In your first session with Jamie, he will go through a full intake process to get as much information as possible about your needs and intentions for your massage. If there is a specific physical issue which you would like addressed, Jamie will investigate to see if it is caused by your work, recreation, an old injury, or some other factor. He will also discuss the different techniques and methods he will be using in your session.
During your session, you are invited to be as quiet or participatory as you would like. Jamie may encourage you to take deep breaths, and to “breathe into” particular areas of the body and to exhale the tension from them. He may passively stretch parts of the body or take you into different postures to help the body unwind. He may use some subtle techniques in which he gently holds parts of the body and lets your system relax and realign.
After your session, Jamie will discuss with you his findings about your body and how to proceed in self-care. He will suggest stretches and exercises that will help the areas of discomfort and may suggest other forms of care like acupuncture, chiropractic, or physical therapy.
