Frequently asked questions
I am a beginner and seek to experience the health benefits of a body and mind centered massage. What do i do?
This is a relaxing but much more, it is restorative and nurturing.
If you are new at this, it is best to learn slowly and start with little steps that will open the mind and body Experience a LOMI LOM massage first and we take it from there. Walking comes before running when it is a new experience in your body.
For the people who just had regular, erotic, linear, technical, localized or non intentional massage, it may be hard to understand that MASSAGE CAN HEAL and at many different levels. IT DOES more and for the same or less investment!
We can coach you softely to bring more body/self awareness thus you can experience some or all aspects (physical, mental, emotional , spiritual and sexual) of our SELF-HEALING process.
Your needs and your wants are important. However the imutual ntention sets the tone and the results. Where you are in your journey? where do you want to be? What do you want to experience?
Many people want relaxation and or restoration and or pain relief. Many don't even know how to relax nor know /feel how good a body can feel.
It's all fine as long as we intend on the same goals we will get there. We adapt to your needs and offer the solutions. It is not the other way around. This is deeper transformational work.
You decide what you want from the beginning and we respect your goals.
However if you want to be transformed you need to be engaged in the process.
I am very stressed and my productivity is decreasing. What do i do?
Yes! I understand. Many lives have been compromised because of this incessant
mental chatter or wanting something else (instead of what you have).
It takes a while to heal from a life run from mostly the demanding mind. You will learn how the body self-heals and you will be freed from important life-altering disconnects toy our body and feelings. Habits can be changed in this quiet process of re-connecting. The mind is neuroplastic and has been known with MRI to change its physical structure too!
You may be in a mode to receive and regenerate. We will adapt to your needs. You may need at least 4 sessions in order to build up and learn a stronger relaxation response. As you grow in your awareness you will build in more benefits into this life-enhancing process.
I only had RMT Massage before and am limited to that kind of experience. What to expect?
We need to establish what you need to accomplish first.
It only makes sense to address your needs such as pains, stress, conditions relief?
As we know your objectives we can adapt to your requests. Please do not do a random massage because you get random results often. Push the envelope to ensure it it is incremental and holistic and get maximum benefits.
Rmt is great for sports, but you may not be into sports or have just muscular tightness You may need to be feel a great sense of well-being wihich come from an enhanced flow of chi and circulation.
This is what many people seek! Not just a stressful or painful massage but one that rejuvenates and restores you and is conducive to feeling great living in your body!
You need to do it to get that. Please book a time.
Am i draped?
This is not like an RMT massage where everything is covered.
Lomi Lomi is a very expansive and freeing and i need the freedom to move with oils with long strokes too. I
hope you are asking me this question with the proper intention though.
If you want to Feel much more connected due to the embracing long movements. Usually we use just a little or medium towel to cover YOUR PRIVATE PARTS.
If you keep asking me questions about underwear and your private parts, you may have too many issues and i suggest you get a dressed thai massage. Please I wish you focus on the substance of the work and its benefits and results not the underwear. I hope that i am clearer, if not read this section again. I cannot help it if you had the wrong experiences, but this one i assure you is a very good experience and i hope it will erase the last one.
Please do not come here though with the intention to expose your private parts. Please respect the practitioner who needs to focus on her work and your health. There are many practitioners who do very good work professionally and dot much more good to your wellness than the tip type of massage.
I am very stressed and usually can't feel much ( or feel really good). This inability to feel happens also during a massage. What do you suggest?
Please book 2 hours. You need to broken in. Don't get me wrong. Clients have gotten their lives back by re connecting with their bodies. They were taking drugs and have started a downward spiral mentally and physically as an example. Or they have forgotten to relate at a deeper level with their family...... Never understimate the power of restoration and body mind connection. It is very powerful and effective to change lives.
What can i expect from massage?
You can certainly feel more and more grounded and joyful and rejuvanted in your body as you learn and appreciate your body's talk..
You can melt away some habits and improve relaxation response among others.
And you can feel relief from stress and pain are often a given when we practice massage intentionally and energetically and holistically. Most people have an awareness that allows them to feel what they feel from enhanced chi and blood flow!
One often feels a greater connection with yourself and your body and helps you to regain access to your humainity and to the world of feelings and senses and intuition.
YOU CAN FEEL THIS YUMMINESS THAT YOU NEVER FELT BEFORE at this deeper level.
1-restoration from stress
3- stress relief
5-feeling rejuvenated and revitalized
5-hope and wellness
6-better social interactions
What are your policies?
Please state clearly what you wish to experience or the end result.
