As much as look forward to working with you massage and bodywork just is not appropriate care for infectious or contagious illnesses. We are a team and to keep us all healthy I appreciate your canceling your appointment as soon as you are aware of any infectious or contagious condition, we can happily reschedule when you are feeling better.
I’ve included the basic Covid 19 screening questions that are recommended by the AMBP (associated massage and bodywork professionals)
1. Have you had a fever in the last 24 hours of 100°F or above?
2. Do you now, or have you recently had, any respiratory or flu symptoms, sore throat, or shortness of breath?
3. Do you now, or have you recently had, any chills, muscle aches, new loss of taste or smell, or new rashes or lesions?
4. Have you been in contact with anyone in the last 14 days who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or has coronavirus-type symptoms?
Thank you for helping us be healthy together.
Yours in health, Pam

Zero Balancing is a mind-body approach that I use in my massage practice. It was created by Fritz Smith, M.D. as a way to treat issues related to the body's energy and structure.
“ZB is a healing system whose principles work in harmony with the natural world, sharing much in common with meditation, yoga, qigong, tai chi, and other eastern practices which promote deep relaxation of the body and mind. During a session, you may feel a stillness of body and mind greater than you’ve ever experienced. Following a session when you stand up and walk, you may feel both grounded and effortlessly uplifted, yet stable and supported by the earth, your muscles at ease, feeling open, relaxed, and alive. A ZB session usually lasts 30-45 minutes and is safe for any group. During the session, you lie supine on a massage table fully dressed in loose, comfortable clothing. Then your entire body is engaged by placing gentle pressure or traction into key joints and locations.” (From www.zerobalancing.com)
I’ve found ZB so rejuvenating and life-changing I’m inspired to share this modality in my practice.
