It breaks my heart to have to announce this, but Calliope Massage Studio will be temporarily closed for business starting today, 3/17/20.
Due to the growing COVID-19 crisis, the health and safety of my clients and community must come first.
This was one of the hardest decisions that I’ve ever had to make as a business owner. I realized that no one was going to make this decision for me, at least not in a timely manner. I often speak about wanting to elevate this profession- to hold massage therapists to higher standards of professionalism, education, and ethics. I’ve promised a safe, transparent, and inclusive space with approaches based on evidence and compassion. Helping protect the vulnerable in our communities, listening to the evidence, and being part of the solution to slow the spread of COVID-19 is why I made this decision.
I will re-evaluate the closure by the week, and I promise we will work together again soon. Keep an eye on my social media for updates and cute dogs and probably some bad puns: @calliopemassage on all platforms.
Oh and since I haven’t figured out a way to massage-by-text and the bills will continue to roll in whether I’m there or not, please consider buying a gift certificate for yourself or a loved one during this hiatus. It will give you something wonderful to look forward to!
See you soon, and keep safe out there.
Halley Moore, LMT, Owner
