With the increase of general cost of living, our rates occasionally have to increase slightly as well. We still strive to keep our rates approachable, so our massage rate will only be increasing by $10 per hour. 

Our base rate for table massage will increase from $70 per hour to $80 per hour and our Thai Massage Sessions will also increase from $80 per hour to $90 per hour.  Our Advanced Scheduling Discount (scheduling your massage at least a week in advance) and our Prebooking Scheduling Discount (booking your next massage before you leave your previous one) will remain the same.

Massage Space Update

I have a bit of news for you all. As of today, my family and I have put our condo up for sale. To reduce as much inconvenience to you as possible, I have required that any viewing requests be given 48 hours in advance. What this means to you is that if there is a viewing request during your appointment, I will contact you two days before to reschedule your massage. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but I will try to minimize it as much as I can.
