likely it is to respond to touch. Oodelah practitioners have been trained to respond in a professional manner that promotes dignity.
Our team members will respond professionally and keep you covered. It will not be a big deal and there will be no judgement. The important thing is continue to act appropriately and in a mature manner. If they feel like a client has been inappropriate, violated boundaries, or presents a safety risk, they will terminate the service immediately without refund.
