I love when a client comes into my space for the first time. I start off, like most massage therapist, with a simple health form, but after that nothing is the same from that point on. That health form is my jumping off point, a warm up, for understanding the goal of each client that comes in the door.
A massage with me at Metta Spa(Heather Small) will not only settle the body, relax the muscles, but get you started on your road to a healthier balanced mind body and spirit. One way that I will do that is to create your own personalized oils, allowing you to move forward each time you come in for your massage. Think about it for a moment, we all have some stresses in our lives, work, friends, our partners, kids ,taking care of our homes, each day presents us with a different challenge.The healthier the mind, body spirit connection is, the better off we are to handle the stresses that come our way. Some days are great, and others you cant wait to crawl into bed. So you come in for a massage, to relax those stressed muscles, and we talk a little about what brought you in, and what you would like to get from your massage session today. Maybe you have a lot of work to get done this week, or your mother-in-law is coming to visit, life is a constant change. How do you handle your daily stresses, good or bad?
This is where Metta Spa is different. My background starts many years ago,when I was a stay at home mom, when massage became a tool to help my kids, to relax them before bed or massage their bellies for digestion, the simple touch was so calming. So as my kids got older, I went off to school for massage therapy, this introduced me to many different groups of clients that need massage for many different ailments, I was quickly drawn to working with cancer clients. After completing my massage training I went on to continue my work with cancer clients and training in Boston with Dana Farbor, and Why Me in Worcester,MA. I have always been drawn to the side of holistic healing, which has brought me to the Ayuredic work that now incubuses the work I do. My training has moved forward with the goal of full body healing from massage, Ayurveda, Thai massage, meditation and herbal training.Together this allows me to create your massage session with personalized oils that will bring in balance of the mind, body and spirit.
Massage is a great place to start, from their you can add personalized oils, learn more about meditation, yoga, foods for your body type, along with other ways to help relax and settle the mind and body.
