How many emails have you already received with COVID-19 in the subject line?
Here is mine.
I’ve arrived at the hard decision to suspend my massage therapy practice from now through March 27, or until the signs are clear that re-opening is safe and responsible.
If you have an appointment scheduled during this time, I will follow-up directly with you to reschedule. But please read on…
As you know, I follow careful infection control in my office. Added measures, while helpful in reducing risk, do not fully address the need to “flatten the curve” of COVID-19 cases through social distancing. At this point, epidemiologists, government agencies, and school departments all point to the importance of minimizing close contact.
For the record, though, I want you to know that the contact we have is the highlight of my week. I will miss greeting you, talking with you, and providing you with this service. I always look forward to seeing you.
These are strange, frightening times. If you are already walking a hard road through health and healthcare, you might feel even more vulnerable and isolated than usual. Please reach out if you like. Let me know how you are doing. I am still here, and I welcome any and all email or phone updates.
Thank you for being a client or friend of my practice. I hope the weeks ahead are as smooth as possible for you and for everyone you hold dear.
I can’t wait to see you on the other side of this crisis.
