to Expect

Healthy Benefits

Massage  has many healthy benefits. It can help relax muscle tension and pain and to promote healing of injured muscle tissue.  It can also reduce blood pressure and improve circulation.  Massage has also been known to improve concentration, promote restful sleep and to reduce fatigue, stress and anxiety.
It can create a sense of overall Wellness!

Please Note: If You are ill or sick with a contagious illness such as a cold, flu, sinus infection, stomach virus etc. contact me prior to your appointment and we can reschedule for another time when you are feeling better.  Massage while you are ill will not make you feel better and will not speed up your recovery.  You also run the risk of infecting my other clients or me.    (Being self employed, I don't have paid sick leave)

 I take the time to get to know you, to find out what you want out of  your experience.  This isn't the cookie cutter, assembly line massage that the big box massage chains give. It is individual attention. You are a unique individual and more than just a customer. Take the time to escape the world in a relaxing comfortable room with soft lights, soothing music and a Calming States Massage.  In that session you will be free from life’s demands. 

Relaxing Environment
Your session will take place in a warm, clean and

comfortable room.There will be soft music playing to

help you relax.

Respectful Privacy
Traditionally massage is performed with the client unclothed. You may decide what amount of clothing you will wear for your own comfort. The therapist will step out of the room while you undress and relax on the table, where you will then cover yourself with fresh clean linens. All clients will be draped at all times during their massage. Only the area being worked on will be uncovered, and then it will covered again when finished.  You will never be touched on or near the genitals or breasts.

Office Policies
Please, No minors unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. 
(A parent or legal guardian will be required to be present during any session)

Cancellation Policy

I understand that unanticipated events happen occasionally in everyone’s life. To be effective and fair to all clients,  the following policies are honored:24 hour advance notice is required when cancelling an appointment. This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule that appointment time. If you are unable to give us 24 hours advance notice you may be charged the full amount of your appointment. Payment of this fee may be required prior to your next scheduled appointment. 

Late Arrivals
If you arrive late, your session may be shortened in order to accommodate others  clients whose appointments follow yours. Depending upon how late you arrive, it will then be determined if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment.  Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the “full” session fee.  Out of respect and consideration to your therapist and other clients, please plan accordingly and be on time.

Respectful Privacy
Please note: All clients will be draped at all times during their massage.  Only the area being worked on will be uncovered and then it will covered again when finished.  You will never be touched on or near the genitals or breasts.Any inappropriate behavior or action by the client will result in immediate termination of the session.
I do not offer any sensual or erotic services.  

Judgement Free
 I often have people apologize for their weight, unshaven legs, body hair etc. Please do not worry about any of those types of things.  Your session is completely judgment free. Everyone is unique. Don't ever let body image fears stop you from experiencing something that is so beneficial to you!

Personalized Session
We will discuss prior to your session the best approach.  Typically a full body massage will include face, scalp, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, back and abdomen. You may request concentration on specific areas, or that an area not be worked on.  Also the amount of pressure will be discussedprior to the massage.  Do not be afraid to let me know if at any time whether more or less pressure is needed. Your session is about you!

Professional Service

Soothing Oils or Lotions
A lotion or oil will be used which will allow your muscles to be worked on without causing excessive friction or irritation to the skin.  If you have skin sensitivity or allergies, please discuss this prior to the massage or please feel free to bring your own product if a specific lotion or oil is needed.
