Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


Why should I get a massage?

Massage has been used for over 3000 years in various cultures throughout the world.  From Japan, to the Greece, to America, people for millennia have found massage to be beneficial in many ways.

Aside from the obvious aim of reducing tension and pain, massage can relieve stress, improve circulation, increase energy, and restore range of motion.  Both anecdotal and scientific studies have proved time and time again the benefits of regular massage.

Combined with a complete assessment that draws on a medical background, I will utilize various techniques and modalities during a session to create the greatest improvement possible.  Although results are often seen after just one massage session, it is often after several regular treatments that clients really begin to see the impact on their lives.

Will it hurt?

Depending on the style of massage, some discomfort is possible.  However, there are techniques that I can use that will help reduce that discomfort.  The important thing is to communicate so I can adjust to get you the best massage possible!

Do I have to get naked?

No.  You should disrobe to your comfort level, with the understanding that certain techniques are not usable through clothing.  In addition, I use standard massage draping techniques, keeping you covered and warm.  Only the area I'm working on will be exposed, and again, only to your comfort level.  Please communicate and ask questions!
