We are open during COVID-19

Things may look a little bit different and there may be a few extra steps but I am here for you during this pandemic! Unless Massage Therapists are mandated to close by the province we will remain open following direction and recommendations from our provincial associations. I am watching for updates from the province and the Massage Therapists’ Association of Nova Scotia and implementing changes to our infection control protocols as advised. I am also paying close attention the health of myself and my family as this is a home based practice. At times I may need to enforce temporary closures or postpone scheduled services to prioritize everyone’s health and safety.

Some measures we have always had in place both as health professionals and also in our practice and some are enhanced during this time. I truly appreciate your understanding an cooperation.
