Mobile massage therapy means the massage therapy appointment is delivered to you at your home, business, or at a social function you are a part of. We bring the massage table, linens, oil/lotion, top cover, music for relaxation, and professionally licensed and insured massage therapist to you, set up the equipment (5-10 minutes) deliver the hour or hour and a half massage therapy services pre-ordered, and break down the equipment when the appointment ends (5-10 minutes). You are not deducted from your scheduled time any of the break down or set up time, but are expected to be at the appointment booking location when the massage therapist arrives on time (10-15 minutes before scheduled time). The only requests we make, is that the massage therapist be able to wash his or her hands and arms up to the elbows (we have our own soap and towel to dry), have enough space to set up the equipment (table space of about 6 ft to 8 ft, and also have this time free from distractions of pets, kids, roommates, family, cell phone or land line ringing, etc. You must also be hydrated, have your intake form filled out and signed, and not be sick in anyway, such as nauseated, high-fever, or need to have a spit bowl to spit in (one client did this and it was decided this is not acid reflex). A runny-nose or congestion could be acceptable as long as you have a history of allergies, and don't sneeze on the massage therapist or have a high fever. If you have always been hot temperate, it is unfortunately not going to be possible to provide mobile massage therapy to you (if you get hot, need the top cover off even with AC on, or sweat or show flushed red coloring in your face and neck).
If you have never had a massage before, you are not alone. Some people get the wrong idea and think it is only for pampered rich people. I assure you it is not just for rich people, although they can afford to buy massage therapy sessions more frequently than consumers getting paid less than the median pay of their city demographics. Our massage therapists are professionally trained, licensed, and insured. We don't take risks in your health and only listen to your and your reactions to tune the massage pressure, suggest added massage therapeutics, or modalities that could better address any issues you need.
In rare cases, some consider it a profession of ill skilled masseuses with no other talent and having been brought to the states to flee danger and having to pay off high debts to their human smugglers to be released and willing to fulfill requests of sleezy perverts. Let it be known that any signs of sleezy perverts booking an appointment on the phone, such as asking repeatedly if the massage is a full body massage with emphasis on full body, or asking if anything extra after all additional modalities and therapeutics and cost have been explained is presumed to be a sleezy request and that person's number is blocked.
It is important to inform your massage therapist of any health conditions you have or changes since completing the health intake area of your client consent form before your massage therapy appointment. Any side effects you have from a massage, after accounting for massage modalities you are allowed to have based on your health, could be: tired, energetic, relieved of pain, less stressed, better sleep, dark red spots if you have non-traditional cupping done, relieved congestion after being in the non-contagious phase of a cold, relief from a headache, better range of motion, increased healing from workouts or minor joint aches, enhanced pain relief from arthritis, increased metabolism, better health and wellness choices in life, and more. Rarely, someone could become sick if they have an underlying condition or aren't hydrated as well as they thought. This could mean becoming dizzy, nautious, or feeling body temperature increase. This only happened once to me when a young woman didn't know she was pregnant, and found out with deeper pressure moving blood from her hamstrings to her lower abdomen while face down (prone).
Our massage therapy prices are very reasonable. We do more work than a client going to a massage spa or clinic to have a massage. Like at the clinic, we can't book an appointment unless a hold fee is given, this way the opportunity cost of having had that scheduled time booked with a client when the appointment is unexpectedly cancelled is not less than zero. Because it takes time to set up the supplies, to wipe down and sanitize after appointments, to drive to the location and spend resources, as well as look up any possible contraindications to massage and carry the 20-30 pounds of supplies for each appointment, we do request a small deposit up front, should the appointment be cancelled. This fee is non-refundable and $20 or 20% the cost of booked service if outside Corona, CA. An additional $5 for every 10 minutes outside of Corona, CA but less than 25 miles outside of Corona, CA. We realize the median pay of the location we operate out of is about $40 hour and we accommodate most massage sessions to be about 3 hours of that pay based on how often a person gets a regular massage and whether there is parking available, the neighborhood is safe, there aren't more than one flight of stairs, and the needs of the client.
We do require you to shower before your massage session, for health and sanitation reasons. If you chooses to shave is up to you, we don't charge more if we have to use more lotion or oil on you. Actually, if you do shave, and your hair is coarse enough to feel like sand paper after waiting a day or two after shaving, we can't use our forearms to give deeper pressure as it would irritate the skin of our massage therapists. We would actually prefer if you didn't shave, but please shower and be ready and not in the shower by the time of your appointment. This would make our massage therapists feel uncomfortable and decline services due to feeling unsafe. You would also lose the $20 non-refundable fee if not on time. Or have the time deducted from your massage appointment up to 15 minutes then the non-refundable fee is applied.
