REVISION ON COVID PROCEDURES:
I just read the Governors guidelines for massage businesses.
Clients and practitioners are still required to wear masks during thier sessions and at all times.
So sorry I did not see that information before I posted my last post.
Hopefully things will change shortly.
So I will continue to maintain the same procedures as before: extra cleaning, masks, distancing.
Thank you ♥️
COVID Precautions Update!
In accordance with the CDC and Governor Northam, If you are fully vaccinated, you can take off your mask during your massage!
I do ask you to continue to wear your mask while entering the office and in public areas.
I am fully vaccinated as well!
Thank you for all your patience during this pandemic!

Upcoming in 2021:
Sometime this summer or fall I plan on offering Usui Reiki classes. My Reiki classes will be based on my Reiki master's teachings - Dr. Cynthia Bischoff with www.heartliving.com - she is a fabulous local teacher. I learned all levels of Reiki, as well as all my teacher training with her.
My classes will be small - 3-4 students and set up very similar to how Cynthia's were. I am excited to plan this program and get back to my Reiki roots!!
Additionally, Kirsten Addison, with www.themellowmassage.com - will be offering small/individual yoga classes.
We all are excited to start the new year together and to offer new teachings!

COVID Precautions Update:
I wish I could have predicted the future when I decided to shut down my office. Virginia Beach is getting record COVID cases.
I will still open next Monday, January 18, but I will have some additional precautions in place.
1. Masks must be worn at all times - you will be asked to leave if you take your mask off
2. Please wait to enter until you have received a text from me
3. I will be checking temperatures when you enter
4. Please do not come if you are sick. If you do, I will ask you to reschedule
Let's work together to make this as safe as possible. Hopefully we have just a little while longer before the vaccines are available to us.
I look forward to seeing everyone again!
Happy New Year! You will notice some changes when you come back to the office. We have changed the decor a bit and I have two new roommates!
If you need a massage and I can't get you on my schedule you should check one of them out! They are both great therapists!

Our bodies compensate for themselves every day. We take on stress that we don't even realize. Physical and mental health are connected. I like to mix styles of relaxation with focused deep tissue for a balanced therapeutic session.
Reopening Monday, January 18, 2021.
I have decided to do an extra two weeks of closure for any major surge of COVID cases after Christmas and New Year's Day.
I will reopen Monday January 18, 2021.
If you have an appointment the first two weeks of January and you are not on a recurring appointment - I will contact you to reschedule.
Again, thank you SO much for your patience. The vaccine is just around the corner and I am very hopeful this is the last time I will
have to shut down.
Let's hope 2021 brings happiness and peace to us all!
Thank you for patronage! Please have a happy and safe New Year's!
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Can't wait to see everyone in the New Year!
[12/03/20] I am overwhelmed with all my clients support - I am so thankful for all of you!!
Temporary closure announcement:
December 7 - January 3
With A heavy heart I have decided to close my office for five weeks to protect the health and safety of myself and my clients.
The closure will be from Monday, December 7 until Sunday, January 3.
I will reevaluate at the beginning of January and may need to extend it. This was a very tough decision to have to make over the holidays. But with the increase in Covid cases in the very probable additional increase in the coming weeks, I felt it was the best way to protect everyone.
I appreciate each of you and hope we can get through the holidays safe and healthy.
Thank you for your continued patronage and I wish everyone a happy holiday season.
If you have any questions or you need anything please contact me. ￼￼￼
All COVID procedures I enacted when I opened in June will continue indefinitely. I will still be limiting clients per day in able to throughly clean my office between each client.
Thank you all for your patronage, I appreciate each of you ♥️♥️♥️
COVID safety update:
The holidays are coming up and COVID cases are rising around the country.
I want to keep my clients as safe as possible.
I’m asking clients to cancel appointments if you are within 2 weeks of having done any of the following:
1. Traveled via plane
2. Spent significant time indoors with people not in your immediate family
Also I am asking that if you don’t feel well to please cancel your appointment. This was a policy before COVID but even more important now.
Thank you for understanding and I’m hopeful we can get through the fall safe and healthy!

Looking for something to help you relax? My awesome friend and yoga therapist is doing classes on Zoom this week. Check it out:
Thanks to all of you for showing interest in this new venture. These are some wild times and no less so in navigating a new way of virtually living. I am grateful for how technology has allowed us to stay connected in spite of the challenges. Thanks, also, for bearing with me while I’m (and I guess all of us!) on this learning curve.
The schedule is subject to change. For this coming week, I’m doing 5 classes M-F at 10:30 each day and you decide what to tune into. Attendance and your feedback will determine the course of future classes.
Here are class links: (for those of you who don’t have Zoom yet, I’ll be addressing that below)
Over the next week or so, I’ll also be posting these links on my website for easier access so keep checking back there (so you don’t have to wading through your inbox).
Please have yourself set up before the class with a few blankets and if you have a block, that would be helpful. Enter 5 minutes early to ensure everything is working right, you’ll automatically be on “mute,” so if you’d like to get my attention, please use the “chat" feature.
Monday 3/30 10:30 Yoga Therapy 40 minutes $10
Tuesday 3/31 10:30 Relaxation/Strengthening Nervous System 20 minutes $5
Wednesday 4/1 10:30 Relaxation/Strengthening Respiratory System 20 minutes $5
Thursday 4/2 10:30 Relaxation/Strengthening Nervous System 20 minutes $5

You can pay by Venmo ( April-Megginson)
Or Paypal (April Megginson or [email protected]) I’ll be working to link this on my website as well.
Please pay AFTER the class. There is always the possibility of the loss of connectivity and if that happens, it sometimes isn’t possible to get right back up and going.
Also-I encourage you to forward this to anyone who may be interested. This focus will be on calming our nervous system, releasing stress and strengthening the respiratory system. For those classes, you will be lying down comfortably so anyone can join that you think may benefit.
If you’re new to Zoom or just want to say hi, I’ll be doing a tutorial/test session on Sunday 3/29 at 2:00 pm-

Joy Harjo - 1951-
Remember the sky that you were born under,
know each of the star's stories.
Remember the moon, know who she is.
Remember the sun's birth at dawn, that is the
strongest point of time. Remember sundown
and the giving away to night.
Remember your birth, how your mother struggled
to give you form and breath. You are evidence of
her life, and her mother's, and hers.
Remember your father. He is your life, also.
Remember the earth whose skin you are:
red earth, black earth, yellow earth, white earth
brown earth, we are earth.
Remember the plants, trees, animal life who all have their
tribes, their families, their histories, too. Talk to them,
listen to them. They are alive poems.
Remember the wind. Remember her voice. She knows the
origin of this universe.
Remember you are all people and all people
Remember you are this universe and this
universe is you.
Remember all is in motion, is growing, is you.
Remember language comes from this.
Remember the dance language is, that life is.
