MAY 2020 COVID-19 UPDATE

In Business, covid-19, Massage, Uncategorized on May 19, 2020 at 3:30 PM

Hello –

Hoping this note finds you healthy and happy. I know our stay at home orders have gone on much longer than any of us anticipated and that people are starting to feel a little restless.

Over the past few days many of you have reached out to ask when you can come back in for your next massage. The answer is – I still don’t know – but I will be back – and will send out notification when that is allowed to happen.

While I choose to voluntarily do what I thought was going to be a temporary two week shut down on March 15th – the governor then issued orders telling us to close down until further notice. Since then I have also received notification from the CT Department of Health stating that massage therapists are not allowed to practice at this time.

In this moment, the date of reopening is out of my hands.

Will things be different when we are allowed to conduct business again? Yes. All businesses must go through a self-certification process and uphold any health and safety measures that are issued by the state. The massage therapy profession has not been notified yet as to what this will mean for us, so I will update you when the time comes.

In the meantime I am still here for you and encourage you to reach out if you have any questions. I’ve posted two videos on social media – one with some reflexology tips to reduce anxiety – to help us stay in touch and focused on ways to do self-care at home.  Let me know if they help and I will endeavor to do more. You can find them on both Facebook and Instagram at Tania Palermo Studio on Main and on my website at taniapalermo.com

May you be healthy. May you be happy. May you be well. May you be filled with peace.

Take Mini Breaks

In community, Massage, self care, Uncategorized on March 24, 2020 at 10:10 AM
I’ve been talking with fellow small business owner friends about ways to offer our services online. A lot of people I know sell products, so they can keep doing that via Etsy or their websites. Yoga studios are recording their classes and sharing them on YouTube … I’ve been so grateful for this!
While I can’t give you a massage online … we CAN keep talking about self care. It is especially vital right now to take mini breaks from any stress you may be experiencing.

What’s an activity that you find restorative? I love the combination of spending time in nature with photography. It calms me right down. Look for the light. Focus on any hope you can find. Acknowledge all that IS working, all the good that IS showing up. Stay in the moment and know that RIGHT NOW you do have everything you need.
May you be well.

 

MAY YOU BE WELL

In Massage, self care, Uncategorized on March 13, 2020 at 1:57 PM

To the community of Massage Therapy clients at Tania Palermo Studio on Main:

During this time it continues to be valuable to find ways to reduce stress, calm your nervous system and boost the immune system – and regular therapeutic massage can help you achieve these goals.

I want to assure you that the health and sanitation practices we are all being asked to follow now, have been set in place in my office always, and will continue to be followed diligently. This includes things like washing and sanitizing sheets; blankets; towels; face cradle covers; etc.  Disinfecting surfaces you or I may touch like door handles; tables; stools, etc. I have always, and will continue, to wash my hands and use hand sanitizer both before and after your massage session – and ask that you do the same.

For your part:  please reschedule your session if you are feeling unwell. Come to your massage mindful of your own wellness and cleanliness, wash or sanitize your hands before and after our time together, refrain from touching your face, use a Kleenex if you need to cough or sneeze, etc., and drink more water after your massage to keep tissues well hydrated and functioning with ease.

Along with continuing to receive therapeutic massage, I recommend doing whatever is possible, within your means, to boost your immune system, lower your anxiety and keep you focused on wellness.

For me that means things like:

Walking outside – the fresh air lifts the spirit, movement is wonderful for the body and spending time in the woods or at the ocean actually reduces stress levels. You’ve heard me speak of Shinrin-Yoku before, which is the Japanese art of forest bathing. They actually use this as a form of preventative medicine and it is proven to reduce stress hormone production, lower heart rate and blood pressure, boost the immune system and plain old made you happy. At the very least it can’t hurt, is free to do and will make sure you feel less cooped up and isolated during this time when we are all being asked to stay home.

I’m also paying attention to:

How much sleep I get. Things like using lavender essential oil at night can help promote a more restful slumber. I’m drinking more water, practicing yoga, doing meditation to raise my vibration and keep me focused on health, and increasing the vitamins and mineral I’m taking. I tend to go for naturopathic, preventative measures first – which means I’ve been including more elderberry syrup, Brazil nuts, spirulina, zinc, vitamin c and other vitamins and minerals into my daily routine.  Do your own research on ways to support yourself and know that operating from a place of calm and ease is a way to be kind to your body and immune system as it supports you through this time.

May you be well. May you be at peace. May you be happy. May you be filled with loving kindness.

Tania

Changing Sleep Patterns

In Essential Oil, Massage, self care, Uncategorized on September 22, 2017 at 2:02 PM

Fall is here. With that comes shifting schedules and potentially interrupted sleep patterns. Kids have to change their nightly routines in order to get up for school on time and our natural rhythms get messed with as daylight grows shorter and the time clocks change.

An easy self-care tool to support your sleep during all this change is to use high quality, pure essential oils.

A popular oil for relaxation is Lavender. [ Don’t get Lavender, Spike – as that is stimulating]

Here are a few ways to incorporate lavender into a nightly, calming routine:

1. Use an aromatherapy diffuser. Add approximately 3-5 drops of pure essential oil per 100 ml of water. You can start the diffuser 30 minutes before bed time to get the scent in the room, and then let it run all night.

2. Make your own linen spray. Add about 20 drops of lavender essential oil to one ounce of distilled water in a spray bottle. Shake well – and spray before bed. Add or remove the amount of essential oil based on your ‘scent preference’.

3. Give yourself a light massage by incorporating the lavender essential oil into a carrier oil such as jojoba or sweet almond oil. Add 15 drops of essential oil per ounce of carrier oil for a 2.5% dilution and massage into your feet, temples and pulse points.

My personal favorite is the diffuser method. It not only lulls me into a deeper state of relaxation … it also makes the whole room smell great.

Let me know if you try any of these and what your experience is like.

Have fun!

P.S. – Massage is another great way to help you relax. You can book your next appointment online by going HERE.
