I cannot even begin to put into words the value of Nerissa's skill when it comes to a quality experience and an even better massage. I live an active lifestyle where I'm always on the go and that takes a significant toll on my body. After my session with her I felt beyond rejuvenated I would swear I felt younger all that was missing was the white doves flying overhead. But seriously from her punctuality, attention to detail and precision you won't find any better out here and if I could give her 10 stars I would.😁😁

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Prices do not include travel, taxes, or gratuity. Depends on the area in which service is being requested.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After a professional introduction, I speak with the client about what they're looking for in terms of service. During conversation, I delve deeper into asking about medical history, the last time they had a massage, their experience with that massage, and attempt to find out as much medical information as I can. If the client decides to book a session with me, we set a date and time for appointment, at which a $30 deposit will be required to save their desired appointment time. Approximately 48 hours before session, intake forms will be sent to clients for medical history and creating a personalized session. During the session, I always check in with my client to ensure that I am not hurting them. They are always properly draped and my clients are allowed to ask any questions about massage or any techniques that I use during the session (effleurage, compression, petrissage, tapotement, trigger point therapy, PNF techniques, tense and relax, etc.). I do my best to help my client understand why certain techniques work for their specific ailments. After the session, I take the time to discuss aftercare and book their next session. At the end of the session, the remainder of payment is due.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a BA in Liberal Arts from Saint Vincent College (Latrobe, PA). I have a Professional Certificate in Musical Theatre from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (New York, NY). I have an AOS in Massage Therapy from Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences (New York, NY). I'm also a member of the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS), which is awarded to students who are the top of their game.
