Massage therapy individualized. Full assessment on first appointment. I like to understand what my client wants and deliver that to the best of my abilities. I dont push my clients into something they dont want. I listen. I massage starting with gentle touch , rocking and sometimes smoothing to feel constricted tissues of the upper layers initially,this can provide me a baseline for areas to work on. Sometimes pain in one area can be generated in another area of the body. I use swedish massage to warm the tissue up and then I can go in a bit deeper without doing harm. I use my hands thumbs, fingers, forearms, elbows, knees and sometimes my body to deliver stretches to area to trigger release of tissue. Sometimes there can be a bit of pain but I talk to the client and always ask them for feedback. My massages are not simple massage but I feel a work of art. I dont like my hands to leave the body till im finished. My clients rebook usually because they believe I care and do a great job and that means everything to me.
Its individually tailored and one on one. I like assisting my clients in a way that is therapeutic so that their body can have a better opportunity to heal itself. Im grateful to be able to help others. Ive always been in the health field since hight school , military and my adult life. To be able to assist others though massage and give care is important to me. Its more than just a job.

I like to do evaluation of my clients, talk about their medical history a bit and see what type of massage they like or dont like. Its in my best interest to understand what the client is looking for and deliver that. I also give positive suggestions after the massage and even give them exercise and other helpful advise. We develop a treatment plan so that they know how to help themselves get better and whats expected from future massage work.
I am licensed at a massage therapist in Maryland. Ive spent the last 11 years bulding my practice here in Howard County Maryland at our massage clinic. I still work there part time. I am trained in all types of massage plus various addon specialties such as cbd massage, pregnancy massage, reflexology, reiki, (energy work),and myoskeletal alignment therapy. Im trained in acupuncture for stress, aromatherapy as well and warm stone massage as well.
Price is dependent upon service rendered. Basic Swedish for 1 hour is 70 typically. I add on aromatherapy and CBD oil + $10 additional.
Ahhhh great question! I've traveled the world and every place I've ever resided. I've always had a massage therapist. I can't live without mine so I guess you could say I've always had an affinity towards it.
All types. Variety is one of the reasons I've stayed in this business so long. I'm always learning. Clients usually come to me when there was nothing more others could do for them. My specialty is myoskeketal alignment therapy aka MAT. It's a way of balancing out the body through movement and conditioning of the muscles through massage and stretching / movement.
Yes. A therapist and I did a chair massage job for a huge corporate office. We worked our tails off! Lol. I don't mind chair massage but I like working with client one on one , table top, in an environment that allows them to fully relax and me to focus.
State your reason for seeing them. In other words what actually needs to be addressed as well as what you like and don't like should be addressed so you get what you cane for and are not disappointed. Therapy don't mind you telling them during massage if you need more or less pressure etc. Also, deep tissue massage doesn't always feel painful but is used on more chronic musculoskeletal conditions so if you know you've been having problems you should book deep tissue if you know you need slow deep focused work. Swedish is a much gentler flowing massage meant for total relaxation.
You medical history should be taken into consideration and if you are in treatment for any reason check with your doctor first. Thank you.
