We live in a beautiful world with a tremendous wealth gap.
In an effort to serve more people, I offer a sliding scale pricing schedule. I invite you to take a  look at the price schedule. Please check in with yourself and choose the registration price that honestly reflects your life and resources. Your need and generosity are equally appreciated in group & individual sessions. 
 
Thank you for taking the time to consider this. 
Best,

Jolene

I honour and thank Alexis J Cunningfolk for their creation of Sliding Scale: A Tool of Economic Justice.
You can read more about their work here
I offer 1:1 in-persion sessions on the following sliding scale price schedule:

60 minutes: $65-90
90 minutes: $95-130
2 hours: $135-170

Why do I offer this scale? Learn more here.

The top end of the scale reflects the true cost.  This is what I would charge all clients in the absence of a sliding scale. 
If you are financially secure, you would not traditionally qualify for sliding scale services. If you are able to pay for "wants" and spend little time worrying about securing necessities in your life, you have economic privilege and power in our community.  This price is for you.
The middle range reflects my understanding that paying full price would prevent some folks from being able to afford massage, but do not honestly find themselves described in either the top end or bottom ranges. 
If you are struggling to conquer debt or build savings or move away from paycheck to paycheck living but have access to steady income and don’t spend most of your time thinking about meeting basic needs, this is your range.
The lowest cost represents an honest acknowledgment that there are folks whose economic circumstances prevent them from receiving massage if there was not a deliberate opportunity made for them to do so. 
If it’s a struggle to maintain access to needs such as health care, housing, child care etc and/or you live paycheck to paycheck/are in significant debt, this option is for you.  You deserve a community that honours your price as equal of an economic offering as the person who can pay the highest tier.

I want to ensure my practice is as financially accessible as possible.  In order to align my payment policies with my philosophy, I have transitioned my rates entirely to SLIDING SCALE PRICING.  The goal of this structure is to:
  • Increase financial accessibility of massage therapy.
  • Reaffirm my commitment to offering preventative health care to our entire community.
  • Increase awareness of massage as a viable treatment option. By reducing the financial impact of regular massage, clients are encouraged to participate in a regular treatment plan, thereby increasing the benefits and experiencing longer lasting benefits.
 
The basic economic concept of sliding scale is: people pay what they are honestly able. Those with access to more resources pay more, thereby providing a cushion for those with less access to pay less, which provides a sustainable economic underpinning for the massage therapist.  More information on that here.
