How long will my massage last?
Good question. About 55 minutes is the usual length of time for an "hour" long full-body massage. This is because the therapist must allow time for a few questions, client dressing/undressing, and other incidental tasks (like washing my hands).
What kind of massage do you do?
I am trained and experienced in several styles of massage therapy and will use any combination of them to suit your needs. In no particular order: Swedish massage, Deep Tissue massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Sports massage, Myofascial Release, Reflexology, and Reiki. Learn more info about massage styles I use.
How much will a massage cost?
Typically Your first massage could possibly last up to 1.5 hours with initial consult and massage, cost is 75.00, after this visit. Charges are $75.00 for a 1 hour (incall) of massage. Discounts packages are available - just ask. Gift Certificates available.
Do you have specials?
Yes, from time to time I run specials. Call 210-860-2654 for details, or check out the Specials listed on the Yknot web page.
How often should I have massage therapy?
Another good question. How often you have massage therapy depends on your goals. Call me and we can discuss it.
Are you licensed to perform massage therapy?
Absolutely Yes! I am a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), registered by the State of Texas Department of Health, Massage Therapy Board. Additionally, I am a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN), and Certified Myofascial Therapist.
Will you send me your picture?
No. If you want massage therapy my looks aren't important except to note that I dress in an appropriate and professional manner.
Does the Massage Therapist expect me to "chat" during the massage?
No. The decision to "chat" is entirely yours. Being quiet can enhance your relaxation during the massage and the therapist understands and welcomes that enhancement. If you wish to chat during the massage, the therapist will probably accommodate you. During therapeutic massage procedures the therapist may ask you pertinent questions.
Do I need to be undressed?
No. It's not absolutely necessary, but for the best results during a full-body massage it's recommended. You really don't need to worry, most professional therapists "drape" you with a sheet or towel(s), your modesty can and should be preserved. I use full draping and expose only the body part actually being massaged.
Even with draping I still would like to leave on my underclothes, is that OK?
Absolutely. Undress only to your level of comfort. If the therapist tells you that you MUST take off all clothing, find another therapist.
Will the massage be painful?
Yes and No. Relaxation massage shouldn't be painful. You should feel free to let the therapist know if the pressure being used is causing you pain. You can get great results without pain.
Yes. there may be some pain with a therapuetic massage for injuries new and old. Due to tissue changes and other factors. This will improve with each massage.
Can massage help me with pain from my medical condition?
Yes. Massage can help to lessen or eliminate pain stemming from a wide range of medical conditions that include fibromyalgia, lupus, myofascial pain syndrome, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, tmj pain, migraines, and others. I also use other methods for pain relief such as Neuromuscular Therapy and Myofascial Release. There are some conditions for which massage is contraindicated, make sure to tell your Massage Therapist what condition you're seeking relief for.
I bruise easily, can I still get a massage?
Yes. You should inform your Massage Therapist that you bruise easily and why i.e. medications, medical condition, etc. Your Massage Therapist can adjust his/her pressure and technique to prevent or minimize bruising.
Another therapist I went to said that my knots had to be relieved by "digging them out" which was quite painful, is that right?
To my knowledge it's not right. Knots in muscles, even deeper muscles, can usually be relieved with light or moderate pressure that causes only some discomfort.
Do you offer "Sensuous Massage" or "Sexual Release"?
NO! Don't even think about it.
Can you recommend some books about massage? How about music for massage?
Yes, and now you can order them by from this site.