At this time we currently accept credit cards, FSA/HSA spending account credit cards and zelle via a bank to bank transfer. We don't accept checks or cash for payment for services. If you would like to leave a gratuity with cash that is greatly appreciated as it supplements our income and allows us to keep competitive prices. Recommended gratuities are 15-25% of the market value for massage. Which is 3 hours of the median pay of your city. In Corona, the median pay is $40, and so the market rate is $120 for mobile massage therapy. If you would like to book a massage for someone you know, like a nurse, you can pay for them and set up all the required time, appointment, verify he or she can be ready for the massage and not be distracted, and also fill out and sign his or her consent form with health history so as to recommend massages and therapeutics that won't endanger his or her health.
We did take Spa Finder gift cards in the past, but currently don't accept them as a form of payment. When we do start accepting them, we will require each client using the Spa Finder gift card to send us a photo of the card with the card number, expiration, and possible pin or security code, and a copy or photo of the client's photo ID or driver's license within CA only. This is for safety. If you pay with a credit card we don't require your driver's license photo copy or ID photo copy.
We understand you want to pay with cash. We don't know what your personal reasons are for doing so. But it is not safe for our massage therapists to carry cash on them, this invites criminals to call and book incorrect addresses, then sneak up, attack, and rob our massage therapists, or follow a massage therapist with a car logo on his or her car to a residence and do the same. Cash is not permissable. I am sorry, but you can buy a visa pre-pay card at any convenience, or grocery store. You might have to pay more or the massage therapist, but our massage therapists are independently owned and operated business operators who are only booked appointments through this site through connections of The Massage Negotiator. We don't want to endanger anybody's life, so we do not ever accept cash. You can tip gratuity with cash, but not pay for services. Sorry for the inconvenience
Yes. Massage has been proven to help alleviate the pain associated with minor and acute headaches. A relaxing, cranio-sacral massage, combined with cold marble stones, peppermint aromatherapy, and a foot scrub would help minor headaches. If you have consistent pain, that gives you blinding spin wheels in your vision and intense pain that throbs, then it is recommended you take whatever it is you have been taking for pain relief, feel better, than get a massage to help detox the hormones and pain toxins giving you the painful headaches. Massage helps circulation improve which helps clean out old cytokines in the body from inflammatory immune cells attacking whatever triggered your headache. Pulling blood away from the body and especially the scalp will help your headache go away. Adrenals, caffeine, intense light, internalized anger, etc. can all be triggers for a headache. If you arrive in intense pain, we won't be able to massage you. But if you are in mild pain that has subsided from intense pain, then a massage would help you.
Yes. Swedish, Sports, side-lying (prenatal style), massage gun, non-traditional cupping, and hot/cold stones will all help you to recover faster, increase your range of motion, increase immunity, detox your muscles of inflammatory agents, relieve pain, and help you walk better. Massage of your aches directly pushing towards the gut and heart will help push out the toxic pain agents. Cupping will help your circulation and improve immunity. The massage gun will increase range of motion and stimulate your lymph network to detox the muscles and muscle fascia aching, and cold stones could help with pain and circulation in combination with hot stones. Minor stretching and IASTM tools to help with tendon fatigue or limited range of motion due to muscles attached to the tendon and aching will also improve range of motion and help you walk better.
If you are a high risk pregnancy, then your doctor told you that because you fit the criteria of: being older than 34, your first child over the age of 35, history of repeatedly painful menstruation, having had invitro fertilization to become pregnant, a history of miscarriages, diabetes, heart condition, or other in one or more combinations. As long as you can prove that you have frequently received deep tissue or deep pressure massage before becoming pregnant, have enough dense muscle layers to have deep tissue massage, have adhesions in those deep layer tissue layers to have deep pressure break up those adhesions in your muscle fascia and muscles, and have a doctor's note stating that you are able to have deep tissue massage, then you can have deep tissue massage. but if you are within the first trimester, or showing signs of lethargy and limited movement and mobility while pregnant than you need to notify your doctor and get approval first.
