When choosing a therapist, you want to be sure you’re choosing one that you can fully trust to answer all of your questions and concerns. I provide easy-to-understand guides on some of the most common questions and concerns I receive. Below, you’ll will find a list of some frequently asked questions from my clients. Connect with me today for more information.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR:
Please come wearing, or bring, soft, loose-fitting clothing. Full-length pants such as sweatpants, yoga pants, or even pajama pants are ideal. Jeans and similar pants do not work well for shiatsu because they restrict range of motion and have zippers, buttons and snaps that can be uncomfortable while lying on your stomach. For a shirt, t-shirts, short or long sleeve work well. If you tend to get cold easily, wear an extra layer, as the body temperature can drop while lying down. If you forget to bring the proper attire, no worries! Loaner shirts are available if you forget your clothes or don't have time get home prior to a session.

Moves the receiver through stretches with the same benefits as yoga poses
Applied for relaxation, musculoskeletal therapeutic aims, or to benefit internal conditions or emotional rebalancing in the same way as acupuncture.
