As of Friday, 13 November 2020, I am officially a Certified Nutrition Coach! I completed the self-study program through Precision Nutrition and am excited to be able to offer this service to my clients. My goal has always been to "change the world one person at a time through healing and health," as it says in both my bio and on my personal and business Facebook pages, and by adding nutrition coaching to my offerings I can continue to help my clients in an ever-expanding lens of holistic care. A la carte services and packages will be added to the website shortly, so keep an eye out for that!
According to the business guidance of NY Executive Order 202.68, "medically necessary massage therapy" is now considered an essential health care operation and may continue to be practiced in both orange and red zones. This was further expounded upon by the American Massage Therapy Association-NY Chapter in an emailed statement that can be read here.
This brings such joy to my heart, because it seems that my profession is finally starting to be recognized by the medical field as a legitimate health service and not just a "froufrou" leisure expense. My passion has always been to work through a holistic lens, primarily with clients who are living with chronic pain and seeking pain management and reduction; recovering from accidents, injuries, or surgeries; or ready to release their traumas and experience true healing. During this uncertain time, I have been presented with an opportunity to pivot - to refocus my business, to rebrand, to reach my target demographic in an even better way. Even though 2020 has admittedly been a dumpster fire of a year for most of us, I am grateful for this inspiration and opportunity to grow.
With all the above being said, general relaxation massage sessions - namely Full-Body Swedish Massages and Hot Stone Massages - and in-person energy healing sessions (not including add-ons) are temporarily suspended until Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. My in-person therapeutic massage and myofascial release offerings are still available, as well as energy healing and kineseology taping add-ons. For clients who are uncomfortable receiving in-person treatment at this time, I do have distance healing and myofascial stretch sessions available.
Any Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday relaxation session purchases will be loaded onto the client's account to be redeemed after Covid restrictions have been lifted.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all out-call services (White Glove Luxury Massage & Chair Massage) are suspended by government mandate until further notice. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
I am elated to announce that I will be reopening on Sunday, August 2nd! It has been a long and hard 4+ months of being closed and not being able to work on you, my beloved clients, but upon receiving the shipping notification of my very last back-ordered PPE today, I can finally schedule the reopening of my doors!
With that being said, there are of course new COVID-19 Policies and Procedures in place. Please review those here before scheduling an appointment.
For anyone who is uneasy about hands-on, in-person work during this difficult time, I am offering Remote Myofascial Stretch and Distance Energy Healing sessions.
I can't wait to see you all back on my table!
After much tough deliberation, I have made the decision to temporarily close my doors. Those of you that know me well know that this was an incredibly hard decision, though I feel a necessary one to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Helping others on their healing journeys is my passion, and being a hands-on agent of healing who can’t do hands-on healing right now is devastating.
The temporary closure will be re-evaluated at the end of March, at which time I will decide - based off what’s going on locally with the pandemic - whether reopening my doors would be safe. The absolute last thing I want to do is unknowingly spread the virus to my clients; I care about you all too much.
If you would still like to support me during this time, I do offer Distance Energy Healing sessions. I also have gift certificates, massage packages, and MFR packages that can be purchased now for use at a later time.
Please stay safe and as healthy as you can, everyone. Stay hydrated. Wash your hands. Reach out to your family, friends, neighbors, acquaintances. I’ll be posting live videos from my personal and business Facebook pages to help lighten the mood a little, to do what I can to bring you another type of healing. If I can’t figure out how to screen share in Facebook Like videos, I may start hosting Zoom meetings so we can all still be social while at the same time practicing social distancing and being in various levels of isolation and quarantine.
I love you. Stay safe.
