Q What can I expect at my first massage session?
A
First, you will discover my top-of-the-line massage table, which has a state-of-the-art face cradle made of Tempur-Pedic® memory foam, comfortable arm rests, a thick plush table pad with heating option, a bolster for support of your knees and ankles, and a deluxe cotton sheet set. If oil is to be used, I offer organic Gladiator Massage Oil™ or water-based lotion for your body, and organic Eucalyptus and Lavendar oils for your feet.
     We will have a conversation about your history of injuries or operations, allergies, past massage experience, and your current physical complaints of pain or other concerns. I will explain the protocol for your session, including the type of massage and techniques I will use, and we will establish a goal for your massage session.
     Then I will turn on calming music played on surround-sound speakers and excuse myself to wash my hands while you get on the table (or floor, if doing barefoot compression therapy) and I will return to begin your session. An area will be provided for you to keep your personal belongings safe.
      My 2-hour massage sessions also include hot stone therapy using quality Sassi Stones.
      During your massage treatment, I will occasionally ask for feedback about the pressure of my strokes and your level of comfort.
     After your massage, I will excuse myself to wash my hands while you gather your personal belongings.
     Finally, we will have a brief conversation about your experience and I will remind you to drink plenty of water over the following 12 hours. If you like, we can book your next massage session.

Q Do I need to remove my clothing?
A
No. Barefoot Compression Therapy, Tui Na, and Reflexology do not require removal of any clothing. Swedish Massage and Trigger Point Therapy utilize ethical draping methods to ensure only the part of the body being massaged is exposed. Only Hawaiian Lomi Lomi calls for most of the body to be exposed at once. It is completely up to you if you wish to be covered or not.

 


Q Do you offer massage gift certificates?
A
Yes. Please call Jeff at (203)524-4779 to arrange for payment (cash, check, or credit cards accepted) and free delivery of gift certificates for massage therapy sessions.

 


Q Where is the massage performed and parking?
A
I can come to your performance venue, event, wellness fair, private home, hotel, dressing room, or office anywhere within the Santa Barbara and Ventura area (+$50 outcall fee), or we can meet at my private Montecito massage studio located at 1211 Coast Village Road, Suite 1, Santa Barbara, CA 93108.

Note: Parking on Coast Village Road is limited to 90 minutes during the hours of 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Q What is your cancellation policy?
A
If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so at least 24 hours before to allow another client to book in your scheduled time slot. If you do not cancel your scheduled massage before 24 hours of your appointment, you may be held responsible for payment.

 


Q How do I know which massage therapy is right for me?
A
I try to incorporate all my modalities into each of your massage sessions. Before your massage, we can discuss your goal for the session. Simple stress relief and relaxation are obtained through Swedish Massage, while acute or chronic pain may need to be addressed with Deep Tissue Massage modalities. Often a combination of techniques from different modalities is appropriate. My ultimate goal is always to help you feel better, both mentally and physically.

 


Q 
Are you insured?
A
Yes. A comprehensive liability and malpractice insurance policy is provided by the leading national massage therapist insurer MMIP.

Q Do you accept insurance?
A
Health Insurance is not accepted at this time.
