Update 12/1/2020. For the duration of being located in an orange zone, I will offer medical massage therapy. I will resume spa modalities, after the orange zone ends, which focus on relaxation and reducing stress.


Temporarily, I will offer massage focused on a medical need, targeting issues with a variety of techniques for muscle health and recovery.

During this time, requesting a note from a medical practitioner for a medically required massage is advised. 

Update 11/25/2020. This business is located in an orange micro-cluster zone. Medically necessary massage therapy is considered an "essential health care operation," and is permitted to resume, although massage therapy is included with personal care services that are ordered to close due to the spread of Covid-19. It is advised to request a doctor's note, email, or prescription for "medically necessary massage therapy." If you have questions, please contact Gloria.
