What Makes Shane Different:
A typical massage can often be not much more than an oiled up “rub down” with toxic chemicals. I certainly do offer (and receive!) massage, it has it’s place. It is beneficial, feels wonderful and it can be more than just rearranging body hair. However, massage is just one aspect of Bodywork, like asanas (poses) are just one aspect of Yoga. Depending on the client’s goals, he or she may be fully clothed. I may use little to no massage creme, but when I do I choose a high quality product with Organic ingredients. I may hold a single position for 5-10 minutes, using anywhere from 5 grams of pressure to 40 pounds of pressure. I may only work a specific area to treat what needs to be treated and leave the rest for another visit. I also give full table time (if you pay for an hour massage - that is what you will receive). Most spas will only give you 45-50 minutes. I may work on muscles and areas that have never been worked before, which I hear often! There are so many ways to achieve a treatment plan, and that may mean leaving any spa-like expectations outside the door.
