Updates for 2022: Covid-19, Pricing, and Instagram

Happy New Year!

Crossing my fingers for a more easeful 2022, how about you?

This message is being sent to keep you updated on Covid policies and session pricing for 2022.

We’ve all experienced price increases across industries and I’ve noticed that many of my colleagues have upped their massage fees –  most to $90 an hour.

At this time I am choosing **NOT TO RAISE PRICES**. I don’t want a higher appointment rate to be a barrier to your wellness through massage.

Rather than raise prices, I am considering removing package discount pricing – however at this time you can still purchase two sessions at once to save 5%.

COVID policies: 

Masks are again required throughout your session – no matter your vaccination status. All last-minute cancellation fees will be waived for the time being.  I urge you to please reschedule your time with me if you feel unwell in any way or have been knowingly exposed to anyone who has tested positive for the virus.

I continue to keep 30 minutes between clients so that the massage room can be cleaned and sanitized thoroughly. An air filter is run throughout your session, my hands are washed, hand sanitizer is used, a mask is worn, etc.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

My main priority is to continue to support your heath and well being and keep us all safe.

I look forward to working with you soon!
Be well,
Tania

P.S. I occasionally post self care videos over on INSTAGRAM, along with some of my art. If there is something you’d like to learn about – maybe reflexology points for different aches and pains – message me and look for the video over there. You can find me @TANIAPALERMOSTUDIOONMAIN

Neck Massage

In CT, Indulge, Manchester, Massage, meditation, Refresh, self care, Uncategorized on October 20, 2021 at 2:37 PM

Did you know that the average head weighs around 11 pounds? That’s a lot to carry around and be supported by only 7 vertebrae on your neck. Regular therapeutic massage can help ease some of the tension and pain that is often held in the neck muscles . . . and it feels good. 🙂

Book your next session today.

OPENING JULY 6, 2020

Dear Massage Community,

This week marks the 16th week since Tania Palermo’s Studio on Main had to shut down temporarily. I’m happy to share that I will officially be up and running again on July 6, 2020.

Most of the changes that will occur in order to reopen will be behind the scenes. Like extra time allotted for disinfecting the massage room between clients. There are a few things that will effect you directly, however, and I encourage anyone with questions to please be in touch before your next appointment.

MASSAGE ROOM-2

Of note:

  • All clients must bring and wear a mask, covering both nose and mouth, during your entire visit.
  • Before your massage you will be asked to fill out an informed consent form and to update your health history in relation to any Covid-19 exposure or symptoms. Those forms can be found online HERE, or will be available in the office on the day of your visit.
  • There will be no waiting area available. Loved ones will have to drop you off if you do not drive yourself.
  • There will be a temperature check at the door.
  • Those feeling unwell or in high-risk groups with comorbidities are still being encouraged to stay home.
  • Your mask may not be removed – so we will not be doing work on the face in any of the covered areas
  • All extraneous items have been removed from the office. Please bring your own water if you’d like some.
  • I will wear gloves only if necessary
  • I am required to wear a mask AND face shield or goggles during your session – be prepared to laugh. ;-)

The online booking system is open and available for you to use. If you have questions please text: 860-306-0067 or email: tania@taniapalermo.com

I look forward to seeing you soon and exploring this new way of receiving bodywork together.

May you be well,
Tania

Black Live Matter Protest – Manchester,CT

In black lives matter, community, Manchester, personal, Photography, Uncategorized on June 6, 2020 at 5:33 PM

Some photos of the Black Lives Matter protest in Manchester, CT today.  It was a peaceful and beautiful event with inspiring speakers of all ages. I’ve been thinking about ways I can continue to use my voice to be an ally – and I know that art of any kind is a powerful medium to communicate through. If I can use photography to help give anyone a voice who wants to also be an ally to the black community, and create positive change – please reach out to me and we’ll figure out a way to stand together. I’ve been musing an idea for an art project on my own – but I’d like to hear what’s needed rather than just what I think might be a good idea.

Keeping Quiet

In CT, landscape, local artist, Manchester, personal, Photography, self care, Uncategorized on March 26, 2020 at 4:22 PM

Self-care for me today meant … walking in the woods, taking pictures, saying hello to strangers and  their playful puppies and … reading poetry. What did it look like for you?

 

                                                       

Keeping Quiet

by Pablo Neruda

“Now we will count to twelve
and we will all keep still
for once on the face of the earth,
let’s not speak in any language;
let’s stop for a second,
and not move our arms so much.

It would be an exotic moment
without rush, without engines;
we would all be together
in a sudden strangeness.

HP04©TANIAPALERMO2020

 

Fishermen in the cold sea
would not harm whales
and the man gathering salt
would not look at his hurt hands.

Those who prepare green wars,
wars with gas, wars with fire,
victories with no survivors,
would put on clean clothes
and walk about with their brothers
in the shade, doing nothing.

HP03©TANIAPALERMO2020

What I want should not be confused
with total inactivity.

Life is what it is about…

HP02©TANIAPALERMO2020

If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving,
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and of threatening ourselves with
death.

HP01©TANIAPALERMO2020

Now I’ll count up to twelve
and you keep quiet and I will go.”
