How Should I Prepare For the Session?
-The best is to refrain from heavy caffeine or heavy food 2-4 hours before the appointment time. Definitely no alcohol, it actually dulls the senses, and you won’t have as deep of a session. Fresh breath and healthy attitude help. You are able to shower at my temple before the session and after and I do prefer it. Why? Because coming in off the street requires a transition into relaxation time and the water of the shower is that conduit of ease and slowing down….It’s part of the experience.
What do you wear?
-I generally wear a light dress or slip that leaves me plenty of fluidity in movement. I do not work nude or topless.
Is there mutual touching?
-Yes and No. There is not mutual sensual or sexual touching. This is so I can hold the best possible space to honor your process. We do however, explore the energies of giving and receiving as part of the therapeutic aspect of this work, so that you can learn, grow and experience authentic touch that is coming from a heart space. While this is not a technical bodywork experience and does offer much more warmth and nurturing than traditional healing work, there are definite boundaries.
What should I do with the Donation? -Please bring it in a plain envelope and leave it in the donation box in the bathroom. Or if you prefer, simply pay pal me. If I am visiting you please have it in an unsealed plain envelope and please leave it in the bathroom.
What if I am late?
-I will do my best to make up the time if I am able. Please call or text if you are running late. If I cannot, then I will do my best to make up the time in a future session but I cannot guarantee made up time.
What about your donations?
-I set up a sliding scale payment arrangement so that you feel comfortable affording what feels right for you. Please do not try and negotiate donations outside of that. If you are wanting to book several sessions it is my pleasure to put together a package offering so you feel good about your budget over time. Simply inquire. The donations I set are comprable to the donations in my field.
Do you get aroused in the session?
-I get turned on to the life energy that is being generated and I feel pleasure in supporting you to go deeper. This session is not about my journey, it is about yours, so I keep the focus on you. This allows me to fly with the energy of Tantra and bring in the greatest love, care and presence. This space of genuine devotion, I find absolutely pleasurable and healing.
What is the timing?
-Sessions begin the moment you enter the door and are timed to end as you leave. If the session is needing more time and I have it to offer, I do. I do not like to keep a stop watch but sometimes I need to stay to time and sometimes you have somewhere you need to be. Let me know if you have a definitive time schedule so I can make sure you are leaving on time.
How Long Have you been doing this work?
-Many lives. 🙂 But in this life, about 10 years professionally. But most probably, all of my life.
What if I have to cancel?
-Sometimes life happens. If you give me 24 hour notice, life moves on and we find another time. If you give me less than 24 hour notice I do charge $50% of the original amount as a re-book fee and can hold your deposit towards the re-booking if you have made a deposit on online. If it is extenuating circumstances or you shared with me at the time of booking that you may need to cancel last minute, I wave this fee.
What if I want to bring you something as a gift?
-Awesome! i love gifts, but I don’t expect them. Flowers, chocolate, gift certificates to Barnes and Noble, Victoria’s Secret, Free People or the Apple store all make me feel like a kid at Xmas.
What kinds of oils do you use? Do they smell?
-My oil is unscented and upon your arrival I add the aromatherapy of high grade organic essential oils based on what you feel you are needing (i.e energy/relaxation/clarity etc). If you don’t want scents, then plain grape seed or coconut oil is all you will receive. Let me know at the beginning of the session.
What Else Do you Do?
-I am involved in many creative pursuits in my life, including building workshops and classes, dance, yoga, meditation, writing and constant learning. I also love to cook and make raw chocolate.
Can we Meet for Tea or for a drink outside of the session?
-If you would like to have a tantric tea date to discuss your session before or after, I am happy to accommodate you. I do request a donation of $100/hour. I do not drink alcohol very often so drinks are not a part of my time with you. Our time on the phone before or after the session is at no charge and generally doesn’t go over 20 minutes. Please respect my time as I respect yours.
What about discretion?
-I am an extremely discreet person and I expect the same from you. If life ever brought us together outside of the session space I would remain discrete and unassuming as I would hope you would as well. I never reveal the details of my clientele. To anyone. Ever.
-Please, take good care of yourself before the session. I am extremely sensitive to smell, so fresh breath and body odor are a plus. I strive to return the same care with you.
-Please arrive with a respectful and caring attitude. I put my heart and soul into my time with you and find it so much easier to do this when I feel a mutual atmosphere of care and respect.
