FAQ's

What is your cancellation policy?

I understand that life happens and sometimes you are not able to make it to your scheduled appointment. If you ever find yourself in this situation please call as soon as possible. I do ask for 24 hours notice to cancel all appointments so that I may rebook another client when possible.

Any massage cancelled within four hours of the scheduled massage time has a $20 rebooking fee. Any client that does not call nor show up for their appointment is responsible for the full amount of the massage. Any client who books a massage with a gift certificate and does not show up forefits that certificate. If you are going to be late please call, if you are unable to make it in within 15 minutes from the start time of the massage your appointment will be cancelled and you will be responsible for the appropriate cancellation fee.


Where are you located?

My office is located at 19 E. Walnut Street in Columbia, MO.  I am in the basement of a two story brown and brick building, approximately .25 miles west of Providence Road.  There is a small parking lot in front of the building for your conveinience.  I am located directly next door to the Salvation Army. In front of the building is an outdoor staircase that leads to the basement level.  After going down the stairs, proceed thru the glass door and go left to Suite A. 

What should I expect?


Whether you are new to Massage Therapy or new to Fly Away Therapeutic Massage, your first time in can be a little bit intimidating! Don't worry! We do everything possible to make you feel completely comfortable. When new clients come into our relaxing setting you are asked to fill out a brief health history form so that we can better know you. Then your therapist will escort you to your treatment room and talk to you about the session you are about to receive. Make sure to talk about any injuries, sore spots, and problem areas you are having. Also talk about areas you would like avoided. Do you not want your face massaged or do you have ticklish feet? Just let us know and we will tailor the massage to best suit you! After a brief talk with your therapist, she will step out of the room. At this point you may undress, get on the table and cover up with the provided sheet and blankets. The table is gently heated and padded to provide optimum comfort. Your therapist will knock before entering and will then start the massage. If the pressure ever needs to be increased or decreased, speak up! Adjusting to the clients needs is what we do. At the end of the massage, your therapist will step out and give you time to change. That's it! It's a comfortable process. And it's okay to ask questions but please, respect me and my profession by not asking for an inappropriate service.

Do you have to go to school to be a Massage Therapist?


Yes. In the State of Missouri, Massage Therapists have to have at least 550 hours of professional training. Including biology, anatomy, pathology, and hands on training. Licensed Massage Therapists in Missouri are also required to pass a generalized exam. We take what we do very seriously and receive additional training every two years. We must uphold to standards set by the Missouri Board of Professional Registration in order to hold a professional license and carry professional liability insurance.

Is this going to hurt?

Well... that depends on a few things. Each person has different 'massage goals' that they wish to achieve. If you are looking for a Swedish relaxation massage then this will be pretty painless. However if you are looking to break up 20 year old scar tissue it may be 'uncomfortable'.  Sometimes a vigorous massage can leave you feeling sore for a day or two, just like a good work out. Drinking a lot of water to flush out toxins, ice packs and epsom salt baths can aide you in diminishing routine soreness.  If you need to be on top of your game for the next couple of days and specifically do not want to be sore, make sure to mention this to your therapist.



What kind of oil do you use?

I believe that the type of massage oil used is extremely important. I use fractionated coconut oil and organic Jojoba & Castor oil.  Aromatic essential oils are mixed in per request.
