My standard $80 massage last 60 to 70 minutes and is a full body massage with targeted work on one, sometimes two, regions of the body. I massage until I feel I have done what I can for you in this session on this day. If we go beyond 70 minutes, an hourly rate of $80 applies. I will notify you if we are coming up on 70 minutes. See below for how I schedule my artisan massage differently, and how you benefit.
You are guaranteed a minimum of 60 minutes, sometimes more, of actual time on the table. Because most massages are scheduled at the top of the hour and back-to-back, a one-hour massage is often more a 50 to 55-minute massage. The massage therapist needs time to change sheets and freshen the room between clients. You, the client, need time to tell me what you are looking for, and to undress and dress again at the end. Allow 75 minutes for your appointment so you get your guaranteed 60 minutes of table time.
You will not be my eighth, or even sixth, massage of the day. I do not schedule more than three or four full body massages in one day. A tired massage therapist cannot deliver a quality massage.
You will not be rushed onto or off the massage table. As I do not schedule back-to-back full body massages, you will still get your full massage even if the traffic is bad, and you are 10 minutes late. Or, if my client preceding you had a clear need for 10 minutes extra time on the table, your massage will still start on time.
You will experience a massage environment that is hassle free: free from harried, frustrated front desk personalities, free from the selling of products or upselling of services. If you want education, advice, resources for information, I will provide it as it flows from our conversation and what I am finding in your body as I massage. I am here to serve you, not to forward my own agenda. I am happy to share with you the benefits of my education and health experience as it is appropriate to your situation.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.
i understand that unanticipated events happen occasionally in everyone’s life. In my desire to be effective and fair to all clients, the following policies are honored:
24 hour advance notice is required when cancelling an appointment. This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule an appointment. If you are unable to give me 24 hours advance notice you will be charged the full amount of your appointment. This amount must be paid prior to your next scheduled appointment.
Anyone who either forgets or consciously chooses to forgo their appointment for whatever reason will be considered a “no-show.” They will be charged for their “missed” appointment.
If you arrive late, your session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. Depending upon how late you arrive, I will then determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the “full” session. Out of respect and consideration to me and to other customers, please plan accordingly and be on time.
