Must I be completely undressed?
To receive the best possible massage session, it is recommended to completely undress, especially if the gluteal muscles and hamstring muscles are wanting to be worked on. Client’s should feel comfortable with the amount of clothing they want to remove. About half of the clients who visit Knot Away Therapy leave their underwear on. This is completely up to you. You will undress and dress in the privacy of your massage room and will be securely covered by a blanket and a sheet during your massage session.
How much should I tip?
Gratuities are not expected but are happily accepted

What is included in the session time?
A massage session consists of the full massage time, which starts the moment hands are placed on the body. Additional time is included (which does not take away from your session) for you to dress and undress and time to communicate with the therapist to make your massage truly customized.
Can I receive a “happy ending?”
NO. Don’t even ask. YOU WILL BE REPORTED TO THE POLICE. This is a violation of Penal Code 647(b) Solicitation of Prostitution. Do not try to message me for these types of requests, I WILL report you. The only happy ending you will receive is me being happy that you are leaving my office.
Do I need to listen to birds or flutes during my massage?
No. There are plenty of other types of massage playlists you can choose from. Native American, Ethereal Music, Thunder & Rain, Harps, Enya (LOL!) Or you can bring your music and connect it to the speaker. I do listen to a lot of birds and flutes ALL. DAY. LONG. I will happily play anything that brings the clients relaxation and calmness.
