My dearest clients,
I hope this note finds you well. I’ve missed you all so much! I’m sure we will have so much to catch up on but first, we have to talk about a topic you’re surely sick of hearing about, COVID-19.
We had a virus happen and it’s still happening regardless of what the media and the government is reporting. My hesitation in throwing my doors open fully and loading up the calendar is: there is still not enough information for me to safely do so.
The post COVID-19 physical reports are sketchy to say the least. The truest reports I have seen, show that people are living 30 days past their release date. After that, the reports for what Post COVID Syndrome “looks like” hasn’t been fully established to determine if there is contraindication to massage.
I want you to be safe here. I want you to feel at ease here. The following are the changes that have been made to that end. I have read everything from ABMP, WHO, CDC, & most of the EPA about COVID-19 and have made as many changes to my practice as I could. I hope you can see the changes, I know you can smell them because all the pretty oil smells are gone and bleach has taken its place.
THIS IS MY HOME. IT SHARES COMMON UTILITIES AND APPLIANCES WITH MY ENTIRE FAMILY. I AM ADVISING YOU OF THE RISK BEING EXPOSED TO MY FAMILY BRINGS. MY HUSBAND WORKS IN THE FOOD SERVICE INDUSTRY AND IS EXPOSED TO PEOPLE WITHOUT FACE COVERINGS DAILY. WE FOLLOW THESE PROTOCOLS HERE AT HOME TO KEEP US SAFE. WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO OBSERVE THEM ALSO.
