Claudia's Massage Philosophy
Claudia customizes each massage for the needs of that individual. While she definitely can accommodate a specific modality request, she finds that customizing each massage usually provides the client with a better result. When she first meets with a client Claudia will have you complete a questionnaire and will discuss your body's needs. This helps her to understand what will help benefit the client's body the most. She encourages clients to communicate with her about the level of pressure and never wants anyone to be uncomfortable. Her goal is for every client to leave the massage feeling relaxed, and with less aches and pains than when they arrived.
"I suffer from quite a bit of low back pain, hip pain, and neck tension. I see Claudia one a month for a massage and it always helps to relieve the pain. I have tried many things through the years to help the issues and Claudia's massage is one of the few things that actually helps me"
