Sessions

New Client Visit 120-minute

This session combines a 30-minute intake session with 90-minutes of bodywork. This session lasts a total of 2 hours; please plan accordingly.

     Our first meeting is important. We will: 1) complete a full medical intake, 2) consider your overall goals and how massage and bodywork can assist you in achieving such goals, and 3) establish the general direction of your first session based on your overall presentation, primarily addressing chronic stress-related symptoms or chronic range-of-motion loss. For deep tissue work, your participation and verbal feedback are necessary and encouraged. Ultimately, we will strive to identify the root cause(s) of your primary complaint and how to best address it(them).

     During our second session, we will further refine your treatment plan. Based on your feedback during our pre-session interview and my observations, we will modify each session as needed (such as duration and frequency) to help you meet your goal(s).

     Your therapist strongly believes in the efficacy of massage and bodywork applied with intention, education, intuition, compassion, and as part of a wellness program. He looks forward to assisting you on your journey towards health and well-being.

Special Price: $100 ($20 savings); includes complimentary aromatherapy diffusion.

                           

 

Signature 60/90/120

Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork 60/90/120

Therapeutic: of, or relating to, healing treatment; from the Greek 'therapeuin,' minister to.

Deep relaxation is the bedrock of healing and the primary goal of these signature therapeutic services. A deeply relaxed body-mind allows our own innate healing abilities to thrive and restore balance to stressed systems. Depth of pressure will be determined by your own body's limiting holding/stress patterns, pain level, and (in)flexibility during each session. Pressure will exceed those limitations only in gentle and supportive ways to nudge and support the body-mind's healing potential. The structure and flow of each session emerges naturally from, and out of consideration for, your stated goals as well as for your overall well-being. Thus, every session is fully-customized for maximum therapeutic outcomes. Additionally, realistic and compassionate self-care recommendations, instruction, and guidance are included with these services and are provided in the office, on this website, over the phone, or through email.

     If chronic stress, worry, discomfort, and/or pain affects your daily life, begin or continue your healing journey here today.

$60 for 60-minutes  (includes complimentary aromatherapy diffusion)

$90 for 90-minutes (includes complimentary aromatherapy diffusion)

$120 for 120-minutes (includes complimentary aromatherapy diffusion)

 

Mobile Chair Massage

30 minutes: $30 +

Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair which I bring to your location. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedules

Fees for this service:

Base fee: $30 for a 30-minute chair massage plus appropriate travel fees.

On-Site travel fees:

     Within the Village of Barrington (up to 2.5 miles): Base fee plus $10

     2.5 to 5 miles from our office: Base fee plus $20

Wellness Chair Massage Program

Modern living, with its repetitive sitting, overuse of computers and smartphones, increased mental/physical stress, deteriorating posture, overdependence on factory-produced convenience foods, and irregular/decreased sleep wreaks havoc on our neuromuscular system (along with every other bodily system). Chair massage in a home or office setting can disrupt such over-taxation of our nervous systems and allow us space to restfully breathe. Clients remain clothed during the session. Hair will remain relatively untouched (unless scalp work is requested), and shoe removal is encouraged--a bit of tranquility to refresh sore bodies and tired minds. 

    The purpose of this service is to provide individual, 10- to 12-minute relaxation chair massages for employers, employees, and/or groups in your office, home, or other appropriate gathering place. However, group size and total booked time will determine the actual duration of each massage. Incorporate chair massage into your personal healthcare regimen weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, and begin reaping the benefits. 

     Please call or email for complete fees, availability, and other details.
