Trying something new can be scary, so I want to put you at ease as much as I can.
Have a question that isn't answered here? Please contact me and I will answer it for you.
How should I prepare for my first treatment?
Before your first session, you will be asked to complete two online forms that your therapist will email, unless you're unable to recieve email, in which case you will simply fill them out when you arrive for your appointment. It is recommended that you hydrate well the day leading up to your massage. Be sure to use the restroom beforehand if you feel like that might be an issue. There are restrooms onsight. And, remember to breathe and slow down as you make your way to your appointment. We want to calm the nervous system to reap the healing benefits, not stress it out! I allow time in my day for you to make the time in your busy day... please don't rush on my account!
How do I schedule a massage?
When you select 'Online Booking' at the top of this page, it will take you to a list of services you can choose from. Once you've made your selection, you may indicate which day and time you'd prefer and I will do my best to accomodate. You can expect to hear from me within 24-48 hours. If it is an emergency, please let me know so I can respond as soon as possible.
Are there forms to complete?
What can I expect once I arrive for my massage?
When you arrive, you will be greeted by your therapist who will escort you to the treatment room. Since you will have already shared much of your information on the intake form prior to your session, your therapist will briefly go over any areas of concern, giving you an opportunity to discuss things further and ask questions. Once the initial conversation is over, your therapist will step out of the room so that you can disrobe and lay down on the table.
Do you accept insurance?
Not at this time. For those who find that the regular service rates fall outside of their budget, Vital Flow does offer special rates through our 'Wellness For All' fund that anyone may apply for. You can find more information on the 'Wellness For All' page.
What are some of the benefits of massage?
Massage increases circulation by encouraging blood to be distributed throughout the body. It also helps move lymph which is involved with our immune system across nodes where it goes to be filtered out and recirculated. Because of its ability to calm the central nervous system, massage can help improve sleep and aid in repair to the CNS. This is also why it can be helpful to those dealing with symptoms of trauma and other stress and anxiety related conditions.
Where are you located?
What are your hours of operation?
Vital Flow operates by appointment only. That means that if you wish to schedule an appointment, you can indicate a preferred day and time and I will do my best to accomodate.
I'm interested in hoop lessons. What do I need to know about that?
Hoop lessons are scheduled by appointment. You and your instructor will discuss a time that works best. Lessons are about an hour long.
