Where will my session take place?
Your session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music may be played to help you relax. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort.

Must I be completely undressed?
No. In fact, all forms of treatment offered are performed with the client fully clothed.  Only shoes are typically removed.  Clean socks and loose or flexible, comfortable clothing is highly recommended.

Will I be covered during the session?
Yes.  You will remain fully clothed throughout the session.  Exposed skin may be draped with a sheet or light blanket to keep you warm and comfortable. 

What parts of my body will be worked on?
A typical session may include work on your abdomen, back, arms, chest, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders. Special attention will be paid to avoid contact with breast tissue, genital areas, and any other areas specified by the client to be avoided.

What will the bodywork feel like?
A relaxing massage is often a baseline reference for clients. Your session may start with techniques that will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension. You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort so that another approach may be taken. Massage and bodywork are most effective when your body is not resisting.

Are there different kinds of massage and bodywork?
There are numerous types of bodywork and energywork; various techniques utilize different approches, including slow stretching, rocking movement, posture and movement re-education, application of pressure to specific points, and more. We can discuss which methods may be most appropriate for you.

What should I do during the session?
Prior to the session, feel free to ask the practitioner any questions about the technique or the upcoming treatment. During the treatment, make yourself comfortable. The practitioner will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they need more or less pressure, another blanket, or anything else relevant to the session. If you have any questions regarding the session or about the particular technique you are receiving, feel free to ask.

How will I feel after the session?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days.

What are the benefits of bodywork and energywork?
Bodywork and energywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Bodywork and energywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.

Are there any medical conditions that would make bodywork inadvisable?
Yes. That's why it's imperative that, before you begin your session, the practitioner asks general health questions. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor's care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.
