Short answer, it’s a form of deep tissue massage. It usually does leave bruises, but the bruising does not hurt. Please see my post about Cupping Massage for more details.
Undress as much as you are comfortable. You will be properly draped under a sheet and blanket for the entirety of your session.
I understand that “life” happens and sometimes clients need to cancel appointments. I do not charge a fee unless a client is a repeat offender when it comes to last minute cancellations and no shows.
There are plenty of studies that prove the effectiveness of massage relieving tension headaches, but there is little to no proof that massage can relieve a migraine headache. It really is a personal judgement call. If your migraine is leaving you feeling dizzy and nauseous, maybe braving traffic to come get a massage isn’t the best option at the moment.
Yes, but it’s not necessary. I set my prices to ensure that I earn a fair wage while still being able to cover my overhead. Honestly, I’d rather you take whatever money you’d give as a gratuity and put it towards your next massage.
If you’re the type of person who keeps themselves properly hydrated in the first place, you don’t really need to drink extra water after your massage. If you don’t drink enough water on a daily basis, you should start! After all massage appointments, I supply my clients with bottled water to take home.
It’s up to you! If you feel like talking, then by all means, strike up a conversation. If you want to keep quiet and drift off to your own island in your head, then go for it. It’s your massage, do whatever feels best for you.
It depends on the injury. Acute injuries are normally avoided during massage. If you’re currently doing rehab or physical therapy, then massage can be a great tool for speeding up the recovery process.
I only do house calls for special occasions such as spa or bridal parties.
I do not accept major medical insurance. However, if you are using Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage through your auto insurance, I can submit the necessary paperwork to your auto insurance agent to reimburse you the price of the massage.
Young athletes need bodywork too! All clients under the age of 18 are required to have a parent or guardian sign the massage intake form. Parents/guardians are also allowed in the treatment room during the massage of a minor. I do give all minors a 10% discount on all services.
