You are welcome here regardless of race, culture, body size, religious beliefs, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or age.
It is my honor to meet you, and your body where you are.
I stand firm in my support of the Modern Civil Rights Movement. There is no place in my practice or my life for hate speech.
If you would like to do more to support Portland based social justice, I encourage you to join me in making monthly donations to Brown Hope.
For first time clients, plan to arrive a few minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. This allows you time to find the office and talk through your intake form.
If you are a regular client please keep me updated. I need to know about changes in your medical history (injuries, surgeries, new medications, illnesses, etc.)
A 24-hour cancelation notice is required *. A "No-Call-No-Show" will be charged full price of service regardless of reason.
* NOTE If you aren't feeling well TEXT ME as soon as you can. I'll get you rescheduled with no penalty.
This is your time to relax and escape. When giving massage I (Kirstin) tend to be rather quiet. If you feel like chatting, I am happy to chat. However, most clients prefer to listen to the music or a podcast and relax, please feel comfortable doing so. Many massage clients even fall asleep.
I am always happy to get feedback and make special accommodations for clients. Please feel free to communicate with me at any point during the massage. Perhaps you would like an extra blanket or the music is too loud. It is my goal to make you as comfortable as I possibly can.
In the event of a Portland/Beaverton weather advisory we may need to reschedule your massage. I tend to make the decision to cancel clients if the local schools are closed. Massage Naturally (my studio) is located on the Sylvan Hill, if Portland has snow, I will have snow and ice at my office. I will not charge you a cancellation fee if you feel safer cancelling your massage on a “snow day” my safety and your safety are more important than a massage.
I do not ever provide massages of an inappropriate or illegal nature. This is a ZERO tolerance policy. If a client behaves or speaks in an inappropriate way the massage session will end immediately with full payment due.
Police may be notified.
Be aware my work is done on a padded mat on the floor. The ability to get on and off the ground safely and comfortably is necessary. If you have questions or concerns feel welcome to contact me.
