When I launched Labyrinth Integrated Movement & Bodywork in September of this year I knew there would be challenges my small business would face during these difficult times. I’m fortunate that I’ve had a community around me – family members, friends, the Centered Therapies community, and my wonderful clients to support my dreams becoming a reality. It’s solidified my belief that wellness is a community concern – it takes a village of people coming together and offering what they can to create an elevated quality of life for all. I’d like to play a part in being that kind of community member. For this reason, I’m launching a Wellness Assistance.

Covid-19 restrictions have been easing, businesses have been reopening, but the ripple effect of the closures have hit home at Centered Therapies. We are beyond grateful to be back to fully open but have to say goodbye to some amazing therapists. When massage therapy reopened in Iowa, Elisa Coffman with Room to Renew, decided to stay closed and monitor the regulations and constantly changing information on Covid-19. After waiting over a month, she reassessed and made a tough decision. At this time, Elisa Coffman (Room to Renew), will not be coming back to massage therapy. Elisa is a phenomenal massage therapist with 14 years of experience. This is a hard.
Many of you know that our massage therapy and infrared sauna services have been closed for nearly 2 months. We are excited to announce that it appears we will be able to fully open Monday, May 18. Here are some changes you will be seeing when you come back: We have replaced the soft reception seating with wooden chairs and benches to allow for improved cleaning. We have placed plexiglass around the reception desk. Our front desk coordinators and therapists will be wearing masks. We have opened online payments through FullSlate, so you can avoid checking out at the front desk. Just click the “Pay Now” button on your confirmation.
Once again, Iowa has extended the length of business closures. Massage, myofascial release, reflexology, and the infrared sauna are closed through April 30! We all miss our clients and our practices! Take care and hopefully this will be the last extension. If you want to support Centered Therapies and the therapists, you can purchase gift certificates online (CLICK HERE).

Once we return to our practices, rest assured that we will still be maintaining an exceptionally high standard of cleaning and disinfection. Our code as massage therapists is, “do no harm.” We all take this very seriously and will continue putting our client’s health first..
