PAYMENT OPTIONS

 

I accept payments via cash, check, Venmo, PayPal, or Zelle.  I also accept credit or debit cards via a Square reader with a 3% fee. I am asking all clients to pay electronically whenever possible to reduce points of contact. All clients must have a credit card on file in order to book an appointment.

L&I

As an L&I Network Provider, I can accept clients who have experienced work injuries and are covered by L&I insurance. I offer a range of therapeutic massage and bodywork modalities that can be very effective in treating acute and chronic injuries.

 

PIP

If you have experienced an injury in a recent car accident and are covered by Personal Injury Protection insurance, I can accept this insurance and work with you to recover from your injury.

 

Private Health Insurance

Unfortunately, I am not able to directly accept any private health insurance. I am, however, able to provide you with a detailed receipt that you can send to your health insurance company to possibly receive a partial reimbursement. Many of my clients have had success with this method. To have the highest chance of success:

 

  • Check with your health insurance plan to make sure it covers massage therapy

  • If your health insurance plan does cover massage therapy, find out if you need to get a prescription before receiving massage (not a requirement for all plans).

  • If your health insurance does require a prescription for massage therapy, visit your primary care provider and request a prescription before coming to your massage appointment. 

  • At the end of your appointment, you will pay me directly, and then I will send you a detailed receipt that you can send to your insurance company.

 

POLICIES

CANCELLATION POLICY

I strongly request 48 hours notice for cancellations; providing ample notice for cancellations helps me keep my small business afloat. I do not charge cancellation fees related to sickness or exposure. If you are sick, or if you find out that you have been exposed to COVID-19, please stay home, get tested, take care of yourself, and help protect me and my other clients. If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice for other reasons, your will be charged the full cost of your session.

 

Running Late?

It happens! If you are running late, send me a text or give me a call to let me know, if possible. I will give you as much time as possible on the table once you arrive.

 

Intake Forms & Consent Forms

You will receive a Health Intake & Consent Form via email prior to your appointment. Please fill out this form before you arrive, and please update the form before each of your sessions. If you have requested a full chest/breast massage, you fill out an Informed Consent form at the time of your appointment.

SCENTS

I request that each client come to their session as scent free as possible, to create more accessibility for scent-sensitive clients.

 

COVID-19 POLICIES

I have developed the following policies in order to keep us all as safe as possible. These procedures on sanitizing, PPE usage, and other safety considerations are in alignment with the requirements and recommendations for massage therapy from the Departments of Health and Labor & Industries. I appreciate your support and participation in mitigating the risk of viral transmission to yourself, to me, and to my other clients. 

 

Before your appointment:

  • I will send you a Health Intake & Informed Consent form electronically. Please fill it out before arriving for your session.

  • When you fill out your Intake Form before each session, you are verifying that you have not had any recent exposure to someone with COVID-19, and are not experiencing any symptoms. Please cancel your appointment if you are feeling sick, or find out that you have been exposed.

  • New cancellation policy - If you wake up on the day of your appointment and you are experiencing symptoms, especially a dry cough, difficulty breathing or fever, or if you find out at the last minute that you were exposed to the virus, please let me know as soon as possible. We will cancel and reschedule your appointment at no charge. 

  • Remember your mask!

 

At your appointment:

  • When you arrive for your appointment, buzz Suite 120 so that I can let you into the building. No need to arrive early, each appointment will start right on time.  

  • I will take your temperature with a no-contact thermometer at the door. This practice may help catch a low grade fever that you were unaware of. If you do have a fever, we will reschedule your appointment for a different time. 

  • I will have a contactless hand sanitizer dispenser in the office area, and ask that you use it when you enter.

  • You will need to wear a mask throughout your entire time in the studio. If you forget your mask, I will have disposable masks on hand. 

    • I know that wearing a mask may make it difficult to lie face down on the massage table. Because of this, I will be offering more massage in a side-lying position so that we can still work on your back. We can determine your comfort level and needs during the massage.

  • I will have eye shields available for you to wear while you are lying face up.

  • I will be wearing a mask with a KN95 mask and a face shield throughout your session, as well as a nurse’s cap and scrubs. I will be changing my mask and scrubs, and sanitizing my face shield, between each client. 

  • I do not plan to use gloves for most sessions, but I will have them available if you would like me to use them during your session.

 

Payment:

  • In order to reduce points of contact, I am asking everyone to pay electronically if possible. There are multiple ways to do this:

    • Pre-pay when you book online. This method uses Square, and works exactly the same as running a card at my office (except that it eliminates the need to touch my phone!). You can use any credit or debit card, including FSA and HSA cards.

    • Pay at the time of the appointment using Zelle, Venmo, PayPal or CashApp (and if you have another payment app your prefer, let me know ahead of your session so that I can download it). 

    • If you need to pay in cash or check, I’ll have envelopes available for you to deposit them into.

 

Sanitizing Procedures:

  • I am increasing the gap between each appointment to ensure that there is enough time for fully sanitizing the studio and allowing air to circulate. 

  • I will be sanitizing every surface that you or I came into contact with using a hospital-grade sanitizing solution. 

  • I will be changing out all linens, including blankets, between each client.

 

After your appointment:

  • If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, or develop COVID-19 type symptoms, at any point in the 14 days after your massage, please let me know as soon as possible. If I receive a report that one of my recent clients has received a diagnosis or developed symptoms, or if I am diagnosed or develop symptoms, I will immediately alert all of the clients I have seen in the previous 2 weeks. I will not, of course, share your name or any of your personal details.
