Update: COVID-19 and Thrive

Mar 25, 2020

We hope that this message finds you, and your loved ones, healthy, well and navigating this new normal, whatever that looks like to you, with at least a sense of solidarity. We are truly all in this together. What a strange and uneasy moment in time to be a part of. Amazing that it has already been one week since we made the difficult, but necessary decision to temporarily close our doors. That decision, as you know, was made in the best interests of our team and our clients and in accordance with the guidelines from our professional colleges and the government recommendations that had rolled out at that time.

Now, here we are with new crucial government mandates and directives presented more recently in these last few days. The message is simple: STAY HOME, continue PHYSICAL DISTANCING. Although many services have been deemed “essential”, the wellness services we offer including Massage Therapy and Osteopathic care do not fall under this umbrella. For emergency essential chiropractic care, see information below .

This newest information unfortunately pushes back our estimated return date to at least APRIL 8, 2020. We will continue to keep you updated with any changes to this effect. Our closure includes the in-Studio classes held by Sue Abell (moveabell.com) Connect for online class options.

If you have wellness appointments booked up to this date, please assume they will be cancelled but do look for communication from your health care practitioners as they will connect with each of you individually to confirm that you are aware of the most recent changes and look at options for rescheduling and just to check in on you! Please take an opportunity to connect with us on our social media platforms including Instagram and Facebook. We are still here and we love sharing with you!

Registered Psychotherapy: Connect with your mental health practitioners to discuss options for virtual Registered Psychotherapy appointments. These are unprecedented times and it is normal to struggle with overwhelming and ever changing emotions. We are here to help you stay connected and to help you move through the uncertainty of the days ahead and the continued every day concerns you might be facing. Connect Here.

Clients requiring EMERGENCY/ACUTE or “ESSENTIAL” chiropractic care at the discretion of Dr. Clutton and subject to a full prior screening, may contact him directly at drclutton@thrivemassagewellness.com with any questions about what essential treatment is, or to request an appointment. Clients must meet the following criteria and NOT have any of the following:

  2. Feeling ill with any flu/cold/Covid-19 symptoms (Fever, Cough, Shortness of breath).
  3. You are over age 65.

  5. Have a compromised immune system from a medical condition or treatment (e.g. chemotherapy).
  6. Is or has been in contact with anyone meeting the above criteria in the last 14 days.

We will continue to share pertinent information regarding the latest professional college regulations and government mandates that directly effect the services that we provide and our ability to open our doors.

Until then, take good care of yourselves and loved ones, STAY HOME when possible and know that we support and are thinking of those of you who are on the frontlines helping us through this very difficult time. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at any time. We are incredibly grateful for your ongoing support.
