Yesterday’s challenge was brought by the power being out for the whole clinic day. Luckily the clinic stayed a toasty 18.5 degrees before the sun went down. During covid precautions, I can’t offer a warm blanket for each patient, but you can certainly bring one with you!
I’m happy to announce I am more prepared to work under such conditions! I now have a hot water bottle, a way to warm lotion and a way to raise the heat in the treatment room without electricity. 3 cheers for solutions and a strong hope that doesn’t happen again! Thankful to be better prepared for stormy situations.
Speaking of stormy situations, I am no longer offering 2 hour massages. At least until the covid cases drop back down to single digits on the island. It’s too risky to have prolonged contact at the moment. One hour massages are still available.Be kind, be safe and stay local! It may take a community, but we can do this!
As summer fades to fall, we are pleased to announce a new wider massage table to better support our patients! When we can operate from a place of stability instead of a place of protection, our whole game and playing field changes! Book an appointment with Functional Massage Therapy to learn how this may apply to you!
With school returning, we are reminded that it has been 14 years since Leslie Clisby became a RMT! May we all continue learning and growing! May you succeed at everything that grabs your focus!
5 years ago today, Functional Massage Therapy was established to serve the Comox Valley! Congratulations to everyone that has been part of its success! Each and everyday is a learning experience and I have nothing but gratitude going forward. Today also marks my 6 month anniversary sharing space with Dr. Andrew Kerr and Brittany at Dragonfly Community Acupuncture! Bless their hearts and space!
This past weekend I took another course with my favorite instructors, Heather Gittens and Natale Rao! Part 2 of visceral manipulation ~ included your small and large intestines, gall bladder and everything in between! Their encouragement, guidance, perspectives and wisdom was a gift to receive! I’m excited to see how this will help my patients decrease pain and improve their function!
Moving into the dark winter months, I continue to hold space for my patients Monday through Thursday. Things are a little busy around the clinic, so please book ahead where possible. Especially as we prepare for the snowy season, it’s going to be a good one! My mantra for this winter as we focus on taking care of ourselves is ~ Best Case Scenario. Lets see what we can accomplish!
