What to Expect
On your first visit you will be asked to complete informational forms to help assess your starting point and what your expectations are from working with me. Upon completing your initial consultation, recommendations will be made to help us determine if we are a good fit to work together to achieve your desired outcome.
For clients receiving bodywork you may or may not be required to disrobe to your level of comfort depending on the type of bodywork being received. You will make yourself comfortable on a massage table that has been prepared with sheets and a blanket if needed for your total comfort. You will be instructed to communicate with your service provider if you experience any discomfort or feel you need additional work in a particular area. This is an important part of your service to achieve the maximum results.
After your service has been completed it is not unusual to feel a little light-headed or “woozy” as you are experiencing increased circulation and relaxation. Upon completing your session it is important for you to remember to drink plenty of water just as you would if you had just finished a workout. This helps to cleanse your system and re-hydrate your body as the increased circulation could encourage an increase in eliminations from your body for a brief time. This is normal and a good response.
In the event that you experience any soreness or discomfort within the next 24 hours of your massage this is not a bad reaction but your body’s way of telling you that you really needed the service and progress was made. In cases where the client is rather inactive or is very toxic this is not unusual. Should you experience discomfort a warm detox soak is always helpful and a follow up body treatment within the following 3 days is highly recommended.
Always with any concerns following a service you should feel free to call your service provider to answer your concerns.

If you have not prepaid your appointment a deposit equal to 1/2 the fee of the service will be required to reserve your appointment
We understand that unanticipated events happen occasionally in everyone’s life. Business meetings, project deadlines, flight delays, car problems, snowstorms, and illness are just a few reasons why one might consider canceling an appointment. In our desire to be effective and fair to all of our clients and out of consideration for our therapists’ time, we have adopted the following policies:
Because your appointment time has been saved especially for you, a 4 hour advance notice is required when cancelling an appointment. This allows the opportunity for someone who may be waiting for an appointment to schedule.
• If you fail to give a 4 hour advance notice you will be charged a “no show/late cancellation fee” equal to 1/2 the amount of your missed appointment. This amount must be paid prior to your next scheduled appointment.
Anyone who either forgets or consciously chooses to forgo their appointment for
whatever reason will be considered a “no-show”. They will be charged for their “missed” appointment and future service will be denied until payment is made.
Appointment times have been arranged specifically for you. If you arrive late your
session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow
yours. Depending upon how late you arrive, your therapist will then determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of the length of the treatment received, you will be responsible for the “full” session.
Out of respect and consideration to your therapist and other customers,
please plan accordingly to be on time.
