Offering massage and aromatherapy for women and women ONLY. Providing stress and pain relief of all sorts of aches, pains, such as fibromyalgia, MS, TMJ and tired achy feet. I am also working on providing relief from headaches via the use of massage, Synergy Stones and essential oils. I provide a unique blend of Swedish, Deep Tissue and Trigger Point, which I call "Relax Tissue." The ONLY types of massage I do not offer are Prenatal and true, therapeutic Deep Tissue nor do I do sports massage. I also do not offer "couple's" massage (Ex. Mother/Daughter, 2 sisters or 2 friends) as I am a solo practitioner and really, my room is not large enough. The same goes for requests of 3 or more ladies. My intention with my longer sessions is that is for one lady to get that length of session at a time. I desire to give each my upmost best and I find it difficult to provide the service I love giving by splitting up sessions and doing more than one lady in a single appointment. I tend to have a medium, but firm pressure. I do not believe that in order for massage to be good and effective that it has to hurt or I have to "dig." What I do is, I utilize strokes that are designed to relax the muscle first then if need be, go a bit deeper. In my mind, this approach I use is very effective in providing stress and pain relief. My Synergy Stones then do add a bit of extra pressure and depth to relieve muscle aches and stress. If per chance you have any complaints or anything that you may dislike about your session, please let me know during your session so I can make adjustments. Like using a tad less cream/essential oil combination or adding a bit more pressure.
All sessions are conducted at my current location, 440 W. Main, suite C, Fairborn, OH
Great massage! Works around your schedule.
The most relaxing , peaceful place for my first massage. I cant wait to return. I will be a forever customer. Very happy I went. Thank you for making my experience memorable. See you soon.
This is the best therapy if you have fibromyalgia any type of autoimmune disease just need to relax. Whenever my body lets me know I am overdoing it I make an appointment and feel brand new!!!
Awesome massage! Very relaxing, and an excellent break from work/ life. The essential oils were very nice, and it was an overall lovely experience with a very kind massage therapist.
This was my first massage and Ruth made me feel comfortable. She was very nice and it was definitely a relaxing treatment!!
I appreciate that you’ve chosen me for your massage and bodywork needs. To provide the best service possible to our clients I have implemented the following policies.
***Policy in regards to payment: Payments will be received upon each session being finished. I accept cash(exact amount), personal check, all credit/debit cards and of course Groupon/Living vouchers. While I do offer various discounts, at this time, I will not and don't accept the extra coupons put out from Groupon/Living Social without a purchase of their vouchers. In other words, you must purchase one of their vouchers in order to take advantage of their discounts as that comes from Groupon/Living Social.*** **** In regards to any refunds, Groupon handles their own refunds: contact their customer service at 1 (888) 375-5777 or www.groupon.com/customer_support. As for refunds from me for those paying cash/credit or check: I tend to collect payment after the session, so if you feel your session was not to your liking or expectations, then I will not collect any payment from you and your session will be at no cost to you. ***
***Cancellation/Rescheduling and No call/no show Policy: I respectfully ask that you provide me with at least 12-hour (24 hour preferred) notice of any schedule changes (or at least 2 hours if running late) or cancellation requests. Please understand that when you cancel or miss your appointment without providing at least a 12 hour notice I am often unable to fill that appointment time. This is an inconvenience to me as your therapist and means my other clients miss the chance to receive services they need or desire. For this reason, you will be charged 50% of the service fee for the first missed session and 100% of the service fee for each session after that. I also reserve the right to require a credit card number to be given to book future appointments so that appropriate fees may be charged if a late cancellation does occur. *Groupon clients, this will also apply to you as well, just handled a bit differently. With the first violation of no call/no show or late cancelation/rescheduling notice, I will note it in my notes. The second time this happens, I will redeem your Groupon voucher without you being seen. I do understand that emergencies can arise, and illnesses do occur at inopportune times. If you have a fever, a known infection, or have other severe symptoms within 24 hours prior to your appointment time, I request that you cancel your session. ***Please note: The only phone number to call or text to let me know that your appointment needs to be changed is (937) 344-6156. Far too many of you respond to the phone number associated with my online scheduling site. I do NOT receive these messages.***
**Inclement weather may also result in the need for late cancellations. I will do my best to give advanced notice of any closure or late start due to inclement weather. Please do not risk your own safety trying to make your appointment. Late cancellation due to emergency, illness, or inclement weather will generally not result in any missed session charges, but this is determined on a case-by-case basis. My usual "rule of thumb" is, if the weather is such that most of the area schools are closed, then so will I close. I also ask that when it comes to calling/texting, please no calls or texts before 8am and none after 9pm. And please leave a voicemail should you get no answer as I DO NOT respond to random phone numbers calling my phone.
