A full body, Swedish massage consists of medium to soft pressure applied in a rhythmical way which is designed to relax the entire body, relieve muscle tension, and soothe away stress. It is my hope that it provides an escape from the day-to-day pressures of life. You are in control of your session and are welcome (at any time) to request changes which will enhance your comfort (massage pressure, room temperature, pillows, blankets, etc). You will find answers to most questions about your massage session at this FAQ page.

Massage therapy does not constitute medical treatment and is not a substitute for a medical examination or diagnosis. If you are dealing with a serious health condition check with your health care provider before seeking massage therapy and make sure you inform your massage therapist of any health conditions that may affect the work.
- I replace ALL table coverings above the waterproof barrier for every client. Many massage therapists and spas only change the sheets but continue to use the same table warmer, fleece, blankets, etc. While your body may not actually come in contact with these items, fabric is not an adequate barrier for bacteria. By using the waterproof barrier and replacing everything above it, I am taking every possible precaution for your health and well-being. This is especially important for those with weak or compromised immune systems.
