I strive for maximum comfort and peace of mind for all people in my practice. I understand that this world does not make room for those of us with bodies that don't fit into the realm of what is designated as 'typical', and I find it important to communicate that I will make that room for all of us in our sessions. If you are a person who uses electronic mobility devices, is Deaf or hard of hearing, is blind or partially sighted, needs a translator, or any other circumstances that require/desire specific accommodation, please let me know and we will collaborate on a solution.
I will send you the exact address after we confirm our appointment. Trolley #13 stops 0.2 miles from the location at the Chester and Yeadon Ave stop.
There are five steps leading up to the front door, and fourteen steps to the second floor where the treatment room is. *Please let me know if this makes the space inaccessible to you, I can arrange to come to you at no extra cost*
The space is low scent, though not scent free.
The space is well lit, and pathways are clear.
My chihuahua, Dearly Beloved, will likely be in the space. She offers grounding of her own, a kind of therapy for my clients, and is very sweet and friendly. Please let me know about pet allergies, fears, or if you are planning to bring your service animal.
All furniture in the treatment room is chosen with my fat community in mind. The massage table is 29 inches wide, 72 inches long, and carries 450 pounds. I have extenders that widen the table by 4 inches on either side, bolsters to support various body areas, and have a variety of sizes of blankets and sheets. If this table won't work for you, let me know, I have other options available.
I use unscented sunflower seed oil and have other oil options available.

ARRIVAL TO YOUR MASSAGE: New first time clients are asked to arrive 10 minutes early to become oriented to the space and to provide time to do a more in depth verbal intake. Established clients should arrive 5 minutes before their scheduled time. All massages have a specific time schedule and early arrival allows for a relaxed and unhurried experience. If late arrival is inevitable, your service may be shortened in order to keep on schedule and the original treatment time will be charged.
CANCELLATION POLICY: Please provide at least a 24 hour notice if you need to reschedule or cancel a treatment. This gives me enough time to fill the slot. I send a reminder email 1 day prior to your scheduled appointment, please respond to it so that I know you are coming. Cancelling within 24 hours will incur a fee of 50% of the session rate, unless you are sick in any way. Please try and give me as much notice as you can!
NO SHOW POLICY: Clients who do not show without cancelling are still responsible for payment.
TIPPING: It is customary to tip around 20% of the rate of the service. This is, of course, optional.
TREATING MINORS: I am prepared and excited to work with people under the age of 18! If the child is younger than 18 years old, I will ask for a signature from the parent or guardian OR ask that they sit in on the treatment.
