The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) is also strongly recommending that massage therapists exert their best judgement when deciding to continue their practice during this time, while emphasizing to that only only medically necessary massage should be practiced until further notice and that massage therapists should obide by regulations set in place by state and federal legislators.
Though we are saddened by our inability to further serve our loyal clients - we are confident in the decision to help cease the spread of the Coronavirus so that our friends, neighbors, family, and community members are safe.
Keep in mind that this virus is spreading quickly; individuals may not show signs of COVID-19 upwards of 2-14 days. This virus can be spread from person to person before symptoms are present, but can also be spread by passing objects/items or on surfaces. Remember to wash your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds, use hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol content or more, and keep your distance socially when able.
Until we are available to serve you again, gift certificates are available for all durations of massages, including 60, 90, and 120 minute massage sessions.
