Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe to receive massage while pregnant?
Yes, it is safe to receive massage while pregnant, with limitations. Because we do not suggest massage in your first trimester, as your body is adjusting to all the necessary changes, we simply ask that you bring a doctors note to ensure you are having a normal and healthy pregnancy. If you have a history of miscarriages or other complications, we advise waiting to receive a service until you are through the first 12 weeks. Throughout your pregnancy, expect to receive a massage that has more of a relaxing approach in mind, as deep tissue work is not safe throughout the entire pregnancy. Prenatal massage is meant to ease your mind and body of unnecessary stress and tension as you adjust to the changes that are bound to occur.
Are there any health concerns in which massage is contraindicated(should not be done)?
Yes. Massage should not be done under certain medical conditions, including without limitations:
Tissue or swelling which might be malignant
Marked degrees of hernia
Gastric or duodenal ulcers
Acute skin infections (expect psoriasis)
Acute inflammation of the bone and/or marrow osteomyelitis
Acute inflammatory processes (except bursitis)
Known thrombosis (blood clots)
Acute disease accompanied by fever
Acute inflammation of the veins

Yes. We have a parking lot that all guests are welcome to use to the side of the building, directly off 2nd Street. If the lot is full, there is also unmetered street parking in front of the building.
Please allow a 24 hour notice if you cannot make your scheduled appointment. Notice can be given via phone or email and will be honored with no penalties as long as it meets the 24 hour requirement. No-show appointments will be required to pay 50% of their service price and will be due before the next scheduled appointment.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. Arriving late may result in a shortened appointment time as your therapist may not have time in their scheduled to accommodate the late arrival.
