Susan's Approach to the Therapies She Offers
The treatment room is an airy, light-filled space that offers a sense of quiet serenity.
After you share your health concerns and treatment needs, I will let you know which of my services might best suit your needs and comfort levels.
During treatment, you will always be appropriately draped and will be encouraged to offer feedback about the massage . . . if you want me to lighten up or use more pressure, just let me know; I will not work outside of your comfort zone.
You can choose some relaxation music or simply enjoy the tranquil sound of a water fountain that burbles in the background.
If you are interested, I can show you muscle charts and anatomy texts that illustrate which of your muscles are giving you grief, and I may show you some helpful exercises that you can do on your own.
Due to the personal nature of massage therapy, many people find it reassuring to connect over the phone before their first appointment. I am happy to discuss your needs and concerns with you. Please e-mail or telephone me to set up a time that is convenient for you: E-mail,or by Telephone: 519-571-7511.
