What must I do before my first appointment? By e-mail please tell me a bit about you and what you are seeking from our session. If I can’t tell who you are I am unlikely to respond. Verifying you protects me and us from people who don’t want choice in touch. I will also not respond to short soulless inquiries such as “R U Available.” In summation heartfelt and respectful people have more fun an live a connected joyful life. Email is my preferred method of first contact. email@example.com
Who do you prefer working with? After two decades of offering massage and bodywork, my preference is to work with clients who are open to receiving a good massage, are friendly, punctual, have a modicum of cleanliness and are discreet. Other than that, I have no preference to the shape, sex, age or sexuality of my clients. All are welcome.
What are your rates? No two simply good bodywork sessions are alike other than the rate: 90 minutes is the optimum amount of time to share my offering with you. The rate for a 90 minute in-home hotel session is $220.
Are you trained? Yes. I graduated from Tucson’s Desert Institute of the Healing Arts with a Thousand hour Diploma in August of 1998. I expanded my massage horizons during a one year residency at Big Sur’s Esalen Institute. The learning never stops as I have taken workshops in India, from Body Electric School of Massage , thai massage studies at the Sunshine School in Chiang Mai Thailand, and the Upledger institute. In addition I have done lots of self work such as and annual Kundalini yoga cleaning at 3HO’s summer solstice yoga intensive and all 8 levels ofHAI
What style of massage do you practice? Integrated and sensually holistic. After 20 years of a full-time bodywork I like to think that each massage therapy session is unique and a dance. Some of the moves include: sensual Swedish, unique deep tissue, trigger points, full body stretches and blissful flowing Esalen long strokes. I believe a good massage is a shared journey, not just a series of techniques so variance is likely. Clients who have employed me for years often tell me that no two deep Esalen massage sessions are alike. my touch . . .
How many massages do you do a day? I believe that massage should be a personal, unique and energy-filled experience. Because I believe in quality bodywork and put so much energy into your session, I limit my massage appointments to no more than one per day or two if its a couple.
Can I be in the nude? Of course. I believe that massage should be about comfort and connection. Wear what makes you feel comfortable and connected during your massage session. After our pre-session interview I leave the bodywork room to wash my hands. There are always two fresh sheets on the table so you have a choice of the level of draping or un-drape which suits your comfort level before I return to the room to begin your bodywork session.
Do you give a sensual massage? Yes. My massage offering includes touch of your entire body. I believe that massage by nature is sensual and that the body and soul respond well to being treated and touched as a complete creation. In my experience, profound and positive changes unfold when the sensual tastefully meets the therapeutic.
Do you offer “mutual massage?” No. Light non-erotic touch is OK if you feel the need to ground but please remember you called me for a massage and I work best when I can focus at the task at hand.
Do you use a table? Always. Body mechanics and the longevity of my massage career (already embarked on the 3rd decade) depend on having a table which is adjusted to an appropriate height.
Do you use oil or lotion? I primarily use Biotone’s clear results oil. Secondarily, I use some Aveda products like ‘Love’ ‘hand relief’ and ‘foot relief’ to enhance the massage and create a pampering mini-spa atmosphere. I also use Keihls “body cream.” If you have special oil needs its a good idea to bring a bottle to your session.
I have a cold, is massage good for me? Maybe, however, I don’t need to get sick too. Please wait until you feel better to schedule your massage.
What can I do to get a fulfilling massage experience? Breathe fully and deeply. Sound, and/or tell me when something feels really good. Relax, let go, and enjoy.
Do you take credit cards? No, but I happily accept PayPal. You can pay before your session by sending money to firstname.lastname@example.org via PayPal, or after if you have the PayPal app on your phone.
Where are you located? I do outcalls. So wherever you are. My travel schedule is here
