Frequently Asked Questions
What are your policies?
I am following the current recommendations from the CDC, the FSMTB (Federation of State Massage Therapy Board) and the North Carolina Massage Board and have implemented these measures of protection, cleaning and sanitization.
I run a medical grade HEPA air filter in the treatment room.

What should I know about or expect during my session?
For your first massage session with me, try to arrive 5-10 minutes early to fill out a short health intake form.
I always give you exactly 60/75/90 minutes of hands-on time and I don't deduct time for dressing/undressing, etc. so expect to stay an extra 15-20 minutes or so after your appointment time. Try your best to allow time before and after your massage to relax, and not to book too closely to other engagements.
I'm a new client, can we chat on the phone before I feel comfortable booking an appointment with you?
Absolutely! In fact, if you are a new client and not a referral, I prefer for us to have a quick conversation on the phone before meeting in person. This is not only for your comfort, but also so that I can be sure we are a good fit.
