I am temporarily closed for COVID-19 prevention.

Updated: March 26, 2020

I am closed until April 8.

Already, I am postponing my reopening until April 8th. Massage therapy services are not listed by the State of Maine as “essential,” which I respect completely. Therefore, I am mandated to be closed until April 8th.

These mandated business closures are in our best interest. The quicker we act to halt the spread of COVID-19, the quicker our lives can return to normal.

I hope you are all managing to take good care of yourselves while we wait this out. I’m personally grateful for all the sunshine lately, and I hope that each one of you has managed to get some fresh air in your daily routine.

I am closed until April 6.

I intended to reopen after my vacation last week, but we’ve all been watching medical science and public health practices change rapidly. For the health and safety of my clients, my family and my own self, I am closing for the next two weeks. At that time, I will assess the best course of action, whether to reopen or remain closed a bit longer.

If you are scheduled with me for a session between now and my projected reopening, I will contact you personally to cancel or reschedule. If your next massage is scheduled for April 6th or after, I will wait to contact you once I know if I am able to reopen. Of course, if you need to discuss your personal circumstances sooner, please do not hesitate to contact me.

In the meantime, let’s all do our part to support each other. Wash your hands. Keep an appropriate social distance. Stay home if you are feeling unwell. If we are patient and consistent, and if we remember that we are doing this for each other, we can flatten the curve.

I know that I have said to every one of you, at one time or another, that I have the best job in the world. I still feel that way, and I assure you that this closure is only temporary. I’m naturally disappointed, but I am 100% confident that it is the right thing to do. I don’t want any of you to ever expect any less of me.

Stay well out there. I hope to see you again soon,

Emily Bilodeau, LMT
