ABOUT YOUR MASSAGE
What should I wear?
Massage is traditionally performed on bare skin, but only the specific area being worked on is exposed at any time -- an arm, a leg, your back. Areas that you would not bare at the beach are never exposed or worked on. If you feel more comfortable leaving your underwear on, you may certainly do so.
You will have privacy before your massage to undress and get underneath the sheet on the massage table. You will will have privacy afterward to dress.
What can I expect?
A clean, comfortable, serene, and safe massage environment: all equipment is sanitized; lighting, music, and temperature can be adjusted to suit you.
Privacy and confidentiality: On your first visit, I will give you a brief medical history form to fill out. However, intake information and session details will be shared with a third party only upon your written request.
Open treatment: I do not discriminate on the grounds of age, gender, race, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status, political affiliation, physical limitation, or body type
Try not to eat a full meal within two hours of your massage.
If you have time, a shower prior to your session may help you relax in advance.
Be prepared to remove your watch and other jewelry.
The session can be customized to conform to your specific requirements. This is your time, so please don't hesitate to let me know what you would like the session to include. If lying in some position is not comfortable for you, let me know: there are always alternatives.
During the session, I may check in with you a few times to make sure you are comfortable. I welcome questions and feedback before, during, and after the session.
Breathing is an important component of bodywork. I generally tell my clients to focus on their breathing during the massage. Give yourself permission to relax and let go of stress and tension; with each breath, allow yourself to melt into the table.
After your massage, try to allow yourself some time to re-adjust to your regularly scheduled programming! Keep well hydrated, and if possible, do some gentle stretches before bed.
