Frequently Asked Questions
Most massage and bodywork techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, it is entirely up to you what you want to wear. You should undress to your level of comfort. You will be properly draped during the entire session.

You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.

A relaxing Swedish massage is often a baseline for clients. In a general Swedish massage, your session may start with broad, flowing strokes that will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension. Often, a light oil or lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. The oil also helps hydrate your skin. You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort so that another approach may be taken. Massage and bodywork are most effective when your body is not resisting.
There are numerous types of massage and bodywork; various techniques utilize different strokes, including basic rubbing strokes, rocking movement, posture and movement re-education, application of pressure to specific points, and more. We can discuss which methods may be most appropriate for you.
Prior to the massage, feel free to ask the practitioner any questions about the technique or the upcoming session. During the massage, make yourself comfortable. The practitioner will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they need more or less pressure, another blanket, or anything else relevant to the session. If you have any questions regarding the session or about the particular technique you are receiving, feel free to ask.

Yes. That’s why it’s imperative that, before you begin your session, the practitioner asks general health questions. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor’s care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.
Scalp Micro-Pigmentation mimics the appearance of a fuller hairline disguising hair loss or an appearance of a full head of shaved hair. SMP also hides scars from hair transplants and other surgeries. SMP is ideal for men and women experiencing hair loss, thinning hair, alopecia areata or totalis and scarring.
The Scalp Artist International technique is carried out with only the latest state of the art equipment. We use an array of sterilized single-use hand crafted micro-needles specially manufactured to penetrate the dermal layer of the skin. We are able to create actual replicas of hair follicles and micro hairs. Hair follicle replication is a detailed process in which each hair follicle must be considered as an individual task. The process of implanting specific pigments at the epidermal level is completed with a specialized technique to produce a natural looking hairline on the sides, front and back. This optical hair simulation will create a natural looking hair density on your head. The Scalp Artist International Technique requires a high level of attention in order to consistently achieve the most outstanding results, which we consistently produce.
