Enjoy a relaxing massage from the convenience and comfort of your own home.
My name is Katrina Corral and I fell in love with massage therapy in my late teen years. I had several people in my life who suffered from migraines and they would get relief from their pain when I would work out their neck and head muscles. This started my love and passion for helping people who are in pain. It quickly became a hobby and then I made the decision to make it a career.
In 2013, I went to the Nevada School of Massage Therapy in Las Vegas, NV. During this time not only did I learn the skills needed to become a awesome massage therapist, but my love and passion grew for helping people through the power of touch.
After I completed an internship and graduated, I started my massage career as a mobile therapist in Bullhead City, AZ. In 2014 I moved to Tempe, where I went to work at a chiropractic clinic. This is where I honed in my therapeutic massage skills and advanced my training.
Today, I am back as a mobile therapist, I visit people in the comfort of their own homes to help them have a healthy lifestyle when it is convenient for them.

I customize each session to fit the individual needs of each of my client’s, utilizing the tools I have been taught over the years.
A general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder.
Swedish massage is the most common type of massage.
Deep tissue massage and trigger point (which focuses on myofascial trigger points, muscle "knots") is highly effective in releasing chronic muscle tension and stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries.
I will arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time, and leave within 15 minutes after the session. This will allow set up/tear down time along with health history review.
An area in your home that can be private with the least amount of distractions and interruptions as possible. Your comfort and ability to sink into relaxation is my top priority.
There will be a health history form to complete before your first visit. We will review this together to make sure that your session will be what you want and is safe and effective for your needs.
What you requested last time may be different in another and that is ok. Please do not be afraid to request changing to focus areas if needed. We will go over what you want to get out of each session to ensure your session is effective for your needs.
Most people completely undress for a full body massage, but that is up to you. You may choose to wear your underwear. I will step out and give you privacy to undress and have you lie down underneath the sheet on the table. You will be covered with a sheet.
This is known as “draping” and is required for all sessions. I will only uncover the part of your body being worked on.
The genitals (women and men) and chest (women and men) will not be uncovered. If the abdomen is being requested, a second towel or sheet will be used to cover the chest so the main sheet or towel can be moved to expose the abdomen.
NO SEXUAL SOLICITATING IS ALLOWED EVER AND WILL RESULT IN THE END OF THE SESSION IMMEDIATELY!!! CLIENT WILL STILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT OF THE FULL SESSION.
This depends on the type of massage and the depth of the strokes. A light, relaxing massage that doesn't probe very deep into the muscles, shouldn't hurt. With that being said, there is a 'feels good' hurt and an 'ouch, stop it' hurt. A good massage, even a really deep tissue massage, should always stay in the 'feels good' hurt range.
Pain can be an indication that the muscle is possibly injured or inflamed and pressure should be adjusted. Also, pain can cause you to tighten up and negate the relaxing effects of the massage. The most effective and deepest massage always works with your body's natural response, not against it.
It varies from person to person. Based upon what is found during your session I would make a recommendation.
Typical maintenance and relaxation recommendation is about every 3 to 6 weeks.
More specific conditions may require more frequent sessions at first and taper down to a maintenance schedule.
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience a significant decrease or freedom from long-term aches and pains. Many feel a little slowed down for a short period and then notice an increase of energy, heightened awareness and increased productivity which can last for days.
If you received a deep massage, you may be slightly sore the next day - much like a good workout at the gym. Sometimes a hot shower, or a soak in the tub with Epson salt can ease this soreness.
After your session you should increase your water intake a bit. Just a glass or two more than normal is usually fine. This helps keep your body's tissues hydrated and healthy.
In my opinion there are few conditions which would prevent you from enjoying massage. You should not book a massage if you have a fever, cold/flu, or contagious skin infection.
There are many other conditions in which your therapist may need to adapt his/her techniques (i.e. arthritis or osteoporosis) or avoid an area completely (i.e. cuts or burns). With some conditions it is a good idea to get an approval from your physician before you receive massage (cancer, certain heart conditions, pregnancy). This doesn't mean you can't get massage. But it’s always better to err on the side of caution.
Please discuss any health concerns with me at any time.
Sometimes it happens. Yet, most men avoid massage for fear this will happen to them. Or, they get a massage but are unable to relax because of this fear. But there is no reason to be embarrassed
Sometimes men get an erection during a non-sexual, therapeutic, full body massage. Touch administered to any part of the body can activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which can result in a partial or complete erection.
An educated, professional massage therapist understands this and it will not be an issue for him/her. If you are still concerned, I recommend wearing more fitted underwear (briefs or boxer briefs) which provide more support than traditional boxers.
Note: If the therapist feels that the session has turned sexual for the client, male or female, he/she may stop the session to clarify the client's intent, and may decide to end the session immediately.
