Massage clients who don't show up - So you decided you didn't need to call to cancel or reschedule or just to let us know you weren't coming in for your appointment. I could have scheduled the client who called earlier today that I had to tell I was already booked today and actually paid my rent this month!
Friends or relatives who want free massages - I would love to work on that pulled muscle for free - that's exactly why I spent 1000 hours and $15,000 on Massage School!
Clients who will only come in for a massage if you are running a special or giving discounts that month - I would love to sell you 2 massages for the price of 1 because I'm still making $30 an hour, right? Oh, I forgot there is the rent this month, the cost of massage school (and that pesky student loan payment), the cost of Continuing Education that must have to keep my license, oh and that license the state says I have to have in order to actually work, my supplies (that massage cream that you love the smell of), a
In keeping with the most recent mandates by Governor Wolf, I will be cancelling all massage appointments and CE Classes through May 31 (minimum). As the virus progresses it may go longer based on where we are in the re-opening process as mandated by the state.
Extending this has been a very hard decision for me to make but one that I believe is the best interest of my clients and students. I you had a massage scheduled with me I will be contacting you personally to reschedule for sometime in June or July.
Please be advised that this is the best for the community at large in order to curb the spread of this virus.
Thank you for your support.
