OPENING JULY 6, 2020

In Business, covid-19, Manchester, Massage, Uncategorized on June 29, 2020 at 6:39 PM

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.

I’m still here . . .

Body Positive Photo Session

In Art, art portraiture, body positive, Photography, Portrait, self care, Uncategorized on December 2, 2017 at 2:05 PM

I got to do a very inspiring photo-shoot recently. A woman contacted me about putting together a “Body Positive” session.  She’s given me permission to share the images from our time together – and here are just a few.

Over the past few years her body has changed a lot. She’s had a baby, experienced lots of other life challenges and her perspective on what is sexy and what she values in the world has shifted…along with clothing size, stretch marks, etc.

One goal of the photo shoot was to claim that who she is now is just as valuable, sexy and powerful as the person she was as a “size two”. We HIGHLIGHTED stretch marks because they are a proud sign that she grew the love of her life in her body. They are not something she felt ashamed of – and to witness this was beautiful.

It makes me sad when I photograph people who put themselves down throughout their entire session. I understand it – but it also makes me mad when I see a stunning soul standing before me, tearing themselves to pieces because they are not physically flawless.

To define ourselves by a false definition of beauty that is endlessly marketed to us by companies who want to make us feel bad about ourselves in order to sell their newest product is disheartening. And to have someone stand before me, with confidence in and love for themselves was really kick ass.

 

If you’re on a courageous journey of learning to love and accept yourself as is – documenting the moment with photographs may be a powerful elixir.  I’d love to do more empowerment sessions like this…maybe with you.
