PandemicPrecautions

In this season of social distancing, as of May 15th, 2020, I can once again offer you "the best 90 minutes of the week!!" 

Toby and I have been so blessed to remain healthy and strong throughout the last several months, and all of my clients have also remained CoVid-19 clear!! There has been no one in the therapy room between March 24th and May 15th. Please know that I am continuing to take every precaution I physically can, to keep door handles, the therapy room, the rest room, and myself disinfected between clients (changing table linens of course, but also my clothing, washing my hands and arms with Thieves foaming soap and then wearing gloves until I enter the therapy room, spraying myself, the table and other items in the therapy room with hydrogen peroxide, continuing to wear my face covering throughout your appointment, and of course, diffusing, diffusing, diffusing Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils throughout the entire place).

>If you are feeling ill or have been in contact with someone who is, please reschedule your appointment and I will do my best to get you in as soon as you are better.  Please reschedule your appointment after your symptoms have disappeared for a couple of weeks.

>If you are more comfortable also wearing a mask, you are welcome to do so, however it will make breathing much more difficult for you when you are face down, and will have to be removed when I address your neck, face and scalp. 

>If the garage door is closed, or there is a car parked in my garage when you arrive, please wait 5-10 minutes after that car leaves, to allow me time to change clothes, disinfect door handles, etc, and prepare the therapy room for you. 

>If you’re looking for more ways to protect yourself and your loved ones, check out the CDC website.

>You may continue to pay with cash or check, or via my Square app on my phone. I suggest you bring your own stylus, to sign my screen, so that you do not need to touch my phone.

They may be redeemed at any time from now until after this current situation is finally over (and it will be - I am faithful!). And boy!! Don't we all NEED an exceptionally good massage, as we soldier through this?!?!? (See my comments below (**) for proven benefits massage provides to the immune system!)

You may call me to place your gift certificate order, and I will process it using my Square app. You will receive a receipt via text or email. I will add the gift certificate purchase to your record sheet on my books, so no paper or tangible items will be exchanged (aren't we blessed to have the technology to do this today?!?!?)

Thank you all for your faithful loyalty to Compassionate Spirit!  It means the world to me, and is what helped me get through the last couple of months, with no income, but knowing you would be there for me when I could resume my practice. Please know I am here waiting and ready for you!!

Here are just a few recent research studies to support this effect, as published on www.PubMed.gov, a site administered by the National Institute of Health, that is a library of international medical research:
