Yes, I have finally raised my rates!

Posted on November 17, 2022 at 3:35 PM

As you may have noticed, I have finally incresed my rates. After 15 years in practice, it is time. However, if you have been a regular guest and have seen me consistently since my reopening in June of 2021, you will be, for now, grandfathered in to my old rates. Also, my traditional FBSM sessions still stay at the original rate!

 

If you are wondering if you are a regular guest and not a repeat guest, here are a few clues:

 

1. I don't have to ask you for your password. I know exactly who you are.

 

2. I am your GO TO, not the second or third or fourth choice when booking a session.

 

3. I make space for you for same day sessions normally.

 

4. You see me consistently at least once every one or two months.

Negative Covid tests now accepted

Posted on November 17, 2022 at 3:25 PM

For those who are unable to get a vaccine, I am now allowing a negative covid test, either the day before or day of your session. Please know that if this is the route you choose to take, your deposit is non refundable if your test is positive on a same day test. My preference, is that you are fully vaxxed AND boosted against the most recent variants. However, at home tests take 15 minutes and are perfectly acceptable for me. I look forward to seeing all those I couldnt see before soon!

   

                               


Naked Yoga will soon be a new offering!

Posted on November 17, 2022 at 3:05 PM

Right now, I am taking a 500hr Yoga Teacher Training with Yogamu, a studio based in Rishikesh, India. My desire is to offer one on one bare yoga classes, both in person and online, with a focus on Hatha Yoga. I am super excited about this upcoming offering! It will take me a couple of months to finish the initial 200hr training, at which point I can begin teaching! A notice will be going when I am ready.




A note about deposits

Posted on July 6, 2022 at 6:40 PM

Taking deposits is a business decision I made when reopening after Covid shutdowns. I had 15 months to reevaluate my business model and take a look into things that would make me work better, not harder. One big issue that is very frustrating in my business is the prevelance of no call/no shows, last minute rescheduling, and flaky people in general. In order to curb this, I simply started taking deposits to hold your session time. I realized that many professionals take deposits to ensure I would show up and compensate them if I dont. These include my tattoo artist, my lash lady, and my facialist. I decided that my time is just as valuable, and I was losing out on monrey and time with people who were just not serious about booking.

Sine institutung this policy, NC/NSs have 100% disappeared, last minute cancellations and rescheduling has reduced to about 1% and people who are not serious about booking pretty much just dont contact me. I am so much happier and at ease in my practice and can commit myself more deeply to taking care of those who really want to journey with me.

Deposits are non refundable unless I have to cancel, or, if you have to cancel or reschedule with at least a 24hr notice. If you have to cancel within 24hrs of our session time, your deposit cannot be used toward rescheduling. Your deposit is to compensate me for other sessions I could have taken while I was holding your time for you.

Thank you for supporting Bhakti Temple!


                                      

Sign the petition to protect the strippers of Star Garden

Posted on June 7, 2022 at 6:20 PM

The strippers of Star Garden need your help in creating safe working conditions, wipe out punative hiring, and to hopefully unionize.

I am so proud of these performers for standing up to the dangerous business practices that have been happening definitly since the new owners of Star Garden took over, but definitely at strip club locations around the country for decades. As a retired stripper myself, this strike has deep personal meaning to me, and I am spreading the word to help them get what they need. 

This story has gained traction, getting written up in both local and national publications. they have also been invited to be panel speakers at the Labor Notes conference in Chicago.

Reopening and New Protocols

Posted on July 20, 2021 at 5:30 PM

Greetings from Bhakti Temple!

 

It has been a long 15 months. I have deeply missed our connections. I am happy to announce my reopening on June 7th!

I have changed my business model a bit and there will be new, safer protocols.

 

Here is what will be changing:

 

I will only be seeing 1-2 guests per day. Longer sessions will be prioritized.

 

I am fully vaccinated. I am happy to show a copy of my card. Each guest must be vaccinated and show proof of such before booking your appointment. This is non negotiable. If you are of those who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical reasons, I’m sorry I will not be able to see you at this time.

  

I am no longer tolerating no shows and last minute cancellations. Therefore, a $100 non refundable deposit must be made via CashApp, Venmo, Amazon gift code or Bitcoin to secure your spot. If for any reason I am unable to make our appointment, your deposit WILL be returned to you. This applies to all guests, whether I’ve seen you before or not. The balance of your fee is cash only.

 

Masks will not he required, however if you choose to wear one, or would like me to wear one, I am happy to accommodate you.

 

Strict cleaning practices have always been and will continue to be on point at my space. Disposable hand towels will now be used. Sanitized oil bottles will be changed out after each guest, and disposable face covers are still in use. I have an air purifier and two humidifiers to help with the air.

 

One of the biggest changes, for those who have seen me before especially, there are now two Temple pets. Having to close my business for this long drastically changed my living situations.

I now have my 13yr old cat, Pearl, and I rescued a two year old Min Pin, Ezra. They both have the run of my place, but are not allowed on the table, ever. They will both probably say hi, and while Pearl can’t really be bothered, Ezra as a therapy dog in training, will probably want to check in on me once in a while. I am hoping that as he gets used to people here, he will learn there is no need to worry and just hang in the living room.

I keep my place fur free and have a pet hair specific vacuum.

If you don’t like animals or are deeply allergic, I totally understand and finding another practitioner may be best.

 

I think that’s it! I am so excited to get back to the work of giving loving, erotic, and non-judgemental touch. We are all so in need after the past year.
