As of January 12th, 2021, the Ontario Government has declared a second provincial emergency, issued a stay-at-home order and introduced enhanced enforcement measures.
Under the restriction, regulated health professions, including Registered Massage Therapists, are allowed to continue practicing. Unfortunately my office in GoodLife Fitness North York Sheppard and Consumers Club remains closed, but I am still available at North York Healthcare Associates (2255 Sheppard Avenue East, Suite 300) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 1pm.

If you are thinking of booking an appointment, it is highly encouraged to consider if the benefit of receiving massage therapy outweighs the risk of potential infection. I make every effort to keep the treatment room clean and safe by sanitizing after every client, however it does not guarantee that you may not be exposed to potential infection should you choose to leave your home.
I am happy to offer suggestions for potential self-care that may help you feel better via email if you need.
Also, please be compliant with the safety protocols of the clinic. They will send you an online screening form prior to your appointment. Please fill out the form by answering the questions candidly. If you have any symptoms, or may have potentially been exposed to COVID-19, please contact the clinic immediately to cancel or reschedule your appointment. There is no charge for same day cancellation under these circumstances, and I thank you for making a responsible health decision.
Times have been quite rough for all of us, and I do hope all of my valued clients stay safe and well. I hope to open my office again soon, and I do believe the day will come eventually.
Thank you very much for your support for my practice.
