- Loyalty Rates apply ONLY to 50-Minute and 80-Minute sessions.
- Loyalty Rates can ONLY be used for TWO sessions per calendar month. Additional appointments during said time frame will be charged at the Current Rate regardless of Loyalty status.
A Standing Appointment is a regularly repeating appointment that is scheduled on the same day and/or time at regular intervals (Saturdays at 10:00am every 2 weeks, 4 weeks, etc.) for the Calendar Year.

- Please be sure to visit the restroom prior to appointment time so as not to lose any valuable massage time answering Nature’s call
- Please be sure to shower first if you have been working out, hiking or sweating outside all day. Massaging dirt back into your skin does little to help flush and release toxins from the body.
- If you are pregnant, please let me know at the time of scheduling. If you are in your 3rd Trimester, you must have written permission from your doctor.
- If you are undergoing chemotherapy, rehabilitation therapy, have recently undergone surgery or incurred an injury, or have recently been involved in an automobile accident -- PLEASE CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE SCHEDULING. You may also be asked to provide written permission from your attending physician.
- Massage dehydrates the body; therefore, it is important to drink plenty of water before and after your session.
- After a massage, you may feel dizzy, nauseous and/or sluggish. You may develop a headache or feel fatigued. It is important to consume plenty of water post-massage in order to flush your system and hydrate your tissues and cells.
- After receiving massage, your muscles may be sore. There may even be some mild bruising. In such cases, it is helpful to ice sore areas to reduce pain and perform mild stretching to increase blood flow. This will help mitigate second-day soreness which is often worse than the first day after a deep tissue or trigger point treatment.
