Where will my massage session take place?
Your massage will be performed in a dedicated clinic room located inside Shane’s home. This clinic room is warm, comfortable and inviting. Comforted by the Himalayan Salt lamp burning, relaxing music and aromatherapy oils filtering throughout the room, you will be completely relaxed by the end of your treatment.
What do I wear during my treatment?
This depends on the type of treatment booked. When performing Reflexology, Cranial Sacral Balancing and Reiki, you remain fully clothed. Other treatments such as massages require the removal of all clothing except your briefs. You will have complete privacy to disrobe and lie face down on the massage table, covering yourself with a large towel. Once you are comfortable and ready for your treatment, Shane will re-enter the room to commence your treatment. You will be covered by a towel at all times, with only the body part being treated exposed.
I’m pregnant. Can I have a massage?
You cannot receive any form of massage in the first trimester. After the first trimester, you can receive a massage with the written permission of your Doctor.
I have a cold or flu. Can I have a relaxing massage?
Colds, flu and other medical conditions, including migraine headaches, are contra indicated and therefore massage cannot be performed until the condition has been resolved.
I have sunburn. Can I receive a massage to relieve the pain?
Sunburn is another contra indication, therefore massage cannot be performed until the sunburn dissipates.
I am currently undergoing cancer treatment. Can I receive a massage?
Any form of cancer is contra indicated. Therefore massage cannot be performed.
I have a heart pacemaker installed. Can I receive a massage?
Massage cannot be performed if a heart pacemaker is installed.
For further information relating to health and medical conditions you may have, please phone Shane for more advice. In some circumstances a letter from your medical practitioner or GP will be required before a massage can be given. I will be able to advise you of this, during our short consultation.
“As an older woman, having a vision impaired practitioner is a bonus…Girls, I’m sure you know what I mean. On occasions, I have called Shane crying in pain, and he has made time for me. I’ve left his massage table, smiling not crying…
There’s another thing I like, when Shane hits a spot that hurts, I can say…”What’s that?” and that steel trap of a mind opens and he rattles off all the body’s big named bits and where and why they hurt…”
