1. Extra cleaning and hygiene measures are being taken place in the massage office between each client. This means the face cradle will be sprayed with a 70% alcohol solution.
2. It is suggested that upon entering the massage office clients go straight to the sink to fully wash their hands for 20 seconds. This will help in the cleanliness of the office and reduction of any possible contamination.
3. For any upcoming massage appointments you will also notice that in your reminder texts (in addition to confirming the massage appointment) you will also be asked to verify that you are not showing symptoms of being sick. This does not include allergy symptoms such as clear mucus discharge from the nose, swollen eyes, and other various seasonal allergy reactions. Symptoms that are of concern are: trouble breathing, coughing, and above all a fever.
If you have flu like symptoms please cancel your massage appointment as soon as possible. If you show up to the massage office with flu like symptoms, you will be asked to go home and your appointment will be rescheduled.
4. Mask wearing is optional for both myself and clients, so please speak up if you have a preference. Thank You!

One of my specialties is in headache/migraine management. Much of the muscle tightness that can cause headaches, originate in the shoulder and neck areas. Tight muscles that put pressure on nerves can create pain that can be felt into the shoulder, neck, head and face. This pressure can feel like a headache, migraine, numbness, facial twitching, ringing in the ears, sensitive sinuses, and blurry vision. Although the neck and shoulder muscles are very important to massage, in any of the above cases, the scalp and jaw will be amazing beneficial in aiding the reduction of muscle tightness. Please be aware that a very minimal amount of oil (if any) will be used on the scalp and face.
You will only be asked to undress to your level of comfort. Please understand that whatever clothes you decide to leave on may limit what or how I am able to massage certain areas. You should also take comfort in knowing that, as a professional licensed massage therapist, your body will never be improperly exposed and you will be treated in a respectful manner at all times. Typically people will either undress down to just their underwear or nothing at all. For a better understanding of what to expect at your massage appointment click Steps through massage
They are many forms/techniques for massage that are available today and it can be overwhelming to know what you need or want. Before coming to see me for an appointment, the basics of what you need to know is knowing what you want the end goal of the massage to be.
Most sciatica and lower back comes from tight glut muscles, which are located in the buttocks. These muscles can pinch down on nerves and cause a lot of discomfort and pain that can radiate up into the lower back or down the leg. To relieve this tightness in the gluts, it may be necessary to massage them if massaging the lower back and legs does not relieve the pain. However, if you are not comfortable having your gluts exposed for massage, do not fear! Over the sheet massage that is mostly comprised of broad compression's, can be VERY effective in relieving glut tightness and sciatica. You may also want to consider manual assisted stretching. An aided stretch can result in a much more effective stretch, and there by reducing pain. Each person will have different circumstances that will change how the massage will go and will be talk through before your massage session.
