Frequently Asked Questions

Often I get very similar questions about what is involved in massage(s) and my working practice. On this page I tried to list the most common questions and answers. If you still have any other question, do not hestitate to contact me.

I have never had a massage before. What do I wear? The most important thing while receiving a massage is that you are comfortable. I tell my clients to undress to their level of comfort. You may undress completely, or wear as much clothing as you feel comfortable with. You will be covered at all times (with the exception of the body part being worked on).

Do you use oils and lotions? Yes I do. It is water-dispersible and will not stain clothing. If you have allergies to nuts or oils, please let me know.

Will it hurt? Even deep tissue massage should not hurt. I use a "relative pain scale" to ensure I am always working with what is comfortable and acceptable to you.

Do you clean the table/chair after each client? Absolutely. Fresh, clean linens are used for every session.

Can I get a massage if I'm pregnant? Yes! It's wonderful for an expecting mother and her child.

Is it okay to receive massage if I have a history of physical abuse? Yes, however it is a good idea if you are receiving counseling to introduce your counselor and massage therapist. They can coordinate the best possible way to make your session as comfortable and productive as possible.

What happens if I have to cancel my appointment? Please just give me 24 hours notice, by telephone.
