First of all I'd like to reassure you that cleanliness and sanitization have always been a priority at Northern Arizona Massage Therapy. But we have added a few measures to keep you and your loved ones safe and healthy.
As for your part in all of this, we are asking that you wash or sanitize your hands as soon as you walk into the office. And if you should become aware of being exposed to or start showing symptoms of the virus that you cancel your massage immediately and we will waive any late cancelation fees.
I wish we could do massage virtually but we haven't developed the technology yet. We are dedicated to serving you and will stay open for the time being. When, if the first case of COVID-19 comes to Flagstaff we will reassess at that time and keep you posted. We encourage you to do what makes you comfortable. We are doing everything we can to keep you safe and healthy.
So here is the thought I'd like to offer: Where our attention goes, energy flows. " It has been confirmed through research that what we think and feel impacts our immune system via chemical messages from the brain. Therefore, stress, negative thinking styles, and certain emotional states can have a negative impact upon our immune system, creating an environment increasingly susceptible to disease." ( Mindful.org link to full article) So instead of worrying about this virus I would like to suggest you focus on health.
I would encourage you to continue your regular massages as long as you are healthy. Massage has been shown to boost our immune systems so its a good thing to keep doing.
