WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST SESSION?
I will aim to arrive about 10 minutes before the session (parking permitting) to get set up, after which we'll do a brief intake to get a sense of how you're feeling and what your goals are for the day. If you book a Deep Tissue Massage, I'll leave the room to allow you to disrobe. If you book a Therapeutic Bodywork session, please wear comfortable and flexible clothing to allow for unrestricted movement. Workout clothing like sweatpants, leggings, shorts, and comfortable tops work well.
DO YOU HAVE GROUP RATES?
Yes I do! I am able to schedule up to 8 hours of bodywork in a day with additional meal and rest breaks. There is a 10% discount for sessions scheduled after my second hour in one location. I would be thrilled to work with your family, with your work colleagues, at your next outdoor event, or at your next party. Get in touch and we'll work together to craft a plan just for you.
*(discounted sessions are not eligible).
WHERE DO THE SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
I am mobile so they will take place in your home or office. My setups are flexible to most spaces as long as there is room to lie down. I'll bring speakers and some options for music, but please feel free to send me a Spotify playlist if you'd like. I don't have any concerns about pets and they are even welcome to be in the room if they are calm.
WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND I DO AFTER A SESSION?
Always hydrate. Massage and bodywork move fluid throughout the body, oftentimes fluid that has been stuck for a while. Hydrating will help your body eliminate the old and bring in fresh nourishment. Your muscles may be sore and a hot bath, especially with Epsom salt, can help with that. Also, gentle stretching and flexing of the sore muscles will help the fascial matrix reorganize and pump nutrients into the muscles.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM BODYWORK?
Anyone can benefit from this, and I generally recommend 12 years or older to receive the full effect. If you have sensations, relationships, or a body of any kind, it's for you. This work has the range to meet a variety of people on all extremes of physical, emotional, and social spectrums. Certain medical conditions that require specific techniques (such as cancer patients or pregnancy) may require modification.
COVID-19 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
I am vaccinated against COVID-19 and stay updated with current boosters. By default, I will be wearing a KN-95 mask during our sessions. Since we will likely be in your home or another familiar space, you are not required to wear a mask. Given the close proximity of massage and bodywork, please let me know if you are exposed to or test positive for COVID-19 before, during, or after a session so we can manage a safe course of action for everyone.
