It pains me deeply to make this decision, but I will be temporarily closing the practice immediately due to COVID-19. With the statement the Governor made today and the recommendation of my massage association, it is in the best interest for all and I want to do my part to keep you safe. At this time, I plan to reopen on May 4th, or when it is safe.I will be canceling all appointments through this time. . I won't be refunding any prepaid massages or gift certificates; they will all remain valid for when I am able to safely reopen.
If you feel like paying it forward, consider purchasing an online gift certificate for someone in the health care field. When this all calms down, they will need a massage more than ever.
Thank you everyone for your understanding during this difficult time for all of us! Stay healthy, practice social distancing, and most of all try to remain positive as this is all temporary.
I'm Rose Thunder, Certified Massage Therapist. I enjoy my job and the people I meet every day! Most people suffer from stress from their busy lives, a recent study showed that over 85% of illnesses are connected to stress. Allowing yourself the time to relax and de-stress can help you regain the balance you need in your life. I will strive to help facilitate healthy change in soft tissue to promote pain reduction and tissue recovery. I don't believe that more pain equals more gain. You should not hurt during or after a massage, your body does respond to gentle movement too.
In 2015, I took advanced training to help those with Fertility Issues, Nurturing the Mother and training for Oncology Massage, Caring for Cancer Clients. Both trainings were very personal for me and makes me certain that I'm in the massage field to support those going through difficult times. I can not make someone conceive but I can be there to support them on their journey. The care and compassion given to those at any stage of cancer can be supported with massage. I am honored to be there for those needed these services. To me, learning never ends. I continue to take training in different modalities (types of therapy) that will assist my clients to feeling better.
I have the honor of working closely with other amazing massage therapists within St. Michael Massage and Bodywork. If I am not available, I would recommend seeing another therapist at our location. We are here to serve and help you!
Every client will be treated with respect and the care they deserve. I will customize a session just for you! I hope to see you soon!
