Do I really have to change out of my street clothes and wear a mask?

Yes please. We all need to work together so that we can all stay safe. Trust me, you will feel better changing out of your street clothes.  Please bring a clean set of comfy clothes that are not constricting, and do not contain jean, zippers, belts, or buttons.

What if I have to cancel my appointment?

Please try to give as much notice as possible. If you are still feeling up to it we can have your appointment over Zoom or phone.  If you are not feeling up to it I will reschedule your appointment at a more convenient time.  There are no cancellation fees at this time. You can also request to be put on the  list for spots that open up on short notice. 

Fully Vaccinated? Now what?

Even if you are fully vaccinated a mask is still required. We are in close association during your treatment for over an hour.. There are so many variants and I believe that we still need to be vigilant. Thank you for your cooperation. Working together keeps us all healthy. :)

How is Shiatsu massage different from other massage?

Shiatsu Massage is an oriental form of bodywork that is performed fully clothed on a table, floor, or chair. Therapists use their thumbs, palms, elbows, and feet; along with facilitated stretches to free up restrictions in the energy pathways of the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine, and 5-Element Acupressure are incorporated into every treatment.  Because of this some say it is "Beyond Massage!"

What is muscle testing?

Muscle testing gives us information. It is a bio-feedback tool used to find and locate stress.  If a muscle is locked and strong we say there is balanced energy.  If a muscle unlocks or is weak we say there is some sort of imbalance.

How do you muscle test?

After doing some pre-checks and checking your range of motion.  The muscles being tested are put into a contracted position. As the muscle is extended, gradual pressure is applied along with 2 pounds of pressure, for 2 seconds, for 2 inches.  Anyone can learn it! Take a Touch for Health online class this fall with me and learn how to muscle test yourself and others!

What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is the science of movement in the body via the muscles. Kinesiology can also identify physiological, biochemical, and or psychological imbalances using muscle testing and other corrective techniques to locate the stress in the body/mind. It is very efficient and gets to the root cause of stress, saving the client time and money.

Can Muscle Testing diagnose or cause any harm?

We do not diagnose diseases, heal others, or prescribe. You cannot tell the future, read someones mind, harm yourself, or harm others with muscle testing. When we muscle test we are looking for stress and imbalances. As Practitioners we act as facilitators to your health.  You are responsible for your own healing journey. Muscle testing is safe, reliable, and effective.