Respect that i am a professional AND NOT YOUR GF
You need to cancel 24 hours in advance if needed or there will be a charge of 35.00
Is this relaxing?
This is more than relaxing. It is restorative. And brings consciousness to your everyday habits that can help or impede your progress.
what are my choices?
i like to give people the choice to just get a massage on a table or to transform their lives. So many people ask for the world and yet think they will change by simply sleeping on a massage table?
YOUR CHOICE DETERMINES THE RESULTS.
My mission is to wake up people to their greater potential and be more deliberately purposeful when the body plays a powerful part of your formula for wholeness.
If you don't want or are not on a journey. That is fine, you ask for a relaxing massage! You will get that.
We can choose from the many modalities offered:
Lomi Lomi, Acupressure, Reflexology of head and feet, Thai Massage and mens health. The solutions are based on your needs and issues.
Is it painful?
no it is not painful like RMT's deep tissue. however i can be deep as we go.
However my goal is not to give you pain but to release pain. Thus the importance to discuss your relationship with pain.
If you want to release pain (we co -create this) then you have to embrace the pain first , hiding it or escaping it will not bring self-healing. It is your choice and so are the results that accompany your choice.
However there are many times we don't feel anything until we have massage. It is surprising to many who don't ever consider that their body has a voice and it speaks loudly.
There are some clients who have pain the first few days. IT IS NOT BECAUSE I AM HARD IT IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE SOMETHING THAT IS OUT OF BALANCE. THIS IS THE BODY SPEAKING THAT YOU ARE ALIVE AND YOUR BODY IS RESPONDING TO THE MASSAGE VERY WELL. HOWEVER IF YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE SELF-HEALING I CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SHORT LIVED RESULTS.
EVERYBODY RESPONDS DIFFERENTLY TO MASSAGE. JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE PAIN IT DOESN'T MEAN ANOTHER PERSON WITH EXACTLY THE SAME MASSAGE WILL HAVE SAME RESULTS AND FEELINGS. PAIN IS A GOOD SIGN THAT IT IS WORKING TO BENEFIT YOU. WESTERN MEDICINE HAS INGRAINED IN US THAT WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO FEEL ANYTHING BECAUSE THE DRUGS SEDATE OR STOP CERTAIN CONDITIONS THAT WERE THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE HELP THE HEALING PROCESS. I REALLY NEED TO BE CLEAR THAT HEALING CRISIS CAN HURT A BIT BUT JUST A PASSING PROCESS.
I NEED TO EMPHASIZE THAT HEALING MASSAGE IS VERY POWERFUL TO ACTIVATE YOUR HEALING AND YOU MAY HAVE SOME PAIN BUT YOU WILL NORMALIZE. SO THERE IS NOTHING TO FEAR. WOULD YOU RATHER TAKE A PILL OR EXERCISE 20 HOURS? IF MASSAGE CAN HELP YOUR BODY REBALANCE IN A FEW HOURS, IT MAY BE TIME TO BE GRATEFUL YOU ARE GETTING RESULTS!
What is a shift?
It means breakthrough. It can happen at any level: mental, emotional and physical and also spiritual. It's the most wonderful experience as i am concerned and the many clients who are aware of it.
what is the mens' health process?
this is a unique and natural program to enhance your quality of life and sexual life. First it is very relaxing however it is more. It has healing restorative properties.
It is for the men who can go beyond their limited past ideas of just pleasure because this pleasure is more expansive and built on your inside out effects of a body that is tuned to a greater ocean of flow. The body re learns how to feel! But this is not genital based exclusively nor is it cheap erotic movements. This is real massage for real men for real results! YES THIS IS MASSAGE but based on mind body connection to ensure you transcend the performance stressors!
It is a professionally, holistically and energetically performed protocol to cater to men's sexual issues with body- mind therapies. There is much body awareness building through massage but obviously if it is emotional than you need to look a bit deeper...however this is extremely effective under many circumstances whether erectile dys funtion or endurance or orgasmic feelings. and have seen many men come back to life.
Please follow the instruction on how to get started on my men's health page. i will need to know your situation and your goals before i start my process. you wil need to walk before you run. When you book at least 1.5 hr we can chat about it for about 30 min and you can get a massage to start opening your mind to what is possible.
i start the men's health when we both trust and understand what we are doing and how we are doing it. Since this can be 6 to 8 sessions, we need to be aligned to be stress-free and in the flow.
i will not discuss this at any lenght on texting! If you insist this is not for you.
What don't you do?
