Practicing Yoga

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What can I expect?

Before your session, we talk in detail about your complaint, relevant health history and your goals.  We go over techniques for your optimal spinal alignment when sitting, standing and moving.  Then, corrective movement exercises are given so you can integrate them into your daily life and repattern your body.  The third component is the massage portion.

What hands-on therapies do you use?

For the massage portion, I choose from the following modalities: therapeutic massage, deep tissue massage, trigger point work, cupping therapy, gua sha (scraping), hot stones, and stretching.  By the way, my rate is all inclusive (no add-on fees) and you are draped modestly during your session.

 

Does massage/gua sha/cupping hurt?

It should not hurt.  I take your pain to “the edge of good, effective pressure.” Communication is key so if I venture out of your comfort zone and you find it difficult to relax, please tell me. You are in control.

 

When does a session start and end?

At the start of your session we chat about the goal for the session.  The clock starts ticking when when we begin the spinal alignment & corrective exercises and then we proceed into the massage. The session concludes after you pay and we discuss any post-session suggestions.

 

Do you follow COVID19 safety protocols?

Definitely!  Disinfection takes place after every client. Face masks are required when you are lying face-up. When COVID restrictions are on high alert, a COVID19 Screening Questionnaire is completed, your hands are sanitized and your temperature taken.

 

Should I keep my appointment if I’m sick?

Contact me to reschedule if you feel sick, experiencing body aches suspect you have a fever or any related COVID symptoms. 

Please note there is a 24-hour cancellation policy in effect.

 

Do you sell gift cards?

Yes! I sell e-gift cards.  Text me with that request.

 

Should I tip?

Tips are not expected and you will not be asked.  If you offer, it is graciously accepted.

 

What are your payment options?

I accept payment by cash, check, HSA/FSA, debit and credit cards.
