Dear Friends and Clients,

There are two main things I love about Winter. One is having the opportunity to keep everyone cozy and warm here in the massage room. Be sure to ask for more heat if you need it! Hands, feet, back, I’ll make sure you are just right. 

 

And I can turn that thing down too! Let me know if you need your feet uncovered or one less blanket. It’s your spot to create perfect comfort. I have been taking some time to create a new playlist. There is so much great music for massage. It has given me a whole new reason to go to work; pretty energized by the new tunes!

 

If there is something you would like to listen to during your massage, I can provide that for you easily these days. Just ask and we’ll play it.

 

If you are thinking about buying someone the gift of massage, I have some helpful tips for you. Jean Williams-Bergen and I do still sell Gift Certificates here at Nature’s Storehouse. The staff handles them for me up at the counter, cash or check payment. Since I am gone for 6 weeks in Spring, please note that your recipient will not be able to book with me till April, at the earliest.

 

I no longer sell Gift Certificates online. The reason  is that my schedule is filled way ahead, and I can’t accommodate new clients with Gift Certificates. But the good news is that there are numerous other wonderful, talented Massage Therapists in the North Country who can get people in much sooner, and some of them also provide GC sales online. That makes it so easy, and is my go-to gift for all occasions. You can find a list of local LMTs on my “Recommendations” page. 

 

A number of you have tried something new with Lomi Lomi or Thai in recent months, some even crossing over to become regulars with these new styles. I really appreciate your spirit of adventure! It is so much fun for me to dive into these modalities and introduce you to a new experience. Keeping my work varied has allowed me to enjoy 26 years of bodywork with no injuries, burnout or boredom. Thank you.

 

Covid updates: Air filters and airing out of the room is still in place.  If you are feeling well, and have not been exposed to anyone with Covid or any symptoms, a mask is optional for you. I am still wearing a mask at all times in the massage room, for your safety and mine. 

 

The second thing I love about Winter is being in the snowy woods.

 

Getting through the winter season is much easier if you can get outside, breathe the fresh air, and keep a daily habit of movement. Also, allowing our bodies to get the rest we need is so important. In these months near the Solstice, I can’t believe how much sleep my body asks for. It wants to hibernate!

 

Happy and Safe Winter season to you and yours.
Peace,

Cancellation Policy

 

If you need to cancel or reschedule your massage, please call or text me at least 24 hours in advance. If you do not let me know before the appointment time, you will be billed for 1/2 the cost of the session you missed.

 

If you are sick, please stay home; you will not be charged. Same is true for scary winter weather. Just be sure to contact me to let me know.

 

Thank you for your understanding.
