FAQ for soulful SPA massage clients

When are you available?
I am normally available to begin sessions between the hours of 10:00 am and 10:00 pm. Holiday appointments may be available on a limited basis if booked ahead. Same day appointments are sometimes available, but advance booking is always appreciated. I respond to all appointment requests as quickly as possible, usually within two hours. If you have a special request, please contact me.

How do I schedule an appointment with you?
You may request an appointment by going to the Contact page of this website.

Can my partner and I schedule you for back to back sessions?
Absolutely.

Do you require draping?
For Swedish soulful massage, clients are invited to disrobe to whatever their comfort level is. Draping (a sheet or towel to cover you) is not required. Draping is always available for those clients who prefer it; however, most clients who choose my services are seeking a more integrative, full-body massage experience than what they have experienced while being draped. Clients who choose no draping receive a more fluid and connected experience because there is no need for the masseur to compartmentalize the body and start/stop each time the sheet is adjusted.

What should I do during the massage?
Relax, let go, breathe deeply, set aside your thoughts, be present, feel. Your “job” while you are on the massage table is to receive. You participate in your massage session by opening yourself to the experience.

What are your sessions like?
I have a medium touch and tend to focus on creating a feeling of wellbeing, pleasure, and wholeness. Clients often remark that I have an exceptionally calming presence and a very kind and thoughtful touch.

Do you work according to a set routine?
Not really. My instructors did not believe in teaching a routine, so I have been fortunate not to have to “unlearn” that kind of training. There will be elements of each session that will be common, however, each client has a unique body and unique needs. I rely on what you tell me as well as how I perceive your body as I am working to determine exactly how I will proceed with your massage.

Is it going to hurt?
Generally no, although some clients do enjoy a “good hurt” kind of pressure on certain muscle groups. If you are looking for aggressive deep tissue or clinical type bodywork, I can recommend massage therapists who specialize in that.

What about my privacy?
Information that you share with me is kept private and confidential. Your information will not be shared with any other person or organization. If you have special privacy needs or concerns please contact me to determine how I may accommodate you.
