Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new client?
Typically I like to see a client the first time for a 90minute session to gather as much knowledge about not only their medical and personal background but their overall body needs and get a good in-depth look what brought them in for a treatment as well as how we would like to set-up a treatment plan for future visits and discuss client goals.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I earned my massage certifications at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine here in San Diego as well as I trained in Thailand with an amazing blind therapist who taught me more in-depth Thai massage techniques & traditions.
