GENERAL: It is starting to get cold there, so remember to keep warm and take care of yourself. Should you be sick for any reason for your upcoming session, please let me know so that we can reschedule your appointment. If you come to your session sick, I will unfortunately have to cancel  your session (you still  may be charged for your session) as well as cancel any remaining sessions for the day as I do not want to expose myself to others after the initial exposure.

The week of October 20th to 26th is Massage Awareness Week. During this week and the following week (ending on the 31st), massage sessions will be HALF PRICE! The only requirement is that you schedule your appointment online, that is it. So save your remaining sessions from your packages and book now.

ONLINE BOOKING: I use ClickBook for online booking  of appointments. For those who use Yahoo and have problems receiving e-mail notifications, please add ClickBookTeam@ClickBook.net to your address/contact list. This should resolve e-mail issues, just let me know when you have added it.

PROMOTIONS: A reminder that if the first (1st),  middle (15th), and/or  end (30th or 31st, one or the other not both)  of the month fall on the day that I am in Pleasant Hill, your session will be HALF OFF! The only condition is that you book your session online.

There are plans for promotions to assist with your health and wellness. 

I look forward to seeing you.
