Appointments

We recommend that appointments be made in advance so that we are able to
accommodate your specific scheduling requests. A major credit card is required to hold
appointments. Arriving 15 minutes early allows
time to use the restroom, fill out a short intake form, and get some needed hydration in
your body before your massage.

Cancellation Policy

Due to high demand for appointments, we require a 24 hour notice when canceling an appointment. There is a 50% charge of services booked for cancellations made less than 24 hours and “no-shows”.

Late Arrivals

As always, please arrive on time for your scheduled appointment. In the event that you are a late arrival your massage may still end at the scheduled time in order not to interfere with following appointments.

Payments

Payment is due at the conclusion of your session. Alpenglow Massage accepts, cash, check, or credit card.

Gratuities

Gratuities are not included in the price of the service. Gratuities may be given at your discretion: 15% to 20% is customary and appreciated.

What to Expect

Prior to your first session at Alpenglow Massage, you will be asked to complete a Confidential Client Intake Form. This allows your therapist to learn more about you and your specific needs. Once the Intake is reviewed, your therapist will leave you in the treatment room while you disrobe. Many clients undress completely; however, you may simply undress to your comfort level.

Make yourself comfortable on the massage table and cover up with the sheet and blanket provided. During the massage, only the part of your body currently being worked on is undraped. Throughout the session, talking is acceptable; however, silence may be more beneficial. Allow yourself to learn about what is going on in your body by breathing deep and listening to your muscles. Let go and enjoy your massage.

At the conclusion of the massage, your therapist will notify you when she is leaving the room. Please take a few minutes to absorb the therapeutic experience. Once you are fully dressed, your therapist will meet with you to conclude the session.

(Assuming you arrived on time for your session, please keep in mind you will get the full time allotted for your session.)

* A special note: Massage can stimulate your body’s processes. You are encouraged to drink plenty of water after your massage to help flush toxins out of your body and replenish what your body will be getting rid of.
