      • In general, we will be closed on: New Year's Day, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas​

Why do we require a credit or debit card to hold appointments?

  • Credit/Debit cards are required to hold appointments for our cancellation policy (see next question). We have a cancellation policy for a very simple reason...we make a living providing service treatments. If we hold a space on our schedule for you, we can't open that time for anyone else. If someone doesn't show up or cancel with enough time for us to fill the time slot, we don't make any money. 

What is our cancellation policy?

  • We require 24-hours notice for cancellation. This provides us with enough time, usually, to fill a vacant timeslot. Our system will shoot you a text message 48 hours prior to your appointment time to remind you. In the event of a last-minute cancellation, while we do our absolute best to fill the space and make 100% of our service fee, sometimes this can't happen, in that case there is a 50% charge. In the event of a no-call/no-show there will be a 100% charge of the original service price. Scheduling a future service will not be allowed until this cancellation fee is paid. 

Can we run the card used to hold the appointment or that is assigned to your account?

  • No, we do not charge the card on file unless in the case of a last-minute cancellation/no-show. The card is NOT charged upon booking and can't be used to prepay for an appointment scheduled. You must present this card, or another, at the time of checkout where you will be asked to sign for the treatment. 

  • If you are redeeming a gift certificate, it MUST BE PRESENTED at the time of checkout in order to be redeemed.

Do we sell gift certificates?

  • Yes, we do offer gift certificates for purchase. You may purchase gift certificates in-store during our retail/front desk hours OR they can be purchased online 24/7.

  • Gift certificates are not sold per service, but are offered in denominations starting at $25 and can increase in value based on your budget. 

  • We do require the information of the purchaser and the recipient to ensure the safe-keeping of the gift certificate. In the event of it's loss, proof of purchase must be presented to reissue the gift certificate. 

When do gift certificates expire?

  • Gift Certificates are valid for two (2) years after the date of purchase.

  • There is no refund offered for gift certificate purchases. 

Do we offer retail products for sale?

  • Yes, we offer retail in-store and online. Our retail offerings are growing and pertain to holistic health & lifestyle. Very soon we will accommodate the sale of bulk herbs for your herbal oil & plant healing. We are super excited about this!

Do we sell products that we use in services?

  • Yes, we sure do! There are several items for purchase utilized by our LMTs in our services.

What is the return policy on retail products?

  • Refunds for unopened products with the original packaging and price tags will be offered as a store credit within 30 days of purchase. 

  • No refunds will be issued on open products, clearance or close-out products.

Is there required paperwork to be completed before appointments?

  • Yes, Health Intake Forms & Liability waivers must be completed before your appointment begins. All of our forms are available on our website, but they will be emailed & texted to you. Our forms are only available online and are not made available in any other format.

What time should you arrive for your appointment?

  • We ask that you arrive at least five (5) minute prior to the scheduled start time. Arriving early allows you time to check-in, have a sip of water, use the restroom, & wind down before your service. Your scheduled time indicates when your service begins. A late arrival will take-away from your service time as to not interfere with clients scheduled after you. 

  • Beginning in June of 2022 our neighboring space became occupied. Because of this parking has become a bit of a challenge at certain times of the day. Please be aware of this and allow yourself extra time to find parking. We recommend showing up at least ten (10) to fifteen (15) minutes early especially at times around dinner and lunch. 

A note on showing courtesy to others:

  • Our environment is unique. Being aware of your surroundings & the existence of others that will be sharing the space with you allows everyone to enjoy their service(s). Please be sure to quiet your cell phones (or turn them off completely) & avoid taking phone calls while in the lobby/waiting area or in the treatment rooms. If you take a call, please take it outside as to not disturb others. Sound carries, especially in a space that encourages quiet contemplation & relaxation. Please remember that voices carry. When in the lobby/waiting area & making your way to your treatment room, we ask that you speak at a low volume as to not interrupt the services of others. Or, wait to chat with your service provider when you get to your treatment room. 

Do we sanitize our space?

  • Before & after each service, your treatment room is sanitized to prepare fo the client that is arriving. Surfaces have been sanitized, floors have been cleaned, & all of the linens have been replaced. We do our absolute best to ensure not only the safety & health o ourselves & guests, but also on the presentation of the space. If you notice something that we haven't, please make sure to notify Jennifer.

  • Cleanliness is not only our responsibility. Arriving prepared to your appointment includes arriving on time, completing paperwork, & showing up showered. If the time directly before your appointment involves physical activity that requires a shower, please make sure you take care of this before you arrive. We do not currently have a shower on the premises. 

Service Information

What types of services do we offer?

  • We specialize in holistic massage & bodywork services. Our menu can be found on our Services page however, as we continue to grow our business and as individual professionals, this may adapt to our unique offerings. Please continue to check back, but our online booking portal will always be up-to-date. ​​

Do we offer Deep Tissue Massage?

