We all move, that is the design for our bodies; however, time and gravity are constantly working on us. Being able to move pain free is a great joy that no one should give up on.

My goal is to provide safe, effective, intelligent, hands on treatment. Whether you have suffered trauma, disuse, or overuse there are things you can do to take care of yourself.

To be healthy you know you need excellent nutrition, proper exercise, adequate rest and a supportive community and family. Come and see how “nutritional”, “restful”, “invigorating”, and “supportive” Massage Therapy can be. It is a truly amazing form of self care.

“There is no greater healing power than self-care.”

What to Expect at Your Visit

Please come early to fill out a Health History Form. We will review the history form together to clarify your issues and begin to understand events in your history that may still have a bearing on your condition.

I will conduct some muscle or orthopedic tests as a part of your assessment. If we determine that massage therapy is indicated for you we will establish an appropriate treatment plan.

I will leave the room while you prepare for your massage treatment. You will be advised on what clothing you may need to remove. You will be fully covered with a sheet and/or blanket during the entire session with only the area being worked on uncovered.

My most important concern is that you are comfortable and your privacy respected.

During the treatment, you may want to talk or remain quiet – the choice is yours. It is important, however, to let me know anytime you feel uncomfortable, if for example I am using too much pressure or not enough. Communication is the key to receiving the most benefit from your massage treatment.

At the end of the session, I will leave the room so you may get dressed. It is important to take a few moments and get up slowly to allow your body to return to a more active state.

I will offer home care suggestions to help you manage at home and advice on follow up visits. You will also be given a receipt for your payment at the end of your appointment which you may use for extended health benefits or your taxes wherever appropriate.

Following your visit it is important to drink water and keep hydrated. It is not uncommon to feel a bit tender or stiff the next day but this should lessen within the first 36 hours after treatment.

If you have any concerns, however, please call me. I am available to answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment or home care.

Home visits are available. I will make visits to CVSV and Glacier View. If you know a resident in long term care offering a gift certificate is a wonderful gesture to someone who has passed the need to acquire things.
