Good news everyone! We have new orders that mean that my doors will be allowed to re-open (somewhat). See the the stipulations listed below. I will not need a written prescription, but a verbal okay from the healthcare practitioner who determined a massage was medically necessary.
See below for Clarification of Massage Therapy Services Allowed
APRIL 22, 2020 per Governor Abbott
A massage therapist may only provide massage services if it is medically necessary. This determination must be made by the client’s physician or chiropractor.
Massage therapists may not provide massage services for general wellness or other non-medical necessity reasons.
In order for each others safety, temperature checks will take place before getting on the table. We will both wear masks over the nose and mouth, with the exception, if you would like to move it from your nose while positioned face down in the face cradle. I have purchased double protection disposable face covers for additional precautions.

Just the other day, an old friend gave me a very insightful compliment. It turned out to be more valuable than I could have anticipated, as with one single phone call, my carefree Saturday went from playful and free to concerned and helpless. I found myself drawing from his earlier words, as they helped me to remember that ultimately I am patient and I am strong.
Being miles away from the situation, there was nothing I could personally do to assist except to be present when the phone rang again. As hard as it is for me to feel helpless, I know that if I was a witness to pain or anguish in someone that I love, I would want someone to talk to. So I pulled strength from my friend’s earlier comment, and just sat patiently with the fact that things were out of my hands. What I could control was being there when I was needed. I could push my own fears aside and be completely present for someone else.
So in gratitude for my friend’s kind words, I want to remind us all that our words matter. I think it is important to use them wisely and with care, as they can be more powerful than you know. So if you’re thinking about giving someone a compliment, like Nike says “Just Do It!” I found truth in the saying that a sincere compliment boosts one’s morale. You never know, what you say may change someone elses’ day too!
