Can you work on minors?
Yes I can. I will have a parent sign a consent form and I am perfectly comfortable to do therapies with parents present in room.
How much do I undress, and will I be exposed?
You can undress as much or as little as you would like. I will work around any clothing decided to be left on. Undressing all the way will provide better results, being able to access the glutes and pecs will offer much benefit and often times essential to alleviating pain in other parts of the body.
Exposure varies on what needs to be done for medical purposes. I will always ask and double check consent to ensure client comfortability.
I felt sick after my session. Why?
In a traditional 1 hour massage, your lymphatic system (immune system) is boosted on average 15-20% in terms of lymphocyte count (longer sessions having a larger increase). This is a very large increase as well as the lymph moving faster than it normally does. The lymphatic system is responsible for fighting off infection and detoxing your body, so if there is something in your body that needs to be addressed, it will be attacked aggressively.
Can I receive a massage with (X) number of weeks pregnat?
