Your Therapeutic Treatment

 Before Your Session

  • Please arrive 5-10 min before your session. The front door is located by the road and through a gate and will be unlocked. There is a Zen Den where you are welcome to water or can make some tea while you relax before your appointment. 

 Intake ​

  • We will start with a 5-10 min verbal intake and grounding. 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 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

  • Some treatments are done fully clothed such as Thai massage and  CranioSacral therapy. Please wear comfortable pants with stretch or room for movement and a t-shirt.  During Thai massage, you may get cold, bring comfy socks and you may prefer to wear a long sleeve t-shirt. 

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

  • I will leave the room while you get ready for your session.

 Environment

  • I have some control over the temperature of the room and have a heated pad on the massage table. 

  • 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.

  Therapeutic Session

  • I use shea butter, cocoa 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 a 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 will check in on pressure and comfort throughout your appointment. I encourage you to tell me if there is anything you need during your 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.

  • 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 Session

  • 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.

  • I recommend that you take some time after your session to let yourself relax and give yourself time. There is a relaxation room (Zen Den) at my office for that very purpose. You are welcome to hang out and have some tea as long as you need. 

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

  • I recommend keeping a journal as well. Some prompts may be; How did you feel before and then after your session? What sensations came up during your session? Where did you notice sensation? What feelings came up, and were they resolved?  Did you have any insight or any intention that you want to carry forward?
