Thank you for visiting my online home and scheduling a massage with me.
This page may answer preliminary questions for first time clients.
Please go to the forms page and there you may follow the link to fill out your initial intake form.
Your first visit is important and will set the tone for any future work we may do together. I ask you to arrive 10 minutes in advance of the time we have set aside for the session. There will be information we must share concerning your general health and what your expectations and needs are for this first session.
Product used: Sacred Earth brand massage lotion or Extra Virgin organic coconut oil (at client's request for a more simple product)
I use a premium professional massage cream for the majority of my work. It is a nonstaining, unscented product that allows the work to be comfortable and safe without feeling greasy. It is plant derived and extremely low toxicity. Good for me and (more importantly!) for you. These products are both appropriate for massage during pregnancy.
Treatment Room Atmosphere: Calm, quiet and comfortable.
I use heat to your best advantage with table heaters, warm towels, rice bags and warm stones. They offer general comfort but also assist in bringing point-specific warmth to muscle and tendons that can benefit from increased blood flow. Conversely, I can create a cooler atmosphere for anyone who has a personal need for less heat.
Communication: Key to a better experience
Everyone has individual needs for their session and I encourage you to express those both prior to and during your massage. You can always remember that each massage may be as general or as focused as needed. I can easily spend an hour on someone's feet or their unhappy shoulder girdle if that is wanted.
