As announced in the September newsletter, we will have new pricing going into effect on November 1st: all sessions will now be priced the same and based off length of time. This will create more effective sessions for both clients and therapists, as well as make it possible to redeem gift certificates and packages on multiple services. There will also be a small increase for 60min and 90min sessions. This change will be reflected in all sessions currently scheduled.
As always, thank you for your continued support! We have some BIG NEWS to share in our next newsletter, so make sure you are subscribed (you can join the newsletter on the Contact page). And if you'd like to keep up with what we're doing on a more regular basis, follow us on Instagram: @ouroborostherapeuticarts.
Now Offering Manual Lymphatic Drainage!
We are very excited to announce that we area now offering Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) services! This is a gentle, hands-on bodywork modality that targets the lymphatic system, which plays a large role in overall health and immunity. Receiving these types of treatments is especially helpful if you have swelling, edema, are recovering from injuries or surgeries, and can help with skin-related issues such as acne, rosacea, or eczema. MLD is both a standalone service and can also be incorporated into the integrative therapeutic sessions. To learn more about this style of bodywork and how it could benefit you, visit our new webpage and book today!
Tarot & Energy Work Services
At the end of last year, we made the announcement that we would no longer be taking new tarot clients. Well, you asked and we listened! Due to continued interest from the public, we have brought these services back for all to book. You can find them again both on our website and through our booking software.
There has also recently been an interest in more in-depth and advanced energetic workings. If you have a particular need that Kristina, our head therapist and ordained priestess, may be able to assist with, please contact us directly.
Relax - We Got You!
Another two services that we announced would be discontinued for new clients this year - Swedish and Hot Stone Massage - will indeed be sticking around! Sometimes, the most healing thing for a person's soul is an hour of gentle bodywork. As we are committed to your health and well-being, we will continue to offer these services for all who may be in need.
At the beginning of April we will be implementing a small price increase to keep up with increased cost of living. Thank you for your understanding.
To all our loyal clients, your continued support means the world to us. Whether you are continuing to book with us or are referring your friends and family, you are not only healing yourselves but are helping make our dream come true - to change the world one person at a time through holistic healing and health.
We can't wait to see you again soon!
We have been featured in a publication for the first time!
As a sponsor and supporter of STROLL Woods and Park, a local magazine, we had the chance to write a business sponsor piece to introduce ourselves to the community and tell everyone a little bit about what we do. If you'd like to read the write up, click on the PDF link below!
The changeover from ouroborosmassage.com to ouroborostherapeuticarts.com has finally - and successfully - been done!
The old URL still exists, as many people may have that address saved/bookmarked. It should now automatically forward to the new URL.
Currently the only issue seems to be that Google search results haven't yet updated, but I have already brought the change to Google's attention and hopefully the updates will occur shortly.
As Covid-19 transmission numbers continue to decline, we have decided to make adjustments to our mask policy:
With the mask mandate in Erie County having recently been lifted, it is now up to each individual business to decide whether or not they will require that patrons continue wearing masks. As the practice is run out of my home, I ask that all clients continue to wear masks for all appointments to keep everyone safe, and as someone who has had Covid twice now, I would like to avoid getting it a third time so that I can stay open to continue to help heal my clients, so please help me do just that! I will be keeping an eye on the numbers, and as long as the infection rate stays down then I will be revisiting the mask policy in the future.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Attention all clients and potential clients:
As COVID-19 infection rates are increasing again, I am re-implementing the mask policy. All clients, regardless of vaccination status, must be wearing a mask during their session. You will be allowed to remove the mask while face down on the table, but the mask must be properly in place for all other parts of your appointment.
Please see the updated COVID-19 procedures if you have any questions.
Thank you for your cooperation, and I look forward to serving you soon.
As some time has passed since New York State reached the proper benchmark for vaccination and lifted restrictions, I have decided that it is safe enough to also do so for my practice:
Please visit the Covid-19 page to read the fully updated procedures.
It's June, which means 10% off ALL SESSIONS for the entire month! Why? Because June is my birthday month, so I have decided that all of my clients deserve presents. There is also *no limit* to the number of sessions an individual can book, so make sure to book your appointments sooner rather than later to get your desired time slots!
See you soon!
(Discount is not applicable to packages, which are already offered at a discounted rate.)
It both saddens and frustrates me to announce yet another temporary closure for 2021. On Wednesday, 3/25, right after I had reopened from spraining my right ankle and had begun seeing clients again, my left ankle collapsed under me while I was descending a flight of stairs resulting in another sprain. I am currently trying to heal and rehab two sprained ankles, and I cannot at the moment stand or walk without pain meaning I cannot massage.
To heal properly and avoid further injury, and also due to having a week-long seminar on the books, it is very possible that I may be closed for the entirety of April; I will, of course, keep everyone updated and let you know as soon as I am able to reopen and be working on you all again. I am hoping that I will be back up and running sooner rather than later.
For the time being, if you are in need of a massage while I am out of commission I highly recommend my colleagues:
•Robin Weiss, Forget Me Not Wellness (Amherst)
•Arlynn Knauff, Mind and Matter Well Being (Amherst)
•Phil Wackerfuss, The Body Essential (Williamsville)
•Laura Floss-Wilson, B Well Massage and Esthetics (Williamsville)
•Cailey Martin, Purely Connected (Kenmore)
These are just a few of my wonderful friends and colleagues, and if you are searching for an interim therapist in a different area I can potentially find someone else for you as well.
I am so sorry to have to be closing yet again. I’m not sure what’s up with 2021 for me, but I am hoping I got all the bad luck/accidents out of the way in the first quarter so that I can get back to doing what I love - helping you on your healing journeys.
In love and health,
-Kristina N. Murray, LMT
