FAQ

How is Ku Nye massage different?

Ku Nye penetrates through all the systems of the body to restore balance and pacify the wind humor. In Tibetan Medicine, the wind element is responsible for imbalance in the body. It is an ancient technique that is still practiced by Tibetan doctors today.

Will it hurt?

It is my opinion that massage therapy should not be so uncomfortable that the client is in pain. Sometimes deep pressure can be beneficial in relieving tension but sometimes it is just too much. I will check in with you about the pressure and I also appreciate feedback. If pressure needs to be adjusted during your session please let me know!

Do I have to take my clothes off?

In this technique I use massage lotion and essential oils, so yes, clothing should be removed for optimal access to the treatment. Underwear can be left on. I use sheets to drape areas that are not being worked on and also to keep you warm.

What if I fall asleep?

That’s ok! If you can fall asleep during a massage and get even more rest that is absolutely wonderful. Many of my clients do fall asleep during the massage and I take it as the ultimate compliment.

Do you do prenatal massage?

Yes I do! Ku Nye is a wonderful technique to receive during pregnancy because it helps restore the nervous system. We will use pillows in a sideline position to keep pressure off of your growing belly.

 

What are the benefits of CBD oil?

CBD is cannabidiol, an extract that comes from Cannabis plants. CBD has been shown to decrease chronic and acute pain in many people. I use CBD oil sourced from Vermont grown hemp. There are no psychoactive side affects from hemp sourced CBD because there is no measurable amount of THC.