Many people with fibromyalgia, have different or similar symptoms from nerve dermatomes around the surface of their body flaring up in stressful times. Massage will help with your fibromyalgia symptoms and is recommended to help with your stress, improve circulation, increase immunity, and help with your sleep routine. If you are having a flare up, you are recommended to not get a massage if even the touch of the clothing you wear or covers causes pain. Regular massage will benefit your response to flare ups and reduce the frequency or intensity of your flare ups from fibromyalgia. Some medications for fibromyalgia can lower your immunity, and it is recommended you be hydrated and not around people who could endanger your immunity while getting a massage. Massage will help with your stress management and relaxation which will help your fibromyalgia symptoms. Many people with fibromyalgia get regular massage to manage their fibromyalgia. You could get a traditional Swedish massage, add hot stone therapy or cold stone therapy, or get myofascial massage to help with the muscle fascia realignment. Note that myofascial massage therapy requires you be hydrated because it doesn't use lotion or oil, but works the muscle layer by layer in a cross fiber friction manner to break up muscle adhesions in the muscle and muslce fascia. This helps stimulate healing and also helps with fibromyalgia nerve dermatomes in the surface misfireing pain signals to the brain, by increasing nerve route ciruclation and body to brain activity.
In this fast paced, over-achieving space, where every body wants to take the reigns to you and run you around, it can create a negative mind set that your body wants to speak up and outward against, be it in the break room talking about an unruly colleague or customer, or at home with your spouse venting negative energy, or even with other drivers amplifying the negativity you have collected within you. Massage will help with your mental well being by allowing you a person to speak to and vent any frustrations you are having at work, home, or online that are causing you to be blinded by how it is affecting how you react or treat others. By getting a monthly massage or more frequent massage, you allow your body to welcome healing and your mind to relax, and this could mean letting go of your anxieties or frustrations because everybody wants to be understood, and massage therapists are great listeners who understand you. Anything that happens involving your personal life or health is protected by HIPPA and HIPAA. It takes a court order to have any information given without your request to any requesting parties. So feel free to talk to your licensed, and well trained massage therapist every massage session. If you have a complaint about your massage therapist not being a good listener or talking about her or himself more than you would like, let us know so that we may fix the problem. But be assured your appointments are always secured and protected. Your health and sanity is where healing begins and improved health. Remember this every time you get a massage from one of our professionally trained, licensed, and insured massage therapists.
We did a google/bing search for 'median pay in corona ca' and found the best site that said the (5/3/2020) median pay is 77k a year in Corona, CA. The average pay is much lower at 28k, but the average is not a reliable number as it accounts for undocumented workers, students, underage workers, part-time social security recipient workers, and extremely wealthy business owners among a few, which distorts the real count of what the hourly pay is for 'most' of the townspeople when aligning the hourly pay of taxpayers from lowest to highest, pick the middle value and that is the median. The average pay in Corona is 28k, a lot less than 77k, and at least half or more people in Corona, CA make at least 77k a year so the median was chosen. And actually, less than half the people in Corona, CA make 28k a year since it wasn't the median value because there are 160k people in Corona, CA according to the 2010 US census and for 80k of people to be making at least 77k a year and on average the pay is 28k shows that we could have a lot of low paid workers but as far as the top half of earners the lowest paid earners could all be reporting no income for all we know or investing heavily into their businesses with little return or losses. I don't go in to that much depth in digging for data in the Census, but the income is skewed to the right if the left with a long tell to the left and the hump to the right as the median pay is to the right of the average or mean value for annual income. Since the median pay is 77k a year, with 52 weeks in a year, 5 days in a week and 8 hours in a work day, the calculation is 77000/52/5/8= $37/hour as the median pay. The market rate for one hour of massage is therefore 3x37=$111 for Corona, CA (we use 3 hours to allow for preparing all supplies, delivering service, time of service as 1 hour and driving back and cleaning all supplies from hot stones, cups, massage gun, and all linens and top covers and disinfecting the massage table ). This is not the price you are charged for massage, but is the amount that gratuities for supplemental income to our massage therapists is expected to be calculated at 15-25% based on how well you thought your massage therapist was, if you would rebook with him or her, if you would recommend him or her, how you feel after your massage, were your massage goals met, did you like or get along with your massage therapist, did you expect more, or were your expectations much better than you thought. Gratuities are always appreciated.
Up to 25 miles, unless there are other massage providers in our network able to drive more than that because he or she lives closer to the requested massage site.
