Rate and Policies

Time & Money: Treat the Need. Sessions are offered for free to the Rhode Island community. Nevertheless, I encourage you to consider giving a donation to sustain this practice. The market rate for one hour of bodywork in Rhode Island is $80. My sessions are 75 minutes; a donation of $100 will cover your session’s cost. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Donations of cash, personal check, and Venmo are accepted. Insurance can sometimes be billed with a doctor’s prescription.

Comfort: Your comfort is key. Let me know if anything gets in the way of your relaxing: room temperature, lighting, and particular qualities of my touch are all very easy for me to adjust.

Consent: As we begin our session, you will establish the regions of your body in which we will work. Any contact with nipples or genitals is inappropriate, therapeutically ill-advised, and prohibited by law.

Ins & Outs: Anything you use as pain medicine may lessen the effectiveness of our session: if you are feeling its effects, you are less able to feel your own body. Feelings of either hunger or over-fullness may also impede our work together.

Cancellations: Any cancellation within 24 hours of the scheduled session will incur a one-week scheduling restriction. The restriction may be waived in cases of personal hardship; email evan@ELMtherapies.com.
