What to Expect



We recommend you arrive 10 minutes before your appointment. A comfortable sitting area, is available for you as you prepare for your Signature Massage experience. We schedule our clients 15-20 minutes apart so that each client will experience the therapist’s undivided attention. We try to offer each client a reliable timetable. Arriving late may limit your massage time. Your appointment ending on time prevents inconveniences for the next client.


Whether you are coming straight from home or work, your experience is designed for your comfort and relaxation in mind. To promote a calming and relaxed environment, we request cell phones and other electronic devices be turned off. Upon entering the therapy room, you will be asked to undress to your level of comfort. For some, that means no clothing. Others may choose to leave their underwear on. Regardless, we utilize, and are required by law to practice proper draping. Throughout the massage, we only expose those areas in which we are currently working. We do suggest all jewelry be removed for your comfort.

Advance Bookings

We highly recommend scheduling your massage appointments in advance to ensure your preferred time and treatment availability. You may book through our online scheduling service available on our website or by calling for an appointment at 816-525-7171.  Ellen works six days a week and has a full client load.  She may not be immediately available to take your call, however, someone will return your call at their earliest convenience.  Generally, Monday and Tuesdays, we have additional office personnel available to receive your calls between the hours of 12-3 if you wish to talk with someone specifically; otherwise feel free to use our easy and convenient online booking system to schedule your appointment.
