Your personalized bodywork session uses the fundamentals of traditional Swedish massage.  Your session will be tailored specifically to you based on your needs and goals. Other techniques that may be used in your session include: deep touch, myofascial release, trigger point therapy and Reiki.

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger points. This process can be quite painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.

Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, I work directly with your energy field to remove blockages, detoxify your system, and restore your vital life force energy. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to conduct the necessary energy force between us. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain.

Cancellation/Late Policy

Please provide a 24 hour notice of any schedule changes or cancellation requests. Please

understand that when you cancel or miss your appointment without providing a 24 hour notice we are often unable to fill that

appointment time. This is an inconvenience to your therapist and also means our other clients miss the chance to receive

services they need. For this reason, you will be charged the service fee for your scheduled session.  We also reserve the right to require a credit card number to be given to book future

appointments so that appropriate fees may be charged if a late cancellation does occur.

We understand that emergencies can arise and illnesses do occur at inopportune times. If you have a fever, a known infection,

or have experienced vomiting or diarrhea within 24 hours prior to your appointment time, we request that you cancel your

session. Inclement weather may also result in the need for late cancellations. We will do our best to give advanced notice if we

are closing or need to cancel due to bad weather and we ask you to do the same. Please do not risk your own safety trying to

make your appointment. Late cancellation due to emergency, illness, or inclement weather will generally not result in any

missed session charges, but this is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Late Arrival Policy

We request that you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment time to allow time to fill out any required paperwork as

well as answer any intake questions your therapist may have. We understand that issues can arise that may cause you to be late

for your appointment. However, we ask that you call to inform us if this ever occurs so we can do our best to accommodate

you. Appointment times are reserved for each client, so oftentimes we cannot exceed that reserved time without making the

next client late. For this reason, arriving after your appointment time may result in loss of time from your massage so that your

session ends at the scheduled time. Full service fees will be charged even when sessions are shortened due to late arrival. In

return we will do our best to be on time, and if we are unable to do so we will add time to your session to make up for our late

arrival or adjust the service charge accordingly.

Inappropriate Behavior Policy

Massage therapy is for relaxation and therapeutic purposes only. There is absolutely no sexual component to massage

whatsoever. Any insinuation, joke, gesture, conversation, or request otherwise will result in immediate termination of your

session and a refusal of any and all services in the future. You will be charged the full service fee regardless of the length of

your session. Depending on the behavior exhibited we may also file a report with the local authorities if necessary. Treat your

therapist with respect and dignity and you will be treated the same in return.
