Treatment Methods

Heal Your Body

Your appointment is a learning experience, and tuning into your body’s innate wisdom requires a dedicated one-on-one approach. Through your massage experience you will become more aware to your body's needs.  

These methods can be used individually in a massage or in combination to achieve a more effective massage. I will customized your treatments using a combination of these methods to address your specific set of concerns that will get you feeling back to yourself and better than ever in no time.

I specialize in a unique therapeutic approach that combines methods to gently unwind the soft tissues and restores proper functioning of these tissues. This technique is a slow and time-consuming process, but well worth the enormous benefits you will experience compared to a typical massage.

My Mission:

To provide a relaxing high quality therapeutic massage tailored to meet the needs for each client.

You inhale the essential oil molecules and/or absorb them through your skin from the massage oil.  These oils have beneficial affects in your mind and body by influencing the nervous system, inducing relaxation, and enhance breathing.

If you are sensitive to scents and do not want me to use them during your massage, please inform me of your preference.

This is your chance to stop mistreating your body with toxic medicine. My holistic approach to healing will make you feel complete again.

Massage Expectations & Procedures

Your Comfort is My Goal

I encourage open communication with my clients to be able to make them as comfortable as possible.  The client's specific needs for the session are discussed for a few minutes prior to the onset of the massage. This allows me to tailor each massage by giving special attention these areas.  Please inform me of any discomfort whether it is the amount of pressure, temperature, aroma, or any other thing that is making you uncomfortable.

My Mission:

To provide a relaxing high quality therapeutic massage tailored to meet the needs for each client.


I keep my practice professional by maintaining proper draping at all times which is required by law.  A sheet is typically used for draping during most of my massages.  However a small towel may be requested to be used instead of the sheet by the client to meet your preference.


On my intake form, I ask for you to indicate an approximate pressure tolerance ranging from light, firm to deep.  Sometimes you are unsure of the amount of pressure you like because the amount of pressure is objective from people to people, the amount of pressure can vary from one body area to another, and the amount of pressure can also vary from session to session.  This question just gives me an idea of your pressure preferences.  Anytime the pressure becomes too uncomfortable, please distinctly inform me.


In our discussion prior to the session, I ask for you to indicate an approximate temperature tolerance especially when using the Hot Stone Therapy.  Anytime the temperature becomes too uncomfortable (hot or cold), please distinctly inform me. This also includes the temperature of the room, table, and warm moist towels.

Warm Moist Towels

I like to use extra touches such as warm moist towels as heat therapy to enhance your relaxation, soothe your sore muscles, and open your sinuses.  These may be placed on the neck, face, chest, and/or back as time allows during an hour massages or longer.  Not all people are comfortable with objects on their face. If this is the case, the towels can be placed on other areas, or eliminated all together.  Please distinctly inform me if you are uncomfortable with the temperature or placement of the towels.

Table Massage Disrobing

I am often asked by my clients how much of their clothing do they need to remove.  The answer depends on the type of massage required to address your specific needs. Foremost, I encourage my client's to only undress to their comfort level.  However, for the best overall body massage experience, totally undressing allows my therapy to have free movement over your body tissues, so that it is not hindered from clothing. My professional draping is used and important for that reason.  In the case of only working on the upper body, then it would be suitable to leave on your lower clothing.

Chair Massage Disrobing

Clients remain clothed during a chair massage that is off-site and most remain clothed in my office as well.  However, in my office, a few clients choose to remove their tops so I am not obstructed during the massage. In this case, a towel is used to cover the front of your body.

You will enjoy my individual attention to your healthcare.
