What to Expect

Please plan to arrive a few minutes early for your first appointment so you can fill out a health history form. It is important that I have a thorough knowledge of your health history to ensure a safe treatment.

It is requested that all clients shower prior to receiving massage. Once you arrive, we will begin by reviewing your health history and then we will create a treatment plan together, based on your needs. 

I will then leave the room so you can undress down to your comfort level and get under the sheet on the table.  You will remain discreetly draped the entire session with only the area I am working undraped, and a breast drape will be used when needed.  Undressing to just the bottom underwear remaining is typically preferred, unless your session includes more in-depth bodyreading, then keeping all underwear on is preferred.  You are encouraged to undress only to your comfort level.  Once you are settled on the table, I will knock before entering the room to begin the session.

I generally work with some sort of ambient music playing, but I will gladly change the music or work in silence if you prefer.  I will check in with you about pressure, temperature, and general comfort, but please remember that only you can feel what is going on inside your own body, and that you should feel free to tell me if anything is at all painful or uncomfortable.  I do my best work when I am quiet and focused, so you can expect me to remain fairly silent during the session, except to check in with you and when I need your participation. When your session is over, I will again leave the room to allow you to get dressed.

All sessions are completely confidential.

Why Massage?

Massage is a form of bodywork that promotes well-being and health through the manipulation of soft tissue and nurturing touch. The benefits of massage therapy include improved circulation and breath, reduction of stress and anxiety, increased energy and space in the body, and a greater sense of the mind-body connection.
