How early should I arrive to my appointment?


There is no need to arrive any earlier than your scheduled appointment.  Arriving early will not result in a longer session.  In addition to the service time schedule we also allow time for any forms that need to be filled out, assessments, undressing/dressing, and checking out.

We are here to help you figure out a plan that is best for you by discussing your massage goals and budget for self care.

What is your cancellation policy?


We ask that you give us at least 24 hours notice of your plans to cancel or reschedule.

Cancelling or rescheduling your appointment under 24 hours will result in a 50% service cancellation fee.

Masks are optional at The Resting Nook.  If you are feeling sick, this includes severe allergies and sinus infections, please reschedule your appointment for when you are in better health.  Showing up sick to your appointment will result in a cancellation and a full payment for the session will be required.
