WHAT ARE YOUR session POLICIES?
Payment must be made before or at the time of your session. We ask that you provide 24 hours notice for cancellations or scheduling changes. Changes made without 24 hours notice will be charged the full price of the session.
Where are you located?
I travel for an extra fee on a limited basis. Call to find out if we can work something out that is feasible for the both of us. Some restrictions apply.
WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED SESSION LENGTH?
Sessions range from 60, 90 to 120 minutes. Traditionally, most people get a 60 or a 90 minute massage. Full body Thai Massage sessions are 90 Minutes – allowing ample time for addressing the entire body. Shorter Thai Massage sessions are available but we will have to skip some of the poses. If a specific ailment is present, 120 minutes is recommended to fully address the issue.
AS PROFESSIONAL HEALERS WE ARE DEDICATED TO PROVIDING A COMPLETELY SAFE AND ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE FOR OUR CLIENTS. OUR WORK IS STRICTLY THERAPEUTIC AND NON-SEXUAL.
What should I do after my session?
You are free to go about your day, but I recommend that you take a little time to integrate your experience. Take a long walk through the park. Enjoy a warm cup of tea. Journal. Meditate. Take a hot shower or bath. Nourish your body with healthy foods. My goal with these sessions to gently nudge you onto a path of self-care and love. Do whatever makes you feel relaxed and happy.
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your session to fill out a health history form and to discuss your areas of focus. If you are late to your session, we will do our best to accommodate you for the time you have left without penalizing the following client.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage is performed undressed or down to undergarments and clients are draped under a sheet.
Thai Massage is performed clothed. Please wear something comfortable and free from snaps, zippers, or buttons. You may also want to bring warm layers in case you get cold during your session. If needed, clothes will be provided.
Although the main emphasis in the practice of Massage is usually on health prevention (as all disease manifests first on the energy level and can be treated there before it becomes physical), it can also be of great therapeutic benefit for a range of specific problems and conditions such as headaches, back pain, digestive disorders, shoulder and neck tension, joint pain, menstruation problems, insomnia, and other stress related conditions.
WHAT IS A TYPICAL SESSION LIKE?
Swedish and Deep Tissue session are done on a massage table with the client undressed to a comfortable level under a sheet or drape. The practitioner skillfully drapes the body to protect the clients modesty. Swedish Massage is more longer sweeping strokes called effleurage. Deep tissue will target specific muscles with knuckles, thumbs, forearms and elbows. Deep tissue also has light stretching to release body tensions.
Thai Massage is done on a firm mat on the floor with the client dressed in light comfortable clothes. The practitioner uses their thumbs, palms, elbows, knees, and feet to apply a combination of acupressure, gentle rocking and twisting, joint and spine mobilizations, and assisted yoga stretches. With the healer using body weight instead of strength, and a steady and meditative rhythm, Thai Massage looks and feels like a graceful dance between giver and receiver.
