The Evolving Spirit Experience
Upon arriving at our secure location, you are greeted with an offer of green tea or water for your comfort. A brief consultation precedes each session. During our consultation, the completion of required forms and session goals are discussed. This initial connection is vital to the Evolving Spirit experience and prompt arrival for your appointment is essential.
Clients are led to our relaxing treatment room to prepare for their custom experience. Concise instructions on proper disrobing and table placement are given. Choice of music, pressure and if applicable, aromatherapy are discussed and noted.

After the massage

If possible, allow some quiet time after the massage and don't go back to work or other responsibilities immediately.
How you feel after the massage will vary based on the style of massage used, the length of the session, and the demands you place on your body afterward. Feelings range from being relaxed, renewed and centered, to invigorated, excited or experiencing a rush of clarity or new energy and insight, to recognizing your true level of fatigue (particularly if you can be "off duty" for the rest of the day) and wanting only to rest.
Clinical types of massage may leave the body free from chronic tightness or acute pain patterns, but may replace it with a mild soreness from the pressure applied. After this type of massage, you may want to rest the area before jumping back into the activity that produced the soreness.
Realize that the benefits of massage tend to be cumulative, so typically, you will feel better as you get additional massages.
