Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! As a Registered Massage Therapist, my treatments are covered by most extended healthcare insurance packages. I don't offer direct billing. You pay me directly after each massage and I provide an electronic receipt that you can submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. Please note: You are responsible for obtaining the details of your insurance plan.
New clients must identify as female, trans, and/or non-binary. For safety purposes, cisgender men are accepted by referral only. If you are a cisgender male, please contact me before booking your first appointment to tell me who referred you.
Absolutely! I provide both pre and postnatal massage through all stages of the pregnancy, including abdominal massage and breast massage for the pregnant or nursing parent.
There's free street parking along Dunn Ave and a Green P parking lot on the southeast corner of Queen and Dunn.
No. Your comfort is my utmost priority. I've treated clients who are in the nude to fully clothed and everywhere in between. I will work with you to accommodate any needs you may have regarding draping and body positioning to ensure you always feel safe and secure.
Your massage doesn't have to hurt to be effective. If you experience any pain or discomfort during our session, please tell me! I'm always happy to stop or modify your treatment to suit your needs. My motto is "Leave 'em better than you found 'em."
It's my controversial opinion that "deep tissue" isn't a real modality. It's a marketing term some people use to upcharge. If you're asking whether I provide firm pressure, I'm able to meet most women's needs, but this isn't what I do best. If you want someone to steamroll you, I'll refer you to a better-suited therapist.
I don't accept tips! The best way to show your appreciation is to recommend me to your friends.
If you feel sick, you MUST cancel your appointment, especially if you suspect a fever. Your massage will be safer and more enjoyable once you feel better. Please note the 48-hour cancellation policy still applies in the event of illness or emergency.
If you're more than 10 minutes early, please don't ring the doorbell as I may be with another client. There are lots of restaurants and cafes on Queen Street, as well as the Parkdale Library. I ask that you arrive just 5 minutes early for all appointments.
I use Biotone gel or Bio Origin gel on your body and Biotone lotion on your feet. I can also offer organic coconut oil, or you can request an oil-free Shiatsu massage.
