Payment - payment is due before the first massage begins. Pre-purchase massage packages must be paid in full before the first massage. I accept cash, personal check, PayPal and Venmo
Cancellation/Rescheduling - I require at least 24 hours notice by phone only (no texts or emails) if canceling your massage appointment less than 24 hours. If I receive a cancellation less than 24 hours, full payment is still due. Last minute cancellations and rescheduling are completely unacceptable. If you have pre-purchased a package of massages and I receive a less than 24 hour cancellation notice, your canceled appointment will count as a massage.
If your horse has never had a massage before, I require that you check with your veterinarian first especially if your horse has any current or recent illness or injury.
Please have your horse ready on time for their massage appointment:
1. warmed up with a 5 to 10 minute hand walk (please do not warm up your horse with a quick trot or canter on the lunge line - preferably hand walk - they shouldn't be too overheated)
2. groomed if dirty with dried mud or sweat or mostly dried off if wet and hooves picked
3. I require that you the owner, trainer or barn manager be present during the entire first evaluation and massage
Rates - my rate is $65 per massage (rate is higher if you are more than 75 miles round trip). Although you don't have to, I highly recommend doing at least a few massages in the beginning of your horse's massage therapy plan and I offer a 3 massage discount package; however the 3 massages must be used within the first 2 weeks or so in order to obtain the maximum benefit dependent on your horse's condition on the same horse only (3 massage packages cannot be used on different horses). Massages should be more frequent in the beginning of your horse's massage therapy plan and as their issues begin to resolve or completely resolve, then we can start to taper off the massages going longer in between but you should not go any longer than every 6 to 8 weeks at the most from one massage to the next regardless of issues
Areas served - all of eastern & central Massachusetts and Rhode Island
