Welcome to Your First Visit
Congratulations on your decision to visit our Clinic! I am an independent contractor at two locations: Fort Worth and Dallas. I am blessed to have the support and respect for my practice in these locations.
I am autonomous and independent in the application of the different treatments (Massage Therapy) for which I have been trained for. On this page you will find information on the type of work I do and what to expect from our session . I am not your Typical Massage Therapist nor are my sessions. Unfortunately, some people have settled for mediocre, inexpensive work because they felt better, relaxed or comfortable . That is not necessarily an indication of healing.
On your first visit, you will receive a complete postural & body assessment to determine how to address your present/past condition, It is important that you check out my website before your first visit.
During this visit, your Massage Therapist & Medical Massage Practitioner will review with you the intake form as well as the session plan. Then you will proceed to undress and whether you stay draped or undraped during the session is perfectly fine. However a consent form will require your signature.
The following are the Techniques/Modalities I specialize in: Lymphatic Drainage, Visceral Massage, Manual Therapy for the Breast Tissue (Title 25, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 141 amended release form will be completed when this situation arises) Dolphin MPS therapy, and Scar Release with the Dolphin Neurostim, TMJ/TMD Massage, Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi, Muscle Release Technique, and Reflexology- just to mention a few.
We do test the work (treatment) as we go and after the session, including: walking, marching in place, jump, push, pull, lift, bend etc., to check if there is any progress or modify plan to achieve our goal.
Only the client and the therapist are allowed in the Massage room during the session without any exceptions.
Ultimately the goal is to help you function as optimally as possible by applying care, knowledge, experience, and training available.
PROCRASTINATION, AND SHAME ARE THE THIEVES OF MASSAGE
