What to expect

After discussions on your initial visit your medical history and lifestyle is noted and the treatment designed around your specific needs and goals. In some cases it may be necessary to obtain your doctor’s permission prior to starting treatment.(All client records are stored securely). You then lie down face up on the massage couch, soothing music plays and fragrant candles are used for relaxation. A little massage oil or cream is applied then strokes are performed in a sequence determined by your particular needs. The type of massage strokes and amount of pressure applied is specific to each client’s needs, and varied accordingly.
