Covid-19 updates


As of right now (April 20) we have our schedules closed until May 1. However, I have a feeling that we will be closing our books even longer while we wait for what kind of re-opening plan Governor Whitmer is planning on instituting.

Given the nature of our business, obviously we are at higher risk than say, a bookkeeper, but at a lower risk than a dentists office. On a scale of 1-100, massage therapy scored 52.8.

When friends (including clients, because you are all considered friends) ask “when are you going to be able to reopen?” the simple answer is:

I don’t know.

What I do know is that we are actively working on implementing plans to expand our safety and sanitation procedures when we do re-open. Thankfully, we were taught in school and always follow proper hygiene protocols but when we re-open we will be doing the following:

  • Requiring everyone to fill out a pre-screening form 24 hours before their appointment (so if necessary, we can reschedule before we have you come in)
  • Limiting the number of appointments per day as well as expanding our time between appointments to give us time to further disinfect our treatment rooms
  • Hand sanitizer as soon as you walk in the door and shoes will be left in the lobby 
  • Air purifiers in all of the rooms as well as the lobby
  • Fresh blankets for each session
  • Brenda, Naomi and myself will be wearing masks 
Truth be told, I have no idea what things are going to look like when we can resume operations. I don’t know if the city or county is going to implement any further precautions or restrictions.

What I do know is that I am not going to let something like a pandemic ruin Michigan Massage and Wellness

If I can be completely transparent here, Michigan Massage and Wellness is all I know. Being a massage therapist is all I know how to do. Sure, I can teach a stretching and mobility class, and I think I can run a business (because I’ve been doing it for 15 years) but this is my home. It’s what I do, it’s what I am great at and it’s what I love. I have a fantastic team of two therapists that are like family to me, and I can’t wait until we can get back to whatever our new normal is.

In the meantime, check out our other resources

If you haven’t yet, we’d love a like! I’m popping in from time to time to do a quick stretch, share other useful information and of course, photos of my dogs living their best shelter in place life.

I’ve been having a blast doing short mini-classes in our Facebook group. And they’re all in the ‘past events’ tab so you can watch anytime!

Stretch Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself was made for that quarantine life! This is the perfect program for you to use while you can’t get to the gym or your regular yoga classes and you just need some movement breaks throughout the day.