It depends on your massage therapist. We prefer relaxing spa music, but any offensive music that degrades people or discusses inappropriate language during a massage that makes the massage therapist feel uncomfortable or offended is not allowed.
Right now an hour massage is $60 and an hour and a half is $90 if you are located in Corona, CA. Any additional massage therapeutics are as follows: hot stones cost $20, cold stones cost $20, non-traditional cupping costs $20, aromatherapy is free, biofreeze or CBD pain relief balm is $10, massage gun is $20, and body scrubs are $20 per area.
All customers must fill out their consent forms before having one of our massage therapists massage him or her. This is so that any health conditions you have are observed and your massage appointment is planned according to modalities and therapeutics that are not contraindicated to your health and so that you benefit the most from your massage. You can find this form at: https://www.jotform.com/janiscorona/new-customer-registration-form
We do not offer escort services, this type of business is no where on our menu of services, there is nothing related to our business that would suggest we did offer this service to the public, we are considered a health and wellness business. This type of question is also considered sexual harassment and will be handled accordingly. Would you ask the cashier in the drive thru of any fast food restaurant if they offer escort services? Or your waiter at a fine dining restaurant? How about the police officer at the desk if there are any escorts they know of to send your number? Maybe you would, and we are not professionally trained to handled sociopaths at this time or ever. It hasn't been worked or written into this business model. Your number will be blocked for offensive behavior, specifically sexual harassment. If you google 'escort' or any other non-professional massage services and this business shows up, please email me at email@example.com to have our public relations department handle the source. It is not our intention to mislead anybody into sexually harassing any of our members or service providers due to ignorance or an internet search engine falsely misleading any sociopath.
For many years, females have been considered the lesser gender, abused, manipulated, never allowed to own land, responsible for maintaining the house and taking care of family members before herself until she dies or everybody else dies. It has been a socially expected norm of society. Females have been considered immoral for seeking an escape or running to school to better themselves and work in the community to be self reliant and not need any man to depend on who could possibly abuse her at home and disrespect her publicly or in the house behind closed doors. We are now in the year 2020, and many men think they are helping women by offering them money to perform sex related acts or services to escape their abusers and this is not a way of helping women who are trying to escape their abusers. The 1964 Civil Rights Act includes females to live without harassment among other categories of people by age, religion, sexual preference, disability, etc. To help a woman escaping her abuser would be to encourage them to seek professionals who can guide them to get educated, have the means to sleep and eat safely, and feel confident in their intelligence and living in a community that accepts them. Even in the workforce, offers by males to women have been to demoralize them or to offer promotions or higher pay for going out to dinner with them, dating them, etc. and then terminating employment when things didn't work out. This type of behavior also effected other employees who were passed up for promotion or not able to get work done if that unfairly promoted/hired female that wasn't trained to do her work or the male that hired/promoted the female in some combination created a hostile work environment or had people not producing work and eventually lawsuits by federal agencies representing workers' rights draining the business funds for immoral actions. If we define sociopath as that person who befriends people based on personal intentions and motivations to deceive those same people or see them caused harm in some manner that invokes satisfaction in the person invoking those actions upon said people, than we can assume that any person asking for escort services from a business made up of females providing services other than massage services is a sociopath, and needs to be handled accordingly. We are not professionally trained in handling sociopaths nor do we put aside our selves being offended to provide beneficial health and wellness services to any people who offend or show signs of being sociopaths. We only know where to go to start the sexual harassment law suits for violating our rights in providing our business service to the public. It starts with a phone blocking, if continued then a personal restraining order against offender that is public against the name, address, phone, and birth of the offender. Our goal would be to level the playing field so that any sociopath who offends any of our members or service providers has less resources and rights to conduct their offenses against any other community member, and sometimes that requires taking as much assets as possible from said offender, which is normally much more than said offender is offering for immoral actions of any of our service providers.
Please visit: https://www.eeoc.gov/publications/facts-about-sexual-harassment for the definition of sexual harassment.
They define sexual harassment as:
"Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.
Sexual harassment can occur in a variety of circumstances, including but not limited to the following:
CAMTC COVID-19 Bulletin #17
Dear CAMTC Certificate Holders:
CAMTC has been closely monitoring and reaching out to the Governor and the Administration for updates on the Stay in Place Order and where massage fits into the phases of reopening. Today, May 28, 2020, CAMTC received a message from the California Director of the Department of Health Care Services stating the following:
Although massage therapy has not been addressed specifically in State level announcements, the parallel with hair salons and barber shops that are providing one-on-one care for individuals seems appropriate. The precautions that were outlined regarding screening clients for illness, use of masks/face coverings by the massage therapist and client, staggering appointments so there is not contact between clients, etc. should be followed. Exceptions may be made by local health departments.
