Frequently Asked Questions
Your Questions, Answered
Where do you practice?
I perform massage services at my home studio in Fairfax, VA. I also provide clients with the option to meet them at their homes. (30-Minute Travel Radius)
Do you accept insurance?
I do not file insurance claims. Upon request, I can provide documentation of the massage therapy session which will include my license number for submission to health insurance companies or health/flexible spending accounts.
I accept payment in cash, by VENMO or Zelle, or by check. When you let me know how you want to pay, I will provide you with the details to complete the payment.
If you have special requirements with respect to massage lotion or cream, please provide your own, which I will gladly use. Otherwise, I will provide massage lotion or cream as needed.
If I see you in your home, I will bring a massage table, linens, and all equipment necessary for your massage. I will plan to wear a mask while in your home and will ask that you wear one as well if you are unvaccinated. I will arrive a few minutes before the appointment time to set up the table in the location of your choice. My massage session times do not include the consultation before getting on the table and reflect actual hands-on time.
In these uncertain times, I recognize that clients may need to cancel appointments with little or no notice. There will be no fee or consequences for cancellations. By the same token, I may have to cancel or reschedule appointments from time to time. I will always do my best to give you advance notice and to offer an alternative time as quickly as possible.
I work as a massage therapist and as a birth doula with clients who are vulnerable for a whole variety of reasons. I have an ethical obligation as a healthcare practitioner to do my utmost to ensure that I do not pose any threat of COVID infection to any of my clients. I take great precautions to ensure that COVID exposure or transmission will not take place. If you decide to schedule an appointment, I will share my COVID policy with you in advance to ensure that you are comfortable and accept the policy guidelines.
