Intuitive Bodywork Remains Temporarily Closed Due To COVID-19.
Updated Monday, November 9, 2020
If you have been following Intuitive Bodywork, you are aware the business planned to reopen when new COVID-19 cases in Pennsylvania averaged less than 500 per day for a couple of weeks. We came close! In mid-June daily new cases were in the 500-600 range. Since then, however, daily new cases have jigsawed but have mostly climbed. Now, we are seeing 2,000+ new cases per day with Monday, November reporting 2,743!
Given the current upward trend in positive COVID-19 case numbers, the decision for Intuitive Bodywork to remain temporarily closed is not a difficult one.
What to Expect Now...
In all probability, Intuitive Bodywork will remain closed through the remainder of 2020 and at least early January 2021. Of course, if there is an unexpected early downward trend in early positive cases and if that trend quickly leads to new positives to less than 500 per day for at least 14 days in a row, Intuitive Bodywork will reopen.
There is Some Encouraging News!
1. On November 9, Pfizer announced that its "coronavirus vaccine is more than 90 percent effective in first analysis"
According to The Washington Post "The early look at the ongoing trial provides a decisive initial glimpse of the real-world performance of one of the four coronavirus vaccines in the last stages of testing in the United States. It is the strongest signal yet that the unprecedented quest to develop a vaccine that could help bring the pandemic to an end might succeed, breaking every scientific speed record."
2. Intuitive Bodywork will reopen! The current nightmare will subside and life will begin to normalize. We will gather again without fear. Parties, concerts, churches, movie theaters, public events and more will thrive. In fact, evidence suggests that we have learned a few things about ourselves and our world during this difficult time. That leads me to believe that not only will good times return that they will, in fact, be better than ever!

Update From August 21, 2010
Massage therapy is an indoor activity, performed for an extended period of time where social distancing is impossible and the therapist is actually touching the client throughout the process. Combined with COVID-19's periodically evolving characteristics, our frequently changing knowledge of the virus, inconsistent advice from government agencies and factions who refuse to follow pandemic related health mandates, this presents a high-risk situation for clients and therapists alike.
A recent issue of Business Insider named massage therapy (along with cosmetology) as one of the 9 riskiest jobs to have in the middle of the pandemic, with a risk index of 62.1%. Similar recent articles on Yahoo News and other sources agree.
I have dedicated the past 30 years of my life to learning, teaching, promoting and practicing massage therapy & bodywork. I believe in the power of massage and touch. I can't wait to get back to work and see my wonderful clients. But with all my heart I believe it is not yet time to reopen.
When Will Intuitive Bodywork Reopen?
I am continuing to monitor new case statistics and pandemic trends on a daily basis. As always, the care and safety of Intuitive Bodywork clients and all people are my primary concern.
Intuitive Bodywork will reopen as soon as it is determined that the curve of new cases has flattened and it appears reasonably safe to offer massage therapy and bodywork services again. As a rule of thumb, I am looking to reopen when new COVID-19 cases in Pennsylvania are less than 500 per day for a couple of weeks. I hope that will be very soon.

I Have A Gift Certificate Or I Have Prepaid Massage Visits. Will My Certificates Expire?
No, All gift certificates and prepaid massage visits are extended in proportion to the amount of time Intuitive Bodywork is closed.
Thank you for your understanding & continued support during this unprecedented time. I look forward to reopening and seeing you soon!

Research conducted at the University of Miami School of Medicine shows that prenatal massage reduces stress hormones in the body, improves mood and sleep patterns, and reduces anxiety and back pain. Studies also show that women who receive regular massage during pregnancy have lower rates of premature birth and fewer obstetrical problems. Their babies have a lower rate of postnatal complications.
Postnatal massage gives you nurturing and emotional support to help you gain back your lost energy and also helps the body return to its condition before pregnancy. Postnatal massage can help you to feel like yourself again in a short time. Not only will your muscular aches and pains disappear more quickly, your calm mental state is restored.

ARTICLES BY ALAN JORDAN
THE POWER OF TOUCH
“I believe massage therapy is absolutely key in the healing process not only because it relieves stress, it is obviously foundational in the healing process any time and anywhere." Joan Borysenko, Ph.D
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
We need touch, but most importantly we need conscious touch, a moment when somebody is connecting with us skin to skin and is also aware that this is happening.
