Policies and Procedures

 

 

Groupon:

I do not see Groupon clients before 10 am or after 9 pm.

If you have not yet purchased the voucher, but plan to, please contact me first. My phone number is 850-293-3578.

Groupon vouchers are for new clients only. If you are an existing client, even if you have only seen me once, and purchase a voucher, it will not be honored. Groupon can give you a refund. If you would like to take advantage of my discounts, please see below.

Cancellation Policy:

With the exception of emergencies, please give a 24 hour notice, if you must cancel. Failure to give notice will result in a $25 fee charged when the session is rescheduled. You must provide a credit card for this before rescheduling. One no call/no show may result in the forfeiture of future scheduling privileges. If you have a no call/no show, please contact me directly via text before rescheduling. The $25 fee applies to no call/no shows as well.

Draping and Dress:

Some clients prefer to be nude, others keep on their underwear during the session. I do not have a preference. You should choose whatever you will be most comfortable with. I will never shame or judge you. We are all on our own self-care journeys. I practice industry standard draping.

Oils Used:

I primarily use coconut oil. If you have another oil or lotion you prefer, please bring it and I will be glad to use it. 

Music:

I will play music that I enjoy during our session (piano music, indie folk, and soft postrock music). If you have a preference for a different style of music, I am happy to oblige.

Modalities:

I don’t do “deep” or “Swedish” massages. Those terms mean different things to everyone. I will use my experience, intuition, and the information you give me to provide the best massage experience for you.

Self Care:

Stretch, drink water, and move your body! Regular massage is a wonderful way to take care of your body, but it must be coupled with responsible exercise and food/fluid intake. I will often recommend certain stretches and exercises, but please talk to your doctor before attempting them.

Tipping and Payment:

Tipping is standard in the massage industry. I accept cash (preferred), all credit cards, and checks for payments and tips. %15 of the full regular price is customary for good service. %20 or higher for exceptional service. My prices are never up for negotiation or haggling. If you would like to see me at a discounted rate, please take advantage of my packages and monthly subscriptions.

Hair:

Shave or don't shave, it doesn't matter to me! If you have long hair please put it up or in a ponytail while you are face down so that it does not get in the way of your shoulders and neck. You may take it down once you turn over to your back.

Refusal of Service:

I have the right to refuse service before, during, or after your treatment for any reason without a refund.

Packages and Subscriptions:

A package of three one hour sessions is $150. That saves you $45.

A package of three ninety minute sessions is $225; also a $45 savings.

My monthly subscription program gives you two one hour sessions a month and costs $80. That saves you $50.

My one hour a month subscription is $50. That saves you $15.

Odds and Ends:

Please remove all jewelry with the exception of small earrings.

It is common for a massage therapist to not talk much during the massage. It is my goal to do the best job I can do for you undistracted. However, if you wish to chat, I will!

At the end of the massage please get dressed and meet me in the main room where we will schedule your next visit and take care of the payment.

If at any time during the session you feel uncomfortable, please make me aware immediately.

There is a shower at the massage suite you can use before or after our session should you choose to. Please let me know prior to your appointment if you wish to utilize the shower.

Please practice common hygiene prior to your appointment. 

Please do not wear heavy perfumes or scents as I am highly sensitive to such things.

Thank you!
