Dearest Clients…

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing you:  Due to the pandemic I have decided to close my practice. After months of shelter in place and watching the progression of the pandemic; I have come to the conclusion that I will be unable to practice bodywork safely for my clients and myself at this point in time and certainly not for the near future.  Indeed, Contra Costa County has not allowed massage and bodywork to be practiced here since March.

I am not sure what the future holds for me regarding practicing again. I hope to stay in touch with you all via email should things change and I am able to work again. I am happy to refer you to practitioners who are working, and I can include one person here:  Moon is a craniosacral practitioner, and she can be reached at 415-385-2052.

I hope that you and yours are well and staying safe during this time. Know that I truly cherish my time as a practitioner. I hold my time with each and every client close to my heart.

My best to you,
Nancy

Previous message during the Pandemic:   I hope that you and your loved ones are well and staying safe during this challenging time. I wanted to let you know the status of my practice due to the pandemic. Each county must determine the date on which massage practitioners and body workers are allowed to resume practice. Meanwhile, the national and state associations I belong to are saying that hands-on work is too risky for both practitioners and clients at this time. I am also personally concerned about working due to preexisting health concerns. Therefore, I am not planning to begin working again any time soon.

Be assured that I am monitoring the situation daily and constantly reassessing, and I will keep you updated on any changes to my being able to practice again. I am sorry that I cannot be there for you in this difficult time. I hope that you have found some nourishing ways to take care of yourself — and that you continue to be well.

Overview of Nancy's practice prior to closure:   Health, balance and well-being are at the core of Nancy's work with clients. Reconnecting to our wholeness with mind, body, heart, and spirit is crucial to our well-being. Nancy's work allows the connection and balance to take place through her gentle techniques and within a nurturing, healing environment. The style of body work Nancy has developed involves a combination of acupressure and CranioSacral Therapy, including direct, indirect cranial therapy, connective tissue work, visceral manipulation techniques and Lymph Drainage Therapy. This blend of techniques creates a healing and relaxing experience for the recipient.
