Are you tired of receiving massages where the massage therapist didn't listen? Did they ignore your requests of only working on a few focus areas? Or spend too much time digging on one spot and not have enough time for a full-body? Did you leave feeling too sore? Or did it feel like someone just applied lotion for an hour? At Vita Nova Massage, I strive to create a relaxing yet therapeutic massage for clients needing stress relief, pain management, and injury treatment. With periodic communication, I hope to address your goals by blending a variety of techniques and tools. While massage therapy is not a cure or substitute for medical care, I always aim to do my best so that you leave feeling new!
At this time, I am a one-woman operation, as well as a new mama. I will respond to any inquiries or questions within 24 hours during business hours. The fastest way to book an appointment is through my online booking site. Thank you!
NEW CLIENTS WELCOME!
TO SAVE TIME, PLEASE READ THESE FAQ BEFORE INQUIRING:
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
I only accept cards, cash, checks from established clients, and FSA/HSA cards.
IS YOUR STUDIO ADA ACCESSIBLE?
Unfortunately, my location is stair access only.
DO YOU OFFER MOBILE MASSAGE OR OUTCALL CHAIR MASSAGE?
I only provide massage therapy at my office. I can offer chair massage to accommodate clients who cannot lay on their back, stomach, or side for long periods.
DO YOU OFFER COUPLES MASSAGES?
Currently, I am unable to because I'm a one-woman operation.
IS YOUR BUILDING SCENT-FREE?
No. Practitioners in the building, including myself, burn incense and use essential oils. I promise it is not overwhelming. When you complete your online paperwork, please list any allergies or sensitivities. I can then make accommodations in my studio.
DO YOU REQUIRE A DRAPE?
In Washington State, draping is mandatory. Some places offer a large towel for the body or small ones to cover private areas. In my space, I use a sheet and blanket. No exceptions.
HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
Due to regular clientele, I no longer have time to book appointments by phone, email, or text. If you have questions, feel free to send me a message and I will respond within 24 hours during business hours. A credit card is required on file to reserve a session and it is not charged upon booking unless you cancel without 24 hours notice or no show. Pleases respect my time. When scheduling, only acknowledge the service title duration. The duration listed next to the price includes a 30-minute buffer to thoroughly clean the studio between sessions. Bring a state identification card for verification and arrive 5-10 minutes early for a Covid-19 screening and to discuss any health changes and your session goals.
DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE ANY PAPERWORK?
In Washington State, I am classified as a healthcare provider. Legally, I have to collect your name, address, birth date, and information about your health. Your online health intake & consent forms need to be completed before your session. If not, your session may be shortened to accommodate this. All fields require an answer, or it will not submit. Before seeking massage therapy, always consult your doctor first, especially if you have a serious health condition, recent injury, or surgery.
