first things first

  • all clients must read the consent and discretion policy prior to booking and attending their first session

  • it's super important that you read through this page because some of your questions will likely be answered! 

new clients + long time no sees

  • new clients (and anyone who hasn't been in for 2+ years) must choose the 75 minute new client session - this can be for either Somatic Security OR Somatic Intimacy

  • ​i do not accept new client bookings by text or email

  • NEW AUGUST 2022: INTAKE FORM requirement 

requesting a session

  • the best way to book is on this website

  • all appointments need to be approved 

  • if it doesn't work out, the request will be denied (seems harsh, but it isn't)

  • you will receive an email that informs you it was accepted or denied, either way

  • 24 hours prior to your appointment you will receive an automatic email confirming your session; please confirm your session with me! i love confirmations - you can text me, too

  • appointments can be booked up to 6 hours in advance (for same day) and no more than 40 days out

cancellation policy

 

  • all clients must agree to the cancellation policy which asks all cancellations to come with a $50 slot holding fee to be paid by venmo @foxella or otherwise agreed upon

  • if I have to cancel the session, I will offer $50 off or a free 15 minutes for your rescheduled appointment

communication

  • night-before or morning-of confirmation texts are preferred - expect that i will attempt to receive a confirmation from you. you are welcome to respond to the auto email you receive 24 hours in advance 

  • i never answer phone calls unless we have a scheduled phone call appointment

  • i rarely book sessions by text or email

  • honestly, i do not check my texts or emails on any regular schedule (i'm trying to get there)

  • the absolute best way to get my attention is to request a session from this website

  • i welcome inquiry emails - please expect up to a week to hear back from me :)

  • most emails and texts i receive are responded with this message: "best way to book with me is on my website!" so save yourself some time and just...book...something...

the space + accessibility

  • studio is located on the 2nd floor with 9 steps to climb from main entrance

  • bathroom available within 10 steps of space door

  • please let me know if you have accessibility needs - outcalls are available in the twin cities area (see map in requests)

parking and arrival

  • 730 E. 38th Street (the goodridge offices) is located within George Floyd Square

  • you can park on columbus Ave or 38th street

  • GFS IS SACRED AND SAFE - enter it with respect and dignity for those who are present

  • when you arrive it is imperative that you send me a text so I can meet you at the front door of the building to let you in

  • i am usually ready 10-15 minutes early - in that case i will send you a text saying: "I'm ready when you are!" - then you can let me know when you have parked and are walking over

late arrival

  • appointment time begins at the scheduled time unless otherwise communicated with me

  • your time starts at the scheduled time

  • lost time will be expected to be compensated but not necessarily made up for :(

legal considerations

  • i operate under regulations set by The MN Department of Unlicensed Complimentary and Alternative Healthcare Practices and the City of Minneapolis ordinances for massage establishment

  • i am required to offer you the state's client bill of rights

  • there are regulations on Prohibited Conduct that lays out guidelines for true, safe, and ethical practices

  • the State of MN does not have educational requirements to practice alternative care or therapies including massage, bodywork, Reiki, sex education and other services available here

  • the regulating agency for sex therapists and sexuality educators is AASECT; nearly all of my classes on sex and sexuality are approved courses taught by AASECT approved teachers - i have taken a variety of deep dives into a spectrum of erotic teachings from lots of sources within and outside the realm of accredited institutional knowledge 

considerations for time

 

  • cash and cards are accepted (small fee for cards on square)

  • cards are seen on statements as: sacred connection

  • tips are welcome, obviously ;)

  • 10% discounts are provided when 3 or more hours are paid for in advance

new client session flow

  • new clients can expect a 5-15 minute discussion about my philosophy, our boundaries, and session details - you will be on the table for 50-55 min

  • you will be asked about your experience and what brought you to the space

  • i will ask about allergies (specifically almonds), no-zones, and injuries

  • you will have ample time to inform me of anything you find pertinent and to ask questions

  • there is zero tolerance for any fluid exchange or body parts inside body parts - please don't ask 

ongoing work

  • you can expect the same basic structure of the new client session if you decide to see me on a regular basis

  • sessions must have at least 2 weeks in between unless otherwise agreed upon in advance

  • i never work on someone for 90 minutes - these sessions are for folks who have spent at least 3 hours in receiving somatic intimacy OR folks who need extra time to talk before getting on the table. either way - 90 minute sessions must be discussed with me personally prior to booking 

on tantra

  • although i am happy to talk about tantra (it is greatly respected in the space of my work) i am not always interested in the way the west has appropriated it into the new age spirituality industry under capitalism.

  • i am deeply connected to tantric principles, but i will not participate in the appropriation of it by upholding the teachings to a single lens of sxual practices as so many understand them today.

  • tantra is way more than sx

  • i request that you are at least aware of how the west has continued to appropriate ancient cultures for their own advantageous gain without giving credit, nor acknowledging the harm brought on people to even have the knowledge in the first place
