FAQ/Rates

what are your Rates?

The combined sales tax rate for Duluth, MN is 8.375%. This is the total of state, county and city sales tax rates which will be added to all services during checkout.  Water is complementary and essential oils, hot stones, pain liniments (if needed) and hot towels are all included at no extra costs.

WHAT TYPE OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

Cash, Credit or Debit Cards. No checks.

What’s your massage style?

Freestyle, from the heart, professional. Each session is tailored to each individual’s needs, whatever they may be.  I only use pure oils and creams, meaning they are either organic or free from chemicals, parabens, etc. I deliver each treatment with a compassionate, open, fun and intuitive approach. My practice focuses on relaxation and tension relief, not medical massage. I work strictly preventative, meaning, I work with healthy clients only. If you were in a recent accident and have massage prescribed, I will ask to see your physician’s referral.

WOW, Ashiatsu sounds great, but how do I know if it’s right for me?

Ashiatsu is great for those who love deep tissue, are larger built, athletes, construction workers, new parents carrying baby and having sore shoulders, the stressed out student, etc. Pressure and level of depth applied is ALWAYS customized to each client, therefore, even if you are a tiny little person, you can still receive Ashiatsu Massage.  If there are any contraindications those will be determined during intake.

Do you take insurance?

Not at this  time.

How much time do I get?

To allow your full time of massage, please be prepared and expect to have a short intake of about 5 minutes. If you are not ready at the time of your scheduled appointment, others after you will be late too. If you arrive late, your session will be cut short, however, you will be responsible for the full amount.

a word on Gratuity (tip):

I always appreciated it, but it is never required. Please don’t let that determine whether or not you can afford a massage.

What if I need to cancel my appointment?

Please call to reschedule or cancel at least 24 hours in advance. This allows me to call another client that was on the waiting list. Please understand that lost appointments, i.e. no-shows, late cancellations cost me real money, which I rely on to support my family. I manage complex client schedules and advanced bookings. For cancellations less than 24 hours in advance, you are charged a 50% forfeiture fee. If you forget or consciously choose to forgo your appointment for whatever reason the full charge of the scheduled appointment will be charged and due at your next scheduled appointment. Thank you for understanding!
