WHAT IS TREATMENT LIKE AT PEACEFUL STRENGTH MASSAGE?
Your first session begins with a review of the intake form you completed before arriving, an assessment and a conversation that enables me to understand what you want from the visit.
After our brief conversation, we move into your treatment time, where you will get to experience what makes clinical massage at Peaceful Strength unique.
Be it table massage or on the mat (Thai-Mat Bodywork), I ask you to bring shorts or workout pants and a t-shirt since I may ask you to participate in certain movements and a variety of stretches. If I use any oil, it is Joba-Joba oil and does not leave you feeling greasy. I focus on assessing each area of pain or discomfort you have and then treat it with the most beneficial technique(s).
I encourage you to ask questions and become an active participant in your treatment; to learn to become ‘awake’ and in tune with your body so future treatments can enhance moving freely and without pain.
I generally see 2 types of clients: those dealing with pain and those who believe that regular massage is an integral part of their wellness plan.
If you come in for pain relief, I want to focus on your area(s) of concern; this means that most (if not all) of the treatment time is only on one or two areas of your body. The first goal is to reduce your pain and increase your mobility. A wellness-focused appointment is a total body massage using a variety of techniques to smooth out the kinks and teach you how to listen to what your body needs.
After your session, whether for pain relief or wellness focus, we will spend a couple minutes discussing a treatment plan to align with your goals.
It is time to awaken your body to a better life.
Note: For your appointment, we request that you bring appropriate clothing. Women are asked to bring a sports bar, sports top, or loose fitting tank or t-shirt and exercise shorts. Men; a loose fitting pair of workout shorts.
Please book a New Client session it will be 75 or 105 minutes (60 or 90 minutes hands on). This gives plenty of time to assess and address your pain and stress issues. Please bring loose fitting clothes or exercise wear (shorts, warm-up pants, yoga pants, t-shirts or sports tops).
45-minute sessions are for follow up visits for focused work only.
