I am licensed by the state of Texas and have been providing professional massage services for about 7 years.
My modalites include: Swedish, deep tissue/therapeutic, sports, prenatal, reflexology, myofacial release, lymphatic drainage, as well as some limited energy work.
I enjoy helping my clients feel better from their aches and pains, and provide relief of stress and tension from everyday life.
I got a 1 1/2 hour deep tissue massage from Shannon. Have never had a better massage anywhere. She was very attentive to my specific needs and issues. And was always considerate of if the pressure was too much or too light. And I felt 100% better. Can’t recommend her enough.
Usually I will have a client call or text me if they are interested in setting up a time for body work. Normally it is not difficult to find a time that is suitable for the both of us.
I have 7 years of massage experience. I attended a school for massage therapy and was licensed by the state of Texas. I take continuing education every year to maintain the status of my license.
I like to keep my pricing very basic so there isn't room for confusion. I charge $1/1 min. And a $20 travel fee. If the client comes to me for 60 min, it's $60. If I go to the client for a 60 min, it's $60+$20 travel fee ($80 total). But I will do any length of time up to a 2 hour.
I met a lady that was a massage therapist that helped my mom convince me that this would be the profession for me! I never had a desire to do massage therapy, but only because I truly did not understand what all it entailed. Then after meeting my friend, she was able to explain what all went into it, and then it was much more appealing.
I have had all sorts of clients, from those who wish to relax and require long, light strokes, to those who have had athletic injuries from professional sports, to those who just have a lot of very tight muscles and need intense, concentrated deep work.
Recently my chiropractor referred me a patient of his, that now has gotten some relief with massage in conjunction with the adjustments and has decided to make massage a regular part of his routine.
If you're looking for a nice therapeutic massage, make sure the therapist has at least a couple years of experience working in a busy spa or clinic. I feel like the massage therapists that get regular massages themselves are better at giving massages as well. Also a therapist that doesn't just think about body work in a "no pain, no gain" way is probably in your best interest. Sometimes deeper is not always better. They can damage tissue if they go too deep too fast.
Be sure to mention any health concerns or recent injuries. If there have been any recent surgeries make sure you are 4-6 weeks post-op depending on what kind of surgery, before considering massage therapy. First trimester of a pregnancy is usually a contraindication for massage, so let your therapist know that as well.
