Indoor massage and bodywork allowed with all protocols necessary for extra precautions as stated in my earlier posts. Bodywork is still as powerful as ever - allowing the release of the soma, mental, and emotional stress. I look forward to bringing you better health and happy to talk more if you want greater explanation of how bodywork is safely provided.
Sending love and healing always!
Not receiving the benefits of massage can be detrimental to our health and wellness. Many medical professionals suggest massage for physical and emotional benefits.
ABMP communicated with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) on August 28, 2020, and verified that medical massage therapy is now allowed to be performed indoors, regardless of which county you are in. The CDPH stated:
“Medical massage (massage done based on a referral from a
doctor or chiropractor) is permitted indoors at this time because
it is considered an essential sector under healthcare and essential
activities are able to continue operating.
Yesterday Governor Newsom closed INDOOR OPERATIONS for personal care services including massage. I have already been doing the majority of my massages outdoors so this will not be a difficult adjustment.
I am slowly transitioning to being fully reopened for massage this upcoming weekend. I look forward to scheduling everyone. I am doing less appointments daily and having larger gaps of times between clients to consider safety. I look forward to bringing healing and transformation into your lives again!
I will operate based on the guidelines established by state and local health regulators, federal guidelines, and the best practices now being shared throughout the massage therapy industry. Some thoughts on safety considerations are in another blog post. Also, I am happy to communicate one on on, listen to your concerns, and am open to add extra precautions at your request.
Though there is no 100% way to eliminate all risks of COVID-19 transmission, I am a commitment to caution and diligence with your help so we can maintain the integrity of the healing space in the face of COVID-19 concerns.
I invite you to join me in the commitment to following the CDC guidelines in being vigilant of symptoms (fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficult breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea) and finding a LA County COVID-19 testing location if you come into contact with anyone who tests positive.
There is no scientifically proven efficacy of eliminating possibility of COVID-19 transmission with use of cloth face coverings. Therefore, please cancel if you are displaying symptoms. Face coverings do not take the place of body informed discernment. They are an extra precaution.

When Los Angeles County reopens, I look forward to seeing you and bringing healing and transformation into your life again.
