With heavy heart... I struggle to put into words just what I want to say to my dear clients who have been such a large part of my life over the last 27 years. In the midst of so much uncertainty, I feel that now is not the time for me to return to my practice. On March 13th, I closed my office because I knew that I couldn't definitely keep my clients and myself safe. As we move into Phase 2, I have to ask, "What is better now that I feel it is safe to return?" The answer is that it is worse. And there is still so very much that we don't know. I want so desperately for my reopening to be about disinfecting and wearing a mask. But there is so much more. What if a client, a coworker, a coworker's client, or I test positive? The idea of calling clients to inform them that they may have been exposed makes my head spin and my heart hurt. Then there is the issue of blood clots. Covid patients, often young, are having strokes from blood clots. Can an asymptomatic person be developing blood clots with their only symptom being deep muscle pain (the very reason they came to see me?) We just don't know. I am constantly reading to learn everything I can about Covid and how it affects my industry. New research is coming out all the time. Our industry leaders are writing articles to keep us informed. Private facebook groups are sharing stories, research and resources. Each massage therapist is now faced with the very deep and personal decision as to when and how to reopen. If you choose to receive a massage, please know that behind that "Woo-Hoo, we are open and excited to see you," lies hours of stress, concern, reading, developing policies, and taking every possible step to keep you safe. These are not easy times. I am not stopping my practice completely. I am going on an extended pause. One day we will work together again.
Stay safe and well, Carolyn
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Hi Friend, and Welcome! We all lead busy lives. We have families, homes, jobs, communities. Sometimes caring for ourselves gets put on the back burner. But self care - Outrageous Self Care - is so important to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. So if self care is on your mind, you've come to the right place! While there is no shortage of pampering, treatment is at the center of what I do. Whether it's tight neck and shoulder muscles, a repetitive use injury, or simply a reprieve from a hectic day, a personally tailored massage therapy session is a phone call away! I am delighted to now offer Oncology Massage for anyone who has a diagnosis of cancer. My in-depth training has taught me how to safely work with clients during and after cancer treatments. If you, or anyone you love, is living with cancer, please check out my page on this new specialty in my practice. And of course, please call, text, or email with any questions. My Greenville, North Carolina office is nestled in a quiet business park off of Red Banks Road. It is not a spa. It is not a medical center.
