Quality personalized massage therapy


April 19 - ROAD WORK on Lake Street - Railroad crossing at Lake and Hiawatha is closed 4/23/18 through 5/5/18. Now that the weather is better masonry work on the outside of the building is back in swing. Also, rate changes involving sales tax effective after March 31, 2018.

So some exterior/interior work is about to be underway this month. Some involves brickwork on the exterior of my side of the building. More involves replacing windows in the studio. We do not have firm dates from the landlord as to when this will take place other than the work will continue this month (to start). My standard policies apply - I hope to not have to reschedule anyone, and will not penalize anyone who is not satisfied with the atmosphere on any day. Wish I had more control, but then I wish that about many things wink. Please bear with us some more!

And now sales tax - massage is sales taxable in the state of Minnesota and up until now I have just included it in my base price. At this point I need to separate this out due to 1099s and other things getting very complicated. This will change at the end of March 2018. There is an exemption from some sales taxes on massage therapy - per the Minnesota Department of Revenue website -  "The massage is not taxable if a customer has a written referral from a licensed health professional stating the massage is for the treatment of illness, injury, or disease." . If you would like to have an exemption from sales tax on your massage, I will need a referral from your doctor, chiropractor or state licensed health professional.  You can get more information on this at the Minnesota Department of Revenue website here -  Mn Dept of Revenue on Massage, Sales Tax. Generally if your chiropractor or doctor has recommended you see me in the past, they are aware of this type of referral and can create one for you. Thanks again for your understanding. Be well! - Rebecca Smith CMT
