Healthy Well-Being

Let's change the way you feel!  At your first session you will be asked to fill out a confidential health history form. It is important to be as detailed and honest as possible. It is also important to realize that instant relief from pain or discomfort is not always possible.  When receiving therapeutic bodywork, recognize that physical conditions often have been accumulating over quite some time. Depth builds session over session, and healing takes time. The problem area will not necessarily be worked on first. Often the area with the most pain may not be the origin of the problem. The approach is in balancing the systematic functions of the entire body progressively.

Effort, patience and persistence are required to recover from injury or illness and to reposition the body into good health especially with chronic conditions. Full Body Balancing is a valuable addition to proper nutrition, exercise, healthy relationships and mindful work in achieving and maintaining balance in our lives.

What to Expect 

image45

Be prepared for a truly unique, exceptional, and transformative  massage experience. During your session you will be asked to leave any stressful thoughts at the door.  Enter your massage with a clear mind and utilize your time on the table to generate positive and peaceful thought. It is helpful to have one simple image that you absolutely love to focus on and return to during your session, for Alie that image is a sunflower. Generating positive thought while you are on the massage table is a meditation that will allow your mind to release mental stress, and stop the production of stress chemicals that lock in muscle tension.  Clearing your mind of negativity will also flood your body with healing endorphins. 

You will be draped appropriately.  If there are certain areas you prefer left untouched such as: buttocks, inner thighs, abdomen, hair or feet, simply communicate this at any time before, or during your session. You will be encouraged to verbally communicate, to breathe and to let go.  After your session you will have private time to relax, dress and bring yourself into awareness. When you emerge you may choose to talk about the session and schedule another appointment.
