FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new client?

I can send you my intake form either via e-mail, or you can fill out a paper form before we start your session.

We'll spend a few minutes getting acquainted with your hoop; I'll guide you through stretches, that help to warm up your tissues before the session, as well as gives you an opportunity to run a diagnostic, and for us both to get an idea of your current range of motion.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I initially trained (2002) at the Phoenix School of Holistic Health, in Houston, TX; and have continued my massage education over the last decade and half.

I recently (2016) completed the Advanced Program (over 200 hrs) at the Lauterstein-Conway School of Massage; and added Deep Massage (Lauterstein Method), Zero Balancing, Orthopedic Massage, along with Shiatsu and Trigger Point therapy training, to my core of Swedish, gentle Deep Tissue & Myofascial release techniques.

I integrate all the methods, and have an intuitive approach; how you are feeling that day and what you're seeking to accomplish with your session will determine your session, that day.  Every body is different, every day. 


Do you have a standard pricing system? If so, please share the details here.

To encourage folks to share massage, I give discounts for each additional hour, up to 6 hrs/session.

1 hr.......$95

90 min.....$135

2 hrs.....$160 ($80/hr)

3 hrs.....$225 ($75/hr)

4 hrs.....$280 ($70/hr)

5 hrs.....$325 ($65/hr)

6 hrs.....$360 ($60/hr)

Group sessions may be divided into 1 hr/90 min/2 hr increments.

All first time clients receive 20% off their first session, up to 3 hrs. 

Senior citizens and service-oriented employees (if in doubt, ask) always receive 25% off each session, up to 2 hrs/session. 

Chair Massage rates differ.

There is a base travel/set-up fee of $40; in addition to $1/minute for 10-20 minute sessions, with a 2 hr minimum (actual massage time) to book.  4 hour max.

If I visit your office more than once in a week, the base fee is waived.

Regular monthly (recurring) clients enjoy a base fee of $20/session.

First time clients get 50% off the base fee ($20).

(When scheduling the sessions in-office, schedule 3 minutes in between each session to allow for client exchange and chair sanitization.)


How did you get started?

I started massaging my friends at summer camp when I was 11 years old.

After much encouragement to follow massage as I career path, I decided to follow it, thinking that it would be a way to support myself while i became a singer. 

A decade and a half later, massage won out as my true passion. 

I still sing and write songs; but I don't feel the need to share my skills in that way.

I prefer to be of service as a massage therapist, because it's rewarding to help other people feel better, and support their wellness journeys in taking care of themselves.

My next area of study will be aquatic massage.


What types of customers have you worked with?

From babies to the elderly, and everyone in between. 

My preference is to work on folks who appreciate gentle therapy, that doesn't require recovery. 

My approach addresses your nervous system, relieving tension where it starts: your brain.

Once your body acknowledges that it is safe, your muscles disengage; I can then more easily find adhesions and address pertinent areas, and work deep into your tissues without forcing my way in.

The results are deep relaxation, increased range of motion, and minimal to no soreness post-session.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently visited my Grandmother out of state; she now lives in an independent living facility for the elderly.

I took her two mini-hoops to play with, and a sarong, for water exercises.  

She showed me a thing or two! 

I so very much loved her facial expressions as she delighted in the movement of the sarong in the water, and moving it with the hoops.

We water danced together. 

What a precious gift.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a professional in your area of expertise?

Absolutely love the work your therapist provides for you.

If you don't, then look for another therapist. 

I prefer to work on clients who love the work I do; it's rewarding for both of us. 

If a client isn't satisfied with the work I do, neither am I.

Over the years I've learned that I'm better off specializing in what I do best, rather than trying to adapt to every different persons varying needs and requests.

The clients who love what I do see me every month, maybe more, if they can afford it. 

And I love seeing them, too. 

If you don't love your massage therapist's techniques, find another M.T. You will both be happier. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their needs?

Recent accidents or surgeries?

Pregnancy/miscarriage?

Chronic issues?

Recent major life change? (Stress!)

One-time session or ongoing wellness support?

Repetetive motions due to work/hobbies?
