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 are charged the full rate.
Upon arrival, after handwashing and temperature checks, 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), 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. Please let us know before your appointment that you'd prefer this so that we can set up the room appropriately.
Our practice is strictly non-sexual.
We accept cash, check, credit cards. $30 fee for each dishonored check.
A 60 minute session is usually long enough to address the whole body and one or two areas of detailed attention.
A 90-minute session is usually long enough to address the whole body and two to three areas of detailed attention.
60-minute 5-Session series: $400 (save $25)
90-minute 5-Session series: $550 (save $50)
The effects of massage are cumulative. As one area of the body releases, this allows us to work on new details. Purchasing a series holds you accountable to your own well-being, saves you some money, and makes arrival and departure quick and easy. Please pay when you receive the first of these sessions (or before).
