MY STORY! by Erika Hoff
Hello, massage therapists!
My name is Erika Hoff. I have been massaging since May of 2018. During the short amount of time in this industry, I have experienced many ups and downs. Similarly, as many of you, I was extremely concerned about the outcomes of shutting down my practice during the mandated quarantine. I hated having to contact each of my clients and explain why they would not be receiving their massages that month and the uncertainty of when I would be returning.
I am privileged to have extremely understanding and loyal clients. I was able to start back massaging the beginning of May and took all the precautions to ensure my clients remained safe and secure in the facility where I work. I also went back to performing in-home massages with extra caution. Not all my in-home clients where ready for my return due to their individual reasons, but most of them were ecstatic to see me.
As we progress through the stages of reopening, the need for continued, proper, sanitation practices and will become even greater. I strive to provide my clients with an environment they can trust and the quality service they remember.
Keep your head up, everyone!
We are AMTA!
