Deep tissue massage,
I arranged a pregnancy massage for my sister-in-law and she couldn't have been happier! The massage was right in her home, she felt comfortable and relaxed through the entire appointment, and said it was the best she'd ever had. Would highly recommend - response time was incredible, booking and payment were super easy. 10/10Sep 19, 2019VerifiedImpress Bodywork's reply
Thank you Taline for the incredible review! It was a pleasure to work with Julia on her first prenatal massage.
Sam was great - she travelled to me very prepared with a very comfortable massage table, along with all of the sheets and pillows to make it seem like a fully built out massage studio. The massage itself was great, and she was able to provide the right pressure and let me know about some specific things I could do to improve my posture and muscle tightness going forward!Oct 14, 2019VerifiedImpress Bodywork's reply
Thanks for the great review Chris! It was a pleasure working with you.
I had such a nice 90-minute massage with Sam. I went in to relieve stress and help loosen some back and leg tightness. Sam is skilled, knowledgeable and tuned in - a true professional. We were able to make progress on some deeply held body patterns while also keeping things relaxing and not overwhelming. Thank you!Aug 22, 2019VerifiedImpress Bodywork's reply
Rachel, Thank you for the wonderful review! Looking forward to working with you again soon.
First visit with Sam at Impress Bodywork. I was very impressed. Very knowledgeable and skilled in meeting my needs for endurance training. After two years of searching for an outstanding massage therapist, I found one. Will be going back. She helped me to understand more about musculature and fascia related to repetitive use. Excellent!Sep 3, 2019VerifiedImpress Bodywork's reply
Thanks for the great review John! I'm glad you incorporating massage into your rigorous training regimen as its one of the best ways to prevent injury. Looking forward to working with you again soon!
Sam was great. To begin with she was extremely prompt to respond to my request on Thumbtack. She was also very flexible about scheduling the appointment and worked around my schedule. With regards to the massage, she was very thorough and detailed with her questions regarding my problem areas. I felt a lot better after her massage therapy. She focused on my problem area and ensure she worked within my comfort zone. I would definitely recommend her!Oct 9, 2019VerifiedImpress Bodywork's reply
Thanks Shikha! I glad you were able to get relief from our session.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My standard rates are $100/hour, $125/75 min, $150/1.5 hours. I charge an additional $50 travel fee for all on-site appointments. Pre-payment is required for all onsite (in-home) appointments. Your appointment is booked/confirmed upon receipt of payment not before, and your requested time may be given to another client in the meantime. Please note, I DO NOT ACCEPT TIPS and I do not offer sessions of less than 1 hour in length. For payment I accept cash and all major debit or credit cards. I do not accept checks or funds transfer services (e.g. Venmo, etc.) Late Cancelation Policy: Cancellations received within 24 hours of appointment start time are considered late cancellations and are nonrefundable. Appointments scheduled within 24 hours of appointment start time are considered to already be within late cancellation period. If prepayment has not been received for booking 100% of appointment cost must be paid in full prior to rescheduling. This policy is applicable to redemption of gift certificates and pre-paid packages. Gift certificates and pre-paid packages are redeemable for up to one year from purchase date.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?This depends on what the client is asking for. If the request is for more basic relaxation massage, then before starting our session I will ask the standard questions about history of injuries, surgeries and illness. If a request is for medical massage or the client is looking to build an ongoing relationship with a therapist to meet specific goals, then I will want to take a more thorough medical history, and will chart our sessions. This documentation can also be provided to the client for reimbursement from insurance or flexible spending accounts when applicable. I also, recommend an initial 90min session in these cases to do a thorough assessment and have time to review goals and history, unless the client's condition makes extended sessions difficult.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am committed to ongoing education to further my knowledge of my craft and bring you an expanded palette of tools that can be custom tailored to your unique needs. This year (2018) I am pursuing certification in Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Orthopedic Massage and Fascial Stretch Therapy. This is in addition to my training for working with oncology patients and clients with other medical complications.
