Each session may be different depending on the symptoms you wish to address
What to Expect
First the health intake forms and waivers filled out either online or in person,
please give as much detail as possible.
You will need to remove your shoes & socks, it is very helpful if pant legs can be pulled to just below the knee. Once that has been done you can get comfortable on the massage bed and relax.
Both feet will be wiped with warm baby wipes.
The foot not being worked on will then be wrapped in a towel. Lotion will be applied, I have a few for you
to choose from, and the session will begin.
During the session you may feel some tenderness in certain areas, this is perfectly normal.
Please advise me of these tender areas or anything painful.
You may experience a chill, again this is perfectly normal, blankets are on hand if you require please let me know if you need one.
A typical session lasts 20-30 minutes
After the Session
Once I have worked both feet I will reapply a small amount of lotion and gently massage it into your feet
and legs. I will then leave you to relax and get up when you are ready.
If you have any questions, comments or feedback before,
during or after the session please don't hesitate to ask.
Looking forward to getting my hands on you!
