The first time a therapist works with a client, it's an introduction for both to discover the best course of action for future therapy. Because every person is different, a cookie-cutter process just won't get the job done. We'll need to discuss how your current activities affect your wellness and how massage can help you, then I'll need to have you actively participate in a hands-on dialog to discover your focus areas. The hands-on time may be anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes, with discussion & consultation before and after possibly taking as much as 45 minutes.
An initial consultation is for a new client with whom I have not worked before. After our initial consultation, standard rates apply.
Establish a retainer account and get four hours of massage time for a single $200 fee.
Prior to massage, a Jacuzzi soak in epsom salts & essential oils will help relax muscles and allow the hands-on massage time to be more effective.
My style of bodywork tends to combine some of the flowing characteristics of Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi, stretches from Thai massage, the basic kneading, percussion & manipulation of Swedish massage, and some trigger point therapy, where those painful knots are directly palpated and worked out. This type of session is done on an adjustable, wooden massage table.
For those times when you don't need focused therapy to address chronic issues, a relaxation session can help center you and address everyday stress. This type of bodywork involves more Swedish & Lomi-style massage, without trigger point or other heavy therapeutic styles, and is done on an adjustable, wooden massage table.
In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, chair massage is is done over clothing, avoiding the discomfort and awkwardness that some feel about disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into a busy schedule. This type of session is done in a specialized, aluminum, portable massage chair here in my office.
Need a therapist to come to you? I can bring my portable table or chair to your location. For each 20 miles or portion thereof total travel from my office location, there is a $20 fee.
This is for established clients with whom I have previously worked.
