30-60 min sessions
Acupressure points are places on the skin that conduct bioelectrical impulses in the body. When stimulated with pressure in acupressure massage, endorphins are released. As a result, pain is relieved in affected areas. Increased circulation of chi (life force energy) and blood causes muscles to relax and promotes healing.
Tension tends to accumulate around acupressure points. When blood, oxygen and bioelectric energy circulate properly, we have a greater sense of harmony, health and well-being. Acupressure techniques are intended to correct imbalances, working toward regulation and harmony of all systems of the body.
Chinese meridian pulses are read to help determine how to proceed with your session. Each session is tailored to the needs of each person. If you have a medical condition,please be sure to see your doctor.
Usually done fully clothed. Includes wonderful, slow, shiatsu style massage to areas needed or some reflexology, and acupressure points with chi & pressure to your liking.
I have quite a few followers of this type of massage! They say the face and ears are incredibly relaxing! Relieves pain, fear, and worry, and induces deep relaxation & helps normalize the body & mind. Helps you feel balanced. Not your typical massage. Each session unfolds as I listen to the body/mind/spirit. A session will include gentle and relaxing, but powerful light-touch holds. It usually takes a few minutes for the heat to release and the tissue to soften. It may include rocking, vibration, shaking of the arms, and sweeping movements over the body to help release stuck energy. Sound may be used to help release stuck energy and to help you relax. It will include some gentle massage and reflexology. Reflexology may include ears, hands and/or feet. Facial massage is usually included that is incredibly relaxing. You may choose to remain clothed, but in a session, unclothed, you will receive the care of appropriately draped sheets and oil or lotion. Both clothed and unclothed sessions have essential oils/aromatherapy as an option.
45-60 minutes face, neck and shoulders. May add more time for foot reflexology or back massage.
6 Sessions 7-10 days apart.
1-2 times a month.
I accept Credit card, checks or cash.
I understand that unanticipated events happen occasionally in everyone’s life. In my desire to be effective and fair to all clients, the following policies are honored:
24 hour advance notice is required when cancelling an appointment. This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule an appointment. If you are unable to give me 24 hours advance notice you will be charged the full amount of your appointment. This amount must be paid prior to your next scheduled appointment.
Anyone who either forgets or consciously chooses to forgo their appointment for whatever reason will be considered a “no-show.” They will be charged for their “missed” appointment.
I understand emergencies and do not charge for true emergencies. I look forward to serving you!
If you arrive late, your session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. Depending upon how late you arrive, your therapist will then determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the “full” session. Out of respect and consideration to your therapist and other customers, please plan accordingly and be on time.
If you are sick with a cold or flu virus, please call as soon as you can to reschedule. It isn't good to have bodywork when you are fighting something off, or are in the midst of it.
I reserve the right to reschedule you if you arrive with symptoms. But I prefer if you let me know a day or so ahead if possible, so that I can fill the slot. When I don't work, I don't get paid. I totally understand when a virus hits unexpectedly, but please be considerate so that others may fill your slot, if you need to cancel. Thank-you!
