Many thanks to Wilma on line magazine for spotlighting me and my business.

It was an honor to be featured in September’s issue as I embark on this new journey, my mobile practice.

I’m truly hoping to redefine what “mobile massage” means to my community and the massage therapy community at large.

You won’t miss a beat! My mobile studio has all of the comforts, amenities and
good vibes that my clients enjoyed in my previous brick and mortar spaces.

Here’s to women forging new ground and creating spaces to practice the work that they love in an ever changing world!

Taking a family vacation, a girls’ trip to Wilmington, a bachelorette pamper day? Why not have the massage therapy studio come to YOU!
As of today, I am open for business in my mobile unit. I need a flat area that accommodates a 26 foot vehicle and electrical access to plug-in and no HOA restriction on service vehicles.

Lulou and I took our morning walk and I set up my ‘park office’ on a picnic table in hopes of attracting some story tellers. It was a crisp, cool and windy morning. Like really windy 💨! No one stopped but I did get flyers explaining my project to a few folks. Then more 💨!! I decided that that was my sign to pack up and go.
Here’s your ‘sign’!

My mother in law, a talented artist, makes these amazing pieces of art!send her a picture of your pet and she will custom embroider their sweet face that you can use as a key chain!
She also does beautiful wooden spoons engraved with mermaids (or a bevy of other images) that she can customize with your name or someone else’s as a sweet gift! One of my clients recently purchased a set of four mermaid engraved spoons with her four best friends’ names.

So, miserable way to start the week.
First client (new client), scheduled for a 90 minute massage, just no-showed me. Two minutes after the appointment start time I send a pleasant text letting her know that if she was having trouble finding my place she could call or text.
She read it (had her ‘read receipt’ on) and did not respond. After several minutes I attempt to ‘check her out’ with the credit card that I require through the scheduling app in order to make an appointment (where it is explained in a waiver statement that the client must sign off on stating that they understand my cancellation/no show policy).

The cc is declined. 😳…not 😳.

I have asked her to do the right thing but the fact that she blocked the cc is a pretty clear indication that she realized AFTER the 24 hour window had closed that she wasn’t going to make it but wasn’t going to compensate me.

For those thinking ‘well you didn’t do any work, you didn’t give her a massage! Why should you get paid? Relax until your next client, take a longer lunch, get caught up on paperwork!”
My response:
1. She signed off on the policy
2. I was planning to make the $$ for giving her a massage and I cannot get another person on my table … that is income that I cannot recoup.
3. She signed off on the policy
4. She signed off on the policy
5. grrrrrrrrrrrrr

You hope.

A&P nerd alert! I walk the same park trail every morning with the dog. Months ago, at the base of a tree, in a pile of mulch was a dead squirrel. Lulu and I have been watching his body decompose with every day that passes. Today I desecrated his skeleton and took his femur and pelvic bone. So cool to see the way the head of the femur fits into the acetabulum just like a human skeleton.

Happy birthday America and thank you Tracey Armstrong!

Healthy lifestyles are so important. Stress can negatively affect your health. This is one of the reasons our Complete Wellness Membership includes a monthly massage with Hands in the Sands! Don't forget Valentines day is right around the corner.
Julie is wonderful! I am so glad that my first massage experience was with someone so talented, and who truly tries focuses on your health needs, and does not give you a “cookie cutter” experience. Each session is customized to you, I can’t say enough good things.
Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great day!

Thank you, Julie! My headache is gone, thanks to the power of massage and cupping, I feel so much better.
Question;
I am having muscle spasms along my rib cage where there are subacute fractures. When the spasm happens do I lean into it or away from it? Leave it alone? Rub it?
Thanks.
Lovely!!!
