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 a 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 sole owner and operator of Vita Nova Massage.
NEW CLIENTS WELCOME!
I require only your name, email, phone number, and a credit card on file to reserve the appointment. Your card 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 an 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 and 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). At this time, my location is unfortunately not wheel chair accessible and I do not provide mobile massage, chair massage, or accept health insurance.
If you have any questions or have difficulty booking online, then you can schedule a phone consultation/booking by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org I generally check emails at the end of the day during business hours. It is highly encouraged to utilize my booking site as all my clients book online or book out their next appointments in person, so same-day, next-day, or even same week appointments may not be available.
I always have the right to refuse service or to terminate any session 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).
