Ciao, I'm Antonietta, but please call me Toni. At Vita Nova Massage which translates to "New Life", I create a relaxing yet therapeutic massage for clients needing pain and stress management. With over four years of experience in the industry and having taken various continuing education courses, I know which techniques to use that will most benefit the client during treatment. No session will exactly be the same, but with communication from the client and myself, I hope to always address their goals. Please understand, I am not a healer, I am a facilitator. Your body does the healing on its own and it may require more than massage therapy, such as daily meditation, good sleep, nutrition, exercise, and stretching.
Situated in the heart of Hilltop, Tacoma is a grey wellness house called Saravida On the Hill; it's a beautiful and relaxing safe space filled with other caring independent therapists and practitioners. This is where I currently practice and at this time, I'm the only owner and operator of Vita Nova Massage PLLC.
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 Health Savings Account cards. I do accept PIP claims, but at this time, I’m not taking any new cases.
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 do have a massage chair to accommodate clients who cannot lay on their back, stomach, or side for long periods.
DO YOU OFFER COUPLES MASSAGES?
No, because at this time, I am the only owner and operator of my small business.
HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT? Due to an increase in regular clientele, it is highly encouraged to book online if seeking a same-day, next-day, or same week appointment, but a phone booking can be scheduled if you contact me via email: (please allow 24 hours for a response during business hours). A credit card is required on file to reserve a session, but it is not charged upon booking unless you cancel without 24 hours notice or no show. Pleases respect my time and the supplies and utilities used to prepare for your session. The duration listed on my booking site includes a 60-minute buffer for each session to prevent back-to-back sessions and to thoroughly sanitize the room, so only acknowledge the service title duration. Bring a state identification card for verification and try to arrive 5-10 minutes early for intake and Covid-19 screening.
Please complete your online health intake & consent forms prior to your session or you may lose some of your time. All fields require an answer or it will not submit. Always consult your doctor first, before seeking massage therapy, especially if you have a serious health condition or had a recent injury and/or surgery. If you have any allergies/sensitivities to essential oils, lotions, plants, etc. please let me know in advance (*the wellness center is not always scent-free as other practitioners burn incense).
I always have the right to refuse service and I do not offer refunds.
In Washington state, a drape is required by law and therefore,
I always use a blanket and a sheet (no exceptions).
