If you had told us when Centre Ave. Massage & Spa temporarily closed on March 16th of 2020 that we would have to remain closed for 5 months, reopen in August at 50%, and still be grappling with COVID-19 one year and 527,000 plus lives later, we would not have believed you.
Well, thanks to all of you, our loving and ever-supportive friends, family and clients, we are still here. Our hearts go out to those who have lost loved ones or jobs or business this year.
Becky and I would like to thank our courageous massage therapy team, Jay Breen, Ashley Derr, Sarah Obuzor, Valerie Vogel, and Tina Booker who despite the increased personal risk and very difficult working conditions, continue to deliver impeccable service and always go above and beyond for our clients.
We are also very grateful for our truly dedicated desk staff and management team who went to work early in the pandemic, redesigning the spa to maximize safety and researching and creating the sanitization and safety protocols that we have used to keep our therapists and clients safe.
We would also like to send a very, very special thank you to all of you that helped out in various ways over the past year, whether it was donating to our Paypal fund to help support our staff, buying a few extra gift certificates while we were closed, or being one of the first to trust us with your safety and return for massage. We are humbled by your love and generosity.
With each Covid-19 vaccination, we grow more and more optimistic that we are seeing the beginning of the end of this long period of uncertainty and suffering. As the world starts to reopen and the healing begins, not only is it important that we remember the lives that were lost but it is also important for those of us who remain to do our best to pick up the pieces and continue to innovate, improve, overcome, and grow.
Thank-you for feeling safe in our hands,
Cindy McCormick and Rebecca Householder
At Centre Ave. Massage & Spa, we believe that a significant change toward healing begins with a person's awareness. Massage and other holistic therapies allow the client to experience balance, harmony and relief, giving them perspective and self knowledge to make a proactive change.
Our team of professionals is highly trained to address muscular imbalances and postural problems, chronic pain, stress management, inflexibility and the enhancement of athletic performance.
Through specialized massage techniques, strengthening and stretching sessions, we help our clients achieve their healthy lifetime goals, all in a relaxing and therapeutic setting.
Centre Ave Massage & Spa is located in the Shadyside area of Pittsburgh and is a locally- and woman-owned business.
