Notes for Clients


  • Allow enough time so that you don't have to rush
  • A short consultation will be taken which will include relevant medical questions
  • Bring a list of your medications to your appointment
  • Consult your therapist prior to your session if you are, or suspect you are, pregnant

Aromatherapy & Massage

  • I generally perform aromatherapy and massage on a futon on the floor
    • Though I use a couch where appropriate
  • Expect to undress as oils are applied directly to the skin
    • Sheets and towels are draped over body areas not being worked, maintaining modesty and keeping you warm

Remedial & Sports Massage

  • Remedial & Sports Massage includes visual and range of mobility assessments best undertaken with the client observed in minimal clothing: underwear, short shorts, etc
    • Clients are not expected to undertake anything they are uncomfortable with and there are always ways to work around.

Shiatsu & Reiki

  • Are carried out at floor level on a cotton futon mattress
  • Is applied through your clothing, you remain fully clothed, oils are not used
  • Clients should wear light flexible clothing that will keep you warm such as leisure wear
    • Avoid denim and other restrictive clothing

Best to avoid

  • Avoid very hot baths before treatment
  • Avoid large or heavy meals prior to treatment rather have a snack an hour before
  • Avoid alcohol on the day of treatment

After care

  • To make the most of your session rest or take it easy after the treatment
  • Healing reactions caused by the release of toxins or emotions may be experienced
  • Drink plenty of water to flush out any toxins released

Additional aromatherapy after care

  • After your massage avoid skin washing for eight hours after treatment to allow the oils to have their full effect on the body.
