Q: Is tipping common with mobile massage? I don't usually tip my RMT.
A: If tipping is your preferred way to express gratitude for mobile RMT, they are allowed. Tipping is optional as with everywhere you go, and your ongoing treatment involvement is priority #1.

A: Its best to take a rest day and do some light bodyweight exercises after your treatment. Doing too much after you are relaxed can actually put you at risk for injury.
Q: Is it normal to be sore after massage?
A: Sometimes it is, for a number of reasons. Tight muscles don't always like to be changed, especially if they've been that way for a while. Adaptation is normal and occasionally things feel worse, even though you can visibly see that you're getting better with improved range of motion for example. Your RMT should always check in during the treatment to make sure its within a comfortable pain tolerance so be honest with them! Soreness after treatment may last up to 3 days maximum.
