“Is it best to take a shower before getting a massage?”

My answer is always yes if you meet the criteria:

If you do any type of construction, outside work or exercise you will need to take a shower before seeing a massage therapist. Debris such as dirt clings to the skin and may scratch you when massage strokes are applied. A hot bath or shower will open up pores, relax and help loosen the fascia and muscles. Exfoliating the skin with a cotton washcloth, loofah or Agate cloth will help increase circulation while removing dead skin cells.

I have no shower facilities at my office so you will need to take one before seeing me. 

For the ladies:

“I’m a bit embarrassed but I haven’t shaved my legs. Is it ok to still schedule my appointment for a massage?

As I always stress never allow hair stubble (hairy legs) deter you from getting your regular massage maintenance.  Honestly, it doesn’t matter to me if you shave or not. By not shaving your legs it will never take away from the quality of your massage session.

Have a question about massage therapy?

If you have any massage related questions, please feel free to ask them and I will answer them.

For new clients that are redeeming gift certificates:

Please book your appointment at least 24 hours in advanced. Sometimes same day service is not available for new clients due to my schedule. Not only do I provide office appointment but I perform out call and doula services too.

My schedule is on a first come first served basis. You may call the office at anytime. If I have same day availability I can place you on the schedule.

By scheduling your appointment ahead of time, it ensures you have that time scheduled especially for you. It is your time to relax and enjoy your massage. I send out reminders via email and by text a day before your scheduled session. To ensure you do not miss your allotted time please put it on your calendar. By arriving a ten minutes early this helps reduce rushing and stress. This time is set aside to become familiar with me. This time is necessary to fill out paper work before the session begins. If you need a little extra time on paper work, you may go to my web site to find the forms. Your time begins on the hour you requested. Depending on my schedule late arrivals may have time deducted from their appointment time.

Thank you for understanding.
