Frequently Asked Questions

Why Mobile massage? 

Why travel to a massage therapist when you can relax as I travel to your home, office or event? I offer massages over a wide range of hours to meet your hectic schedules to help you relax and revitalize your soul. Everything I need to relax you is provided - massage table,aromatherapy, fresh, clean linens and most importantly relief from any pain and stress that you may be experiencing! 

Is there a cancelation Policy? And why?

Yes, If you are to cancel/reschedule your appointment with less that 24 hr notice, you will be charged 50% of your service. This is because last minute changes are the hardest to fill and that prevents others from being able to take advantage of that time.

 

Are there different kinds of massage and bodywork?

There are numerous types of massage and bodywork 
using various techniques utilizing different strokes, 
including rocking movement, posture and movement 
re-education, application of pressure to specific 
points, and more.

 

​Where will my massage or body/energy work session 
take place?

Your massage or bodywork session will take place in a 
warm, comfortable, quiet room or other location 
previously agreed upon. Soft music may be 
played to help you relax. You will lie on a table 
especially designed for your comfort.



 Must I be completely undressed?

Most massage techniques are traditionally 
performed with the client unclothed; however, 
it is entirely up to you what you want to wear. You 
should undress to your level of comfort. You will 
be properly draped during the entire session. 
And most body/energy work techniques can 
be performed with the client fully dressed.



 Will the practitioner be present when I disrobe?

 The practitioner will leave the room while you 
undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself 
with the clean sheets.

 

Will I be covered during the session?

 You will be properly draped at all times to keep 
you warm and comfortable. Only the area being 
worked on will be exposed.

 

What parts of my body will be massaged? 

A typical full-body session will include work on 
your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, 
face, and shoulders.


 What will the massage or bodywork feel like?

A relaxing Swedish massage is often a baseline for 
clients. In a general Swedish massage, your session 
may start with broad, flowing strokes that will help 
calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle 
tension. As  your body becomes relaxed, pressure 
will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and 
relieve areas of muscular tension. Often, a light oil or 
lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged 
without causing excessive friction to the skin. The oil 
also helps hydrate your skin. You should communicate 
immediately if you feel any discomfort so that 
another approach may be taken. Massage and bodywork 
are most effective when your body is not resisting. 

 

 How will I feel after the massage or bodywork session?

Most people 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. It is recommended you drink plenty of 
water following your massage.

 

What are the benefits of massage and bodywork?

Massage and bodywork can help release chronic 
muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, 
increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical 
fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured 
muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce 
blood pressure. Massage and bodywork is also known to 
promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce 
anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.




 Are there any medical conditions that would make 
massage  or bodywork inadvisable?

Yes. That's why it's imperative that, before you begin 
your session, the practitioner asks general health 
questions. It is very important that you inform the 
practitioner of any health problems or medications you 
are taking. If you are under a doctor's care, it is strongly 
advised that you receive a written recommendation for 
massage or bodywork prior to any session. Depending 
on the condition, approval from your doctor may 
be required.

 

What is Reiki?  

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and 
relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered 
by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an 
unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what 
causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, 
then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if 
it is high, we are more capable of being happy and 
healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - 
Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" 
and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually 
"spiritually guided life force energy." 
Reiki is a hands on modality for healing, 
but it is not a massage.

 

 

Does Reiki Have Any Impact When Used During 
a Massage?
In my experience I find that Reiki enhances and enriches 
the experience of massage as well as maximizes the 
outcome of the treatment. It makes it a more complete 
and fulfilling experience for both client and practitioner. 
Reiki is a wonderful and simple healing tool that can be 
blended with most if not all modalities and boost the 
experience of whatever you apply it to.
 
 
 
Do I have to have Reiki to enjoy a massage?
 
No, Reiki is just one of the services I offer as well as massage.
 
What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique                                                                                                     that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial                                                                                                    connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.                                                                                                         This essential “time element” has to do with how a low load                                                                                                                   (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a fascia  to elongate.

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create                                                                                               Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of                                                                                                       approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive                                                                                                           structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests                                                                                                                   (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
