Ouroboros Massage is committed to keeping clients healthy and happy during their healing journeys, and I wanted to share what I’m doing in response to any concerns my clients may have about the Coronavirus and my healing studio. Aside from normal healthcare profession protocols (hand washing, fresh sheets for each client, etc.), the following cleaning and sanitizing precautions have been instituted:
For the time being, I am suspending my White Glove Luxury Service and Chair Massage services. As I can only guarantee cleaning and sanitizing protocols within my home studio, I believe it is within my clients’ and my best interest not to travel to client locations so that we can all stay healthy and stop the potential spread of germs/coronavirus before it starts.
I am also suspending my late cancellation policy for the time being. It is not my desire to penalize clients who may have to cancel or reschedule appointments due to finding out they are ill. Please help me keep my space and all my clients as healthy as possible by rescheduling or canceling your appointment if you have any symptoms of illness, COVID-19 or otherwise.
I am committed to doing my part in keeping my clients as healthy as possible during this time, and I am continually honored to be your chosen and trusted massage and Myofascial Release therapist.
If you are worried about going out but would still like to support me and my small business, gift certificates are available! Purchase one for yourself or for others by calling (716) 396-0060 or emailing email@example.com. I can make up a PDF version and email it to you for you to use at a future date.
Please, stay as healthy as you can. Wash your hands, hydrate, and get plenty of rest. Practice social distancing if necessary. We can get through this together.
Many of you know that I fully approve of consenting “alternative” lifestyles, and that my space is one of acceptance, non-judgment, and healing. As of today, I am officially listed in the NCSF’s Kink and Poly Aware Professionals Directory. This is a “service offered by NCSF dedicated to providing the community with a listing of psychotherapeutic, medical, legal and other professionals who have stated that they are knowledgeable about and sensitive to diverse expressions of sexuality.”
NCSF Mission Statement
“The NCSF is committed to creating a political, legal and social environment in the US that advances equal rights for consenting adults who engage in alternative sexual and relationship expressions. The NCSF aims to advance the rights of, and advocate for consenting adults in the BDSM-Leather-Fetish, Swing, and Polyamory Communities. We pursue our vision through direct services, education, advocacy, and outreach, in conjunction with our partners, to directly benefit these communities.”
I believe, and thus my business also believes, that everyone has the right to live, love, and express themselves as they see fit, as long as all parties are consenting and of legal age. Consent is my #1 rule, after all. If you live an “alternative” lifestyle and have been wary about visiting a massage therapist or bodyworker because you don’t want to explain that those marks/scratches/bruises/etc. were from a fun and consensual evening, because you’re in the middle of transitioning, or because you want to gab about all your partners, you can rest easy knowing that I am Kink-, Poly-, and Alternative-Aware, and will not judge you.
Does this change anything about the services I offer or how I interact with my current and new clients? Not at all! This is simply a public proclamation that I am accepting of all walks of life, and that you can feel comfortable and safe coming to me for professional healing work.
Though this should go without saying: my services are still and always will be strictly professional and performed within the scope of practice for the health and medical field. Making the above announcement does not change that fact, and requesting “extra” services will get you banned and blocked. Thank you in advance for respecting me as both an individual and a healthcare professional.
Happy Holidays and Season's Greetings from Ouroboros Massage to you and yours! I hope that your winter season is filled with love and warmth, and that your New Year is full of health and happiness.
Here at Ouroboros Massage, I'm getting things ready for the holidays, including picking up those last minute gifts. Do you still have someone to shop for? Look no further! Massage makes a wonderful present, and what better way to show someone you love them than with a gift certificate from Ouroboros Massage! Multi-massage packages are also available, so you could treat multiple friends or family members as well as yourself by getting a massage package written out as gift certificates. Check out my Services page for pricing.
The website is coming along - almost finished, I dare say - and for the time being the URL will still have ".weebly" in it, at least until the New Year. I found that www.ouroborosmassage.com was taken already, but the website it redirected to was not associated with the name Ouroboros Massage, so on a whim I messaged the website owner and asked if should would be interested in selling the URL to me. She responded rather quickly, saying that she would give it to me! The transfer is happening after the holidays, so, fingers crossed, the website should be live without ".weebly" in it a few days after New Year's.
Happy Holidays, Season's Greetings, and have a Happy New Year!
