Frequently Asked Questions
There are a lot of questions that people have when visiting a new Holistic Healer. Find some of the most common questions people have below.
If something is still unclear, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Are you a Registered Massage Therapist?
No I am not a RMT. I am trained in Swedish relaxation massage. I offer a full body massage with the use of Reiki energy to bring a deeply effective relaxation experience to your body.
Do you offer mobile treatments?
A flat fee of $30 is charged for mobile treatments that are booked within Sault city limits.
How should I prepare for my first mobile treatment?
Here are a few tips to prepare you for your appointment.
Preparing your home for your treatment:
Please make sure an area of approximately 4 foot by 7 foot is available for the massage table to be set up properly. If you booked a sauna, I will need access to an outlet to plug it in. I will bring a short extension cord. If you booked a Sound bath, I will need approximately 3 by 4 foot area to set them up.
Drink plenty of water/ Eat lightly:
Massage will release toxins from the body and drinking water before and after the massage will help to flush them out. Being massaged on a full or empty stomach can be uncomfortable. Have a small snack before hand.
Be prepared to continue to relax after the massage:
Your muscles have some rebuilding to do. Your energy will have some realigning. Enjoy light activities only to avoid injury from strenuous movements. I suggest having a robe ready to put on after the massage to keep the body warm, to increase the benefits from our session. This is a great time to journal, paint, or take a bath.
Prepare your body with a bath or a shower:
Having a hot shower before the massage warms up your muscles for a deeper massage. It also can help elevate our mood.
Decide if you want to listen to music:
I will bring massage music with a portable Bluetooth speaker, or you are welcome to select from your own music collection what you would like to listen too. Of course, silence is an option too.
Be ready to communicate with me about your needs:
Feel invited to really get into the massage. You can make sounds, cry, sigh, or tell me directly if you would like more or less pressure. The more open you are with me, the better experience you will have!
Please plan for 15 minutes extra time for the appointment:
I bring liability and intake forms that need to be filled out, along with table / sauna / sound bath setup. Please review the forms below and contact me with any questions.
Do I need to fill out any paperwork?
Yes. There are two intake forms to fill out before the treatment. No need to some early for your appointment.
What are your Covid-19 protocols?
COVID-19 CAUTION PROCEDURES:
I clean and disinfect all of the supplies that will be brought into your home to ensure your safety from COVID-19. I will use a hospital grade mask for the duration of our visit. I sanitize the office and items used between sessions. You will be contacted within 24 hours of our appointment time to be screened for any covid-19 symptoms. I am triple vaccinated.
COVID-19 SCREENING QUESTIONS:
Have you travelled outside Canada in the past 14 days? Have you had any symptoms or been in contact with anyone who has the following symptoms: fever, headache, new cough, difficulty swallowing or breathing, runny nose, nausea or dizziness, fatigue or chills? Have you tested positive for covid-19 recently and need to be isolating?
Do you have a confidentiality policy?
All of our appointments are completely confidential. Any information shared between us during the appointment is completely private.
What is your cancellation policy?
Holistic Healing Algoma is a local small business that works hard to provide clients with professional and attentive care. Each booking made by a client is made to ensure your spot is reserved for one-on-one treatment. Because we are a mobile and in office service, appointments are made with travel time, loading time for equipment, and efficiency in mind. Last minute cancellations have a great impact on the businesses ability to service clients effectively.
Cancellation's made within 24 hours of appointment will be charged 50% of the appointment cost.
No shows will be charged the total cost of the appointment.