  • Yes! We offer a wide range of massage modalities. However, you won't see traditional massages listed on our service menu (i.e. Swedish, Therapeutic, Deep Tissue). We offer what is called an Integrative Massage. Our Integrative Massage is meant to take the guesswork out of scheduling for clients. As professionals, it is our responsibility to educate clients on the types of massage & what may be best for their unique bodies & concerns. Clients need a change from visit to visit, it is our job to adapt to those changes & provide the appropriate techniques. ​​That being said, our licensed practitioners will utilize techniques from all of these modalities to provide you with the best massage suited to you and your individual needs. These techniques may include Trigger Point Therapy, Warm Stones, Cupping, Range of Motion, Hot/Cold Therapy, etc. and you will not be charged extra for these treatments. However, if you choose to add extra time to your service (if the schedule allows) there will be an additional charge. 

Do we accommodate walk-ins for services? 

  • Unfortunately, we can not accommodate walk-ins for services. We are, and always have been, by appointment only. Sometimes it is possible for us to accommodate same-day scheduling, however, our licensed practitioners require a minimum of one hour's notice. ​

How do you schedule a service with us?

  • Our online booking portal is available 24/7 via the link on our Services page or here.

    • Our online booking is up-to-date and accurate. If you can't find an available time or day that works for you, please add yourself to the online waitlist. If you have more questions or are having issues with scheduling online, please call. ​

  • You are more than welcome to call during our Retail/Front Desk hours & speak with one of us at 316-425-0055 

Do we offer Couples Massage?

  • The short answer is, no. We do not offer couples massages, however, we can try to find two openings with two different therapists at the same time. Your massages will be performed in different treatment rooms. 

    • Why not? Well, traditionally, just like with any other modality, there is a purpose and intention. A couples massages was meant to be more than just two people receiving a massage at the same time in the same room. A couples massage is meant to be a shared experience, with coordinated massages beginning & ending at the same time. The flow of the massages is meant to be the same in order to connect energetically during your treatment. It is important that therapists work well together while having a mutual understanding of the goal and intention of other services offered. ​

    • The benefit of each of you coming together but enjoying your treatments in separate rooms is the ability for you to each relax & receive customized treatments. 

Do we offer skincare services?

  • In February 2022, Jennifer decided that skincare services were no longer serving the greater purpose of The Pushy Goat. While we find the value in these services, it was pulling her attention away from her greater passion(s) of holistic bodywork & herbalism. Freeing up this space, both physically & energetically, has allowed for greater growth in other areas. There are other businesses in town that offer wonderful skincare services offered by professionals that have spent years in the industry. So, while we devote our years of experience in massage & holistic bodywork practices we decided to leave skincare to those that have devoted their careers to this. 

Other than massage, do you offer any other services?

  • ABSOLUTELY! We believe that massage is a wonderful foundation to build upon, however, we offer a wide range of holistic services. Jennifer has a background in herbalism as well as Ayurvedic practices and eastern techniques. She is working diligently to bring purposeful & intentional services to our space. You can find a list of these services via our online booking or on a Service menu (just remember, this is changing & growing). 

  • Some of these services include: Gharshana, Herbal Sauna Wrap, Ayurvedic Ear Candling, Reiki, Reflexology, & more!

Are there options to add-on to bodywork services?

  • Yep! Under our service enhancements options we offer things like:

    • Mellow-Mind Tea Session, Warm Oil Scalp Massage, even an addiontal 15-minutes of massage! ​

    • What we DON"T charge extra for: trigger point therapy, warm stones (used as a therapeutic tool, NOT as a full body treatment), cupping

Is it possible to switch massage therapists for your next appointment?

  • Absolutely! Whether you are just wanting to experience a different provider, or your last one didn't seem like the perfect fit, we do not hold any resentment or animosity to our clients or fellow practitioners. In fact, we encourage our clients to experience different providers and we often refer our clients to our colleagues. Your service is about you, not about us. Please feel comfortable to make adjustments as necessary. 

Herbalism Information

What is Herbalism?

  • Herbalism, to put it simply, refers to folk & traditional medicinal practices based on the use of plants & plant extracts to help maintain balance & promote wellness within the human body. There are several methods of preparing herbs, or leaving them as-is, to help alleviate discomfort from pain, inflammation, anxiety, stress, etc., & maintain health as well as prevent disease. Disease, when first used, referred literally to the “lack of ease or comfort” rather than how it is used today to refer to sickness or problems with bodily functions. Herbalism and traditional plant medicine dates back to 5th century BCE.  Herbalists utilize herbal preparations & specifc formulations to help themselves, their friends, family, & clients to maintain health or aid on the pathway to healing & blance within the body. I am excited to bring more knowledge & information to my life & the lives of those we encounter at The Pushy Goat.
