Why Massage, and other Frequently Asked Questions

Why get a massage?

Massage is a wonderful way to increase circulation, promote relaxation, and reduce stress.  It can also help you rehabilitate from injury.  Regular massage helps you maintain mobility in your joints and ease of movement in your body.

How much does your massage cost?

Please click Service Menu to see full descriptions and prices for all of my massage and yoga services.  You can also click Package Rates to see discounted rates for packages.

Do I take off all of my clothes?

Many people do, but you should disrobe to your level of comfort. At all times you will be covered with a sheet and blanket, and only the area being worked on will be uncovered. I can regulate the temperature in the room, so if you get warm or cool, please let me know, and I can adjust the temperature on the thermostat or turn the heat on the table.

How often should I get massage?

It really depends on your needs for receiving massage.  Many people experience lasting relaxation and stress relief from weekly or monthly massage, but your personal budget and schedule can help you decide the best frequency for you.

What is your cancellation policy?

I appreciate a phone call or email at least 24 hours in advance of the appointment for no fee to be assessed. Within 24 hours, a cancellation fee of $20 is assessed. However, I encourage people to phone in the case of illness, even if it is within 24 hours, and no fee will be assessed, as I do not massage contagious clients.

Do you sell gift certificates?

Yes! In any amount. The most commonly purchased gift certificate options are on my Store page.  Other amounts can be obtained by calling or emailing me, or purchasing your gift certificate at my office.  If you have any questions at all, please let me know! 573-639-9303.
