Notice

Unfortunately, I will not be able to offer couples massages given that I am the only masseuse.

Eventually I would love to add this to my services, but for the near future (especially this Valentine's season in particular) I regretfully advise you to enjoy this experience elsewhere.

I appreciate all the inquiries!

Policy & Scheduling

Policies

  • We require 24 hours notice if you are unable to come to your appointment (voicemail, email, call, or text). If proper notice is NOT given, you will be financially responsible for the appointment, and may pay by redeeming your Groupon, gift certificate, or by cash or card.

  • Because some medical conditions can spread or become irritated by massage, steam, or essential oils, your therapist has the right to suggest changes to the session or cancel the session, for your safety. If you have questions, you may email the therapist ahead of time or get written approval from your physician.

  • Please do not bring your children to your massage session, since it is time you have set aside to care for yourself, and interruptions will take away from the quality of the session.

  • If you arrive late, or begin late due to paperwork or restroom break, your session may be shortened to ensure that appointments following yours start on time. When this happens, you will be responsible for the full cost of the original appointment length.

  • Please understand that we will not be held responsible for lost or stolen items and we ask that you leave valuable items at home.

  • Our services are not sexual. Any inappropriate behavior will result in a canceled session and police involvement.

Scheduling

You can check your appointment or see available appointment day/times by visiting Appointments

Please arrive 10 minutes early to fill out a client intake form, so that the paperwork does not reduce your appointment time. A customized treatment will give you better results!

Late Arrival Policy: "Your late arrival will require that I end the session at the scheduled time, meaning your session will unfortunately be shorter today. I have reserved this time for you and only you and have other people scheduled after your time."

My Story

I’m born and raised in Central California; I attended Utah College of Massage Therapy (UCMT) in Salt Lake City in 2010 right after I served an 18 month mission in Phoenix, AZ for my church. I have over 815 hours of massage theory and technique training. I studied over 11 different massage modalities with over 210 hours of Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology education.

I worked for Massage Envy in Salt Lake City for 6 months before moving back home to California. I transferred to Massage Envy in Clovis, where I have worked since 2012. Knot Away Therapy was established in Aug 2014.

When I decided on opening my own practice, I knew I wanted it to be a haven for my clients to leave the stresses of work, life, and worries at the door. A new sense of restored energy, to feel refreshed, renewed and reset is how I want my clients to feel when they get up from my treatment table. Whether you want to relax, indulge, maintain health or alleviate pain...when you step inside, you leave your world behind for a while and are enveloped by the cozy atmosphere that awaits you, where you can unwind, take your time and know that you will be cared for to the best of my ability. Massage is what I love to do and I look forward to seeing you!

My Massage Style

My current practice combines both therapeutic (Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Sports) and relaxation (Swedish, Reflexology) styles to customize your massage and focus on your overall needs to find how my work can best support you as a whole person. Knot Away Therapy was created to relax, refresh and renew the body, mind, and spirit.

Whether you want relaxation, release of muscle tension, and rehabilitation after an injury or bringing the body/mind into balance, I can help you feel like the best you can possibly be. Together with open communication along with plenty of “feel good” gentle, firm pressure will ensure that not only your body will leave more relaxed but so will your mind.

Should A Massage Hurt?

Have you been wondering if a massage has to hurt to be effective?

If so, you are not alone. Many people believe that a massage has to hurt in order to be effective. Well it doesn’t! You’ll be happy to hear that the saying, “No pain, no gain” doesn’t apply to massage therapy. Sometimes the most effective massages are the ones that don’t cause you any pain. Something that feels marvelous, and it’s good for you too? It doesn’t get much better than that!

Deep Tissue Massage might cause some discomfort...

A deep tissue massage is when the massage therapist manipulates the deeper layers of your soft tissue. Soft tissue includes your muscles, ligaments, fascia, and tendons (it’s pretty much everything that isn’t bones or organs). Usually your massage therapist will use lotions or oil, and will work lighter at first, this is important, it helps relax the top layer of tissue and muscle, meaning less pain for you. Then the deeper layers of muscle can be worked on more easily and with less pain. This will feel much better and you will get better results!

Typically, deep tissue massage is recommended for those with chronic pain caused by tight muscles or injuries. Deep tissue massage can be very therapeutic because it helps with relieving patterns of tension that have developed over time and helping with muscle injuries. With a good deep tissue session massage will feel more relaxed after the massage if no pain was endured during it. It’s hard (nearly impossible) to relax if you are in pain, and muscle tension will release in a state of relaxation.

Deep tissue massage is not for everyone! You are not a wimp if you don’t like it. It is one of the more involved and intense massage techniques. Some people simply like the feeling of more pressure, and a firm massage isn’t always deep tissue. Just be sure to communicate with your therapist about what you prefer and need. Speak up your therapist will appreciate your feedback, happy clients are regular clients, and your therapist wants you to love your massage.

Pain versus Discomfort

Muscles naturally react to any sort of pain. When your muscles feel that your body is about to be injured the reflex to deflect the pain is stimulated. If your massage therapist is ever applying too much pressure, your muscles tighten together to naturally counterattack the force, and that is not a great way to relax. A massage is meant to relieve the tension of your muscles so if you feel as though the massage therapist is applying too much pressure for comfort, just ask them to use less pressure. Seriously, they want you to.

Don’t go into the massage thinking there won’t be any discomfort at all though. Pain and discomfort are two different things. People usually describe discomfort as a “good hurt” - especially in reference to getting a massage. When you experience pain during a massage, it is more than discomfort and could even cause bruising or injury.

Everybody has different tolerances for pain, so a massage that is painful for one person may not be painful for you. If you find that your massage therapist isn’t working between your tolerance levels for pain, then it’s important that you say something. Massages should almost never cause you physical pain and very rarely is it okay for you to be left with marks on your body afterwards.

If you are booking your first massage, you probably don’t want to start out with a deep tissue session. Ease your way into massage therapy and start with something less specific, like Swedish or integrative massage. Most therapists combine massage techniques and will try to give you the best massage for you.
