What to Expect
Please arrive about 10 minutes early to complete a health intake form and relax before your massage. Also, kids under 18 will need a guardian to sign a consent form.
During your massage, you will be covered at all times, expect for the area that is currently being worked. While I recommend undressing completely, you are welcome to wear your undergarments if you prefer.
Pain is entirely subjective. If the pressure is too much for you, then it's too much... “No pain, No gain” is a big misconception in this world. In fact, if your nervous system views my touch as a threat, it will react negatively by tightening your muscles and releasing cortisol which will decrease the effectiveness of your therapy.
So speak up if you're ever uncomfortable! Otherwise, just breathe, relax, and let your body melt into the table.

What's Up With Essential Oils?
Essential oils are distilled from the leaves, roots, flowers, bark, and/or seeds of plants from all over the world. They are considered the immune system of the plant and can provide excellent health benefits to us humans too, when used correctly.
Did you know it takes 4 dozen roses to produce just one drop of rose absolute? Because rose pedals are so delicate, they can not withstand to process of steam distillation, therefore, solvent extraction is used instead & we then call the product an absolute oil. Since rose absolute is so expensive to produce, it is probably the number one oil that is commonly diluted, & synthesized. This is why it's so important to know where your oils come from! It's pretty safe to say that all beauty products that come from our everyday chain stores are using synthetic rose oil which often causes headaches, nausea, & skin irritations. Please don't skimp when it comes buying rose infused products!
