"DOSE Therapy"™

"'DOSE Therapy'™ Will Give You the Biggest Hit of Feel Good, Without the Use of Drugs!"™

"DOSE Therapy"™ is a modality that I created based on a pain relief technique I learned for women in labor. I developed this for a fellow massage therapist who was constantly feeling physically, spiritually, and mentally stressed and in pain. FOR WOMEN 18+ ONLY!

DOSE is an acronym for Dopamine (increases our ability to feel pleasure), Oxytocin (increases our ability and desire to bond), Serotonin (contributes to feelings of well-being and happiness, and aids relaxation), and Endorphin (reduces pain; increases pleasure) - neuro-chemicals which this modality can release in large quantities.

The key to the treatment is Attitude - being open to the treatment and the feelings you will experience. As an example, when I did a very abbreviated treatment for a co-worker (without informing her what she should expect), she didn't understand what was happening, and her attitude shut down the experience. However, when I did a simple, yet incomplete treatment for the aforementioned massage therapist (who was sitting on a treatment table), to whom I first gave the particulars, her posture straightened up, she got bug-eyed, and she got a very big smile. This is not a placebo effect, but it very much depends on Attitude.

This treatment is only offered to women (18 years old minimum). Their psyche can better handle the feelings that are brought forth in the presence of a male therapist, and separate those feelings from him. A male's psyche cannot handle such feelings as well in the presence of another male, and will shut down the release of these neuro-chemicals, resulting in a failure of the treatment.

NOTE: The treatment is received standing up, partially clothed. The first 60% of the treatment is performed is performed on the body's side and back lines. The remaining 40% of the treatment is performed on the body's front lines, and because the techniques pass close to or over the breasts, explicit permission must be given to do so - clothing provides barrier for the nipples. In keeping with Massage Therapist Association Alberta requirements, explicit permission and a barrier are legal requirements for the front lines; clothing (bra and panties) is a requirement for this treatment because draping is not practical. You can stop the treatment at any point should you feel uncomfortable or that you may over-DOSE.

This treatment is non-sexual. Regardless of the part of the body being touched, the exact same techniques, pressure, and speed are used. The routine is highly formalized to ensure it is non-sexual. It starts with the least sensitive body lines and ends with the most sensitive body lines.

This treatment may be offered or requested as part of a Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy (Extended)™ or UltiMAT(E)™ session and will only be given at my discretion.
