“Can my partner observe while I am being massaged?”

I will allow this in certain cases. It is not a problem when receiving the “back, or full body” Swedish Massage, or even Hot Stone Therapy. Although I do prefer to work one on one in private with a client when we are doing Energy Balancing, or Sensual Healing as you will need to focus on the energies and cannot have distractions in the room.

“Do I have to be naked for massage?”

No not at all. I do take certain issues into consideration, for example religious convictions, a client’s comfort zone etc, I would not like to make anyone feel uncomfortable and over-exposed. I always have additional towels available to cover those parts of the body not being worked on, and also to keep the client warm and comfortable. The exception to this rule is when we do Energy Balancing and Sensual Healing, here I will use a loose towel which can be maneuvered easily. During this type of healing I will need an unfettered approach and full accessibility to the body as I work along the Chakras and energy lines of the body.

“Are there any negative effects to massage?’”

In most cases there will not be a negative effect. Never consume large amounts of alcohol before a massage, there could be a conflict with the Aromatherapy oils being used and could possibly lead to nausea. If a therapist works too hard and too long on a specific area of the body, especially with a new client, they can cause bruising of the muscle. Maybe cause that client to feel stiff and sore the next day. It is advisable to drink plenty of water after a therapy to flush out any toxins that have been loosened. A good therapist will always be aware of their client’s needs and limits and never push too hard or too deep. A good massage will always make you feel refreshed and relaxed, it will boost circulation and rid your body of any blockages and allow a good flow of energy.

“With your couples workshop, do we only observe the work and listen to a lecture?”

No not at all, I believe you have to experience a “hands-on” approach. We chat beforehand so that I get to know you better, I explain the different techniques carefully. Then when you are ready to begin the class, one of you will massage the other’s back. I will guide you through a manual (which you keep) and correct any mistakes. After that you trade places so that whoever received massage now gives massage. This is how I conduct the class, once the back and leg work has been completed we take a short break and discuss what you experienced. Thereafter we continue with the front of the body. I have found this to be the best technique and couples remember the techniques more effectively

“In a couples workshop what happens if a man gets aroused?”

This is a perfectly natural response as he is working with his loved one. Why should he not get aroused, or the woman get turned on by his touch. They are there to learn how to rekindle their relationship and their intimacy. Nothing else will happen, they will continue to learn the massage techniques. I also give them instruction, as well as hints and tips on how to keep their partner aroused, which they can practice later at home.

"If you have not explored your body you will not be able to explore the soul. The methodology of exploration is the same, but begin with the body because the body is the visible part of your soul. Start with the visible and then slowly move toward the invisible. Start with the known and then move toward the unknown. Start from the periphery and then go deeper toward the center" ~Osho