THIS IS NOT A CHINESE OR TIP PARLOUR AND PRETEND WE DO MASSAGE. PLEASE IF YOU ARE UNSURE REREAD WHAT I SAY OR ASK. STOP PRESUMING THAT ALL MASSAGE IS TRIVIAL WHEN MANY HAVE CHANGED THEIR LIVES FROM THIS PROTOCOL.
WE LIKE TO DEAL WITH MORE DISCERNING PROFESSIONALS WHO SEEK LONG LASTING CHANGE AND VALUE.
What will be helpful to self-heal?
From the years of experience i find that people who are more opened minded and willing to transcend their comfort zone are very likely to get results.
If you want things done your way or based on your past it is very hard to operate in the flow. The journey to self-healing is a journey of discovery and its often what you don't know.
It's worth every moment to discover your potential and the body intelligence emerging as you bring yourself to that awareness.
What is unique about this process?
After a decade of listening i learned how the body talks and its innate intelligence to heal itself. We allow the body to do what it is meant to do: heal itself.
Also another aspect that is of utmost importance is the massages ability to enhance blood and chi which is the foundation of good health. This will allow the body to be activated and naturally self-heal.
When we follow a program, i can also help clients build the kind of body awareness that help you become whole and affecting your outer world. Being grounded transforms how you cope with your health and your family and friends including stress.
From here starts the ripple of positive outcomes.
Is this massage adapted to me?
We go as far into the healing process as you allow. However if you want results you need to live in your body hon. You can simply tell us what you wish for. But don't ask for a generalized or technical massage and expect results for example in your neck when you did not state your needs clearly.
Please be direct and state your needs and thus we will customize our protocol.
THIS IS NOT A GENERIC MASSAGE FITS ALL. PLEASE.
I feel confused about this?
After we talk we can find the needs/solutions to your particular situation. This is a very powerful restorative and pain relieving protocol and many don't know it exists because they have been told and fed cheap technical or erotic massage for years.....however there is more ! There is SELF_HEALING!
It can help you mentally,physically, emotionally and sexually. (see men's health rejuvenation program if need support)
You can be confused also because you never truly felt relaxed and don't know the full health potentials of a life enhancing body mind and holistic massage. Today massage schools are just producing many thousands of new RMT who learned programmed linear technical massage where there is little concern about the whole process of healing and self healing. Do not dumb down what can potentially change your life in many areas like my clients. (please read how massage can affect you)
You cannot imagine how good the body feels when your are in the flow of chi and blood movements.
it not only feels good but it's an actual physical sensation that you feel deeply and changes your life.
What is so special about LOMI LOMI Massage?
It is deeper, more restorative and nurturing.
Techniques are different , longer and wider and life-enhancing
The feelings are more diffused and fascinating.
You will feel a surge of new life.
Can it get better than that?
IF IT IS NOT OFFERED ON MY WEB SITE I DON'T OFFER IT PERIOD
I am a bit annoyed by men asking for non professional massage.
If you want to alleviate your prostate symptoms I CAN HELP YOU and it is extremely effective but don't ask a professional to entertain you.
MY GOAL IS HEALING WHICH OUTLASTS ANY EROTIC ACT!
How do you prefer to communicate about this process?
i don't mind a couple or more texts based on your needs and expectations however i will not spend more than 15 minutes on texts usually.
I have a web site and an faq to guide people through this process too.
Sorry but i cannot afford to be misunderstood on digital communication where it easily get out of context. so I recommend we talk on the phone if you have alot of stress or pains. Than you can book a time when we mutually trust this is good for you.
This is a professional very healing massage and I need to know that It's clearly represented and that you clearly represent yourself and your intentions.
What do you mean by you don't know what you don't know?
If you never had a massage before, no need to judge something that you don't truly know
If you only had rmt massage before, no need to judge that it's all the same thing.
If you only had erotic massage before please stop judging that all women do that crappy service based on titillation but not on true massage nor a healing massage! I wish that this BS stops here.
so unless you try a holistic life - enhancing massage YOU TRULY DON"T KNOW.
so unless you give it a change to work in your body YOU TRULY DON"T KNOW.
WHY IS THIS SOMETIMES DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND MASSAGE AS A HEALING TOOL?
Unfortunately, massage as a powerful healing tool has been twisted with untrained and sex trade practitioners. Even the scientists writing the healing books who never got a good massage will dismiiss the power of massage since they just don't know or have not experienced! It makes my job a bit more complicated to explain given alll these programmed ideas and past experiences.
What are my choices?
You have the right to ask for what you think you need.
Do you need pain/stress or condition relief?
And those are the major categories.
Based on your needs, we look at solutions.. however it is an unfolding as the body speaks his truth. It is a wonderful process.
