6/9 Update:

At the beginning of the global health crisis, the Arizona Board of Massage Therapy and Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (the professional organization to which I belong) recommended that all therapists suspend operations for at least 4 weeks.

I believe it is in the best interest and health of my Clients, their families and myself and my family to remain closed through July 1.

I hope each of you is taking the precautions that are suggested and that you stay well. I look forward to seeing you on the other side of this challenge. I am working on additional appropriate safety measures to protect both my valued clients and myself so I am prepared to safely provide services when I reopen.
