Q: Can I talk during my session?

A: Cash, Check or Credit Card
Q: Do you accept insurance?

Q: Does Deep Tissue Massage hurt?
A: NO! there are many misconceptions about deep tissue massage. Deep tissue is more about the intention of techniques vs application of pressure. Many clients find with trust, communication and patience they enjoy receiving deeper pressure work. Massage should never hurt unless it "hurts so good". I use the term "therapeutic discomfort" to describe moments that require challenging focus and letting go that the body naturally senses as restorative and effective. Possible healing responses of the body post massage are due to movement of energy and toxicity previously stagnant that usually pass within a day.
