New Self Care At Home Videos

During the coronavirus outbreak, many of us are stuck at home. Often, we’re working at our dining room tables and feeling tense about life in general.

We’re launching a series of self care at home videos to help our community through this time.

Below is the first in the series. You can find all our videos on our YouTube channel. Take care!

Coronavirus Update

Dear Valued Clients, 

It is with a heavy heart that we are closing our doors temporarily upon the recommendation of the California Massage Therapy Council during this Covid-19 pandemic. As much as I wanted to remain a safe space and maintain some normalcy during this chaotic time for our clients, I feel that the wisest decision is to follow recommendations of our regulatory boards. 

In consideration of our members, we are offering 2 options during this closure. 

Option 1 – We are offering temporary holds on memberships to pause all charges. If you wish to put your membership on hold, please just notify us at We will put a 3 month hold on your account and it will automatically start back up when you are able to come back in. 

Option 2 –   If you have it in your budget and are able, we are asking that you maintain your memberships to help us sustain during this time. All charges incurred during this closure will not expire and we will allow you to turn them into gift cards at a later date if you wish.     

I hope all of you are able to utilize this time to dive inward and recharge. I do think there is some benefit for all of us in this forced quieted time. I’ll be in communication often to keep you all apprised of what we are doing and I’m always available to address your concerns. 

Be safe, Be well, and we’ll be in touch.
Sincerely, Gina 
Owner at Loosen Up Bodywork

There are many contributing factors to preferred sleeping position, pillows, and mattresses; previous injuries, room orientation, or sleeping companions. How we sleep is a personal topic and effective tips and tricks vary for each person.
