I would be remiss to let this week pass without saying how grateful I am for you. Being able to welcome you into my room, be sad and happy together, and enter the world of bodywork has made this year bearable. Many people have not been able to work as the pandemic drags on, and I feel so fortunate to go to work every day.

It takes a lot more awareness, work, and laundry, but it is so worth it. Thank you for being conscientious and honest. By showing up only 5 minutes before your appointment, we reduce time talking in an enclosed room. I am always available by phone or email to discuss treatment goals further. With your help, I continue to feel it is possible to provide Thai, Lomi Lomi, and table massage with safety. I want to remind everyone that although the restroom at Nature’s is not open to the public, it is always available to you before or after your massage. Or both!


Since returning to work, I have cut back my hours and see only 3 people each day, and only 4 days a week. I apologize for the difficulty scheduling. It works best for both of us if you can look ahead and put at least two appointments in our books, to make sure you get a date that works for you. There are also many other wonderful LMT’s in the area who may get you in sooner. See my Recommendations for a list. You will also find a description of all the types of bodywork I offer. Perhaps it’s time to try something new!


Gift certificates can be purchased at the front desk at Nature’s as usual, with the understanding that it may take a while for an appointment. Payment can be by check or cash. 


We never thought we would still have such high numbers of infection in our area at this stage of 2021, and that so many friends, relatives and neighbors would get very sick, or die.


Whatever your health situation, I wish for you the ability to take good safety precautions while still living a life you enjoy. I hope you can get outside and breathe our good North Country air. 


We’ll be having very small holiday gatherings, and I hope that yours are full of good food, good health, and a peaceful heart.


Love and peace,
