As the recipient, you will have some awareness of what you would like to receive during your session: stilling your hectic life for a short time, learning regular and deep breathing, receiving a full-body massage for energy and improved circulation, attention to specific areas of the body, etc.
I will inquire as to your general and specific health: possible injuries, tender or sore spots and areas of focus. Conversation is encouraged at the beginning of the massage and when I need more information during the session. Otherwise, you are encouraged to relax, breathe deeply and allow me that quiet to listen to your body. Of course, if there is discomfort, don't endure it.
The massage studio will be quite warm. You will be asked to undress to your level of comfort since the technique of draping will not be used for modesty. Towels and sheets are always available when extra warmth is needed and I am respectfully dressed.