*Late Arrival Policy* I request that you arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your appointment time to allow time to fill out any required paperwork as well as answer any intake questions I may have. I understand that issues can arise that may cause you to be late for your appointment. However, I ask that you call or text to inform me if this ever occurs so I can do my best to accommodate you, preferably 2 hours prior to your appointment. (Please consider mapping out your route beforehand if you've never been to my office). Appointment times are reserved for each client, so oftentimes I cannot exceed that reserved time without making the next client late. For this reason, arriving after your appointment time may result in loss of time from your massage so that your session ends at the scheduled time. *NOTE*: If you are more than 5 but less than 10 minutes late, I will deduct 5 minutes off your session or if you are 15-20 (or more) minutes late, your session will be cancelled and rescheduled. Repeat offenders will be requested not to come back. In return I will do my best to be on time ( I typically arrive 30 minutes prior), and if I am unable to do so I will add time to your session to make up for our late arrival or adjust the service charge accordingly.
*Inappropriate Behavior Policy: Massage therapy is for relaxation and therapeutic purposes only. There is absolutely no sexual component to massage whatsoever. Any insinuation, joke, gesture, conversation, or request otherwise will result in immediate termination of your session and a refusal of any and all services in the future. You will be charged the full service fee regardless of the length of your session. Depending on the behavior exhibited we may also file a report with the local authorities if necessary. Treat your therapist with respect and dignity and you will be treated the same in return.
**Special policy in regards to COVID: Please note: If you have had COVID or been exposed recently, I would greatly appreciate heads up. Those who've had it, please get cleared by your physician that it's ok for you to be around others. Masks: At this time, I do not require a mask in the treatment room. I will wear one upon greeting you and during intake if it makes you feel more comfortable. However, I will not be subject to bullying or guilt tripping in my own office if I do not have a mask on when you arrive(in cases where you arrive early). If there is a medically sound reason to why you feel I must wear a mask, then, please inform me ahead of time and I will respect your wishes. ***
I put your needs first so you feel better as soon as possible. Your comfort and needs are my primary focus. This starts with the initial intake and a brief interview at your first session. And in each session, I ask what is needed at that time before the massage begins.
In order to provide you with the best experience, I tailor each and every session to meet your specific goals and needs. I offer primarily therapeutic relaxation massage which provides both relaxation and pain, stress relief. I put you ahead of any set protocol.
To enhance your session, I even encourage you, if you like a certain type of music and have a CD that you would like to be played or a favorite radio station, that can be an option instead of the typical "spa" music. Also, if you don't like having the table warmer on, I will gladly turn it off. My only real rule for the treatment room is, I ask that no cell phone be used while on the table. This is primarily to avoid any possible damage that could occur to your phone.
As a trained, licensed massage therapist, I can assess your needs so you get the perfect massage you'll love.

I obtained my license from the State of Ohio Medical Board in July, 2014. I do have a copy of my license displayed in the treatment room. **State of Ohio Medical Board License # 33.021759 **
I take great pride and joy in what I do and I aim to give each client my upmost best as that's what I feel they deserve.
Ladies, please note: I do take great pride in my work. I am very casual, laid back. But, I want you all to know, I am older and therefore some may not find me to be a suitable fit as a massage therapist.