The State administration is therefore allowing massage to take place in the State, but the State guidelines for hair salons MUST be followed. Those guidelines can be found here: https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-hair-salons.pdf. Additionally, local county health and safety guidelines must also be followed, which means if your local county does not allow massage to occur, massage may still not be authorized to take place in your local jurisdiction. This is because while the State is generally allowing massage to occur, it has also acknowledged that cities and counties have the authority to impose stricter restrictions than the State.
The health and safety of Certified Massage Therapists and their clients continues to be of the utmost importance to all of us. So while you MUST follow the health and safety guidelines provided by the State and your local jurisdiction, we also urge you to consider following even stricter protocols during this unprecedented time. For some suggestions of recommendations for additional massage specific requirements, please see these guidelines provided by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards: Guidelines for Practice with COVID-19 Considerations. Please note that these guidelines were created by FSMTB, not CAMTC, and you are not required to comply with them; they are merely provided here as an additional resource.
Please remember that there are a lot of questions and unknowns related to COVID-19. By this message, CAMTC is not making any statements about whether it is or isn’t safe, risky, or appropriate for CAMTC Certificate Holders to provide massage at this time, or for clients to receive massage at this time.
Be well, stay safe and remain informed.

Your right to worry about your congestion while face down. This is actually very normal for clients (about 1/3 of my clients) to get congested while face down. This is due to having more work done on the back, your heart rate slowed down, and fluids stimulating your lymph network, a connective structure in your body that works by using the rhythm of your circulatory system to eliminate wastes from the body, and also many clients are having deeper tissue work to the more dense muscles other than the superficial top layer as well as having their sinuses pressed in. I have been asked many, many times by clients why they get congested and some get a runny nose face down. It has to due a lot with detoxing your body and stimulating the lymph that activates the immunity within your body as well as having your sinuses pressed in. More people have this happen when they have an hour and a half or 90 minute massage or deep tissue. Some people just get congested because they are dehydrated. This is a normal side effect of massage for most clients. Now, if you have a temperature and your nose is runny or your congested before your massage, then it is a symptom that can't exclude you from 'not having COVID-19' and you are recommended to reschedule or take your regular allergy medicine if you have been taking allergy medicine over the counter before. You must also not have a cough nor a hotter than normal body temperature with obvious heat emitting from your body, sweating after being out of the sun, or reddening of your face. I am currently only taking clients who want a mobile massage and have had regular massage therapy for their wellness or health, know exactly what areas to focus on, and aren't first time clients to massage therapy unless you were referred by a client I massage. I also cannot accept massage from any of the clients I have worked on while at Massage Envy in Chino Hills or Massage Heights in Chino Hills due to the contract signed with them to not compete and it being less than a year.
Currently, if you have a doctors note prescribing massage therapy to help with healing from trauma such as a recent car wreck, surgery from a tendon tear, surgery from a fat removal procedure considered cosmetic, stress or lack of sleep from your counselor or psychologist, or any doctor for other reasons such as life changes, lymphatic drainage, fibromyalgia, etc., then you can get your massage therapist to massage you with all else being equal in health and not having COVID-19 symptoms. Also, you can check out your local physical therapists or chiropractic clinics to see if they offer massage therapy, and get a massage there and possibly a visit to the chiropractor for an adjustment or the physical therapist for recommendations on exercises to improve your pain patterns. They are often cheaper in price, but more noisy from the sound of the chair being constantly hit when the doctor of chiropracty adjusts 10-20 patients or the temperature could be cold, or the public restrooms might not be available, and you also do not need to even see the doctor if the clinic offers massage therapy services, you can just book your appointment. Some health insurance covers the clinic cost, gratuities are always appreciated to supplement the massage therapists income, and the clinics do normally offer prices about 2/3 the price of what you pay to get a monthly massage at one of the top franchise and corporate massage therapy providers, such as Massage Envy, Massage Heights, Massage Green, Elements Massage, Hand and Stone Massage, and so on. Try them out and you will get a massage and still think it is great for your regular maintenance but would rather go to a facility much more catered to massage therapy serenity and peace and quiet to enjoy your relaxing massage.
