The following information is provided to ensure that your massage experience is safe and relaxing, and also so you know what to expect from your session.



What to expect from your session:
The first five minutes will begin with a short intake to collect medical history information and determine your goals for the session. The client will disrobe down to his/her comfort level, and will be draped with a sheet and blanket throughout the entire session, except for the area being worked. After the session is complete, take a few minutes to get up from the table. If you get up too quickly, you may take away from the work that was just completed, and you my also feel a little lightheaded.

Privacy and draping:
You may completely undress, or wear as much clothing as you are comfortable with.  You will be fully draped by a sheet and blanket throughout the massage with the exception of the area being worked.  Privacy is of utmost importance to me, and you will have complete privacy during the massage.



Confidentiality:

Your confidentiality is priority number one to me.  Anything communicated verbally or in writing within this relationship is guaranteed to remain private and protected.  I find that it is in both our best interests to keep the relationship on a therapeutic level.  If we happen to meet in public, I will only acknowledge you if you acknowledge me first; this is in order to protect your privacy, and is not meant to be rude.



Cancellation / Illness:
I understand that things in life happen, and that you may need to change a scheduled appointment. I am more than happy to change the scheduled time of the appointment if the availability is open.  If you need to cancel the session, I do require a 24-hour cancelation notice. If the appointment is cancelled less that 24 hours in advance, you will be responsible to pay for the full amount of the session. Appointments cancelled or rescheduled at least 24 hours in advance will not incur any additional charge. 
If you are feeling ill, please call as far in advance as possible to reschedule. In the case of illness it is best for both of us to reschedule, and in such an event there will be no charge for rescheduling.



Hygiene:
I respect the close nature of massage, and you can expect me to be clean and free of strong odor, please do the same for me. The table is cleaned and made up with fresh sheets for each session. Please let me know in advance if you have any allergies to any oils or lotions.



Environment:
I will provide a safe, comfortable, and relaxing environment for your session.  My ultimate concern is to respect your boundaries in order to provide this environment, and I ask the same from you.  If I feel at any time that my boundaries are disrespected, I will stop the session and expect full payment.  Please understand that I provide professional therapeutic massage.
