It is my intent to provide a safe and healing environment. Your input is vital to this effort, and any feedback about your experience is welcome.
Each client receives fresh linens, and equipment is sanitized between each session. I will assist you on and off the table at your request, otherwise, I will leave the room while you disrobe. Undress only to your level of comfort. While I use professionally accepted draping techniques to insure warmth and modesty, some treatments may require partial nudity. When this is the case, I will always ask permission, and you may always refuse.
Some massage techniques may be uncomfortable, but should never hurt excessively. If you experience pain during your massage, please tell me immediately, and I will adjust or redirect my work. I will be glad to explain what I am doing, and why, at your request.
During your massage I may use various modalities, some from other cultures. There is no doctrine or dogma attached to any of these practices, and their use will not affect any religious beliefs.
It is not unusual for some individuals to experience an emotional release during bodywork or massage. Please be assured that your privacy is important to me, and I hold all that occurs during a session in strict confidence. Any session notes or records that I keep will also be held in confidence, and kept in a locked cabinet. However, your records are available to you if you wish to see them.
Your massage may cause a release of toxins from body tissues, so please remember to drink plenty of water to help flush them from your system.
Sexually suggestive remarks or advances will not be tolerated, and will result in termination of the massage.
I urge all my clients to take responsibility for their health, and to become as informed as possible in order to make good health care choices.
