How Can I Make an Appointment?

To answer any questions or make an appointment you can contact me at (949)240-4954 or healndance@att.net

What can I expect to happen during the first Trager  treatment?

You will fill out an intake form. After we discuss what you want to address in this treatment, you will rest on a padded treatment table as I help you restore your inner balance, effortlessly releasing maladaptive movement patterns, tension and pain while increasing your freedom of movement, flow of energy and sense of well being. We will customize the treatment to your specifics needs. You will be engulfed in sensations of pleasure the entire session; they are part of the therapeutic process. Though I do move your body’s joints, unlike chiropractic, there will be no quick or hard movements. Your feedback is welcome and I will check in with you during the session. If appropriate, you will do guided gentle movements against my resistance. At the end of the treatments you may be taught movements to do at home to help the benefits of the session last.

How long is a treatment?

The typical treatment is 60-90 minutes. I simply work until I feel I’ve gotten as far as we can get that day.

What do I wear?

Unlike massage, you will not have a modesty drape during your a Trager treatment so a swimsuit or underwear is best to wear. Be sure to wear or bring something to be treated in besides pantyhose. To keep your body temperature comfortable, I often use blankets or a light sheet. If you aren’t comfortable being treated in a swimsuit, you can wear loose fitting clothes. However, I can give you my best work if I can feel the body tissue I’m working on.

Do you sell gift certificates?

Yes. They are wonderful way to spoil someone you care about. They are good for up to six months!

What is your Cancellation Policy?

I have a 24 hour cancellation policy. A $50 cancellation fee is charged if you cancel with less than a day’s notice. Your appointment time is held open specifically for you. Other clients who asked for that time were turned away so you could have it.

Do you do any spinal adjustments?

No. Though your vertebrae may adjust during a Trager treatment it is because the soft tissue or movement pattern that misaligned your spine let go. Bones are held in place by soft tissue. If the soft tissue and movement problems are not resolved, even bones put back in place will soon be misaligned again.

Can I work out afterward?

It’s best if you can allow yourself to integrate the session into your movement patterns before a heavy workout. If you feel too spacey after the treatment, it’s safer to rest or go for a walk before driving.

Do you offer any other services besides Trager?

Yes, if the Trager approach is not the best to meet your health needs, I have many other tools to increase radiant well-being. I have many years of experience in theraputic massage. Aston three-dimensional massage and Bertherat structural home study are based on two additional paradigms of structural balance.

I offer other services to support your healthy life style. From an energy viewpoint, as a Chi Nei Tsang practitioner, I teach several forms of meditation: Microcosmic Orbit, Inner Smile and Six Healing Sounds to increase your energy flow and transform stress into energy. 

I also do various types of facials to rejuvenate your skin so you can look as beautiful on the outside as you feel on the inside.

Do You Do Outcall?

I work in my office unless you are homebound or have your own treatment table and can provide a private, quiet environment…no phones, no interruptions by children, pets, etc. An additional driving fee will be charged.

If I’m getting a chiropractic treatment that day, should it be before or after?

Either works well. If you get the Trager treatment first, your adjustments will be so much easier and hold better because the soft tissue and movement problems have been addressed. However, no deep tissue the same day at the chiropractor’s office!Though Trager seems gentle, it is extremely deep. The possibility of being over worked is very real. More is not better.

Getting a Trager treatment after seeing a chiropractor will smooth out any trauma from the adjustment, as well as help the adjustment last by releasing the movement and soft tissue patterns that pull your vertebra out of alignment in the first place.
