Daydreams Massage Therapy for Women is temporarily closed until at least August because of lingering concerns over Covid-19 & the inability to social distance during a massage session, so the online booking option has been temporarily been turned off. Thank you for understanding & I look forward to seeing you when it's safe & healthy for both you & I.
Welcome to Summer!
Long time, no see, Daydreamers...I miss you! Last month I said I'd reevaluate reopening in July. Well, that the time is here, and in the interest of safety, I won't
opening my doors up yet. I know...it's a bummer! Here's the thing: I continue to monitor Indiana's Covid-19 cases daily, as well as nationwide, and many states are seeing spikes in coronavirus
patients. I can't, in good conscience, put you, my other clients, myself or my family at risk by doing hands-on treatments. There's just no way to socially-distance during a massage
As a small biz owner, I've been concerned about things like:
"What if my clients leave me to go to a chain massage company that's decided to reopen?"
"How am I going to continue to pay for rent on a studio that I haven't been able to use since March?"
"Will my clients come back as soon as I am able to reopen safely?"
My first month of quarantine I was down in the dumps, but since then I've tried to pick myself up, dust myself off, and start all over again. While I've had this unexpected time at home, I've been taking an avalanche of online health & wellness classes. (Is "education addiction" a thing? If so, I've got learning fever right now, haha!)
Soooo I can now proudly call myself Jill Natalie Harding, Massage Diva (CMT) & Certified Yoga Instructor...whoo hoo! The courses I've earned certificates in over the past few months, have been focused on trauma-informed wellness. In fact, I'm currently the only Yomassage Therapist in Indiana who's certified in Yomassage, Energetic Yomassage, & Trauma-Informed Bodywork. I've also completed courses in Yoga Nidra (The Meditation of Sleep) & Mindful Touch at Home. Now I'm taking online courses on Yoga for Youth & Social-Emotional Learning Mindfulness Therapy. We've all experienced an emotional upheaval with the big challenges 2020 has thrown at us, so these classes will guide me in how to incorporate a mental health component into mind, body & spirit wellness.
What does all this mean for you, dear Daydreamers? I know you're way overdue for your regular bodywork sessions, so I'm offering two virtual options to tide you over until I'm comfortable seeing clients again:
1) Mindful Touch at Home provides the resources & knowledge needed to intentionally & mindfully incorporate Mindful Touch into your everyday wellness routine. You'll learn from Dr. Tiffany Ryan about the importance of safe, healthy touch & its impact on our mental, physical, & emotional wellbeing.
This course covers social distancing & its challenges, impacts of touch deprivation, benefits of safe touch & its ability to relieve stress & anxiety, communication & consent around touch, and offer suggestions for the type of touch to give, where, when & how to give it.
At only $69.99 it's about the cost of just one studio session with me. I encourage you to bond with your close friends, family, or roommates during this social distancing era using Mindful Touch at Home. Click the link below to watch a video of Mindful Touch in action or to order your course:
2) I'm going to start offering virtual slow yoga, meditation, & self-care classes online! As they say, there ain't nothin' like the real thing, but my goal is for this to be the next best thing to actually coming to my studio in person! So keep an eye here on my website & my social media. I'll be posting details about online classes on these spots:
Until We Meet Again...Peace, Relaxation & Hope!
