Welcome to Massage Therapy & Spa Indulgence by Mary!
`Vouchers are for new clients only. If you have previously been in on a voucher, it was explained to you on your first visit that the voucher companies take 50% and that I would give you the deal directly to come back if you saw it listed again- you need only ask. If you purchased another voucher after redeeming your first, I will not honor it. It is highly insulting and rude to expect me to work on you for free again. Please return your voucher and purchase directly from me as I do NOT work for free! (it also clearly states on the voucher this is for clients who have not patronized the business in 6mos time! Amazon refuses to put "new clients only"- I am not so lenient when you know vouchers actually cost ME money!)
`If you purchased a Swedish Massage, you may upgrade to an Integrated if you have issues that need addressing, areas of trouble, medical massage issues or a lot of knots, tension and pain. Swedish Massage is for the promotion of your circulation and lymph flow and to relax you. if you have a list of ailments that you want addressed, upgrade! If you purchased Swedish and do not intend to upgrade you will get a Swedish! I do not work for free!
`Please do not have the expectation that you will get a same day or next day appointment. If you sit on a voucher for 6 months until its expiration, or very close to, you may expire before you can be booked! This is an independent therapist, not a spa. Please book to save your voucher! Your voucher clearly states appointments are subject to availability!
`If you purchased a 3 massage voucher, the promotional price does not apply to all 3 massages unless all 3 are booked and used before the 180 period.
`3 packs that were available for purchase on Amazon are for single-customer use only- they may not be "shared". This is clearly stated on the voucher!

THE FOLLOWING CLIENT INFORMATION IS INTENDED TO EDUCATE AND INFORM AND TO ADVOCATE FOR FAIR PAY FROM CLIENTS UTILIZING INTERNET VOUCHERS:
NJ STATE SALES TAX REMINDER:
UNLESS LITERALLY PRESCRIBED ON A LEGAL PRESCRIPTION PAD BY A NJ LICENSED DOCTOR, FOR A SPECIFIC MEDICAL ISSUE, IN THE STATE OF NJ ALL MASSAGE IS SUBJECT TO A 7% SALES TAX AS IT IS CONSIDERED A LUXURY SERVICE, MUCH THE SAME AS GETTING YOUR HAIR OR NAILS DONE. PLEASE BE AWARE SALES TAX IS DUE ON ALL VOUCHERS AND ALL DIRECT PAY SERVICES.
GRATUITY IS ALSO NOT INCLUDED IN THE COST OF YOUR INTERNET VOUCHER! UNLESS YOU ARE SEEKING PRESCRIBED MEDICAL MASSAGE, SERVICES OFFERED HERE ARE STILL CONSIDERED A LUXURY ITEM. THE OLD ADAGE ABOUT NOT TIPPING A BUSINESS OWNER BECAUSE THEY 'GET TO KEEP ALL THE MONEY' IS A FARCE. IF A LUXURY SERVICE IS BEING PERFORMED ON YOU AT YOUR REQUEST, SUCH AS HAIR CUT, COLOR OR STYLE, MANICURE, PEDICURE, FACIAL OR MASSAGE- IT IS CUSTOMARY TO TIP YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER REGARDLESS OF WHO IS DOING IT.
