We have been carefully monitoring Governor Inslee’s stay-at-home orders, which have changed multiple times due to the unpredictable effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. We will return to providing high-quality therapeutic massage when these orders are rescinded. Currently, our estimate is a return-to-work on May 18th.
We have done extensive research, based on information that is currently available, to create a plan of care for our clients to create the safest experience possible. To this end, Ariel Hubbard has taken a prevention control course and will be disinfecting the treatment room and restroom with environmentally-friendly products in-between treatments.
We are going to need to implement new safety measures for our Massage Therapists and for our Clients to maximize safety. These measures will be in place temporarily, until people can safely interact again under normal circumstances.
What is new for clients:
Before you return for massage, you will read and sign our new intake form, which includes health questions about Covid-19.
Your temperature will be taken before you enter the building for treatment.
You and the Massage Therapist will be wearing a mask during treatment.
Treatments will be paid for electronically, and documented electronically as well. to avoid having paper and pens (potential fomites) in the office.
Change is uncomfortable, and we acknowledge that these changes could be hard, but we need to protect all of our clients and make sure they are safe. We do appreciate your cooperation.
Please stay in quarantine until the stay-at-home orders are rescinded!
One of my missions over the past 25 years is to empower and support Massage Therapists and Energy Healers to grow in their practice and business.

This is an amazing live video of me giving a Reiki treatment and how much it changes the auric field. If you have ever wanted to “see” energywork, this video at first shows different layers of the subject’s energy field (you will see the colors change), and then you will see the intense light as I come in and send Reiki. His field also lights up when he takes the Reiki into his field. For more info on energywork training and/or treatments, go to www.arielhubbard.com.
Sending you the wish that you can experience love today, whether it is self-love, or positive interaction with someone else! Happy Valentine’s Day! Take a moment to be grateful for yourself. Make a list of all the things you feel good about. Not just things you do, but who you are. Realize that you deserve to be loved just because you are, not just because of what you can do for others, or your status or appearance. Pay attention to how it makes you feel to contemplate this–good inside? Then enjoy the goodness you feel about your own understanding that you are worthy, and that you do love yourself!
