Plan to arrive about 15 minutes early for your first appointment. This will give us time to review your Intake and Medical History Form, talk about your reasons for coming, and discuss your goals. Based on this information, I'll create a treatment plan especially for you!
If this is your first oncology massage session, please fill out the additional Oncology History Form so that I can understand what adjustments might need to be made for your safety and comfort. If you have any questions or concerns, please ask.
During the session you can feel at ease that you will be fully draped (under a sheet and blanket) at all times...only the area being worked will be exposed. I will also check in with you from time to time for feedback on what feels effective and on pressure tolerance (we will use a scale of 1-10). Massage should never feel painful. Ever. Since you know your body best, it is critical that you feel encouraged to communicate what you are experiencing so my work can be as effective as possible for you.
