I am still following all of the state and local guidelines for massage during this time. In between each client every surface/massage tool is disinfected and I change clothes. Masks are required for me and the client at all times, and both of our temperatures are checked. There will be a Covid-19 questionnaire to fill out each time you visit. And as always, linens are changed for every person and my hands are always scrubbed up past my elbow before and after each service (and all day really!).
I look forward to seeing you soon at the office soon! For those of you who are not able to receive massage during this time because of health concerns, I totally understand and will be here for you when you are ready to come back. A vaccine looks like it is on the not-too-distant horizon and with any luck it will be what we need to get back to normal!
Stay safe and thanks again,
My name is Melanie and I'm a Certified Massage Therapist, Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist, a Board Certified Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork professional, and a Certified Yoga Teacher. I'm so glad that you found my page and I hope that I can help you and your family find a higher quality of life through massage therapy.
You may already know a lot about massage but if you don't here's a brief explanation:
Massage is the manipulation of the muscles and fascia (connective tissue) using the hands and other tools to release tension and correct improper muscle firing to alleviate pain and correct imbalances in the body. Massage therapy is a fantastic tool in loosening tense muscles and restoring balance to the body to relieve pain. It can help people of all ages and with many different health care considerations find a way alleviate or at least manage painful conditions.
In addition, massage is a great way to relax and relieve stress and anxiety in both adults and children. In today's techno gadget go go world, we can all benefit by reconnecting with our bodies through a nice relaxing and restorative massage.
