Timing and arrival: I provide 30-minute complimentary consultations on top of the regular massage time for first-time appointments. Please arrive on time to allow time to chat about your goals for massage. If you are just looking for relaxation, this allows me some time to get to know your preferences and past experience with massage. If you are looking for specific help with a problem or condition, the assessment time can be used to gather medical history, learn more about your complaints or do motion testing. Depending on what you are looking for, we may or may not use the entire 30 minute assessment time.
Online intake forms: After booking, you will receive another email from MassageBook requesting that you fill out an intake form. It is very helpful for me if you fill this
Location and parking: The office is at 1264 Higuera Street, Suite 102. It's the old, dark yellow, Spanish style building near the intersection of Higuera St. and Johnson Ave. From Johnson, turn onto Higuera (one way) then turn right at the first driveway into the parking lot. Enter the door at the rear of the building under the large, beautiful tree. Once inside, turn left and walk to the end of the hallway to suite 102.
What to wear: If you are hoping to address a specific area of pain or discomfort in your body during the session, please wear or bring active clothes that allow free movement so motion testing can be preformed if needed.
What to expect: After you arrive, for your first session we will spend some time chatting with and doing any relevant assessments to get a feel for what will be most beneficial during your session. We may or may not need to use the full 30 minute assessment time. After we are done talking, I will leave the room for a few minutes to allow you to get on the massage table. More information on how to prepare for a massage and what to expect can be found on the website under the "Prepare" section.
Appointment time: For future appointments (after the first session) please plan to show up 10 minutes before the start time of any session to allow time to talk about any changes and still have a full time on the table.
Cancellation policy: I ask that you give 24-hour cancellation notice. The full amount of the appointment will be charged for non-emergency cancellations given less than 24 hours before the appointment start time.
Payment: Payment is due at the time of service. I accept cash, check or credit cards.
