**READ ME FIRST**
This is YOUR session. Speak up!
Why is this so important? If you want anything changed: pressure, areas worked, music or if you are too hot or too cold ... speak up!
You will not hurt the my feelings by asking for something that will make you more comfortable. As your massage therapist, I want this to be the best experience for you to relax and enjoy.
Also, what you requested in one session may be different in another. If you had a full body massage last time you had a session, but this time you only want your back/neck/shoulders/arms worked, it's perfectly fine to ask.
You will enjoy your sessions so much more!
WHAT WILL MY FIRST SESSION BE LIKE?
You will be asked to fill out a health history form in most cases, this can be done online. After reviewing your intake, I will begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas you would like worked on, if there are any conditions needing to be addressed, and to determine if massage is appropriate for you. I may perform certain assessments to evaluate your condition and to see if you have any presenting complaints.
It is important to list all health concerns and medications so that I can adapt the session to your specific needs without doing any harm.
DO I HAVE TO BE BE COMPLETELY UNDRESSED?
It's up to you. You should undress to your desired level of comfort. For a full body massage, most get completely undressed. However, if you will be more comfortable during the session if you leave your underwear on, that’s fine. I will work around the clothes you left on as best as I can. You will undress in the privacy of your massage room and will be securely covered by a sheet during your massage session, regardless of what you choose to remove..
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A MASSAGE?
For those who use massage as preventative care or to manage daily stress, once or twice a month is common. However, weekly sessions may be necessary if you are receiving massage for injury relief, to increase mobility, or to relieve chronic pain. We will discuss your complaints and goals to determine what is appropriate for you.
WHAT OF FORMS PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
I accept Credit and Health Savings account cards, cash, checks and Venmo.
