Fees are the same for all modalities:

$75 for an hour-long session.

$40 for ½ hour session. Need a quick treatment for a stiff neck or other specific simple problem, this is the deal for you. (Home office only.)


I'm happy to offer shiatsu, massage, and acupressure at your location. Home, office, hotel -- even hospital and hospice visits can be arranged with medial approval.
