"The client / therapist relationship is based on trust, respect & communication." "These are not 'rules'; these are healthy boundaries - preventative solutions to possible or probable conflict."
Initial new client intake formis required to be filled out before the first professional licensed massage can begin. Please forgive and humor me on this formality. This is required by the state of TX to be done once every two years for each client by a licensed massage therapist. I have ensured that this form is entirely up to compliance with the required statements provided in the fine print. But what I have emphasized in larger, bold, underlined and highlighted print - is the brief & simplified information clients need to read and fill out to work in harmony with me and my service, which educates both the clients in how I work and informs me in what the clients needs and preferences are - being beneficial to use both. This clients form is completely private and confidential, as protected by mandated HIPPA laws.
12-hr Mutual Cancellation Policy (for in-call massage): Cancellations with less than 12hr notice require payment to cover 50% of the service's value scheduled; and 100% for appointments that are cancelled at or after the time of the scheduled appointment. Cancellation balances must be settled before any more scheduled appts. 24-hr Mutual Cancellation Policy (for out-call massage): Cancellations with less than 24hr notice require payment to cover 50% of the service's value scheduled; and 100% for appointments that are cancelled at or after the time of the scheduled appointment. Cancellation balances must be settled before any more scheduled appts. Hygiene Requirements: Both client and therapist agree to exercise sound hygiene principles for massage (i.e., be clean and free of body odors or acute skin conditions, including NOT having thoroughly washed w/ soap & water - after defecating or extensive/prolonged sweating). Shower facility is provided, if needed. Appointment Requirements: Late arrivals - without prior notice & approval - are subject to reductions in services requiring full payment, or an additional fee may be needed to extend the appointment time to complete the original entire session (up to 15min leeway may be given, but not more). MENTAL HEALTH REQUIREMENTS (Anti-Abuse Clause): Clients consent, accept & agree that business will be conducted logically & objectively - maturely & reasonably, with personal agency / accountability - without projecting personal, emotional, social (contrived), assumptive or 'implied' expectations. Clients will be treated as rational responsible adults with self-control and respect for boundaries; clients are responsible for explicitly communicating their wants/needs. Draping is done to your comfort level. The best way to receive a thorough and complete massage is with all clothes removed - during which the genitals & breasts can be carefully covered at all times (if modesty is a concern). Draping is optional, so if warmth & modesty is not a concern, draping does not have to be used.

Charges or collections will be commenced after 48hrs of return notification text/email/vm if payment of services and fees is not made by that time.
