Description: Philippa has been a full time massage therapist since 1991, practicing therapeutic massage and stress management/relaxation massage in the same salon in the Park Cities area of Dallas, TX for 16 years before relocating to Salon FX in Richardson, TX in 2008, where she not only does massage therapy, but has been the salon owner since 2005. Her technique is firm, but not painful, and her focus is deep relaxation for stress management and natural pain & anxiety relief. Philippa's ongoing study of advanced bodywork modalities gives her the skills to address many common health issues, such as back, neck & hip pain, headaches, & minor injuries. Philippa has given literally thousands of massages in her long massage therapy career and has developed a high degree of expertise in her field. Whether you need relaxation or require work on a specific area of pain or discomfort, Philippa will develop a treatment plan to meet your needs. You will love Philippa's tranquil & serene treatment room. Relax to soothing music on an excellent sound system, plus the sounds of natural ocean waves and unique lighting. Her sturdy, custom made sationary table has special cushioning that can be adjusted to make sure you are completely comfortable and a cozy, warming table pad for those who tend to get chilled. Her table is even custom designed to provide comfort for advanced pregnancy. (See the Pre-Natal Massage page for more information).
Prior to becoming a massage therapist Philippa had a lifelong background in the medical field. In her 18 years as a Respiratory Therapist, Philippa worked in several major Dallas area hospitals in ICU, ER, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Pediatrics,and Neo-Natal ICU doing both hands on acute and chronic patient care and supervision and management. She also did a stint as a Pharmaceutical Sales Rep for a major Phamaceutical firm in their Cardio-Pulmonary division.
Because of Philippa's medical background, she is especially aware of possible complications and contra-indications to massage. She works with all ages and genders, but has extensive experience with the senior population and their particular health issues, making her an excellent choice for older clients or those with chronic health issues. Your medical care is between you and your doctor, but it is very important to get massage from a massage therapist who will not exacerbate (make worse) any health issues you may have. This is of particular importance in people with osteoporosis, diabetes, taking blood thinning medications, pregnancy, or multiple sclerosis, to name a few. You are in good hands with Philippa Dodson, LMT.
Modest Draping for all Massage
Professional & Ethical
Philippa Dodson, LMT holds to the highest standards of ethics and professionalism. She is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). All health or personal information shared with Philippa is completely confidential. A modest draping procedure is always used with each massage treatment in respect of each client's personal privacy and as a professional standard. Philippa recomends that you relax and enjoy your massage session by closing your eyes, listening to the relaxing music & ocean waves in silence and/or meditation, but welcomes feedback on each client's comfort level, whether it be the room temperature, positioning on the table, depth of massage, any type of discomfort (physical or emotional) or any other issue pertaining to each therapy session. Be aware that giving massage and advanced bodywork is Philippa's profession. You do not need to chat with her or entertain her. Silence during your massage therapy session is recommended. However, if you do want to ask questions or feel more comfortable with a bit of conversation, that is up to each person to decide for themselves.
