There are some instances when the use of massage might not be appropriate. Be sure to consult your physician before initiating any program.
As your therapist, I will do everything possible to ensure that your experience is positive and rewarding. You may be asked about your reasons for getting work done, current physical conditions, medical history, lifestyle, stress level, areas of pain, and other pertinent topics.You’ll be asked to undress in private and get under the sheet and blanket, on a comfortable padded table. You may leave your undergarments on or off, at your discretion. I will un-drape only the part of your body being massaged, ensuring that your modesty is respected at all times.
Your should expect a peaceful and comfortable environment for your session. The room will always be the perfect temperature for your relaxation. I would like to know if there is any kind of distraction, whether physical discomfort, room temperature, volume of music, or any other source that diminishes the experience of your massage.
