Massage by appointment only...Be prepared for a complete health screen including information on your medical condition, current medications, stress and personal goals for your massage session. You will meet the therapist at the massage room. He/She will leave the room and allow you to undress to your comfort level. You will then get between the fitted and flat sheets on the massage table. The only part of your body exposed is what is being massaged. A full session takes approximately one hour unless a longer appointment has been scheduled. After the session, the therapist will once again leave the room to ensure privacy. Be sure to drink plenty of water after the session to help flush the body of toxins. You will also have a variety of fragrant oils, natural creams and hypoallergenic lotions to choose from.
