Top Questions

We’re Here for You

If you fall into a "high risk" category age or health-wise, please know that we will be doing the best we can to provide a safe environment, but that there is still a risk in leaving your home. If you feel uneasy about being out and about, and being exposed, please STAY HOME!

 

If you have a fever, cough or any symptoms of being sick, or have been in contact with anyone who has been sick in the past 2 weeks, please, cancel your appointment & STAY HOME!

      

You will need to call or text when you arrive and wait in your car until you receive a text or call to come into the office.

     

You will need to fill out and sign paperwork upon your arrival for each appointment.

    

Face masks will be required for treatment. You must wear one the entire time you are in the facility.  If you do not have one, you will need to purchase one, in order to be treated.

      

Your temperature will be taken when you walk in the door. Hands will need to be washed or sanitized when you come into the office.

 

Cancellation fees will be waived during this time. As always, I appreciate as much notice as possible if you are sick and unable to make your appointment. However, no shows are still unacceptable and will be charged.

What do I wear for my session?

For Therapeutic Assessment and Bodywork, you may wear a loose fitting sweats and T-shirt, pair of shorts or running shorts and a tank top or sports bra.  This allows me to assess with MMT, utilize stretching and movement techniques, as well as postural evaluation during the session.  Because you will be asked to get on and off the table to move and integrate corrections, being in comfortable clothing is beneficial.

What will my first session be like?

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for your first appointment, to fill out a health history form, if you were unable to do so beforehand.  Any current health issues will be discussed, as well as the many factors affecting the way your body is feeling.  There may be additional questions asked and a treatment plan and goals for the session will be developed accordingly.  Postural and movement assessments will be done of certain movements or areas of discomfort.  Breathing patterns will be assessed, as well as manual muscle testing, to reveal any compensation patterns and problematic tissues. Massage techniques as well as stretching and neuromuscular work will be done in order to restore balance.  Self care will be recommended for furthering your healing and pattern improvement.

What happens if I can't make my scheduled appointment?

If you are running late for an appointment, please call.  If you are late for an appointment, please note that depending on time constraints, your therapist may not have the time to provide the full time allotted for your session.  The session must still be paid in full.  If time permits, your therapist will work for as much of the session time as possible.

 

Please note that there is a 24 hour cancellation policy.  We have set aside a specific time for your massage session, please be respectful of that commitment.  It is hard to fill appointment times at the last minute, so please be respectful of our time, and kindly give 24 hour notice.  If there is a chance you are sick or in cases of emergency, the fee will be waived.   If notice is not given or you are a no-show, you will be responsible for paying the full session fee.  If the appointment was made with a gift certificate as payment, the gift certificate will be forfeited.     Thank you!
