Welcome to Peace at Hand Massage Therapy
A note from the therapist..........
Injury, tension, life events and the simple busy-ness of living in a metropolitan area can all shift us away from our natural, peaceful state. Sometimes we need a helping hand to bring us back to it. Through a unique blend of massage, craniosacral therapy and energy work, I can become a guide on your journey towards pain management, relaxation, body awareness or pregnancy/postpartum relief. During your individualized bodywork session, you will be given tools to find your way back in to balance. Massage is never something that I do to fix you, but rather a subtle, often subconscious, conversation between the two of us.
There is nothing particularly special that you need to do, but here are a few things to keep in mind:
You will probably be most comfortable if you avoid eating immediately before you get on the table. Its not a bad idea to give yourself an hour to digest.
Likewise, try to avoid caffeine and other stimulants within several hours of your massage.
Consider how you dress for your appointment. Depending on the sort of work we do, it is possible that a small amount of lubricant or essential oil may remain on your skin. I haven't yet had a client complain, but be aware that those products can stain delicate fabric, and that essential oils are sometimes slow to fade. As a rule, I try to avoid wearing anything that can't be thrown in the wash. You may also find that after your massage, you feel hesitant to put on restructive clothing or uncomfortable shoes, so keep that in mind as well.