OWNERS DO NOT GET TO "KEEP ALL THE MONEY". OWNERS DO NOT PAY THEMSELVES AND THEN PAY THE BILLS. OWNERS GET WHATS LEFT AFTER THE RENT IS PAID, THE SUPPLIES ARE PURCHASED AND ALL TAXES ARE PAID. WHEN YOU ARE PAYING $29 FOR AN INTERNET MASSAGE, THAT MEANS THE OWNER IS MAKING ABSOLUTELY NO MONEY AT ALL FROM THE MASSAGE YOU ARE RECEIVING. THE OWNER GETS ABOUT $15 FROM THE VOUCHER COMPANY (YES, THAT MEANS AMAZON, GROUPON, LIVING SOCIAL, ETC). THAT MONEY COVERS THE RENT, THE COST OF YOUR SUPPLIES, THE CLEANING COSTS, THE TAXES, ETC. THE DEAL IS PROVIDED TO YOU ON THE PREMISE YOU WILL BE PROVIDING GRATUITY TO YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER AND THAT YOU WILL HOPEFULLY BECOME A REGULAR PAYING CLIENT! (THERE IS NO OTHER REASON WE WOULD WE LOWER OUR PRICES TO NEXT-TO-NOTHING)
LARGE "BIG BOX" COMPANIES WHO HAVE 10-20 THERAPY ROOMS ABLE TO BE FILLED AT ONE TIME DO THIS BECAUSE THE PERCENTAGES EVEN OUT AND THEY DO MAKE MONEY OFF OF IT- ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU "JOIN THEIR CLUB". THEY PAY THEIR THERAPISTS LOW BECAUSE YOU TIP (IT MAKES UP "THE DIFFERENCE" IN WHAT A MASSAGE THERAPIST OR ESTHETICIAN SHOULD BE PAID). IF YOU ARE GOING TO TIP AN EMPLOYEE WHO IS MAKING $15-20/HR, WHY WOULD YOU NOT TIP SOMEONE WHO IS MAKING LESS THAN $3/HR AND WHO IS SIGNIFICANTLY INVESTED IN YOUR WELLNESS BECAUSE YOU ARE THEIR CLIENT, NOT THE "BIG BOX'S"? YOUR INDEPENDENT THERAPIST IS WORKING 15-30 MINUTES BEFORE YOU ARRIVE TO SET UP FOR YOU AND 15-30 MINUTES AFTER YOU LEAVE TO CLEAN UP AFTER YOU. THAT IS 1HR 45MIN - 2HRS WORKING FOR $0.00 WHEN YOU COME IN ON A VOUCHER. WHEN YOU DON'T TIP BECAUSE YOU THINK WE "GET TO KEEP IT ALL", WE ARE WORKING FOR NOTHING. OUR RENT DOES NOT GET PAID. OUR FAMILIES DO NOT EAT. WE ARE INDEPENDENT THERAPISTS, NOT THE "BUSINESS OWNERS" THAT OLD ADAGE WAS INTENDED TO REPRESENT. IF YOU WOULD NOT WALK OUT ON A RESTAURANT CHECK WITHOUT TIPPING YOUR SERVER, WHY WOULD YOU WALK OUT ON YOUR THERAPIST?
-MTSI has a 24-hr cancellation policy. If you are booked and cancel with less than 24hrs notice you will need to pay for your cancelled appointment in full before any more appointments will be made. I understand emergencies come up but due to repeat offenders I am strictly enforcing this policy to ensure that MTSI stays in business! If I cant pay my rent, I cant be here for you! If you book on a voucher and cancel or reschedule without 24hrs notice or no show, the voucher is forfeited.
-Please do not contact me before 8am. MTSI is privately owned and to ensure you receive the quickest call-backs possible, my personal phone is my work phone. Please be courteous and keep the contact between 8am and 10pm.
-Voucher clients who will soon be expiring: Please do not have the expectation that you will get a same day or next day appointment. Please book in advance to save your voucher! If you purchased a 3 massage voucher, the promotional price does not apply to all 3 massages unless all 3 are booked and used before the 180 period.
-MTSI is currently booked out about 12-14 days in advance. Some short notice appointments are available but not many, especially during the popular late afternoon/early evening hours- call to book your appointment today!
Please stay posted: MTSI will be offering Personal Training soon. Mary has completed all training and passed all examinations (and with very high scores!) and upon receipt of the actual Certification and additional insurance, these services will be added to the menu. Please call or write with any questions or requests!

BABY'S FIRST MASSAGE
Newborn and Infant Massage Instruction
As you may already know, I am an instructor of Baby's First Massage, the premiere Newborn and Infant Massage program designed by R.N. Sandra Newkirk. Massage is a proven, safe method of bonding, promoting weight gain and body temperature regulation (especially for preemies!), colic reduction; it helps newborns and infants pass gas and bowel moments, calms a fussy or over-stimulated baby and promotes healthy and mutually beneficial emotional/psycho-social development. This class is for new and not-so-new parents and grands, older siblings, sitters and all other caregivers. It provides a great level of comfort and confidence to all levels of caregivers in their abilities and it is a wonderful experience to have with your little one/s!
Classes held by demand. Classes can be held in your home, office, church or other safe and viable location. The class is 90min and cost is 25. per family. Class size is limited so please call asap to reserve your spot. Spaces are open to prenatal and delivered clients (prenatal clients may bring a life size baby doll to learn on, others may bring baby in!)
Please browse the site and call for a consultation or to make your appointment today. I look forward to talking with you, meeting you and helping you achieve your ultimate state of mind-body-spirit wellness and peace.
