What you can expect

I will do everything possible to ensure that your experience is positive and rewarding. You will be asked about your reasons for getting a massage, current medical condition, medical history, lifestyle, stress level, areas of pain and other pertinent topics. You will be asked to undress in private and drape yourself with the sheet (and blanket) provided. You may leave your undergarments off or on, at your discretion. You will lie down on a comfortably padded and heated massage table. I will only undrape the area of your body being massaged, ensuring that your modesty is respected at all times. I will discuss the techniques to be used and areas to be worked on before I use them so that you have the opportunity to understand and consent to them.

You should expect a peaceful and comfortable environment for your massage. Please report a distraction of any kind, whether from physical discomfort, room temperature, volume of music, or any other source. Always remember that this is your massage and your comfort is paramount.
