Custom Therapeutic Massage:
A therapeutic massage is tailored to your needs and I use a combination of different techniques including Swedish and deep tissue. Please note that 60 minutes may not be enough time for full body if you want me to focus on deep tissue/trigger point a particular area, but we can still get a lot in!
60 minutes: $115
75 minutes: $135
This massage is tailored to pregnant women in their second and third trimesters to focus on alleviating aches and pains using props, different positions and various techniques that will help you fully relax.
There are a number of benefits to prenatal massage, including decreased stress levels, increased blood circulation and lymph drainage, a reduction in musculoskeletal aches and pains, and it can help improve swelling and nerve pain, hormone regulation and more. Contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
**Note: I cannot work with you in your first 12 weeks of pregnancy or if you are considered high risk by your provider. I will need a note from your provider clearing you from massage. Thank you for understanding**
60 minutes: $125
75 minutes: $145
**Packages for prenatal are not available at this time

I apologize for this inconvenience.
Appointment times are as scheduled and cannot extend beyond the stated time to accommodate late arrivals. Please be on time to your appointment.

Covid Safety Policies
Please read and follow accordingly
I still require all clients to be fully vaccinated and boosted
Masks: with my vaccine requirement, you are not required to wear a mask when you are lying prone (face down). However, because of our close proximity when I work on your head and neck, I do appreciate if you wear your mask when lying supine, at least for the upper body portion of the massage.
Please consider how you get to your appointment. If you have the means to walk, bike or drive, please consider doing so, but if you must take public transit, please be extra careful about sanitizing things you touch.
Covid Liability waiver: within 24 hours of your massage, you will receive an online Covid pre-screening to fill out.
Ending and beginning your massage is of utmost importance during these times so that I have sufficient time to clean and prepare for you and other clients.
Once you have arrived, please remove your shoes in the lobby and immediately wash your hands for 20 seconds in the bathroom.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
What I am doing:
I am fully vaccinated and boosted
I will be wearing a mask for the duration of your massage
I always wash my hands for 20 seconds before and after every session
All sheets, blankets, washcloths and any other related products are washed in a sterilized cycle
The table and all props are disinfected after each use
Some props will be removed at this time, I am sorry for any inconvenience
If I have cuts or any open wounds on my hands I will be wearing a glove. I have received many massages with gloved hands and can say this does not affect the efficacy of the massage, and you will most likely not even notice. This is to protect both you and me
