Frequently Asked Questions
Where will my massage session take place?
Your massage or bodywork session will take place in a private quiet room at my office location and you will lie on a table specifically designed for your massage comfort. In chair office massages are available by request.
Do I have to completely undress for the massage?
You should undress to your level of comfort. You will be properly draped during the entire session. Once undressed to your comfort level, relax onto the table and cover yourself with a clean sheet.
What parts of my body will be massaged?
A typical full-body massage session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders.
What should I do during the massage session?
Feel free to ask me any questions about the upcoming massage. During the massage, make yourself comfortable. I will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the massage session. Many people just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they need more or less pressure, or have any other questions about the massage session.
How will I feel after the massage or bodywork session?
Most people feel very relaxed and a relief from tension and stress.

Yes. before you begin your session please inform me regarding any health problems you may have or prescription medications you are currently take. If you are under a doctor's care, it is strongly advised that you check with your doctor prior to your massage session to see if you need a written recommendation. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required. A doctor's consent and release is require for any pre-natal massage.
