Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions are recommended?

We will discuss at the end of your initial appointment my recommendations for treatment. The frequency I recommend is highly varied depending on the condition being addressed.

What can I expect from a session?

See video below.

You will lay fully clothed on a massage table during the session. I begin by gently touching various parts of your head and body to assess and monitor the rhythm of the fluid that flows around your central nervous system and assess the overall muscle tension and spinal alignment of your body.

 I then use my hands to locate areas of weak fluid flow and tissue tightness tracing these areas through the body to the original source of dysfunction. Through delicate manual techniques the areas are released of tension creating improved alignment and function of the central nervous system decreasing pain.

 What you experience from your own session is highly individual. Many clients experience deep relaxation, feelings of warmth or gentle pulsing in the areas that I am treating.

You may notice changes in your body after the session as the body continues to integrate the work.

What is a Bio-Mat?

See video below!

From the Bio Mat website:

The BioMat is very different from a standard heating pad. It does not contain heating coils, or any point sources of heat, so it does not present the practical dangers associated with heating pads. It also has EMF protection built-in. And yet, the BioMat can transfer far more heat into the body, compared to a heating pad. This is because the heat transfer is radiant, not conductive. And since the heat is distributed evenly throughout the body, rather than just on the skin, there is great therapeutic value.  The radiant heat is produced by hot crystals that cover the surface of the mat, and there are settings to control the desired temperature of the crystals. The crystals are warmed by a flexible conductive heating plate, which was developed originally by NASA in order to safely warm space stations and other space vehicles.

Users benefit from reduced joint and muscle pain, commonly lower back pain/ stiffness or arthritis. Also it improves microcirculation on the cellular level so it quickens the healing or recovery process. It boosts the immune system, provides stress reduction, and promotes deep rejuvenating relaxation.”

 

Who do you work with? What conditions do you treat?

I specialize in working with adolescents and adults who have physical and emotional pain issues such as: 

  • headaches
  • neck and shoulder pain
  • joint pain
  • TMJ
  • digestive issues
  • poor sleep
  • fibromyalgia 
  • chronic fatigue
  • anxiety
  • high stress levels
  • depression

 Physical pain has emotional components and origins that traditional medical practices overlook. We will investigate how and why your emotions contribute to the physical pain and I will teach you techniques to help your body let go of it.

 My wish for all my clients is to find peace.

Peace within your body, your mind and your past to be able to live more fully in the present, allowing you to accomplish your life fulfilling tasks.

Do you accept insurance?

I am happy to announce that I am now accepting Anthem BC/BS and Aetna for my services. I anticipate that eventually I will be adding other health insurance providers, but at this time, I accept HSA (Health Savings Accounts) and private pay clients outside of BC/BS or Aetna.

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept cash, Venmo, Paypal and Health Savings Account payments at this time.  It is possible that I will expand to more payment options in the future.
