Can massage help me?
Massage is one of the oldest healing arts. Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use. The ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching.
Here are some conditions that I have found massage addresses very well:
neck/shoulder pain, sciatic pain, migraines, plantar fasciitis, torticollis, TMJ dysfunction
For some conditions, I've found massage can help as part of an on-going program of pain management:
multiple aclerosis, neuropathy from chemotherapy, PLS (Primary Lateral Sclerosis), cervical dystonia, rotator cuff injuries\\
Do I have to get undressed?
No, certainly not. However, your massage will be more effective if your therapist can directly contact the skin. All clients are covered with a sheet during the massage, and the therapist will only uncover the part of the body being worked on. Genitals and breasts will remain covered during the entire massage.
Does massage hurt?
I try to work within my client's tolerance level. Some massage modalities use more pressure than others, but clients are encouraged to direct the intensity of the pressure. If you want more or less pressure, please say so. If you're uncomfortable for any reason -- you're too hot, too cold, you don't like the music, you need to change positions, please speak up.
Do I tip?
I never expect tips, but gratefully accept them. The best tip you can give me is a referral to friends, family and co-workers.
Can I talk during my massage?
Certainly. It is your massage. Some clients like to talk, other don't. Your therapist will take your lead on this.
Note: I do not perform any form of sexual massage
