  • Where will my massage or bodywork session take place?
    Your massage or bodywork session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music will be played to help you relax. You will like on a comfortable massage table which may also include a table warmer OR infrared heated grounding mat The InfraMat may offer the following benefits: Jade and tourmaline stones release high levels of far infrared and negative ions May help to temporarily boost your circulatory system May help to reduce back pain or body stiffness
  • Please arrive on time, but not too early.
    Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment to allow for brief conversation or use of restroom. I aim to provide you the full time you booked for but if you arrive late I will need to deduct it from your massage. I often have sessions booked back to back.
  • What should I do during the session? How will I feel after the session?
    I absolutely love what I do! I am grateful for you choosing me for your massage experience. Your comfort and wellbeing is my top priority. This is a team effort. Your commitment to yourself in booking and showing up for your massage allows me to offer you the most benefit in achieving your goals for improved quality of life and optimal health and wellbeing! Most individuals just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they need more or less pressure, more or less heat, etc. After the massage most 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, and for some weeks. PLEASE be sure to hydrate with proper electrolytes after your massage so you may feel your best. On occasion you may experience light amount of muscle soreness which should only last a day. As if you had worked out at the gym for the first time in a long time. Proper hydration, electrolytes and diet can minimize this effect.
    The best tip a client can offer a massage therapist is the word of mouth referral to friends and family! Your written and verbal honest feedback, rebooking and referrals are a lifeline for a small business owner!
  • Must I be completely undressed?
    Most massages are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, it is entirely up to you if you want to keep on undergarments. Please keep in mind if one is to wear a sports bra or upper body undergarment it may not allow for the therapist to provide the best experience with massaging back, shoulders, pectoral areas. It is suggested men to keep their undergarment on but to pull the leg up to the hip so the therapist may massage the length of the muscles for best result and the waste band to be off their hip for the therapist to be able to massage the lower back if this is applicable. If stretching is part of your bodywork session then undergarments for men and women is necessary to maintain comfort and coverage, although proper draping for stretching will also be maintained. You should undress to your level of comfort. Again, proper draping will ALWAYS be maintained!
  • Communication is Important.
    So you enjoy your experience and get the most out of your massage, please let me know if the pressure is too much, if you want more pressure, if the table warmer is to hot or not enough.
  • What parts of my body will be massaged?
    A typical full body massage or bodywork session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, face, head/scalp, neck and shoulders. No other parts will be massaged. If you wish to eliminate any of these areas, please let your therapist know.
  • What is a contraindications for massage or bodywork? What are some examples?
    Massage is one of the only therapeutic treatments that impact all 12 body systems which is why it is very important you are honest with your therapist regarding your health and medications. A contraindication is a condition that does not allow for massage/bodywork or it may require your massage to be modified due to a local contraindication where the therapist must avoid specific areas impacted by the condition. Local contraindications: *Cuts or open wounds *Bruises *Varicose veins *Broken bones *Burns *Some skin conditions *Acute inflammation - If you have acute inflammation any kind of massage to the area will further aggravate the situation and the area surrounding the location should be avoided. MORE SERIOUS contraindications: *Fever - indicative of a cold, flu or infection. Massage would have to be rescheduled *Contagious Disease *Blood clots - massage could loosen a blood clot. This could be dangerous. If you have had any long term impacts from procedures or recent illnesses which could contribute to blood clots the client is required to received release from their doctor on a script and to be provided to your therapist prior to receiving services. *Uncontrolled Hypertension - Massage increases blood flow. If you have blood pressure that is not under control, the increased blood flow that is a result of massage therapy which could impact your health issue.
  • Please remember to turn off your phone.
    If you must receive emergency calls I understand. I remind you so that YOU can enjoy an uninterrupted massage and escape from the day to day.
  • New clients must complete a client intake form in advance of your massage session.
    All new clients are required to complete the client intake form in its entirety 3 days prior to their massage and return it back to Live Whole Massage & Holistics LLC. Should the massage be booked 24 hours in advance of the appointment the intake form must be returned by end of day prior to the massage appointment. This allows the therapist to review all health history to verify any potential contraindications or to modify the massage based on any medical or physical needs due injury or ailments. Thank you for understanding and your cooperation in advance.
  • #RespectMassage - Respect Massage!
    I am an ethical and professional massage therapist. I do not tolerate in appropriate conversation, behavior, requests or advances and WILL NOT tolerate it. I will end the massage and have you dress immediately - without a refund for the massage services. There may be potential of authorities being called and any future massage booking privileges being revoked.
  • Please undress once the therapist has left the room.
    You may be comfortable with nudity. I ask that you do not start undressing while I am still in the room. Wait until I have left the room to undress to your level of comfort and lay on the massage table completely under the top sheet and covers. If you choose to leave a bra on, I will work around the bra best as possible but I am unable to guarantee the best experience. I am trained on how to properly drape clients to protect your modesty as well as my own.
  • Your leg hair is no problem.
    I do not mind if you have unshaved legs or armpits as long as you have showered or are reasonably clean, we're all good!
  • Sheets are changed between client sessions.
    All bedding is replaced between clients. An EPA approved and required disinfectant is used to clean all surfaces between each client. An air purifier is also in use in the room.

Please remember to hydrate before and after your massage!
