Frequently Asked Questions

Are you covered by health insurance?

Yes! As a Licensed Massage Therapist, my treatments are covered by most extended healthcare insurance policies. I do not bill your insurance, however. You pay me directly and I provide an itemized receipt at your request that you may submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. Please note: You are responsible for obtaining the details of your insurance plan. In most cases you will be required to have an order/prescription for massage therapy from your doctor.


What are my payment options?

I accept payment by cash, debit, VISA, MasterCard, and American Express. I also accept payment by card for FHA's and HSA's, but please check with your carrier about coverage for massage therapy.


Do you sell gift certificates?

I sure do! Click here


Do you sell packages?

Package and membership information can be found right here


Is your space accessible?

Yes. There is accessible parking available, and my office is located on the main level of the building. 


Do I have to take my clothes off?

With the exception of Energy Therapy and Foot Reflexology, you will need to disrobe to your comfort level (most undress to their underpants, but your birthday suit is acceptable as well). You will be draped for modesty with a sheet and blanket for comfort and only the areas that are being worked on will be exposed. I always adhere to the state requirements for property draping. 


What kind of oil do you use?

I use fractionated (liquid) organic coconut oil and unscented massage lotion, free of paraben preservatives or propylene glycol.


Do you do prenatal massage?

I do not currently provide prenatal massage therapy. However, Foot Reflexology and Energy Therapy are great for moms-to-be!


Do you do deep tissue massage?

"Deep Tissue" is a massage modality that focuses on releasing muscular restriction and tension in deeper layers of muscles within the body, beneath the superficial muscles. Knowledge of the muscles' directions, layers and tendon attachments is required to properly access the deeper problem areas. When deep tissue is required, it's a therapist's patience and focus--not physical force--that allows for access to these layers. Now that I've cleared up that common misconception, YES! I do provide deep tissue massage. However, if you are looking to be steam-rolled and have a "no pain, no gain" mentality, this is not the right place for you.


Do you work with people who have cancer?

I certainly do. I completed certification in Oncology Massage Therapy over a decade ago. I also have training and experience working to release scar tissue from mastectomies and amputations. For the comfort of women in particular, my massage table is equipped with breast recesses so there is less pressure on your chest while lying face-down.


Should I pay a tip?

Only if you insist! All pricing is inclusive and there is no obligation to pay extra for gratuity.


I'm sick. Should I keep my appointment?

If you feel sick, you MUST cancel your appointment, especially if you suspect a fever. Your massage will be safer and more enjoyable once you feel better. Please note the 24-hour cancellation policy still applies in the event of illness or emergency.


Do you accept walk-ins?

I do not. I typically book out several weeks in advance, so it is imperative that you have an appointment scheduled prior to your visit. You may do so right here.


I'm self-conscious about [ _________]   (fill in the blank) ...

I've been doing this for 15 years. I've seen it all before. Relax. Take a breath. You're beautiful. :)
