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.
Please define an area where we will be working, and see that it is as free of obstacles as possible. We will work with whatever is available, but if there is a decision to make between two spaces, the one with more open area is best.
Pushing furniture to the edges of a room is helpful, as is picking up any children's or pets toys. If you know that you will need help preparing the space, please let us know ahead of time so that we can schedule your session accordingly.
If we will not be working in a private space, it is a great idea to inform anyone who is likely to wander through that a massage will be happening. It may not ensure that the space will be quiet or your massage will be uninterrupted, but at least there will be no surprises!
Consider what you can do to minimize distractions. Are you able to silence your telephone or answering machine? Leave a note on the door asking the mailman not to knock? Will you and your pet be happiest if they are in a different room, or will they want to snooze under the table? Do the people who count on you know that you will prefer not to be bothered for a time, and can you give them an opportunity to ask their questions and have their needs met before we begin?
