  • How to I tell my therapist that I do not like the pressure/technique being used?
    Simple, Speak up! Understand that we as therapists read body language, not minds. 😊 With experience, your therapist will become aware of discomfort and will adjust accordingly to better suit you and will check in periodically to make sure you're alright and that is your que if you haven't already mentioned it to do so. If we aren't aware or made aware of an issue we will proceed with the inclination that you're enjoying the massage which isn't good for anyone. The client is dissatisfied and leaves a bad review. The therapist assumes all is well until the bad review is brought to their attention, the therapist will question what they did wrong and it will bother them because they thought they did a good job. You will not hurt our feelings if you dislike any aspect of the massage, our job is to provide excellence and with your help we can.
  • What are the benefits of massage therapy??
    The health experts at National University of Health Sciences presents the top five health benefits of adding regular massage therapy to your health and wellness strategy. Massage therapy from a licensed practitioner can: Lower stress The long-term effects of stress can take emotional and physical tolls. Massage therapy may relieve stress and conditions associated with it, such as tension headaches. Increased Immune Function Medical research indicates that massage therapy can help boost immune system strength by increasing the activity level of the body’s natural “killer T cells,” which fight off viruses. Boost Mental Health and Wellness Research suggests that symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression (all associated with mental health) may be directly affected by massage therapy. Pain Management and Improved Range of Motion Pain can negatively affect a person’s quality of life and impede recovery from illness or injury. Recent findings highlight the role of massage in pain management. Improved Physical Fitness Elite and recreational athletes alike can benefit from massage therapy – massage can reduce muscle tension, improve exercise performance, and prevent injuries.
  • Do I have to be completely undressed? What do you wear for a massage?
    You may undress to your level of comfort. Many people prefer to keep their underwear on during a massage, while others choose to be nude. Your massage therapist will leave the room so you can undress and lie on the massage table under a top sheet. Regardless if you choose to maintain some clothing or not, your massage therapist will always ensure that you are always properly covered.
  • I bought a massage package, can I gift a massage to someone else?
    Absolutely, our packages may be redeemed with your Referral. once that person has completed his/her session a 15% referral credit will be added to your file as well.
  • What if I would like to extend my time during my massage?
    If there is time available after your scheduled session we are more than happy to accommodate.
  • I can't make it, can someone else take my place?
    Yes, as long as that person is on time for the appointment.
  • I have tried to call, no one has answered the phone, how to I reach someone?
    Our number is attached to a mobile device, please send a text or leave a voice mail. as a small business we can not always answer and we receive ALOT of cold calls. We don't always know which call is which, we understand that this can be frustrating; just know it is not intentional we just don't want to call someone back that is trying to help us extend our cars warranty 😅😂
  • Our commitment to our clients
    1. COMMITMENT TO HIGH-QUALITY CARE I will serve the best interests of my clients at all times and provide the highest quality of bodywork and service possible. I recognize that the obligation for building and maintaining an effective, healthy, and safe therapeutic relationship with my clients is my responsibility. 2. COMMITMENT TO DO NO HARM I will conduct a thorough health history intake process for each client and evaluate the health history to rule out contraindications or determine appropriate session adaptations. If I see signs of, or suspect, an undiagnosed condition that massage may be inappropriate for, I will refer that client to a physician or other qualified health-care professional and delay the massage session until approval from the physician has been granted. I understand the importance of ethical touch and therapeutic intent and will conduct sessions with the sole objective of benefitting the client. 3. COMMITMENT TO HONEST REPRESENTATION OF QUALIFICATIONS I will not work outside the commonly accepted scope of practice for massage therapists and bodywork professionals. I will adhere to my state's scope of practice guidelines (when applicable). I will only provide treatments and techniques for which I am fully trained and hold credible credentials. I will carefully evaluate the needs of each client and refer the client to another provider if the client requires work beyond my capabilities, or beyond the capacity of massage and bodywork. I will not use the trademarks and symbols associated with a particular system or group without authentic affiliation. I will acknowledge the limitations of massage and bodywork by refraining from exaggerating the benefits of massage therapy and related services throughout my marketing. 4. COMMITMENT TO UPHOLD THE INHERENT WORTH OF ALL INDIVIDUALS I will demonstrate compassion, respect, and tolerance for others. I will seek to decrease discrimination, misunderstandings, and prejudice. I understand there are situations when it is appropriate to decline service to a client because it is in the best interests of a client's health, or for my personal safety, but I will not refuse service to any client based on disability, ethnicity, gender, marital status, physical build, or sexual orientation; religious, national, or political affiliation; social or economic status. 5. COMMITMENT TO RESPECT CLIENT DIGNITY AND BASIC RIGHTS I will demonstrate my respect for the dignity and rights of all individuals by providing a clean, comfortable, and safe environment for sessions, using appropriate and skilled draping procedures, giving clients recourse in the event of dissatisfaction with treatment, and upholding the integrity of the therapeutic relationship. 6. COMMITMENT TO INFORMED CONSENT I will recognize a client's right to determine what happens to his or her body. I understand that a client may suffer emotional and physical harm if a therapist fails to listen to the client and imposes his or her own beliefs on a situation. I will fully inform my clients of choices relating to their care, and disclose policies and limitations that may affect their care. I will not provide massage without obtaining a client's informed consent (or that of the guardian or advocate for the client) to the session plan. 7. COMMITMENT TO CONFIDENTIALITY I will keep client communication and information confidential and will not share client information without the client's written consent, within the limits of the law. I will ensure every effort is made to respect a client's right to privacy and provide an environment where personal health-related details cannot be overheard or seen by others. 8. COMMITMENT TO PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL BOUNDARIES I will refrain from and prevent behaviors that may be considered sexual in my massage practice and uphold the highest professional standards in order to desexualize massage. I will not date a client, engage in sexual intercourse with a client, or allow any level of sexual impropriety (behavior or language) from clients or myself. I understand that sexual impropriety may lead to sexual harassment charges, the loss of my massage credentials, lawsuits for personal damages, criminal charges, fines, attorney's fees, court costs, and jail time. 9. COMMITMENT TO HONESTY IN BUSINESS I will know and follow good business practices with regard to record keeping, regulation compliance, and tax law. I will set fair fees and practice honesty throughout my marketing materials. I will not accept gifts, compensation, or other benefits intended to influence a decision related to a client. If I use the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals logo, I promise to do so appropriately to establish my credibility and market my practice. 10. COMMITMENT TO PROFESSIONALISM I will maintain clear and honest communication with clients and colleagues. I will not use recreational drugs or alcohol before or during massage sessions. I will project a professional image with respect to my behavior and personal appearance in keeping with the highest standards of the massage profession. I will not actively seek to take someone else's clients, disrespect a client or colleague, or willingly malign another therapist or other allied professional. I will actively strive to positively promote the massage and bodywork profession by committing to self-development and continually building my professional skills.
