Where will my massage or bodywork session take place?
Your massage or bodywork session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music may be played to help you relax. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort. The office is located at 224 High House Rd, Suite 220 Cary 27513. View Map

What if I cannot sit down?
As a post-liposuction massage therapist, I am trained in standing massage. If you are able to lie on your stomach, a portion of the session can be completed that way. There are also ways of layering pillows if you’d like to try lying on your back.
Does lymphatic drainage involve syringes or fluid draining from open wounds?
The post-liposuction massages you receive are likely different than those you may have experienced immediately post-surgery. Naturally the wounds will scab over and they should not be re-opened. Once this occurs, all subsequent drainage happens internally through the urine. I do not use syringes or tubes; rather the fluid is encouraged to move along with the gentle hand movements.
Do you use any equipment (pumps, ultrasound, etc)?
My therapy is a manual one, using only the hands.
Must I be completely undressed?
Most massage techniques are traditionally performed directly on the skin, even so, please only disrobe to your level of comfort. You will remain draped (mostly covered with a sheet) for the entire session, with only the areas being addressed uncovered. At no time will you be completely exposed.
Will you be present when I disrobe?
The practitioner will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with a clean sheet or towel.
Will I be covered during the session?
You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.
What parts of my body will be massaged?
A typical full-body session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders.
Do you do deep-tissue or sports massage?
I practice a traditional Swedish-style massage stroke with light to medium pressure only, also referred to as Relaxation Massage. Your feedback is welcome as it helps me know if you are experiencing any discomfort and/or enjoying the level of pressure being applied. My intent is never to “dig deep” or hurt you.
What will the massage or bodywork feel like?
A relaxing Swedish massage is often a baseline for clients. In a general Swedish massage, your session may start with broad, flowing strokes that will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension. Often, a light oil or lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. The oil also helps hydrate your skin. You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort so that another approach may be taken. Massage and bodywork are most effective when your body is not resisting.
What should I do during the massage or bodywork session?
Prior to the massage, feel free to ask any questions about the technique or the upcoming session. During the massage, make yourself comfortable. I will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they need more or less pressure, another blanket, or anything else relevant to the session. If you have any questions regarding the session or about the particular technique you are receiving, feel free to ask.
How will I feel after the massage or bodywork session?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your massage.
What are the benefits of massage and bodywork?
Massage and bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.
Are there any medical conditions that would make massage or bodywork inadvisable?
Yes. That’s why it’s imperative that, before you begin your session, you fill out the patient forms located here. I may also also ask general health questions. It is very important that you inform me of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor’s care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.
