What happens During a Massage ?
You will be given ample time to relax and ask any questions prior to your massage. This is your time to explain to me what areas you would like me to concentrate on, or to express any of your physical concerns. I will then leave the room and you can undress.
It is best that you remove as much clothing as you are comfortable with. You are in control here and your level of privacy will be respected. You will be covered with a sheet or a towel, except for the specific area being massaged. I will respect all levels of modesty. The client agrees to leave genitals covered at all times. Though we understand many people are comfortable with nudity, it is against the law with respects to our profession. It also compromises the comfort level of our therapists. Our therapists reserve the right to end any session that compromises their comfort level or sense of safety and the client agrees to remit full payment for scheduled treatment.
You should allow yourself to relax - close your eyes and I will help you to focus, so that you can enter the alpha Mind State, where all self-healing takes place and where you find the release from stress.
For some of our clients, there is a need to talk, and to discuss matters, which are important to them, or just to chat to establish a rapport between us. Others prefer to relax in silence, and if this is your wish, then I will co-operate. There may need to be some communication on various needs, injuries etc., and I will ask questions, which are appropriate to your perceived needs.
I use high quality gels, lotions, creams or oils to make the massage pleasant. I can add a small amount of essential oils, which increase the oxygenation to the cells and have an aroma, which is conducive to relaxation and healing. Please request in advance to have scented oils with your massage.
My experienced hands often find an area on your body, which indicates an injury. You may be asked to tell the circumstances of the injury, and how it feels. I do have techniques for treating some injuries, but always remember that healing comes from within the body, and external assistance is only that – assistance.
Often, clients fall asleep
during a massage – and other times the body eases tension during a massage
and the mind will release emotion. If you suddenly feel sad, angry, or
joyful, just allow yourself to express these feelings by crying or
laughing. At the very least, please feel free to moan and sigh with
relaxation or hum with pleasure. Listen to your body and sense what it is
telling you. I really enjoy the experience if I get feedback, such as
moaning or sighing. This shows that I am helping you - that is why I am in
