Sessions are completely private and confidential. We will determine your current physical condition, health history, lifestyle stress level and areas of pain during our initial conversation. You can undress to your level of comfort.
A sheet will be draped over your body, and only the body part being worked on will be undraped. Massage on healthy tissue should feel good; with an area of injury or chronic pain, however, you may feel discomfort that usually lessens within minutes.
