Embodiwork Services

Medical History and Drug Interactions
For your own safety, you must provide us with an honest health history and list of medications taken during our initial intake process and continually update when necessary. This is in case there may be any contraindications for any particular types of treatment.

It is important you arrive, not under the influence of alcohol during your appointment. Please inform us if any pain relieving medications have been taken within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment. Consumption of certain substances can alter depth perception and may contribute to unpleasant side effects of massage (like soreness or nausea). 

Balanced Blood Sugar

It is best to eat light meals before a treatment. Overeating and hunger pangs during a massage can undermine relaxation and cause unpleasant effects. It is best if your blood sugar levels are balanced.

Hydration
Proper hydration is highly recommended. You will maximize the overall effectiveness of your treatment, meanwhile minimizing soreness and discomfort. Best of all, you will have a very happy therapist whose hands thank you.

Personal Hygiene
Please come clean, having showered the day of your session. Make sure your therapist is made aware of any rashes, warts or other contagious conditions you are experiencing.

Sexual Boundaries
All services offered at Embodiwork are non-sexual. Sexual harassment and vulgar language are not tolerated. My clients remain draped at all times during the session. Only the parts of the body being worked on are exposed at any given time. The genitals are never exposed or massaged. If our safety ever feels compromised, the session will end immediately.

Payment
Payment is expected at the time the treatment is rendered. Pre-paid and membership options are available for your convenience. Any other
arrangement must be made prior to treatment. We accept cash, check, and credit cards.

24-Hour Cancellation Policy
Appointment times are reserved just for you. We understand that sometimes schedule adjustments are necessary and we do my best to be flexible. Your appointment times can be managed (cancelled or changed) by clicking on the ’manage your appointment’ on the bottom of your confirmation email or reminder email that goes out 48 hours before you appointment time. Please make sure you provide us with an email account that you check regularly.

We respectfully ask that you honor our 24 hours cancellation policy. Without giving enough notice, we do not have sufficient time to fill that time slot, and other folks miss the opportunity to receive services. Thank you!

  • Less than 24 hour notice will result in a charge equal to 50% of the reserved service amount (single session pricing).
  • “NO SHOWS” will be charged 100% of the reserved service amount.
  • For appointments made within the 24 hour period, client’s must cancel within 4 hours of appointment time or it will result in a charge equal to 50% of the reserved service amount.

Cancellation Policy for Pre-Paid Packages and Lifestyle Memberships

  • Rescheduling without providing 24 hour notice and “No Shows” will result in a forfeiture of treatment. You are, however, allowed to send friends or family in your place.
  • For appointments made within the 24 hour period, client’s must cancel within 4 hours of appointment time or it will result in a charge equal to 50% of the reserved service amount.

~ Sliding scale fees are available for individuals who qualify. We offer an senior discount for clients 62+ and for full-time students. Joining our lifestyle memberships or purchasing your treatments in pre-paid packages also make regular bodywork easier on the pocket.
