Moon for Massage, LLC
Hello! Let's talk about why I love my job so much!
I've lived with Fibromyalgia for a very long time; I'm conversant with chronic pain, and the benefits that massage can add to managing chronic pain. Additionally, I strive to find the things we can do to resolve some of the issues that can contribute to chronic pain.
I'm also trained in Bodywork for PTSD/Trauma, using a protocol that helps bring anxiety down so that healing has space to begin. This is a non-invasive, light-touch technique that helps the body do what it thinks is best - not what we think is best.
While there are always issues that an individual therapist is unable to manage, I have a broad network of bodywork specialists I'm always happy to refer out to.
My commitment is to your benefit. Period.
First, do no harm.
Every facet of my care for my clients is intentional, and determined to meet your needs. Never forget -- this is YOUR session. YOUR time. YOUR money. All are valuable and I honor that value. I have a no-tip policy; it's more important to me to have your body on the table so let's just forget the tip, k?
Intake is important! During your first session, we'll work together to build your history profile, so I'm aware of what your needs are. We'll also work to build a treatment plan going forward, so we can get you in the best shape possible.
Having lived with chronic pain; having suffered trauma; these things have shaped me to seek a way of helping others in whatever way I can. Sometimes, chronic pain is unavoidable. How can we reduce that pain, as much as possible? Can we reduce the anxiety that accompanies that pain? These are the things that drive me.
