Within the practice of Bella Salud Massage, Wendy Robledo is a licensed professional and held to the highest standards of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals. Massage Therapy is a profession in which the practitioner applies manual techniques, and may apply adjunctive therapies, with the intention of positively affecting the health and well-being of the client. Please note that a massage therapist can not diagnose or prescribe for medical conditions nor are they allowed to provide treatment for a specific condition without a doctor's supervision. The massage therapist is required to refer you for diagnosis and to follow recommendations of your physician.
Services are scheduled by appointment only, however, we do often have same day appointments available. To ensure that we are able to accommodate your preferred appointment times, we ask that you schedule with as much notice as possible. For your convenience, you may schedule online.
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. First time visits will require a client consultation and forms to be completed as well as enough time to change and prepare for the service. Arriving late will limit the time of your session. Late appointment arrivals will be responsible for full payment for scheduled treatment.
Appointment times are as scheduled and cannot extend beyond the stated time to accommodate late arrivals. Please be on time to your appointment.
Please provide at least 24 hours notice if you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment. This allows enough time to fill the time slot for others. If a client fails to cancel within 24 hours multiple times (2 or more), they will be asked to pre-pay for future services.
Massage therapy is not appropriate care for infectious or contagious illness. Please cancel your appointment as soon as you are aware of an infectious or contagious condition. If it is within the 24-hour notice period, the cancellation fee may be waived.
Prior to each massage session, the treatment plan will be discussed with you. At your first visit with us you will receive a copy of the massage therapy policies and will be asked to sign the consent stating that you have read the information, understand it, and agree to comply with the professional massage therapy policies and procedures. Clients who we have not seen for at least a year will also be asked to fill out this form.
Please note that at any time during the massage you may request a change in pressure, temperature, musical volume, or area concentration. The client may choose to: leave on as much clothing as needed for comfort, refuse any massage methods, stop the massage at any time and is free to leave; the therapy door is never locked. The client will always be modestly draped. Only the area being massaged will be undraped. The clients will be kept informed of the area to be massaged. Occasionally, an emotional response to massage occurs. If this happens, it is ok to express the feelings in our safe, nonjudgmental environment - or you may request privacy and end the session.
Requests for sexual activity will not be tolerated, will be viewed as solicitation, and reported to the proper authorities under the guidelines of the massage therapy policies and procedures. The client will not be rescheduled if this occurs. The breast and genital area will not be massaged under any circumstances. Permission will be asked before working close to these areas; otherwise, a professional distance will be maintained. Also, low back, hip & gluteal area will be massaged only with permission and can be worked through the draping if requested. Sexual interaction or discussion of any kind between the client and the massage therapist is NEVER appropriate. On rare occasions an involuntary sensual response to massage is natural and will subside.
While massage is beneficial to people of all ages, Bella Salud Massage requires children under the age of 18 have a parent or adult guardian sign a waiver and/or accompaniment by a parent or adult guardian for services. We are not able to accept appointments for children under the age of 16 years, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
At Bella Salud Massage, the client's trust and confidential information is the upmost priority. The client may or may not choose to talk during the massage. We are happy to listen to your conversation and share our professional expertise, although, we prefer to not discuss topics of a political, private or sexual nature.
It is the responsibility of the client to keep the massage therapist informed of any medical treatment currently being taken, and to provide written permission from the physician, chiropractor, physical therapist, etc., that the massage may be continued. The client must also keep the massage therapist informed of any changes in health conditions.
