A Full Hour
You get my full attention and expertise for a full hour. 60 minutes. Not 50 minutes. For one hour, you are the only one that matters. You’re the reason we are here in the same room. Want total silence? We can do that. Want me to work only upper body and your right foot? Sure, I got you.
60 minutes of no phone, no demands. Just you being cared for for a solid 60 minutes.
The clock doesn’t start till I put my hands on you. ⏰ This isn’t always the case for every massage business. I worked in luxury resorts for years and I can tell you that 50 minutes doesn’t always translate to 50 minutes hands on even if you arrive early in some cases!
In my studio 60, 90 and 120 minute treatments last exactly as long as advertised. (If you’re late, I may have to adjust that time in consideration of the next scheduled client.)
I’ve had over 15 years of practice and hundreds of hours of continuing education. I’ve worked with thousands of bodies. I’ve taught massage continuing ed to massage therapists. You get the full benefit of all those years of experience in a unique session just for you. I’ve picked up a lot of techniques and tricks over the years so that I can more effectively treat folks. I take more than the required hours of continuing education course every year so I’m always bringing something new into the mix. My investment in my ongoing education directly translates to my sessions.
I’ve got all kinds of neat pillows, blankets and ways of supporting your comfort while you’re on the table. Does it bother you to lay face up or face down on the table? No problem. Some of the best work I do is while lying on your side in a super supported and comfortable position. I got this. I will help you get so cozy that you will relax completely for your session.
So whether you are coming in for stress relief or a chronic pain issue, I’ve got the skills and level of experience to work with you effectively and safely.
High quality massage products
I only use the best products on your skin. I am super picky! You won’t leave my studio feeling gross from a ton of oil. You also won’t break out from synthetic fragrances.
Some therapists choose their products based on price. I have super sensitive skin myself and my hands are in this stuff for hours every week so I choose my products based on safety and quality. Only the best for you and I! 🙌 I mainly use jojoba. It’s not really oil, it’s a wax ester. It’s close in composition to our skin’s natural sebum.
Consistency and Professionalism
I maintain credentials with American Massage Therapist Association and the Associated Bodyworkers and Massage Professionals. Why does this matter? I care about being properly credentialed and educated for the safety and care of my clients.
I’m amazingly consistent. You’re session will always start at the scheduled time and I’m a really clear communicator. I will always ask you what kind of session you need that day.
You want silence and no music? No prob. You want to listen to your favorite podcast? Sure, why not. It wouldn’t be the first time giving a massage while listening to My Favorite Murder or Serial. Want to hear your own music? I’m game. I’ve had folks want to listen to everything from Led Zepplin to Chopin and everything in between. Left to my own devices I typically choose ambient music that you can lose yourself in. (Brian Eno is a favorite of mine) It’s your time. I follow your lead, if you want to chit chat, that’s cool. You want silence? Sure thing.
You are always welcome to speak up any time in the session if you need more or less pressure, more blankets, another heated neck wrap, a change in aromatherapy. Trust me, you won’t offend me by asking. I want this to be perfect for you!
I also maintain a super clean space. I wipe down my entire room in between each client. I air out my space and maintain high standards in cleanliness. My studio is a sanctuary and I aim to keep it a perfect little space of peace and calm.
You’re supporting a small business!
Yep, it’s just me. Not a big massage-in-a-box box place or a fancy-schmancy spa. I’m just a local business owner who is lucky to do the thing she loves for a living.
Keep those 💰in the local economy!
