Please arrive 10 minutes early to your first appointment. You can fill out the massage intake form by hand at the spa, or in advance by hand or digitally.
The start and end time of your appointment is the hands-on portion. For example: If you have a 60-minute massage from 4 PM - 5 PM, I'll be starting the massage at 4 PM.
In subsequent visits arrive 5 minutes early (beverage, restroom, intake questions, get on massage table). After your appointment end time, the reverse sequence plus payment takes 5 minutes.
If it's my first appointment of the day, I arrive 15-30 minutes early to setup.

I am primarily a wellness massage therapist. I have the most experience working on clients between the ages of 17-60 who are in good health and seeking massage for relaxation, stress relief, muscle tension, knots, and restricted range of motion. Typically my clients don't have contraindications for massage or special medical conditions that require advanced training.
Contraindication: something (such as a symptom or condition) that makes a particular treatment or procedure inadvisable. (merriam-webster.com)
Absolute contraindications for massage are medical conditions that bar the client from receiving any massage therapy at all.
Examples include: contagious diseases, fever, poison ivy/oak, parasites (ticks, fleas, lice, bedbugs), recent radiation/chemotherapy treatments, under the influence of drugs/alcohol/prescription pain medication, neuritis
Some contraindications require a doctor's note prior to receiving massage. The doctor can also specify any modifications or limitations.
For example, light to medium pressure might be permitted while deep pressure is not.
Examples of conditions: kidney or liver conditions, cardiovascular conditions (hypertension/high blood pressure, thrombosis/blood clots, phlebitis), cancer, osteoporosis, psychosis, epilepsy, diabetes, trapped/pinched nerves
Local contraindications for massage are medical conditions that are restricted to a certain area. The client can still receive massage as long as that area is not worked on.
Examples include: cuts, scrapes, open wounds, bruises, sunburns, burns, undiagnosed lumps/bumps, varicose veins, inflammation including arthritis, broken bones
