    What to expect

    Your Appointment

    Please always plan to arrive 5-10 minutes early. The start time of your appointment is when you should be ON the massage table. If you arrive late, I can’t guarantee the full time as I often have clients back to back.

    If you are arriving for your first appointment, please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out a brief health history form and sign the Client Bill of Rights. The information you provide will be kept confidential. After filling out the proper paperwork, I will do a verbal intake in which we can discuss what your goals are for this session, as well as any other treatments, and address any questions or concerns.

    You will then be given privacy to undress to your comfort level and get situated under the sheets. You will remain securely covered at all times and only the area of the body being worked on will be undraped. I always strive to provide a professional, safe, and private environment for your bodywork sessions.

    During Your Session

    You are in control. Soft music will be played and the lights will be kept at a low level. If you want the music or lights adjusted, please just let me know. I cycle through various mellow-mood music but you are welcomed to make requests or bring your own.

    You can also let me know if you’d like more or less pressure at any time. When you have muscle damage in certain areas, you may feel pain as I work on it that sometimes radiates to other areas of the body. This is normal, often people say it “hurts in a good way.” However, if you ever feel discomfort, or if it gets to be too much, let me know as too much pain can then make the massage ineffective.

    After the Massage

    Some soreness the next day may be normal, particularly from deep tissue/therapeutic work. Some people also may experience a bit of nausea. My advice is drink a lot of water, tea, and focus on taking it easy for the day.

    I always say to treat a therapeutic massage like a workout; you wouldn’t necessarily do two high-intensity workouts in one day (or you shouldn’t, anyway). You need to give your muscles time to recuperate after each workout, so let your muscles recover from your massage as well.

    Salt baths, hot tubs, or heating pads can provide some relief, as well as products like Deep Blue, Biofreeze.

    Client Policies


    I require 24 hours notice for any and all cancellations. If a cancellation is made in less than 24-hours, you are responsible for the full price of the service unless the spot is filled. I do sometimes have a waitlist, so the earlier I know, the better! You can also send someone else in your place, if you have a friend, family member, or partner who likes massage. I liken this policy to buying a concert ticket: If you buy a ticket ahead of time and can’t go day of the show, the band and venue don’t take the hit. That ticket is your responsibility to get rid of (although I can help in my case if needed). This business is my livelihood so please respect my time!


    Payment is due at the time of service, unless other arrangements have been agreed upon prior to your appointment. I accept credit cards, cash, or personal check. A 25% fee will be required for any bounced checks.


    Insurance does not generally cover massage, except in the case of car accidents and personal injury. I can do Motor Vehicle Accident claims, (also known as PIP) as well as Personal Injury claims as well. However, for massage to be covered, you will need a referral from your chiropractor, physical therapist, or medical doctor. Please contact me with questions regarding this.

    *Any pre-paid packages, gift certificates, or other pre-paid sessions are non-refundable.


    While most insurance plans do not cover massage therapy, I can exempt you from sales tax if you have a referral from your licensed healthcare practitioner who recommends massage therapy as part of your treatment, or deems it medically necessary. Please reach out to me directly if you have questions on this.
