FEES, CANCELLATION and SCHEDULING POLICIES, SPECIALS
Bodywork Beyond Massage is currently offering sessions of:
Distance Dynamic Rebalancing, Therapeutic Movement, Stress Reduction**
PLEASE NOTE: Telehealth sessions are here!! Sessions are available by Zoom/phone.
When we speak to schedule your appointment, we will spend a few minutes talking about why you are seeking treatment, your history, what my sessions can offer you, and which type of session I would recommend. For a more in-depth discussion about which type of session I would recommend, please see "Consultations" (listed below).
At this time, I am not offering any hands-on, in-person sessions. My physical office remains closed due to COVID
Although it may seem that a distance or Zoom session/class is missing the main component of therapeutic bodywork/movement, I ask you to "reframe" your thinking and instead of thinking of one of these types of sessions as "a poor substitute" for a hands-on, in-person, session, think of them as a different type of therapeutic experience, and consider the positive effect/benefits they can offer.
Please see other pages on this website for more information about the various telehealth sessions I offer - the basic categories are Therapeutic Bodywork (Distance Dynamic Rebalancing), Movement, or Stress Reduction. These include various forms of self- care, movement to reduce tension or pain, movement for the sake of getting the blood flowing, etc..
DISTANCE DYNAMIC REBALANCING $65, $85
OTHER TELEHEALTH SESSIONS $65, $85
CONSULTATIONS $40, $60
If your income has been markedly decreased due to the Coronavirus and you cannot afford the full fees above but feel in need of a session, please speak with me.
** ( See "Classes and Presentations" page for classes offered. Therapeutic Movement and Stress Reduction are also available in small group class format.)
DISTANCE DYNAMIC REBALANCING via PHONE or ONLINE:
$65 (35-50 minutes) $85 (55-70 minutes)
These sessions begin with either a phone or Zoom intake. We get off the phone/Zoom, and I proceed to do a Dynamic Rebalancing therapeutic bodywork session with you, as if we were together in my office. We conclude our session with a phone or Zoom check-out. There are many reasons why distance treatments work. Basically, it is similar to radio, television, or WiFi traveling across distances.
I recommend Zoom versus phone if I have not worked with you before/ if you have specific physical issues/if we may choose to incorporate Therapeutic Movement or Stress Reduction in our session.
I recommend the longer session if you have specific physical issues going on. Also, some people who do not notice much of anything with a shorter session notice more when they experience a longer session.
For more information, see "Telehealth Sessions: About" page
$65 (50 minutes) $85 (70 minutes)
These sessions can be either Dynamic Rebalancing (see above for session lengths), Therapeutic Movement, or Stress Reduction.
For more information, see "Therapeutic Bodywork", "Movement", "Stress Reduction" pages

My office is a nut-free, scent free, office. The laundry soaps/cleaning supplies I use are non-toxic and un-scented (except for one). On the day of your visit to my office, please do not wear any scented lotions/perfumes/hairsprays, and if you have eaten any nuts/nut products on that day, please wash your hands thoroughly before coming for your appointment.
As my work has changed over the past few years, I have integrated more concepts from my homeopathic and movement education trainings into all of my sessions.
PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM NOT SET UP TO TAKE CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS. I do take VENMO.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT MY SUNDERLAND OFFICE IS NOT HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE.
Cancellations, Late Arrivals, and Missed Appointments:
(Please see the separate page for COVID Related Policies and Protocols. In short, you will not be charged for a late cancellation if you are exhibiting any indicators for caution regarding possible COVID.)
My cancellation policy is: At least 24 hours advance notice if you find you need to cancel an appointment (excepting sudden illness), or you will be charged the full appointment fee.
If you know you will need to miss/change a scheduled appointment, please let me know as soon as you can.
I realize life can be hectic, and that unexpected things sometimes happen. If you are frequently cancelling appointments, we may need to make changes in how we schedule for you, or to re-evaluate if these treatments are appropriate for you at this time.
Appointments cancelled less than 24 hours before their scheduled time will be considered “late cancellations” and my policy is to charge the full fee. If you arrive late for your appointment, you will still be charged for the full session time, and we will work within the remainder of your scheduled time. A missed/forgotten appointment is considered a “late cancellation”, and a full fee will be charged.
Please understand that I have taken your appointment time into account when scheduling the rest of my clients.
(Please see the separate page for COVID Related Policies and Protocols. I now have COVID related forms that must be carefully read, and honestly, accurately, and fully filled out prior to an appointment.)
Before you schedule your first appointment, I will need to speak directly with you.
To schedule your appointment, please call (413) 665-4977.
If you find the answering machine on, please leave a message. Because of my schedule, I am sometimes not able to return calls immediately. If I have not returned your call within 2 days, it would be because of an answering machine glitch; please call again. You may leave a message if you have any questions about the work that I do, or about sliding scale fees, etc..
Contact me if you are interested in finding out about any specials I might be offering.
