HOURS OF OPERATIONS AND FEES
I have a new office space 7 days a week but will be available for treatments by appointment only. Please call, text or email me to find the best time for your session.
Follow-up treatments are possible in Wailuku.
The initial consultation involves a short but thorough case taking and a review of your medical history. Each session will start with an assessment of your specific discomfort or pain and the changes since the last treatment. The duration of a session is 45 – 60 min depending on the assessment and the immediate reactions of your body. I often give physical or spiritual homework in order to support your body in its healing process.
I accept Workers’ Comp and Motor Vehicle Accident Insurances. Talk to your insurance provider before your first appointment and make sure the costs are covered and to have your No-fault claim number. Please bring the referral from your physician. He will include the diagnosis codes for your condition and outline the time for which care is approved.
I accept cash, personal checks, Venmo or PayPal. If you like to pay your session with Paypal or Venmo please do so before your session. Thank you
$130 per session in my office
BASIC CONCEPTS OF MY BODYWORK
Find the source
You will discover that I work on parts of your body that you may not recognize as related to your problem. I always try to find the source of your health issue in order to help your body to heal. The discomfort or pain you are experiencing at the moment may just be a symptom or a compensation for an underlying problem.
Treatments are most effective when you are an active participant. I will sometimes ask you to support my techniques with your breathing, to bring your awareness to particular parts of your body or even to assist me with active motion or contraction.
Individual healing process
Your body heals at its own pace. Your body’s response to my treatment may not match your expectations. Healing not always appears as a consistent progression of improvement. Being open minded to your own innate healing ability will encourage your healing process.
BEFORE YOUR FIRST SESSION
Each session starts with a short assessment to decide what area puts the most stress onto your system on the day of your session. Our bodies are very complex and it is not always the area that hurts which needs attention in order to reduce pain.
You will then lie down comfortably clothed or in your undergarment (no board shorts please), depending on the area which needs to be treated. Most of the techniques will be performed on a massage table in supine (face-up) or side lying. Some visceral techniques require bent legs or a seated positions. I usually start with a light touch from the feet up in order to assess restrictions in your whole body. Some problems may need work done inside the mouth in order to release tension in the face or the jaw.
The experiences during a session are as unique and individual as the clients themselves and mostly even differ from session to session. Sometimes you may deeply relax or even fall asleep. Other times you may recall memories or express emotions. Some just remain still during a session and hardly notice anything, others develop an awareness and experience sensations in the areas I address. Active participation in a session often leads to better results.
A reduction of pain or an increase in function may occur immediately after the session or may develop gradually over the next few days. The immediate results vary from person to person – some clients prefer to sleep for a few hours after a session, while others experience a big increase in energy. The body often needs 3-4 days in order to “digest” the tissue changes and to resume its natural healing process. It is quite usual for improvement to continue after a session.
