To All My Valued Clients,
As many of you know, I was on a hiatus from the office for a duration of 5 weeks. I was utilizing this time to study for the MCAT examination for entry into medical school. The office was to open again as of Monday, March 16. I have been following news and updates on the coronavirus pandemic closely to determine the best course of action regarding my clients and their appointments.
Due to the current state of this national emergency, I regret to inform you that I will be closing my doors for the foreseeable future. Although the state of Connecticut is not yet requiring massage therapy practices to shut down, most LMTs are taking preventative measures to flatten the curve and stop the spread of this virus to potentially vulnerable populations.
Due to the hands-on nature of massage therapy, sometimes precautions are not enough. I would hate to unknowingly spread the virus to any of my clients, in the event that they themselves become carriers and spread it further. We need to stay vigilant during this time, support each other, and through our efforts – hopefully things will return to normal as soon as possible.
If you would like to support me during this difficult time, I am still offering online gift certificates here: https://squareup.com/gift/3DMT495GZ5AX3/order. You can purchase one for yourself or for a loved one, and you will be able to use them once we are back in business.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to send me an email or give me a call.
Please, let’s stay safe, follow protocol, and get through this together.
All the best,
David Bray, B.S., L.M.T.

Works on the body's energy system, also known as chakras in Sanskrit. The word chakra translates to "wheel" or "vortex." The chakras are located along the centerline of the body. Similar to the Eastern theory of Acupressure, if our chakras are imbalanced, pathologies and emotional states may arise.
