Your Therapeutic Treatment

Intake

  • We will start with a 5 min verbal intake. I will ask preliminary questions to explore what is going on in your life and your health and wellness goals.

  • This information will help me to understand you and any challenges you are experiencing and get to know how you operate in life so I can structure the session to help you achieve your health and wellness goals.

 

Privacy

  • Before your massage, you may be asked to remove clothing to your level of comfort. I can work around any comfort level.

  • I will leave the room while you undress.  Some treatments are done fully clothed such as Thai massage and sometimes CranioScaral therapy.

Environment

  • I will check in on pressure and comfort throughout your appointment. I encourage you to tell me if there is anything you need during massage. It can feel difficult to talk when deeply relaxed so even saying something like “less pressure” is totally enough. If you're uncomfortable at any time, tell me.

  • The massage table is padded, and may have extra attachments or cushions, such as a face cradle, which allows you to lie face down without turning your head or neck. If you need something that helps your body feel more supported, I have lots of pillows, just let me know.

Massage Therapy Session

  • I use shea butter, coco butter, mango butter and coconut oil. I also use Doterra essential oils. If you're allergic to oils or lotions, tell me beforehand.

  • If you're receiving hot stone massage, make sure you're comfortable with the temperature of the stones, let's avoid getting burned.

  • I may incorporate Gua Sha, silicone cupping or heat packs and ice packs during the treatment.

  • I am very intuitive, and things may come up in my head that I may feel called to tell you, if this happens, I will ask if I can share this with you. You always have the option to decline.

  • I use guided imagery and it may or may not come up in your session.  My work is led by holding space to listen to what your spirit and body communicate to me. My sessions are also led by you and I encourage you to share anything that comes up while in treatment. I work with the mind, body and spirit so all information is relative.

  • After your massage, I will give you a couple minutes to slowly get up and get dressed in privacy.

  • I will offer you any information I have that may help you after your treatment and a couple suggestions might be available for self care. Do only what feels right for you as my suggestions are just that.

  • You are always welcome to call or text me if any questions arise after your session or if you have any great news to share about how you are feeling. We are in this together.
