"DOSE Therapy"™

"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 mentally and physically stressed. FOR WOMEN ONLY!

"'DOSE Therapy'™ will give you the biggest hit of Feel Good, without the use of drugs"™

DOSE is an acronym for Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin, and Endorphin - 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), and 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 very well in the presence of another male, and will shut down the release of these chemicals, resulting in a failure of the treatment.

NOTE: The treatment is received standing up, clothed. The first 60% of the treatment is performed is performed on the body's side and back lines. 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. Permission and a barrier are legal requirements for the front lines; clothing is a requirement for this treatment because draping is not practical.
