I refer out a fair number of new clients. Because I have a decent website and I’ve been around for several years, I get a few calls a week from potential new clients. I’ve got a pretty standard list of questions I ask, so here’s what to expect when you call me.
- How did you hear about me?
- Why are you seeking massage?
- Have you had massage before?
- What day or times do you wish to schedule a massage?
The answers to these questions will help me figure out if I’m the right massage therapist for you, or if not, which colleague is! There are a few reasons I may refer you to a colleague.
First, my schedule is very full. There are only 24 hours in a day, and I get grumpy if I work too many of them. My evening and weekend appointments are usually full, and I’m not in the office much on Mondays or Wednesdays. We simply may not be able to get you in the schedule.
Second, there are lots of different kinds of massage. What I do may not be what you need or want. If you’re pregnant, or if you have depression and/or anxiety problems, there’s a solid chance I’m a good therapist for you.
If you want really deep, sports-oriented massage, you’ll get better treatment from Jameela or Andria. If you want some Reiki or Hot Stone Massage, Karleen is a great massage therapist for you (she does a fancy Structural Relief Therapy technique, too.) And Christina should be your first call if you want Craniosacral Therapy, (it’s amazing).
It’s really important to me that you get a massage experience that’s right for you. I don’t want you wasting time or money, so I’ll do my best to get you to the therapist that’s a good fit.
See you soon! (Or not.)
