What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I want to get to know what the results the client wants from their massage. This can range from relaxation to bodywork on a specific area. Open communication is necessary to make sure the client receives the results they want.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have 500 hours of massage training from a local massage school and am continuously researching new techniques and ideas to improve my skills.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

How did you get started doing this type of work?
My first massage was about 10 years ago and the healing and relaxation that it brought to my body made me fall in love with it and the benefits it provides. I reached a stage in my life where I wanted to learn more and share these benefits and so I did.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with all types of customers and each one is an individual in their needs. I have worked with you and old, healthy and chronic illness, all bodies are unique and have different requirements.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure you communicate your needs to your massage therapist - both before the session and during. Find someone who will listen to what you want and then provide it. Don't be afraid to shop around - each massage therapist is unique in their style and approach but when you find one that works for you - stick with them!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What do you want from the massage? Do you want to relax or do you have a specific concern you need addressed? What did you like about previous massages and what didn't you like?
