Rate change & C-Section scar massage

Hey gang! I’m adjusting my rates starting June 1st so that tax is now included in the price of the massage. The rates will be as follows:

30 min $65

45 min $85

60 min $110

90 min $145

 

I’m also excited to announce that I’m now offering C-section scar massage. You know how sometimes you don’t appreciate something until you’ve been through it yourself? I am totally guilty of that when it comes to prenatal massage- and as it turns out, C-section scar massage as well. My colleague and office-mate Polina offered to do some scar massage for me after a cough this winter left my scar aching badly, even 8 months after my surgery- and it had me intrigued!

After experiencing it myself, I practiced on some friends who were having more serious scar-related pain 6-10 months after giving birth- and received some really incredible feedback. They reported improvement on a physical level- reduction in pain- but on an mental/emotional level as well. People who felt like they couldn’t bring themselves to touch the scar before now felt okay touching it, and some reported that they felt like a physical weight had been lifted. Even weeks after a single session they told me they were still feeling so much better!

I think it’s really neat that this work can be helpful months (and even years, from what I’ve read!) after the surgery, and I’m really excited to be able to offer this to my clients. So if you or a loved one are still having issues relating to your C-section scar, this could be something to try! It can be done as a stand alone 30 minute session with the client fully clothed, or as part of a longer session.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Coming back next month!

Hello! I’ll be back in the office on Sunday August 5th. My booking site is now open and I am taking appointments for when I return.

I’m going to be working part-time for the foreseeable future, and will continue to share my office with Polina. My days will be Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday.

For the month of August I will be starting at 3pm during the week, and will go back to my usual 10am start in September.

I haven’t gone more than two weeks without massaging since 2007, so please bear with me as my body gets used to doing this again! 🙂

Off on maternity leave!

As of April 15th I am off on maternity leave! I anticipate coming back sometime around the end of July, and will update with my return date once I figure out when that is. If you have any questions while I am away feel free to get in touch by email and I will get back to you at my earliest convenience.

To my dear clients- don’t be a stranger! I would love to hear from you while I am out! See you all soon 🙂

What to expect now that I’m expecting!

(Last updated 4/5)

Dear world,

I’m very pregnant! Here’s what you should know about how that will affect my practice:

  • My day in the office will be April 15th. I am currently booked through then.
  • My anticipated return date is sometime mid-late-July or so. When I know, I’ll update my website with that date.
  • When I come back, I will be working part-time for the foreseeable future- tentatively Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. This schedule will start April 1st.
  • Starting April 1st, I will be sharing my office space with another local massage therapist, Polina Savelieva. Some of you may know her, as I’ve been referring to her for a couple years now. She’s also my massage therapist! I’m thrilled that she has agreed to enter this partnership with me, and hope you will contact her if you want to get a massage while I am on maternity leave.

I think that about sums it up- let me know if you have any questions!
