I am writing to you this evening after several emails and texts from patients with not a lot of answers. NY State has not placed massage therapy into a “phase” for reopening. So here we sit, 11 weeks after I closed my doors in March waiting for guidance and a date that I can resume practice. This is the longest I have been out of the office since I opened in 2009; even longer than maternity leave!
I am reviewing guidelines put out by several national organizations in preparation for re-opening. Things may look a little different the next time you are in as a result.
I love what I do and do not want to jeopardize myself or anyone else. Your health and safety, just like mine, are of absolute importance. We all have husbands/wives/partners, children/stepchildren, parents, and extended family we want to continue to be around for in the future. Trust me – I could use a massage right now, too!
On that note – If you are not on my list to contact for an appointment once I am able to work again, please let me know if you would like your name to be added.
I hope this email finds you well. The weather has turned nice finally, so we have that wonderful sunshine to help keep our spirits up! I will update you again when I know more about reopening.
In the meantime, feel free to reach out to me with any questions or comments you may have.
