As of May 1, 2021

The little studio that could…AND DID!
We’re open and ready to support you!

Erik is seeing current clients only (no new clients) with an every other week Saturday schedule offering 60-minute sessions only.

Damien continues with his standard schedule offering a full range of treatment lengths:
30, 60, 75, 90 and 120-minutes.

Awny also continues her regular schedule with availability on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays (need a Tuesday? email Awny!) offering a range of Acupuncture and TCM treatments including Esoteric Acupuncture.

We’re in this together.

Be assured that your health and safety, as well as that of our studio and practitioners, is our top priority. We have sanitation and distancing measures already in place and will continue to monitor best practices as directed from local government as well as our professional trade organizations. We’ve even added UV light HEPA filters to treatment rooms. Things might look a little different but our dedication to you remains the same.

  • Every guest will provide written (email) consent to our waiver (acknowledging no symptoms, no contact with an infected person, etc.) PRIOR to entering the studio.
  • Absolutely no additional guests in the space other than the client or patient with a scheduled appointment. (unless medical necessity)
  • Guests will be guided by practitioners to make sure there is no interaction with other guests.
  • There will be no client lounge access or post-session tea service.
  • Guests will remove shoes and immediately proceed to the treatment room.
  • Post-session each guest will move directly to the entry bench to put shoes back on, confirm payment and exit the studio.
  • Your practitioner will contact you directly to verify the studio’s COVID-19 protocols.

It’s been a challenging time since the pandemic began in March 2020. Please continue to move your body, love yourself and be an agent of change in our world. So many other small businesses have been forced to close their doors and our hearts are heavy with them.
