What types of massage I offer?
 I am trained in a variety of massage techniques and styles.  When I do a massage therapy session, I use the massage techniques I believe will be best for you depending on your needs.  You may be feeling stressed out and need pure relaxaion massage or you may have woken up in the morning and you can't move your neck.  for each of these different situation, I would use different approaches and draw on different techniques.

Does anyone fall asleep during a treatment? 
Frequently.  Sometimes people sleep for five or ten minutes  Sometimes they drift in and out of sleep.

I just came from work and didn't have time to shower, is that horrible? 
No, I appreciate clients washing before a treatment, but it's not a problem if you don't have time.

What if I didn't shave my legs? 
It doesn't matter to me.

How many people do I treat in a day? 
I usually treat a maximum of 4 people a day.

What will the massage or bodywork feel like?
A relaxing Swedish massage is often a baseline for clients. In a general Swedish massage, your session may start with broad, flowing strokes that will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension. Often, a light oil or lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. The oil also helps hydrate your skin. You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort so that another approach may be taken. Massage and bodywork are most effective when your body is not resisting.

Do I get massage treatments? 
Yes, I trade treatments regularly with other massage therapists.

What should I do during the massage or bodywork session?
 Everything you say during your treatment is completely confidential.  So is your file, your health history form and your identity as my client.

How will I feel after the massage or bodywork session?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your massage.

What are the benefits of massage and bodywork?
Massage and bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.

Are there any medical conditions that would make massage or bodywork inadvisable?
Yes. That's why it's imperative that, before you begin your session, the practitioner asks general health questions. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor's care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.
