Polices

What you can expect from me:

You will receive competent and professional sessions in a safe and clean environment. All sessions will begin and end on time. I will maintain privacy and confidentially at all times. All personal and professional boundaries are always respected. I respect all clients regardless of their age, gender, race, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status, body type, political affiliation, state of health or personal habits.

What to wear and draping:

You will be given a few minutes at the beginning at each session to undress to your level of comfort. Most massages require the use of oils or lotions. During the session the client will be completely covered with a sheet and/or blanket for warmth, modesty and comfort. Only the areas of the body that are being worked on will be uncovered. Genitals are never exposed or massaged. Any further concerns may be discussed with me at any time to determine the proper attire and draping.

Confidentially:

All information shared in a therapeutic space is confidential. If it will be necessary to work with another healthcare provider, I will require written permission in order to proceed. Your information will not be shared without express written permission. HIPAA Compliance.

Sexual conduct:

Therapist will not engage in any sexual conduct and sexual conduct from client will not be tolerated in anyway. If any discussion or actions are done in a provocative manner the session will be terminated immediately and any future sessions will be denied. Session may be ended at any time.

Cancellation:

I understand that sometimes it is necessary to re-schedule appointments, therefore please give at least 24 hours notice prior to canceling and I will gladly reschedule your appointment. Appointments canceled within 12- 24 hours notice will be charged 50% of the service fee, less than 12 hours will be charged the full fee. Missed appointments will be charged in full for all services booked.

Emergency cancellation will be handled on a case by case basis.

Payment methods:

I accept cash, checks, credit or gift certificates. Payment is expected at the time the services are rendered. Direct billing of insurance companies is not provided.
Returned check fee $25 and no further checks accepted.

What to do following a Massage:

During the 24 hours after your massage, drink plenty of water. Massage releases lactic acid and other substances that build up in your body over time and the water helps to cleanse your system of these mild toxins.

– If you haven’t had a massage in some time, you may be slightly sore the next day. This is perfectly normal.

– Please inform if you have a nut allergy as some of the oils/lotions used can contain nut products
