Therapeutic Massage Services
Therapeutic massage addresses a range of issues. Whether you’re experiencing limited range of motion, muscle soreness, problems with jaw pain or digestion, or need some help to relax and have more restful sleep, we would be honored to work with you. Sessions may also include some yoga-based stretches, exercises, or self-massage to try at home.
60-minute 5-Session series: $400 (save $25)
90-minute 5-Session series: $550 (save $50)
Please pay when you receive the first of these sessions. These may be shared among families.
Sean and Chrystina have both studied a variety of massage modalities and tend to weave different aspects of their trainings into each session, rather than sticking to one style. We are always mindful of your preferences, so let us know if you have one. We both practice using either a table or a padded mat on the floor. Typically, the floor-based sessions are performed fully clothed.
Office and Event Chair Massage Please contact us directly to arrange. We charge our hourly rate for onsite work. The rate includes setup/breakdown time and scheduled breaks for longer sessions. Travel fee waived for locations within 30 minutes' drive of Hark House in Biddeford.
Tipping Policy We do not accept tips at Hark House.
Cancellation Policy Please give 24 hours' notice to cancel without penalty. Full rate will be billed without 24-hour notice. If you are sick or have another emergency, please give as much notice as possible, and we are happy to give you grace.
What to Expect
Once your appointment is booked, we will send an intake form via email that will help us to understand how best to work with you and where we might focus. Please complete this before your visit to dedicate more time to hands-on work.
Please arrive on time or a few minutes early, especially for your first visit. Sessions will end at the scheduled time and charged the full rate.
Upon arrival, we will use your intake form and any other concerns or needs you have as basis for discussion about our treatment plan. Once we've completed the brief interview, the therapist will leave the room to allow time for you to get settled into the table under the sheet. During your treatment, you will remain covered by the sheet (and blanket if necessary) during the session, except for the body part (e.g. leg or arm) we are working on, so you may undress to your comfort level.
We will check in with you on pressure, temperature, comfort, and also expect that you'll let us know if you'd like more or less pressure or if you're in any way uncomfortable so that we can remedy that.
We also offer fully-clothed sessions if that is your preference. In that case, it is useful to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing or a tank top and shorts if you'd like more myofascial work done. Thai and Shiatsu massage are traditionally practiced clothed on a mat on the floor, for example.
We accept cash, check, credit cards. $30 fee for each dishonored check.
