If you are a new client please choose New Client session from the booking menu. New client sessions are 75 or 105 minutes (60 or 90 minutes hands-on). This gives plenty of time to assess and address your pain and stress issues. Please bring loose-fitting clothes or exercise wear (shorts, warm-up pants, yoga pants, t-shirts or sports tops).
Your first session begins with a review of the intake form you completed before arriving, an assessment and a conversation that enables us to understand what you want from the visit.
After our brief conversation, we move into your treatment time, where you will get to experience what makes clinical Massage-Bodywork at Peaceful Strength unique.
Be it on the Thai mat or massage table, you will be clothed. We ask you to bring/wear loose fitting clothing such as exercise clothes (workout pants and a t-shirt) since we include many stretches and a variety of movements. We focus on assessing each area of pain or discomfort you have and then treat it with the most beneficial technique(s).
We encourage you to ask questions and become an active participant in your treatment; to learn to become ‘awake’ and in tune with your body so future treatments can enhance moving freely and without pain.
We generally see 2 types of clients: those dealing with pain and those who believe that regular massage-bodywork is an integral part of their wellness plan.
If you come in for pain relief, we want to focus on your area(s) of concern; this means that most (if not all) of the treatment time is only on one or two areas of your body. The first goal is to reduce your pain and increase your mobility. A wellness-focused appointment is a total body massage using a variety of techniques to smooth out the kinks and teach you how to listen to what your body needs.
After your session, whether for pain relief or wellness focus, we will spend a couple minutes discussing a treatment plan to align with your goals.
Note: For your appointment, we request that you bring appropriate clothing. Loose fitting exercise style t-shirt and workout pants. All Massage- Bodywork sessions are done clothed.
