Happy Spring!

I hope you are enjoying the warmer weather. Just a couple of clinic updates to note.

I will be away on vacation from April 20th until May 3rd and will be unable to respond to phone calls or text messages during this time. Email responses may also be delayed. Reminder that clients can still book online as needed off this website for up to three months in advance.

The clinic continues to be extremely busy and difficult to book into because of this. Since I am currently booked out until June (with very few 30 minute or 45 minute treatment spots available still in May), I am still taking client’s names for the cancellation list. Please reach out via email or text message if you are not able to book for the month of May or June and are interested in an appointment. Providing me with the days and times that would work for you will allow me to contact you if I get an opening.

Starting at the beginning of May, masks will no longer be required for treatment, although they are still strongly recommended to reduce the risk of spreading illness, masking will be up to client comfort level. As the therapist, I will still be masking during all treatments until further notice. If you are sick with COVID, please continue to contact me to reschedule your appointment. If you have any other illness, I highly encourage rescheduling your treatment as it is not recommended to receive massage therapy treatment with any types of head colds or flus as it can circulate the virus throughout the body via the bloodstream and actually make your symptoms worsen. If you have a cough or runny nose, you may be asked to wear a mask to prevent the spread of any germs, even if you are still feeling okay otherwise. Please remember that we can spread illness even if we are not feeling sick; coughs and sneezes may still spread germs that could be harmless for some, but affect another with a weaker immune system. As a medical practitioner, I am someone who is constantly in close contact with the public and my main objective and priority is my client’s health and safety at all times. Thank you in advance for your consideration!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope you get to enjoy this holiday season and have a chance to relax with family and friends. I just wanted to give a clinic update, as 2022 comes to a close. The clinic will be close from the evening of December 23rd until January 3rd. Just a reminder that pre-screenings will no longer be sent out prior to appointments. This will end when the clinic reopens the beginning of January. Please continue to self-monitor and contact me to reschedule your appointment should you exhibit cold, flu, or COVID-like symptoms. Masks will still be mandatory in the clinic and waiting room areas until further notice.

I have recently taken another course on modern cupping to continue to advance my skills for client benefits. This advanced cupping course covered treatment for different scar tissues, pathologies, magnet cupping therapy, nerve tracking, and cupping for deeper muscles in the body. Modern cupping is wonderful for those who have nerve conditions as it uses negative pressure to treat neural problems which can help reduce tension and pain. Cupping can also help with muscle adhesions, lymph drainage, increasing circulation, and reducing inflammation in the body. Sometimes our bodies soft tissues don’t respond as well to manual therapies that apply positive pressure, such as massage treatments, so cupping can be a good alternative instead. Every individual’s body will react differently to cupping as we are all unique; if you are interested in receiving cupping treatment, book a massage or ask me if cupping may be right for your next treatment. I look forward to seeing you in the new year!

In Health,

COVID-19 Update

Due to the State of Emergency announced in Waterloo Region this past week and the mandate put forth by PHA and my governing college (CMTO), I will be temporarily keeping my Massage Therapy Clinic closed at this time. As I am unsure as to when it will be safe to reopen, I will be contacting clients on a weekly basis who have an upcoming appointment to cancel their treatments and will be placing them on a rebook list for when this outbreak has passed.
