I would first like to apologize to the people that I had to reschedule this week. As those of you who follow me on Facebook have seen, I have been struggling with a miserable stomach bug. Wednesday, I felt like death warmed over. I had no idea if it was food-poisoning or Ebola. Thursday, I came in for a short time, but was still weak. Friday, (today) I was feeling great and was ready for a full day, when I got the call that my daughter was at the ER with extreme vomiting and diarrhea. After almost 6 hours a the hospital, we head home, only to have her boyfriend succumb to the same virus.
My point to this post is that somewhere along the way, I was exposed to this virus. Considering that I spend a good 12 hours a day at the office, and I was patient zero, it is highly likely I was exposed by a client. I say this, not to point blame, but to point out that I have had to miss out on about 18 appointments this week. That is the way that I make my living and support my family. I do not have sick leave. Additionally, the vast majority of my clients are of retirement age, and in various levels of health. It is imperative that I maintain a high level of health for the health of all of my clients. You may not believe that your little, lingering illness is a big deal, but chances are, I will be massaging between 4-6 people in one day, and potentially sharing that with all of them.
I take my business very seriously. It is my desire to run my business for the rest of my life. My business reputation is all I have, and I respect and protect that. If I ever have to call you to reschedule a massage appointment, please do not think that I take this lightly. I am not canceling because I went out drinking with friends, or want to sleep in, or just don't feel like it. If I have taken the effort to cancel an appointment, I do so to keep from infecting others, or because I am physically incapable of performing a massage. I understand the disappointment of last minute changes, but please do not abuse my receptionist because of your frustration. I will do all I can to make it up to you.
In summary, please stay home if you're sick, whether it is a sniffle, a cough, mild tummy issues, or lethargy. If you are not in good health (barring muscular injuries) please do not come in. There will be no penalty to cancel. Thank you for your consideration!
