UPDATE: As of midnight on March 20, all Texas massage establishments are closed until April 3 by executive order of Gov. Greg Abbott. The closure is intended to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
I pray you are all well and caring for both your physical bodies and most importantly your minds. None of us have experienced an event of this magnitude and are certainly affected in different ways.
I encourage you to look at this event as a blessing and take this time to RENEW. Here are some things you can do to pass the time: start a booklist with some positive and uplifting books. Make the time in your day to pray and/or meditate, journal, and just be.
If you have school age children, you are now conquering the roles of both caregiver and educator with limited resources at your disposal. Go for walks, on a hike, read books, play educational games, and use the many online resources to create your own curriculum to keep their educational journey going until this passes.
Under normal circumstances most of us find ourselves constantly on the go with little time to care for ourselves. If nothing else, this is causing us to come to grips with just how quickly our lives can change. If we didn't think about that before, we are certainly considering just how rapidly things can change now.
Here are the tips provided on how to avoid COVID-19:
How to Avoid COVID-19 Infection:
The best way to prevent infection is to take precautions to avoid exposure to this virus, which are similar to the precautions you take to avoid the flu. CDC always recommends these everyday actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:
Steps to prevent illness:
1. Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly! As you wash your hands practice lovingkindness (for 20 seconds minimum!): "May all beings be safe. May all beings be content. May all beings be healthy. May all beings live with ease." Inhale, exhale, repeat. Using hand sanitizer is the next best thing.
2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
3. For the time being avoid hugging, holding hands and shaking hands.
4. Everyone is going through this in their own way- be respectful and gentle with yourself and others. Be vigilant, but not fearful.
5. If you or anyone in your home have travelled outside of the US in the past 3 weeks or has had any symptoms (fever, chills, coughing, shortness of breath, etc.,) please cancel and reschedule your appointment at least 20 days after the last symptoms.
6. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
7. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Wash and disinfect your hands again.
8. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
9. Stay home when you are sick.

Now is a great time to look at your self-care habits! Listen to your body. Rest. Drink plenty of water. Nurture yourself with good food. Take deep breaths. Stay informed, but don't feed your fears.
Thank you for your patronage and each of you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God keep your spirits lifted in these trying times.
Wishing you health and peace,
Benefits of therapy: Improves posture and decreases pain, elongates the spine and increases circulation by bringing freshly oxygenated blood into the area being treated. Also serves to stretch shortened muscles and works to free bundled nerves that can aid in the relief of muscle spasms.
I ask you to approach therapy with an open mind because where the pain presents is oftentimes not the source of the pain.
I take a fascial release approach to therapy. I believe that in order to find lasting relief it is key to find the root of the problem. We will begin with a thorough postural assessment to determine the root of the muscle imbalance. During your initial visit we will spend at least 30 minutes conducting manual muscle testing (MMT) and formulating a treatment plan. The goal of our treatment plan is to help minimize your pain and to design a plan where we work together to achieve long-term effects.
