Housecalls and Fees
In-home massage is a safe, therapeutic health choice for anyone seeking to receive all the benefits of massage without leaving their home. Table, linens, oils, heating pad and music are all brought to your door essentially bringing the treatment room to you!
The only things you need provide are a few pillows to help position you comfortably and a treatment area of at least 7′ x 5′ in order to properly set up the massage table. Music will be provided (ipod + player) but if you’d prefer something specific you’ll need to arrange it in advance.
All the listed services are available in your home and I generally don’t need to know what treatment choice is made until I arrive. However, there are a few that require special supplies and equipment which need to be discussed in advance.
- Shiatsu/Acupressure can be performed on a massage table or on a special floor mat. I would need to know which one to bring. If the floor is preferred, it would need to be a space of about 10’x8′ to work.
- Thai massage is always performed on the floor and requires a bit more space. An area of approximately 10’x8′ would be best.
- Aromatherapy Massage uses essential oils of which I have many. I will bring a selection after a brief discussion of scent preferences.
- Pregnancy Massage uses lots of pillows so be sure to have plenty on hand as they’re too bulky for me to transport

GERIATRIC HOUSECALL FEES*
I offer a discounted rate for geriatric massage which uses gentle pressure and passive movements to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and increase mobility. This session takes place either in the client’s bed or wheelchair and is the best choice for older or disabled clients who have difficulty leaving home.
30min – $80
45min – $100
1hour – $120
*Fees are per person and include all applicable taxes.
I also offer the option to book my services for a block of time rather than by the hour. This option is best suited for the corporate setting where I might be offering 15 or 20 minute treatments to a larger number of clients. It can also work for small gatherings in the home (ie. birthday parties or showers) where shorter sampler sessions make the most sense.
I will bring all my usual supplies except for linens to an office setting and will work through clothing. In the home, linens will depend on how many clients I’m likely to treat and how long each session will be which can be determined at the time of booking. A single receipt will be offered for this option rather than one per treatment.
Half Day (up to 4 hours) – $450
Full Day (up to 8 hours) – $800
PARKING: We will discuss parking options before I arrive. If costs are incurred they will be added to the treatment fee.
PAYMENTS: Onsite, I accept cash, credit card, cheque or etransfer. You can also pre-pay for your appointment with a Visa, MasterCard or AmEx at the time of booking over the phone. An insurance receipt is always provided.
BOOKING: I do not accept online bookings for house calls. Distance, time of day, traffic and weather all need to be taken into consideration and can cause conflicts. You may contact me via phone, text or email in order to book your appointment.
SERVICE AREA: My service area is bordered by Lakeshore, Kipling, Eglington and Yonge. A travel surcharge may be added to visits outside this area using the criteria listed below. Please ask for an estimate when booking.
NOTE: A surcharge is only applied once no matter how many treatments occur at my destination.

20-30 km away – $40 surcharge
CANCELLATIONS: Please provide 24 hours notice for any changes or cancellations or the full fee for that visit will be charged. A phone call or text will reach me faster than email if that does happen.
