Away from January 10 to March 25

This is to wish you all a very Happy New Year and may this bring an end to the pandemic and a return to some degree of normalcy. I will be away at my second home for my annual sabbatical until March 25th and then back again to support your journey with massage therapy and shiatsu.

This latest twist of the highly contageous Omicron variant has necesitated new measures to help both you and me to remain healthy and safe. I take the rapid antigen test every morning.  Additionally, I have recently purchased a Hepa filter to help purify the air in my clinic room. For those unfamiliar with the term hepa:

HEPA is a type of pleated mechanical air filter. It is an acronym for "High Efficiency Particulate Air" (filter)  This type of air filter can theoretically remove at least 99.7% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and any airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns or more. Passenger aircraft are now using Hepa filters to keep a safer and better quality airflow.

I believe that all these precautions are a step in the right direction, in addition to the cleaning and santizing protocols required by the Ontario government.
