You are invited to dress down to your comfort level. For a complete body
massage, most people will completely undress. However, if you feel more
comfortable leaving your undergarments on, I will work around those areas,
and modify treatment. If being completely undressed leaves you feeling
anxious or unsafe, then I am unable to offer you optimal treatment. Either way,
the massage treatment you choose will remain professional and in line with the
standards of the Indiana State Board Requirements, Ethics and Guidelines.
2. Do I have to be covered with a sheet or towel?
Yes. I will provide draping for you. It is unlawful to receive a massage without
appropriate draping. My job is to offer you a safe place to heal and recover
while your muscles are worked on. The only area uncovered during a massage
will be the direct area I am working on at the time.
3. How often should I get a massage?
The frequency of treatment depends on areas you are working to modify
and/or maintain. Every 3 to 6 weeks is a normal time frame to get a massage.
However, if you are working out for a sporting event, or are currently involved
in an on-going sport, you would probably need treatment weekly.
4. If I want a deeper tissue massage, should I see a male therapist?
The answer is NO. The myth that a female therapist is unable to provide the
depth to muscle tissue, necessary to provide theraputic treatment is simply
not true. I can assure you, if you are looking for deep tissue, just ask. Style and
training determine the amount of pressure and depth a therapist can provide.
Deep tissue is one of my top two modalities.
5. Can I talk during my session?
Yes. Some people find the silence awkward until he/she gets to know the
therapist. Others want to have no conversation. This is your time.
Communication is required to get the optimum benefits from your massage. If
you choose to talk all the way through your massage, that is okay. I will follow
your lead, either way. You can expect me to check in and ask if pressure is
okay. You can expect me to check in occasionally to be sure you are
6. What if I don't like your choice of music for massage?
That is an excellent question. Some people do not love the sounds of whales
and dolphins, while others cannot stand flutes. For some, the sound of any
kind of moving water makes them feel the urgency to go to the restroom. I
have taken extra care to choose soft music to slow things down a bit and allow
your body to relax, without worrying about the words to a song, the sound of
flutes, animals, whales or running water.
7. When should I choose not to get a massage?
If you have the flu, flu-like symptoms, a contagious virus or illness. Also, if you
have a fever, for any reason that is not the time to schedule a massage.
8. What if I get an erection while getting a massage?
This is a valid question and one not many people are comfortable asking. Many
men are afraid to get a massage out of fear of getting an erection. Sometimes
men get an erection during a non-sexual, therapeutic, full body massage. Touch
administered to any part of the body can activate the parasympathetic nervous
system, which can result in a partial or complete erection. An educated,
professional massage therapist understands this and it will not be an issue for
him/her. If you are still concerned, I recommend wearing more fitted
underwear (briefs or boxer briefs) which provide more support than traditional boxers.
Note: If I feel that the session has turned sexual for the client, male or female, I
may stop the session to clarify the client's intent, and may decide to end the
