I do not usually see clients on Saturday or Sunday but will make an exception for regular clients who have an emergency!
I understand that unanticipated events happen occasionally in everyone’s life. In order to be effective and fair to all clients, the following policies are honored:
If you are unable to keep an appointment please let me know as soon as possible--preferably 24 hours-- so I can schedule someone else in that time slot. I understand that emergencies happen (I may have to cancel sometimes too!) so I try to be flexible, but if it becomes habitual I will need you to pay for the missed appointment. No shows are expected to pay for the full session unless there was an emergency. Due to the pandemic--I am asking that if you feel like you may be getting sick, or have been exposed to Covid, please call me to cancel and I will not charge you for the missed appointment.
If you arrive late, your session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the “full” session.
We look forward to serving you!
Greetings! I am fully back to work now seeing clients and planning on classes for this year (scroll down for fall dates). I am fully vaccinated (and I have had Covid!), but I am still asking clients and students to wear masks in the treatment room, since it is a small space and we are close contact. I have always been a bit of a “clean freak” but did amp up my cleaning with the pandemic. All surfaces that are touched are sanitized after every client, and I am allowing more time between appointments so I can open the window and air out the room. I am not offering water after the session like I used to—so please remember to drink plenty of water and herbal teas after your session to stay hydrated! I will continue the same policy I started at the beginning of this in regards to cancellations—if you feel the least bit sick or you have possibly been exposed to Covid, you can call and cancel even at the last minute and there will be no cancellation fee. Same for students—I will refund your deposit if you are sick! I also ask that if you have stopped anyplace before arriving for your appointment (such as shopping) then make a stop in my kitchen or bathroom to thoroughly wash your hands(or if you forgot to do so before leaving home). Hand sanitizer is good, but soap and water is the best!
A note on Holistic health: As a holistic practitioner I go by the original meaning of holistic, which is that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. For health this means considering the body, mind and spirit are one, and that we as individuals are connected to other people and to the environment. It does NOT mean eschewing modern medicine. All medical and health decisions must be made by balancing the risks vs. benefit for any procedure, medication or natural healing methods. I chose to have the vaccine mainly because it offers protection to those who I am in contact with in order to protect them (even more than I am doing it to protect myself). So many people have died or are suffering long term effects from having Covid infection that it is irresponsible in my opinion to not get the vaccine—for most people. There are of course always people who should be exempt from the vaccine because of serious health issues—in that case it is even more vital that they practice safe measures such as mask wearing and social distancing at all times –not just when coming for an appointment!
I also know that herbs and acupressure can be very useful for helping with the symptoms associated with Covid. I am sure that I made it through having Covid without any serious issues because of my use of herbal medicine and doing acupressure on myself, and doing Qigong when I had enough energy to do so. Reducing stress is a big factor for helping your immune system function well and acupressure and massage are excellent for doing that!
I hope to see you soon!
