Holistic massage therapy treatments begin with an intake interview in which the problem or help question from the client is spoken about in detail. The personal & medical history is also discussed at length, with particular attention for any contra indications (physical indicators when a massage should not be given).
The gathered information and impressions from the intake interview are then used to determine an appropriate treatment. This is discussed together with the client.
Massage offers the client the opportunity to become more aware of what the body is trying to say. My role as therapist is to act as a guide by listening intently and acting as a mirror to help the client reach a deeper level of self awareness.

Most massage techniques that I use require the use of massage oil. I use only almond oil which is a neutral oil without any scent or perfume.
