BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
Please note: Dusty will be away this summer and is not accepting appointments in the Bay Area.
For updates on my return plans, please sign up for my e-mail list here!
Evening and alternate appointment times are available by request.
Cancellation Policy :
24 hour advance notice is required when cancelling an appointment. This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule an appointment. If you are unable to provide 24 hours advance notice you will be charged the full amount of your appointment. This amount must be paid prior to your next scheduled appointment.
Anyone who either misses their appointment for whatever reason will be considered a “no-show.” They will be charged for their missed appointment.
If you arrive late, your session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. Depending upon how late you arrive, your therapist will then determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the “full” session. Out of respect and consideration to your therapist and other clients, please plan accordingly and be on time
Berkeley Office: The Berkeley Acupuncture Project where my office is located is wheelchair accessible & fragrance free. BAP is 0.4 miles from Downtown Berkeley BART and near several AC transit lines. 2-hour metered street parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood. Please leave yourself extra time to park, if driving.
Address will be e-mailed to you when you make an appointment. 0.3 miles from MacArthur BART and near several AC transit lines. There is free 2-hour street parking in the surrounding neighborhood.
There are 3 steps from the sidewalk up to the gate; 9 steps up to the front door. My home office is low scent; sessions are fragrance-free. I make my own unscented massage salve, wash massage linens in a scent-free detergent, and use fragrance free cleaning and personal products. Essential oils are used and herbs burned in other parts of the home, but not on days when session are offered. One indoor/outdoor cat lives in the house but does not enter the massage room.
I perform most bodywork on a massage table that stands about 3 feet off the ground. In a session you could lie face down, on your back, supported with pillows on your side, or in any combination that is most comfortable for you. You are also welcome to request chair massage - either in a massage chair or seated in your own wheelchair.
