About body work
What to expect at an appointment
First time clients will be asked to fill out an intake form. This form helps Alexis formulate a plan to help you reduce your stress and pain.
Once the intake form is completed, a 5 to 10 minute conversation (platica) regarding what your needs are, what your previous experience with massage is, health and wellness background as well as what the session will entail is conducted.
After a plan is in place you'll be given instruction on how to prepare for your session, time will be given to prepare.
All sessions start and end on time. Time has been built into the schedule to accommodate the intake, conversation, and preparation process to alleviate the need to feel rushed and to ensure you get your full therapy time.
