WHAT TO EXPECT

“Crafting the perfect massage or bodywork session requires transparency between you and your therapist. Of top priority: communication. Without some back and forth conversation between you and your therapist, you may not get what you are looking for, or you may be unsatisfied with the direction your practitioner takes.” -ABMP Body Sense Magazine, Spring 2013.

Here are ways you can create the perfect session according to ABMP:

Arrive on Time – Being there 10-15 minutes before the session keeps you from feeling rushed.

Relay All Appropriate Medical History – Allergies? Injuries? Medications? Surgeries? Speak up, for safety reasons. Your preexisting conditions could change your therapist’s protocol for your session.

Set Clear Goals – Have you explained the areas you wanted addressed? Your therapist isn’t a mind reader.

Be Open – Therapists strategies may not involve a direct path to your sore elbow. Understand that the body works in mysterious ways, and your knowledgeable therapist may take a more circuitous path to healing than you expect.

Be Quiet… – It’s your time; you paid for it. Relax and bathe yourself in the stress reduction and healing that bodywork offers.

…But Speak Up When You Don’t Like Something – Room too cold? Too hot? Pressure too deep? Too light? Music not your taste? Your therapist wants you to enjoy your time, so let him or her know when something isn’t right.

Book Your Next Session – Rome wasn’t built in one day, and your body may not be “fixed” in one session. Bodywork is cumulative and and often requires a regular regimen to get things just right. Before you depart, make sure you schedule your next appointment. Discussing a treatment plan with your therapist will help you reach nirvana.

Other information…

DRAPING & PRIVACY:  At Winning Touch Therapy, we allow our clients to dress down to their level of comfortability.  Please understand that when you are on the massage table, you will always be professionally and modestly draped with sheets and a blanket to keep you warm, which means that you will never have to worry about improper exposure of your body in any way, shape, or form.  We want you to be relaxed, so modesty is the best policy in our eyes.

LOTIONS:  We do not use oil, but rather a high-quality, “dual-purpose” lotion made by Biotone.  It works great for any massage, including deep tissue and hot stone.

CANCELLATION POLICY

We have a 24 hour cancellation policy. At our discretion, we will require a credit card to book/hold your appointment. Your credit card will not be charged if the appointment is cancelled or rescheduled 24 hours prior or you show up for your scheduled appointment. If you are booking your massage within 24 hours of the actual appointment, there is no cancellation and you will be charged the full amount of the appointment.

LATE ARRIVAL POLICY

As a courtesy to other clients, appointments will be automatically cancelled 20 minutes after scheduled start time and charged according to cancellation policy. We regret that late arrivals will not receive extension of scheduled appointments. In special cases, and when our schedules will allow, we may be able to accommodate a partial or full appointment. This will be at our discretion and only with proper, advanced notification of your late arrival.

SEXUAL MISCONDUCT

This is NOT a “Happy Ending” parlor.  Please refrain from any “happy ending” jokes, even if it’s just out of fun.  We don’t think it’s funny nor is it appropriate.  Any client who makes a therapist uncomfortable will be asked to leave immediately, will be charged the full amount for their session, and will not be allowed to reschedule in the future.  If you have any questions about these Cancellation Policies, please call 1 (785) 813-1483 or send an email to winningtouchtherapy@gmail.com.
