What to Expect at Your Massage
Please try and arrive at least fifteen to twenty minutes prior to your session if it is your first time working with me to allow time to fill out a brief intake form.
Clients will relax in a quiet, comfortable and clean environment. We will briefly discuss your specific needs and injuries, then I will leave the room to prepare for your treatment while you undress to any degree that you are comfortable with. Depending on your specific needs, you will either start facing up or down fully under the sheets or blankets on a clean massage table. I will keep you appropriately draped at all times, only uncovering areas that I am working. In the Thai style of massage, no oil is used, and all work is done fully clothed on a mattress on the floor.
My style of massage is integrative, so I will be incorporating many techniques to address any issues I find, with your permission. This massage is to your benefit and yours alone and I hope to work together to achieve your goals. I encourage open communication around pressure as well as discomfort of any kind. I will be checking in with you throughout your session to ensure your needs are being met to the best of my ability.

Benefits of Massage
Beyond pain relief from small aches and pains, massage is an essential component to maintaining overall health in the mind, body, and spirit.
We often get a massage when we feel "stressed out" or when an unavoidable pain in the back or neck surfaces. These are simply put, symptoms of the nervous system and patterns of our everyday life that have now surfaced in the physical body that can no longer be ignored. Incorporating massage into your overall healing plan can be beneficial in a number of ways including:
Stress Reduction and Relaxation
Increased Energy and Athletic Performance
Increased Flexibility and Improved Mobility

Neuro-Muscular Technique (NMT) NMT is highly effective for clients who present with chronic pain and is often successful in reducing or eliminating even longstanding painful conditions. Some of the techniques can also be applied to acute injuries and for post-surgical care; may be help to improve performance in sport or dance and to prevent injuries due to these activities.

Thai massage, Thai yoga massage, or Thai yoga therapy incorporates acupressure, energy meridian work, and yoga-like stretching. Thai massage is different from many Western forms of massage in that there is no oil used, the therapist uses a mattress on the floor instead of a table, and the client remains completely clothed throughout the session. It is like someone "doing yoga to you." Thai massage applies deep but broad pressure making it the perfect complement to any athletic regime or sport. It is best suited for increasing range of motion, circulation, opening of the heart, and deep calm.
