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
As many of my clients know, I was down and out with Covid in the middle and end of February. To celebrate my recovery last week, I accidentally tripped down my stairs resulting in a badly sprained right ankle. I am currently in a boot per the ortho's orders with a follow-up appointment scheduled for next week Thursday. As I cannot currently put weight on my foot at the moment, I unfortunately cannot work properly right now.
For anyone looking for a massage right away, I recommend my wonderful friends and colleagues to take care of you while I am recovering:
I will hopefully be out of the boot, healed up, and back to work soon, as I haven't been able to serve my clients since before I contracted Covid; I miss you all a ton!
GENERAL BUSINESS UPDATE - I have been taking this time off to reflect on both personal and business matters, and I have decided to remove the Holistic Wellness Coaching offerings from my services for the time being. I have realized that, while I am passionate about health and wellness as a whole and want to do everything I can to help my clients heal, my true passion lies in bodywork (myofascial release specifically), and I was spreading myself too thin and trying to do too much. I do have a network of health professionals if you are in need of a service I do not offer, and will do my best to refer you to someone who can assist you with your particular needs.
