After filling out some paperwork, we will discuss what massage therapy would best suit you, based on your individual needs. Ruth will describe the flow of the massage to you, so that you get a feeling for how the massage session will go. Please, feel free to talk to her about the massage pressure you like as well as any concerns you might have. Your body will be covered with a sheet throughout the whole massage. The only body parts that will be uncovered will be the body parts that will be worked on.
Throughout the massage, Ruth wants you to be comfortable and she will attempt to minimize any pain or discomfort you may feel during your massage.
