bluebuddha_blogCOVID-19 Updates

As of June 13, 2020:

We are currently open but ONLY for Acupuncture services with Awny Rael, Licensed Acupuncturist.

Schedule with Awny.

Erik and Damien will resume Bodywork treatments as soon as the city of San Franciso (which has different opening dates than the state of California) allows. The city has a current target date of mid-August for massage therapy to resume. We’ll keep you posted here and on our Instagram and Facebook accounts. Erik and Damien will email clients to let them know the schedule is open.

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 effect 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.

It’s been a challenging few months since March. Please continue to move your body, love yourself and be an agent of change in our world.
