If you've never received a massage before, no worries. The massage environment is designed to be the most safe and comfortable space you can imagine. Upon your arrival, I will take you through every step so the only thing you need to focus on is letting go of your daily stresses.
First we will go through your needs, expectations, and heath concerns. Next, you will disrobe to your comfort level and lie on the massage table. Your privacy is super-important and you will be covered with a blanket at all times except for the part of the body that we are working with. If you would rather be clothed, I suggest that you try a Shiatsu massage, which is performed in comfortable clothing such as sweats or yoga wear.
Once you are on the table, the massage will begin. Warm oil is applied and worked into your skin and muscles. Depending on the style of massage, the pressure may be light and relaxing or deep and invigorating. We can adjust the pressure at any time. I will check in with you to make sure that it is comfortable and you can chime in at any time too :-)
After the massage, you will get dressed and we will go over areas of your body that needed some extra attention during the massage. Stretches and self care tips may be recommended.
It is good to drink plenty of water and plan on taking it easy for the rest of the day. You may notice changes throughout the week after the massage as your body continues to restore.
I encourage you to call or e-mail me if you have any questions or health concerns after the massage.
