Coronavirus response

Update 6/19/2020:

All clinical and therapeutic massage services are suspended until further notice. This is a difficult decision made based on epidemiological data as well as personal and professional responsibilities to ensure the safest possible reopening when the time comes.

Due to the recent guidelines surrounding coronavirus and the seriousness of the disease it causes, I am closing my schedule until at least June 10, 2020 per Virginia's stay-at-home order. All gift certificates which expired after March 15, 2020 will be extended for the full amount of time of closure.

Many of my clients are elderly, have major chronic illnesses, or are primary caregivers to those who live with them. Compromising their vulnerable health by going from one client to the next, regardless of the best practices of hand washing and disinfection, does not align with the practice of social distancing.

Social distancing is necessary to stop the spread of coronavirus and also to prevent taxing and burning out our healthcare system. Our physicians, nurses, and their support staff are at high risk too and we need to be mindful of our human and medical resources at this time. I send you all my best wishes and will see you when we're on the other side of this global pandemic.
