FAQ

  • How do I prepare for my massage?
    Please arrive on time for your appointment. so we can take full advantage of the time we have together. Knock on the door when you arrive. Please come to your session well showered and clean. Make sure to drink as much water as you can for up to 2 days before your appointment. Do not come to your massage under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Cover any fresh or recovering wounds with a bandage. Try not to rush getting to your appointment. Stay as relaxed as possible before, during, and after.
  • What is involved in the intake process?
    Upon first meeting, you will come to my space, and we will sit down to talk about your body. You will fill out an intake form that gives me important information on where you’re at on a physical, mental, and spiritual level so I can cater our appointments to your needs. I may have you go through a few exercises so I can get a visual of how your body is functioning. Before the massage, I will step out of the room to wash my hands, allow you to undress to your comfort level, and get under the sheet. I will knock before entering the room, start some relaxing music, make sure you’re comfortable, and begin our session. During the massage, I will use a base oil of sunflower that I sometimes mix with essential oils (things such as lavender ylang-ylang, geranium, juniper) for your betterment. These oils are pure, organic, and safe unless, of course, you have specified allergies. I am always open to your feedback throughout the massage, as it is much better for you to speak up so you can get what your body needs. After the appointment, I’ll step out of the room and allow you to take your time to let the work integrate. I will be waiting outside the door with some water for you. We will sit down with each other for a few minutes, allowing you to drink some water and me to give any feedback on things I noticed, stretches that might help your body and other suggestions that might help you in your process of health in all aspects of the word. After you feel integrated, I’ll send you on your way in hopes we’ll see one another again.
  • What are your policies?
    If cancellation occurs without at least 24 hour advanced notice, full payment will be charged to the person with whom the session was scheduled. If you come late to your session, we will do the best work we can within the time slot you were scheduled for. If you are over 30 minutes late and do not let me know you’re on your way, the session will be cancelled and payment will be due in full.
  • What form of payment will you accept?
    I accept payment in (preferred) cash, check, Venmo, PayPal, or Credit Card.
  • How much clothing am I supposed to remove?
    You get undressed to your comfort level. Yes, some areas might be more difficult to access or warm up if there is clothing in the way, and it’s far more important that you feel safe, comfortable, and at ease. I work with bodies, naked or otherwise, daily. I practice tight sheeting techniques, so you don’t feel exposed. I maintain a professional and safe environment for your well-being.
  • Are the sessions confidential?
    Yes, completely! Anything you share with me will be kept private. There are a few outstanding circumstances where I may share your information with another colleague to enhance your experience and serve you better. If you share that you are planning on hurting yourself or someone else, by law, I’m obligated to report it.
  • Do you offer discounts/trades?
    It’s important to me that my work maintains accessibility. There are trade possibilities, depending on what you’d like to trade. Discounts are always a discussion, and I’m open to having those discussions.
  • Do you do outcalls?
    No.
