How much does it cost?
Depends what needs to be done. If it is just a relaxation massage for your back and shoulders then it is $40(approximately half an hour) For a full body relaxation massage, an hour long back massage or therapeutic work it is $60 (approximately 1 hour). I usually always follow therapeutic work with some gentle relaxation work.
The free consultation process is not included in this time.
What do I wear for a massage?
Most clients just strip down to their undergarments for the massage and use the towels provided for modesty. During the massage you are draped with towels so that only the area I'm working on is uncovered. If you don't feel comfortable with this then I will work with you to find a solution. With some therapeutic work it is possible to do it fully clothed.
How soon can I expect to see results?
It depends on the individual and what type of work is needed. Some people see results after the first visit and find they don't need to come back. Others it takes two or three visits to notice a big improvement. If you haven't noticed an improvement tho after a couple of visits then massage might not be the best treatment plan for you, and we can discuss other professionals who might be able to help

How often should I receive massage?
I personally recommend massage at least once a month. If the body is maintained it runs more efficiently, a bit like your car if it receives regular services. Everyone is different though and it depends on the individual and their circumstances. We can discuss this when you come for your first session
