PLEASE REVIEW OUR NEW SAFETY PROCEDURES
At Artemis, it's always been a top priority to provide a safe space for healing and rejuvenation, but we are now setting the bar higher than ever. By reviewing each aspect of the client and therapist experience, we are establishing new procedures and upgrading protocols to meet, and in many cases, exceed government and industry-specific guidance.
Your appointment time is reserved specifically for you. To reschedule or cancel an appointment, please contact the studio with at least 24 hours' notice. A late cancellation fee equal to $5.00 per 15 minutes of the scheduled appointment length is charged for any cancellation received with less than 24 hours' notice. Please see the fee table below.
This policy also applies in the case that a client fails to notify the studio of the late cancellation and subsequently does not attend the appointment; it applies to appointments made within the 24-hour cancellation window itself; it applies when an appointment must be shortened by 15 minutes or more due to significantly late arrival.
Lastly, this policy applies if a client arrives for an appointment and services cannot be performed due to information not previously disclosed at the time of booking (e.g. gender preference, serious injury or health condition, etc.) or because a client declines to follow studio policies and/or COVID-19 safety procedures.
Following three late cancellations within 90 days, 100% of the missed appointment value is due and no further bookings may be confirmed at the studio.
Refunds for services purchased on account may be granted to the original purchaser with a min. 24 hours' notice prior to the appointment start time. Gift cards are nonrefundable.
Gift cards never expire. Gift cards are transferable; if you have received a gift card and wish to transfer it to another individual, please call the office and the front desk will assist you.
Please note a balance may be due for any gift card redeemed more than a year after the original purchase date in the case that studio rates have changed for the intended service(s).
All clients must have a current health intake on file prior to receiving a service. If this is your first visit to Artemis or it's been over a year since you last completed an intake, please submit your information digitally ahead of time using a computer.
Clients should arrive at the studio a few minutes prior to their appointment start time.
Please note that therapists are only permitted to work up to 5 minutes past your scheduled appointment end time. If you are substantially late, your service may be shortened in order to adhere to the studio schedule; the full amount for the service is still due.
In accordance with Board prescribed professional ethics and standards of conduct for licensed massage therapists, draping is required during all appointments.
At the start of an appointment, the therapist exits the room and the client disrobes in privacy to their comfort level. Clients may only disrobe after the therapist has exited the room.
Prior to the therapist re-entering the room, the client is required to fully cover the genitals, gluteal cleft, and female breast area with the sheet provided. At no time during the appointment may any of these areas be exposed by either the therapist or the client.
Clients are not permitted to solicit the services of a massage therapist to be provided outside of the studio.
Massage therapy is strictly therapeutic. No sexual discourse or overtures of any kind are tolerated.
Artemis is a sanctuary -- please turn off all cell phone notifications and use a soft, low voice to avoid disrupting other clients who are in session.
You may choose to converse with your therapist, or you may remain silent through your massage. Your therapist will mirror your decision. However, there are instances when your therapist may need to speak with you -- this may be for feedback, an explanation of findings, or to ask you to reposition.
If you enjoy your massage, it is customary to leave a gratuity for your therapist. Gratuity may be left on a credit card or given separately as cash. If you have taken advantage of a discounted rate, please consider tipping on the regular service rate.
We do not have shower facilities at the studio. Bathe prior to your massage, especially if you intend to work out or engage in physical activity earlier in the day. Please avoid applying any strong fragrance, such as perfume or cologne. Hand towels are available in every therapy room; you may also request a warm towel prior to the start of the massage if needed.
In an effort to maintain a clean and quiet environment, shoes may be removed when you arrive at the studio. A shoe rack is provided. Other personal items should be taken into the therapy room with you. If you are removing any valuable jewelry, consider placing it directly into a handbag or pocket, so that it is not left behind. Artemis is not responsible for any lost or misplaced items.
A single massage therapist founded Artemis in 2010 with the intention of establishing a modern studio for therapeutic bodywork in downtown State College. Today, the studio consists of 10 highly-trained massage therapists. Through constant continuing education and innovation of services, we offer the widest range of options for massage therapy in Central PA.
OUR SUCCESS IS GROUNDED IN A GENUINE DESIRE TO PROVIDE THE BEST MASSAGE EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE FOR EVERY CLIENT WHO COMES THROUGH OUR DOOR.
If you're looking for relief of pain and stress, a compliment to your active lifestyle, or a chance to celebrate a special occasion, you can rely on Artemis for a professional, quality massage in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.
