S.T.M. at the Cottage
Welcome to the Durham Cottage*
*The Durham Cottage location is reserved for my Legacy Clients and their direct referrals.
If you are not a Legacy Client (which is someone who began treatment at S.T.M. Inc. between 2014 and 2018) or a direct referral from a Legacy client,
please book your appointment at one of my other public locations.
Thank you for being here and looking for wellness and health.
If you have been referred by one of my Legacy clients, please scroll down and preview your treatment selections and result expectations and more!
Out of my deepest respects for you, I will retain my mask throughout your treatment.
I ask that in the hallways of the Cottage, that you wear your mask, however, once you are in the treatment room, feel free to remove your mask if that is most comfortable.
Cleaning measures have always been in place, even before COVID-19. Following are the standard list of session by session protocols:
Ozone/ Ionizer and HEPA air purified circulation

And what you are wanting to aim for in your treatment. (Relief, range of motion, relaxation, etc.)
Prior to your appointment you will be sent a secure, online intake form. Allow for 5 - 15 minutes to complete. Answer, honestly and with as much relative details as possible.

Upon your arrival, you will drive onto a large horse shoe driveway.
Please park on the driveway that is closest to the white railed porch entrance to the Cottage.
Once you are parked, proceed to walk to the front porch, I will meet you at the front door and welcome you in.
I will direct you to where the restroom is as we make our way to the treatment room.
Walk to the white porch, to access the front door.
After we have decided on our treatment plan (goals) for that session. I will step out so that you can undress to your comfort level for your session, as per your treatment plan.
The bathroom can be accessed at any time, preferably before or after the session.
In your session, my goal is to give you a place to rejuvenate your senses and support your optimal muscular conditions.
So, as it is your session, if you love to talk, I love to listen. If you have questions about what I'm doing, don't hesitate to ask, for I love to educate. And if there is anything I can do to make you more comfortable, please let me know what that is.
I want to create a space that eases your senses and provides support and comfort.
If you love to talk, and ask questions, feel free to do so.
Or notice a modification would make you more comfortable, do not hesitate to tell me.
When your treatment time has come to an end. I will tap my singing bowl to ease you back into consciousness. I will let you know that our treatment time is complete and that once you re-dress, please open the door for me and I will enter the room, so that we can talk about how you are feeling.
Upon my re-entering we will reconnect with the goals we set, your feelings about the treatment and then go over my observations, stretches that I recommend and steps moving forward.

Treatments and the passion behind the practice
Your muscles can be the best they can be, as long as you are willing to work toward your goal with me.
We will work together toward your goals. In your treatment sessions we will unlock, re-conduct and relax your muscles as much as your body allows in the time you have chosen. And then at home as you gradually incorporate new body postures you will begin to maintain your results.
