Karen Small...Creating space for healing and change
Trees in fall foliage



My business has been closed since mid-March due to COVID-19. It will remain closed for the foreseeable future. Rhode Island allowed massage businesses to reopen in June, with precautions. I strongly question the wisdom of that decision and am unwilling to risk the safety of my clients in order to return to work. I am continuing to watch as we learn more about this virus in order to make an informed decision for reopening. At this time my primary concerns involve asymptomatic carriers of infection, potentially compromised systems and the impact of massage on them (blood clotting and organ damage are my biggest concerns), and my ability to create a safe environment in my office. Until I feel confident about these issues I won’t be reopening. I’d like to suggest that if you go elsewhere for massage that you question the provider as to their safety precautions. I can provide you with links to what the massage industry is advising. Please be very careful and don’t assume that the therapist or office is taking all necessary precautions. 


I am currently heavily booked, especially in the evenings and in the summer months (I do not take clients on the weekends). There is a list of excellent therapists on my Resources page. If you were referred to me, or require my specific training, please feel free to contact me. If I don't have an appointment available, I can add you to my waiting list. Thank you!

Take that first step onto the path towards improved wellness by regularly receiving bodywork. Adopt a healthy mindset of treating bodywork as a proactive step in your wellness plan, just like regularly eating healthy food, drinking enough water, and exercising. Setting up regularly scheduled appointments is a great way to stay on the wellness path and helps to overcome the busy schedule mindset we all run into that sidetracks our healthy lifestyle.

I hope that you can find all the information you need about my bodywork business here. If you still have questions, feel free to contact me.

I look forward to meeting you!.

Wellness is so much more than the absence of illness...
It is a path towards a healthy balance in mind, body and spirit.
Regularly receiving bodywork is a fundamental step along that path.
