As of April 16th, 2021, the Ontario Government has extended a stay-at-home order and introduced enhanced enforcement measures.
Under these restrictions, regulated health professions, including Registered Massage Therapists, are still allowed to continue practicing. Unfortunately my office in GoodLife Fitness North York Sheppard and Consumers Club remains closed, but I am still available at these two locations:
North York Healthcare Associates
2255 Sheppard Avenue East, Suite 300
Booking site: https://nyha.janeapp.com/
Available days and time: Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 1pm
Fairview Physiotherapy and Rehab Centre
5 Fairview Mall Drive, Suite 250
Available days and time: Tuesdays, Fridays from 12pm to 6pm, Saturdays from 9am to 4pm
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 clinics. 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.
