What type of services are offered:
I always find clients struggling to communicate what they want out of lack of knowledge or personal experience. Most of them just know something is wrong and they need me to fix it! Well the first step is awareness! So thank yourself and your mind for allowing the body to have some personal time to feel better! Below is what I have developed as common treatment goals for moving energy and promoting well being.

First Session Goals...
As a massage therapist the goals for the first session with a client can vary depending on the individuals needs, preferences, and any health conditions they may have. However some common goals for a first massage session include:
1. Assessment: the therapist will perform an initial assessment to understand the clients needs, any pain points, and to identify any areas of tension or discomfort
2. Establishing trust and communication: The therapist will aim to establish a rapport with the client and create an environment which is conducive to relaxation and healing. This may involve discussing the clients preferences and comfort level, and encouraging open communication throughout the session
3. Developing a treatment plan: Based on the assessment, the therapist will develop a treatment plan that is tailored to the clients specific needs and goals. This may involve selecting massage techniques, adjusting pressure and intensity levels, and identifying any areas that require particular attention.
4. Providing education and guidance: The therapist may offer guidance on self-care techniques or lifestyle adjustments that can help support the clients wellness goals.
Overall the primary goal of the first session is to establish a foundation for ongoing treatment and create a positive, supportive environment that promotes relaxation, healing, and overall well-being!
