Frequently Asked Questions

Cancelation Policy

  • Remember, your appointment time is TIME RESERVED JUST FOR YOU.

  • If you anticipate missing your scheduled appointment with less than 24 hours notice, for any reason — including but not limited to illness, injury, a sick child, traffic, weather conditions without a severe weather warning, job-related conflicts, and family emergencies — please contact Jess immediately. This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule during that time. 

  • Cancellation without 24 hours or more notice prior to your scheduled appointment time, or "no-shows," will incur a full session rate charge invoiced to you.

Payment Methods

  • Cash or Check

  • Electronic Payment: Venmo, PayPal, CashApp etc

  • Online Credit or Debit card

Gratuity?

  • While not expected, any gratuity added during payment will be appreciated. Jess uses additional gratuities to help offset rental costs for studio space and for additional trainings and certifications.

Clothing

  • Thai Bodywork is a practice done fully clothed. It is recommended that you come to your session wearing clothes that you can move around in easily, like what you would wear to a yoga class or to the gym.

  • Receiving bodywork will often cause the body to relax, much like going to sleep at night, and thus you may get cold. Please plan accordingly and wear or bring a long sleeve or warmer pants and socks. Jess will have an extra blanket should that be needed.

Food & Drink before receiving Bodywork

  • The digestive system is one of the most energy consuming processes of the body: avoid eating a full meal within at least 2 hours of your session start time. It is better to be a little hungry by the end of the session. 

  • Drink more water than your usual on the day of your session. Hydration is key for fascia to be mobile!

What to Expect during your Session

  • Every bodywork session is different. Jess offers an individualized and intuitive approach, and each client will experience it differently.

  • Sessions begin with time discussing your client intake form (for first time visits) or with sharing what is pertinent in your body/mind/spirit that day. There is always about 30 minutes of time cushioned into the session duration for this connection time. Jess will listen to your speech and your body to learn how best to cater your session.

  • Jess may offer guidance or suggestions, but remember - she is not a doctor. Anything offered is merely for educational and self-growth purposes and it is up to you what you would like to do with those recommendations.

  • The duration of the bodywork portion of the session will include a variety of techniques: muscle compression, joint mobilization, assisted yoga-like stretches, energy work, fascial releasing techniques, and conscious breathing. You may be lying on your back, on your belly, on your side, or sitting upright cross-legged.

  • The only tasks you have as a receiver of Thai Bodywork are:

    • Surrender, melt, offer no help as Jess moves you around​

    • Breathe fully, deeply, and consciously for the entire session

Benefits of Regular Bodywork

  • Receiving bodywork regularly can creating lasting change for your life. Some possible benefits are:

    • improved circulation​ and blood oxygenations

    • deeper breathing and improved lung capacity

    • improved posture

    • increased flexibility & released chronic muscular tension and pain

    • better sleep and faster healing of injured muscular tissue

    • reduced anxiety, depression, and blood pressure

    • reduced mental and physical fatigue and stress

    • increased self-love and compassion

    • a more centered mind and body

Suggested Frequency of Bodywork

  • This will really depend on the person and their condition. In general, Thai Bodywork is not a one-time fix, especially if you have any ongoing circumstances. Most people find it difficult to remember good self-case, especially when they are stressed.

    • PROBLEM SPECIFIC: If you need focused work done, bodywork every 2 to 4 weeks will help you make progress quickly.​

    • REGULAR SELF-CARE: Bodywork once per month or so will help keep yourself in optimal shape (along with a balanced diet and regular exercise).

    • CHRONIC CONDITIONS: If you want to address an ongoing issue and make quick progress, you might benefit from a weekly bodywork session for a couple months, depending on the issue.​
