STAFF & SHIFT CHANGES As many of you may already know, I have been on Maternity leave since January 2017. I want to thank you for your continued loyalty to JBRMT and giving our other therapists a chance to work with you in my absence. I have been so unbelievably fortunate to have Ayelet and Andrea on board at the clinic to help cover my shifts during my time off. It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that Andrea Carloni will be leaving us effective January 5th, 2018 to pursue an incredible opportunity working in Australia for a year. Ayelet and I will miss her being.
Effective March 15, 2016 we will be raising our rates to help manage our expenses so that we can continue to ensure the comfort, convenience, and safety of all of our clients. Clients who have previously booked with us prior to March 15th 2016 will continue to pay the old rate until July 1, 2016 at which point the new rates will come in to effect. If you are a regular user of massage therapy, you can purchase a package of six treatments for a reduced rate*. *Package conditions: Clients may cancel their packages for a full refund at any.
Ayelet and I are very excited to welcome our newest associate, Colette Slone, RMT. Our growth in this little private practice over the last six months has been exponential, however, we are each very committed to maintaining a small-practice feel so that each and every one of our clients feel like they are getting the most personalized treatments that best meet their individual needs. Colette is a graduate from Sutherland-Chan and in addition to injury prevention, Colette has experience in the areas of chronic pain, sports, and pregnancy. Each of the RMTs at Jennifer Bloch & Associates is dedicated to partnering with clients individually to ensure that the treatment provided.
February is ‘Heart Month’ and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the Heart & Stroke foundation and all those who have donated toward the research that may have given me one more day, one more milestone to celebrate with my niece, Rachel. My 5 year old niece Rachel has Tricuspid Atresia which basically means she is missing the Tricuspid Valve in her heart that helps blood from the heart get to the lungs. Her condition is very severe, and causes her to turn blue, lose her breath, and get very tired with the smallest amount of exertion. Watch Rachel in action and see for yourself how she pushes.
Congratulations to Manitoba RMTs who have joined four other Canadian provinces including Ontario who Regulate the Massage Therapy Profession. What does this mean for you, as a consumer?: First and foremost, regulation protects the public by implementing minimum standards, procedures, regulations, and a code of ethics for safe and effective treatment. It imposes disciplinary actions for misconduct and it is what differentiates a “Massage Therapist” from a “Masseuse”. Anyone can call themselves a “Masseuse” but only a Regulated Massage Therapist (RMT) can provide Massage Therapy legally and safely. The regulation of massage therapy improves the standards of education so that when you book an appointment with a Massage Therapist,.
Give the Gift of Health this holiday season with a JBRMT massage therapy session. The gift of a Massage Therapy treatment is a thoughtful way to: – Offer support to someone undergoing stress – Recognize the hard work of someone in your life (spouse, staff, sibling, friend) – Provide a resource for someone with chronic pain – Reward someone for working hard on their body (diet & exercise) – Reduce the aches and pains of someone who is pregnant – Should someone how their health and wellbeing matters to you This is the fist time we are offering gift certificates and there is a limited supply so don’t wait too.
For those of you who haven’t yet had the opportunity to meet Ayelet (‘I’ ‘yell’ ‘it’), I strongly recommend that you consider booking a treatment with her before her schedule fills up. Ayelet has been with JBRMT now for about two months so far and will be taking on more hours to accommodate the demand for her treatments. “Whether you are recovering from an injury, want relief from muscular tension, suffer from chronic pain or are looking to reduce stress, your experience while in my care is my priority. A vital part of my practice philosophy involves creating a safe space where clients are comfortable asking questions and feel empowered.
We are pleased to announce that Moda Effective October 1, 2014, Jennifer Bloch, RMT will have a new clinic space located at 5 Broadway Ave. in the Yonge & Eglinton neighbourhood just steps away from the subway. With this change comes new rates for clinic visits and for mobile visits. Please have a look at the section of our web site for more information.
Massage Therapy Becomes Regulated in New Brunswick! The “Act to Incorporate the College of Massage Therapists of New Brunswick” passed on December 13 bringing the regulation of the profession one step closer to a majority in Canada. Here are some of the the benefits to regulating the Massage Therapy Profession: For the profession: Massage is becoming more widely accepted in our country as part of the healthcare system. Provincial regulation helps raise the standards of the profession. The more provinces that become regulated, the more hands there are on the table to provide education to the public about the therapeutic effects of massage, and will enable a more widespread.
