General Questions

He is passionate about his work and compassionate. All patients are assured that they will receive professional and compassionate care.

Tell me about the treatment process?

Will there be an assessment or just a treatment?

All new patients require an assessment. How extensive depends on the patient’s needs. In some instances, if you are a repeat client and require a relaxation massage only, the assessment component is short. Professionalism and client wellbeing absolutely requires a review of the client’s needs even if this is very brief.

Will I need to disrobe?

Not necessarily. It depends on the type of treatment and the treatment technique required. In all instances the patient’s modesty is respected and this is reflected in the draping if linens are required.
