Frequently Asked Questions
If you have any questions not answered below, the quickest way for me to answer other questions is via phone or text. If sent via email, a response may take up to two weeks, possibly longer.
- Q. What is the best way to make an appointment?
- A. By phone or text. Phone is definitely best for the first appointment. Text is pretty effective after that. Email and I have a shaky relationship.
- Q. What should I wear to my appointment?
- A. Clothing matters here. I don''t trust myself to move sheets around, so I don't use a top sheet (remember - not a massage therapist). Men can bring stretchy loose fitting shorts if we are working on the lower body, or just strip to their skivvies. Women can do the same for the lower body. For the upper; a tank top, sports bra or loose fitting old t-shirt are good. (coconut oil in use)
*I always have my highly style conscious loaner shorts and sleeveless t-shirts available, which you are welcome to wear. Many do!
- Q. How much does treatment cost?
- A. A one hour session will cost approximately $80. I charge that for the first 6 sessions that we are working on the same issue. If a person comes in for more than the 6 sessions, the price drops to $70. I do my best to have any issue cleared up in 6 sessions or less, if at all possible. Many are.
- Q. Does insurance cover the cost of treatment?
- A. HSAs seem to pay, and most of those have checks or cards that I can run. Otherwise I am unable to bill insurances, as I am neither a physical therapist nor doctor. This actually works out in everyone's favor, which I can explain, if you wish. It also leads to the next question.
- Q. What forms of payment are accepted?
- A. Cash always works of course. Personal checks; preferably more local. I also accept credit and debit cards, though I add $2 to the amount, to cover the fees charged for using them.
- Q. What is the cancellation policy?
- A. I ask that clients please give a 12 hour notice if they are unable to make an appointment. Given enough notice, I am often able to fill that time slot from a waiting list.
- Q. What type of wonderful and extremely well behaved dogs keep you company?
- A. I'm very partial to the Airedale Terrier breed. They are exceedingly adaptable and act as my therapy dogs. Not that I ask much of them in that regard. Their job is to meet you, if you are so inclined, stick around if you like, and then lay about while we work, all the while giving off good vibes.
- Q. What are their names?
- A. The male is the senior dog now, that's Fergus. The larger of the two is the younger female, Rogan.
