- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My rate for massage is $100 for one hour, but only $105 for 90 minutes. I do this to encourage clients to give me enough time to create a really luxurious experience. My rates for Touch and Cuddling Sessions begin at $1 per minute, (60 minute minimum,) and increase only if a third party therapist or filing insurance paperwork will be involved. I accept cash and major credit cards. No checks, please.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
If a client wants a Massage, I have the usual health information intake forms, and we discuss what their particular concerns are (areas of pain, medical conditions, surgeries, etc.) I answer their questions before I begin and as I go along. If a client is seeking Cuddling or Touch Sessions, we first meet to discuss what they hope to accomplish through the sessions, and to set our intentions. You can read about the entire intake process for these services on my website on the Intake Process page.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was trained in Massage Therapy at Northern Virginia Community College in Woodbridge, Virginia. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2014. Before deciding to pursue Massage Therapy, I had been an Elementary school teacher for 16 years. I also studied Nursing at Germanna Community College for a year prior to Massage Therapy school, but found Massage Therapy to be a better fit for me.
