It is difficult to believe a whole year has gone by since everything changed. I am really grateful that so many of you have reached out to schedule bodywork after getting fully vaccinated. Being a front-line worker, I too opted for the vaccine as soon as it was offered. From what I have witnessed, I sure hope it can offer protection to us all and especially our most vulnerable populations.
I would love to say that things have gotten easier, but this virus is mean and nasty, and it loves to linger. In the past three months, my heart has broken more than in all my 30 years of this work. From my vantage point, things might be starting to stabilize, yet we are still on lockdown wearing full protective gear. The N95 mask often leaving marks on my face that last all day. The complications from this invisible assailant seem endless.
With this said, I wish to clarify that Austin Body Therapeutic Center will continue to require face coverings for both practitioner and client. The well-being of my clients and my community remain my top priority.
