If you cancel less than 24 hours, your massage will be paid for. You are welcome to reschedule and purchase another massage at that time.
Plan to arrive at least 5 minutes before your appointment is scheduled to start. Arriving late will limit the time of your service, thus lessening its effects and your enjoyment. Your service will end on time so other clients are not delayed.
For your convenience, The Body Loft offers online scheduling. You can schedule a service even when we are closed! Since we are not open every day and most days we are with clients, we ask that you use the online scheduling system.

What is a Reiki Energy Healing Session?
Reiki is a subtle yet powerful Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. It is administered by channeling the unseen “life force energy” that flows through us, flowing through the hands of the practitioner into the client’s body; activating the natural healing processes of a person’s body to support well-being on the physical, mental-emotional, and spiritual planes. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of experiencing healthy well-being. During aReiki session, the client remains fully clothed as the practitioner uses light touch with hand placements on the body, or no touch at all.
What is a Chakra Balancing Healing Session?
Chakra Balancing is a technique based on the Chakra system, involving assessing the client’s energy in specific places in the body where energy is concentrated as it moves through the system. Balancing a person’s energy leaves them feeling peaceful and rejuvenated, and has been beneficial in enhancing mental clarity and stress relief. During a Chakra Balancing session, the client remains fully clothed as the practitioner assesses and balances energy using their hands with light touch or no touch at all.
What is a Swedish Massage?
Commonly known as Western Massage, uses a variety of light and deep gliding stroke techniques, petrissage, effleurage, and percussion; facilitating blood flow, release of toxins in tissues, release of tension and stress from the body tissues, while promoting an overall state of relaxation, rejuvenation, and inner peace. During this session, clients will disrobe to their comfort level while being draped during their massage. Massage oils or lotions will be used on the body.
What is a Shiatsu Massage?
It is a Japanese word meaning “finger pressure” or “acupressure”. Shiatsu utilizes the fingers and palm pressure on the body, stimulating points called meridians to promote the flow of vital energy (known as “chi”) throughout the body, while removing blockages that may be related to illnesses; promoting and encouraging balance, harmony, and homeostasis in the body. Shiatsu bodywork may also include stretches and rotation of the arms and legs, in addition to other massage techniques. During a session, the client remains fully clothed. Clients are encouraged to wear light clothing that allows free movement.
What is an Integrative Massage?
Integrated Massage involves a variety of bodywork hands-on techniques (gliding, stroking, petrissage, finger pressure, tapotment, effleurage, etc.) focusing on the body’s connective tissue to enhance optimal function within the body and aid in the healing process. Integrated Massage is used in the management of pain, helps to improve joint flexibility, and assists in increasing oxygen to the muscles while helping to relieve fatigue, stress, tension, and anxiety. Integrative Massage promotes relaxation, renewal of energy, and an integrated re-set in the body in returning to a state of balance. During this session, clients will disrobe to their comfort level while being draped during their massage. Massage oils or lotions will be used on the body.
