COVID-19 Update

May 29th Update: I am evaluating the Phase 3 Personal Care Service Guidelines as well as recommendations from experts in my profession. Right now, I just don’t have enough information to be able to give you informed consent about the risks of transmission and other health risks so you and I can weigh the risks and benefits of massage for your particular situation.

I’ve been learning as much as I can on the topic, and next week I’ll be attending a virtual meeting with Ruth Werner, an authority on pathology for Massage Therapists. I hope to have an update in the next few weeks.

I truly appreciate your support of my very small business,

Karyn has magic feet:) My Ashiatsu massage was the best massage I’ve had. I had been building up some muscle aches from lots of biking. Karyn really worked those areas. Two days after my massage I went for a 3 hour bike ride and felt great afterwards. Pat M  

Karyn is absolutely amazing! She is attentive to what I need and checks in throughout my massages to make sure she doesn’t need to go over any other areas again. She is professional and really listens to my areas of concern. As a night RN with a constantly changing schedule, I have no issues getting … Continue reading
