To embody the amazing place we get to call home, this month’s Signature Essential Oil Blend and Botanical Foot Treatment will be Endless Summer, in a blend of Orange, Lavender, Lime and Spearmint. Feel free to choose this blend for your massage rather than a treatment blend from the menu if you like. It is also used in the Botanical Foot Treatment. The Botanical Foot Treatment is included in every 90 and 120 minute massage, as time permits (sometimes other areas of your body cry out for extra attention). It includes a Foot Peel to soften callouses and dry skin, a Sugar Shea Foot Polish and an Invigorating Dead Sea Fango Mud Mask, all cocooned in heated booties; followed by a Shea Butter Moisture Mask.

August is filing up, but there are still a very few slots open as I’ve extended my hours! If you haven’t scheduled your appointments, or were hoping to squeeze in another, go online and grab one! I also recommend watching your email for one of my email blasts notifying you of upcoming openings. These happen sometimes when clients have their babies, fall ill, or change their appointment. Just know that these appointments are gone in moments of sending the email blast, so jump on it right away and book online. If you haven’t already, I strongly suggest booking out, at minimum, a few months in advance. I’m experiencing busier and busier days, you can book appointments through September, to ensure you get the days/times that work best for you. You can always make changes for vacations, etc., with 24 hours’ notice; but this way, your appointment is locked in! Click here to schedule.

If you have already booked your appointments for August, I encourage to review them through your Massagebook account to make sure I gave you what you wanted. You can sign into your Massagebook account by clicking Here. You can edit any existing appointments if your plans have changed, and you can now pre-pay for your upcoming appointments, and add any enhancements you would like.

Now, the business at hand. I’m experiencing busier and busier days, so I strongly suggest booking for the rest of 2023. (Right now I’m only scheduling through September) If you want a regular, repeating appointment and haven’t requested one yet, text me at 831-419-7552 with day of week, time and frequency and I will enter it for you through the end of September. You can always make changes for vacations, etc., with 24 hours notice; but this way, your appointment is locked in! If you want to book appointments one at a time, you will only be able to do so through September. Click here to schedule.

I’ve had some clients tell me they are trying to refer friends in as clients, but I haven’t had any availability. I now have a handful of openings each month (I’ve lengthened hours), and they can book online through September.

Now is the time to think about the frequency you are seeing me. Do you need to come in more often? Do you need a longer session time? I can now do 2 hour sessions as of January. Do you need more time? Most of my clients were 2 hour sessions pre-covid. Do you need to add on a De-Stress back treatment (for physical stress), European Rose back treatment (for mental/emotional stress), CBD oil, Warm Arnica Oil, Parrafin Treatments, Arthritis Magnesium Cream or warm stones and coconut balm to your session? What day of the week do you prefer? What time of day works best for you? A good rule of thumb is that any chronic aches and pains should be improved and perhaps just starting to reappear a day or two before you come in again. If you are living with pain longer than that, you should be coming in more frequently. I have clients who see me weekly, every 2, 3 or 4 weeks. At a minimum, you should receive massage at least every 4 weeks to see lasting improvement. If you wait longer than that, you lose any cumulative benefit, and frankly, wastes your prior investment of money and time. Every four weeks is a maintenance schedule if you do not have any chronic pain at all. (Very few of you fall into this category!) Listen to your body. How long does your relief last? That will inform your frequency.

Also, consider visiting additionally to your massage schedule for a Sauna Wrap and Scalp Massage, Body Buff, and Bellanina Face Lift Massage. (Listed under Spa Services)

If the booking algorithm has automatically categorized you as a VIP, (an auto-calculation based on frequency of booking, how long you’ve been a client in good standing, $ spend per appointment, tip percentage, frequency of cancellation, frequency of appointments, etc.,) you will also receive advance notifications of openings. The algorithm also will block bookings if I reach a certain percentage of being booked up, so if you try to book, and get a message that I’m not taking new appointments, that is what has happened, and the booking system is holding onto whatever few openings I have for VIP’s. This is why it’s important to have a standing appointment with me, due to high demand, so you don’t get bumped out of the system. If the algorithm has you categortized as a VIP, you will not only receive email notification of openings, but other exclusive, fun perks! Like VIP Sundays!

Also, Massagebook has changed and improved the format of the Client Intake Form, so if you receive a link to update your Intake form online, please complete it. It wil be blank. Once you’ve completed the new format, when you receive notifications to update, the form will save your information, so you can just enter changes.

I’m also now offering an outcall Chair Massage Event for your next Hen Party, Bridal Shower, Couple’s Night, Family Gathering or Girl’s Weekend (or whatever other event you come up with!) Call to schedule, as I will book these outside of my regular hours if necessary. These events are 3 hours, which will address approx. 6 people (as many or as few as you like, depending on how you divide up the time), for $600. (In Santa Cruz County only)

If you have any contagious illness, fever or any upper respiratory distress (sinuses, throat, chest) and you have a massage coming up, it’s best to reschedule. Text me at 831-419-7552 to cancel or if you are uncertain, and we can come up with a plan of action. As bad as you may feel, a massage is contraindicated with these symptoms, and you will actually feel worse! Remember, I need a 24 hour notice so I can rebook your missed timeslot and someone else will be grateful to get your spot!

Please note, I am no longer offering gift certificates. Please make sure your gifter’s know not to book appointments for you. It wreaks havoc with the record and accounting system to book appointments for someone else. If you have outstanding gift certificates or credit, please try to use that by the end of the year.

I encourage you to follow my business page on Facebook. I post videos and informative content specifically for my clients. There are also sign ups available for Special Events! Stay in the know! I also have business pages on Pinterest and Instagram to keep things interesting!

Have you tried the Sauna Wrap and Scalp Massage? 60 min: Cocoon in a far infrared sauna blanket of charcoal, clay, magnetic and crystal layers of tourmaline and amethyst generating negative ions. While your body relaxes, your scalp is massaged with essential oils. Sauna Blankets boost mood, promote detox, ignite glow, boost immunity, reduce inflammation, improve circulation and burn calories. (Not available for Prenatal Clients or clients with diabetes or heart conditions) Wear medium weight, breathable loose long sleeved shirt, long loose pants and socks. It’s heaven. I’m addicted! You heat up from the inside, so a different feeling than a steam sauna.

Have you tried the Paraffin Hand, Foot, Elbow or Knee Treatment? A great add on if you are living with pain, arthritis or otherwise. Check it out!

Whew, I know that’s a lot of info this month!

Once again, happy August! I look forward to another year of taking care of you! I’m grateful for your loyalty, appreciate your business, and love being an oasis of renewal, health and respite in your life!

CBD Massage Oil Enhancement
$20 Add-on

CBD (cannabidiol) is the second most prevalent active ingredient in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC it is non-psychoactive. Recent medical trials have found many health benefits including relief of arthritic and neuropathic pain, anxiety, insomnia, and inflammation, By activating the pathways of existing cannabinoid receptors in the body, CBD topically warms your muscles, reduces tension, and minimizes pain. It is easily absorbed through the skin, making it a perfect adjunct for a therapeutic massage.

European Rose Back Treatment
$25 Enhancement

Schedule a 90 or 120 minute massage and add on a European Rose Back Treatment. Breathe in the aromatic fragrance of the French countryside as you surround the skin in a richly hydrating cocoon. This remarkable mud contains soothing Rose Clay extracted from the Provene region of France.
