Welcome to West Seattle Massage – COVID-19 Closure

Well, here we are taking 2 weeks or more off for social distancing. I know it’s lonely at times and things are crazy during this pandemic. 

I want you all to know that you are in my thoughts and I wish I could be working, cause positive touch is so important in our lives. Please be aware that if you have seen me in the last month, and you have become ill, let me know! The idea is to reduce the spread.

 If you want to share what fun things you are doing while home, follow me on my Facebook page, www.facebook.com/mjmlmt or twitter @massagep101. I need new recipes, and I have dry goods that I have no idea what they are so i’ll be posting pics of those there to get ideas on what to do with it and how to cook it.

 I will be working on billing and sending out client invoices for those that have co-insurance, but I don’t expect anyone to pay until this all clears up and we are all back to work. I’m ok for now as I hope you all are.

 Here is some fun stuff to do:

1. Read a book that’s been hanging out or Reread a favorite one.
2. I’m watching “Bob’s Burgers” for comedy relief and just started watching Amy Poehler’s new “Duncanville”
3. For drama: Mayan MC https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wA_vFpFsZrI
4. Another one just because I love Kerry Washington, “Little Fires Everywhere”

Injury Treatment and Chronic Pain

No one likes to be injured.  Untreated injuries can turn into chronic pain.  Most of us in the Pacific Northwest like to be outdoors. With rain, snow and wind, we all tend to fall or slip and hurt ourselves while doing the things we love in our area of the world.

Studies have shown that even stubbing your toe can change your posture and eventually create back or hip pain.  Getting treatment when you have pain allows us to be more specific.   When seeing me, I look at the whole body and treat accordingly.  I can do Swedish massage to deep injury treatment depending on your pain and your time for self-care.  Craniosacral and Visceral are very light touch but can be very powerful in your treatment.
