I hope you are all doing your best to stay sane during this challenging time. Maybe you discovered a new passion for baking sourdough bread, finished watching everything on Netflix, are able to put a t-shirt on while in a handstand, have planted a vegetable garden or perfected the perfect afternoon nap; it’s all great if it helps you feel good.
I’ve been finding comfort in running along the Great Highway, walking my sweet dog Hazel, jigsaw puzzling, zoom yoga classes and perfecting my whiskey sour. Thank heaven for my lemon tree.
As I’m sure you’re all aware, the shelter in place order has been extended until May 31st. I know many of you feel that massage is essential (I think so too!) but it is in our best interest to adhere to the social distancing protocol until we find a way to minimize the chance of spreading this super scary and sneaky virus. So, I’ll continue to stay closed until San Francisco gives businesses like mine the green light. And when that green light comes, I will be at a new location. After 12 years on Judah Street, Raise the Bar Fitness (RTB) closed the studio but they’re keeping the Taraval gym open. I’ll be moving my practice to 1655 Taraval and will follow the series of COVID-19 business practices, including sanitation protocols outlined by the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals in addition to any other rules set forth by the city’s public health department.
I feel so supported by this wonderful community of clients. If you are looking for other ways to support our wonderful neighborhood, be sure to check out #SunsetStrong’s guide to shopping locally. I’m not sure if they’re listed on #SunsetStrong but I do know Le Trio, the Vietnamese Cafe on the corner of Judah and 31st Ave. (also owned by the fantastic guys at RTB) is open for take out and delivery and they’ve got special menus available for family style meals.
I’ll reach out again once I have a firm date for re-opening. In the meantime, you can always check the website for other updates. I miss you all and hope you continue to exercise patience and kindness with yourselves and all those around you.
