Is it safe?
Massage involves manipulating parts of the body, so there is always the possibility that your condition may get worse. If you have any kind of pain, it is encouraged that you see a medical doctor before trying massage therapy. Massage should also not be performed on any areas where there is bruising, intense swelling, or other damage to the tissue. If you are pregnant, have circulatory problems or heart problems, or have any unusual illnesses, please consult your physician before beginning massage treatment. Always let Jennifer know about your current state of health.
Will my massage ever hurt?
Massage on healthy tissue feels good. If you have trigger points or are requesting a Deep Tissue Massage, there may be some slight discomfort as Jennifer works through your “problem areas”. You are the best judge of your comfort level, and Jennifer will work closely with you at all times.
Do I need to undress?
Undress to your level of comfort. For a full body massage, most people undress completely, but you may wear underwear if that allows you to feel most comfortable. You are warmly draped at all times, except for the area being worked on.
What do I need to do during my massage?
Relax and make yourself comfortable. Jennifer may ask you to adjust your position or turn over. Please feel free to change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable.
