Narrowed it down to 2 locations from the dozens I've seen.  They all seem to have drawbacks.  I just really loved my space in Lee's Landing and Bill was the best landlord! very high standard to meet.


  I'll be signing a lease this week!!  Everything has to be setup before the State massage board comes to inspect and approve me to work.  If things go smooth, I'll be running again by April 1!! Fingers crossed!!


Thank you for your patience! ~ Rhonda

My sister Dawn, passed Sunday, February 25 at 2a.m.  She was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in liver pancreas and other organs on January 22, when I took her to emergency room.  She stayed in the hospital for 3 weeks and I stayed with her every minute I could.  She finally got to come home with hospice on February 13 and loved having all the family around her every day.  I was so grateful I got to be the one there, just her and me, to hold her hand while she fought and struggled for every last breath.  So finally after over 15 years, she's out of pain.  It was the hardest thing I've ever had to do and I have to admit, I'm not handling it too well. 

Dad (Alzheimer's) keeps demanding to go to the hospital to see her but I think it finally set in yesterday at a special viewing just for Mom and Dad.   On the way home he asked "did we leave one of our kids somewhere?" and "who's going to be home when we get there?"  Everytime we have to explain it, he grieves like the first time.  Last night, he went to Dawn's room and closed the door.  (He always likes all the doors open) So I think it's sinking in. 

Mom's doing ok, but the greif is wreaking havoc with her diabetes and she's showing signs of alzheimers too.  Her father died from the same cancer years ago, and she was the one in her family that was there to help him pass.  He had a drain so she didn't have to watch him drown in his own fluids.  I wish Dawn's passing would have been peaceful, but she was a fighter and the nurses said there was nothing else they could do.  The last 4 hours was the hardest fight of all and I'm glad I was there with her.

I've been looking at other office spaces but haven't found the right one yet.  I have a couple good prospects to look at this week still, so I'm hopeful.  I'll let you know as soon as I'm setup and running again!

Thank you for all your patience and support through this challenging year!

It’s with great disappointment that I have to announce that the new location didn't work out.  The space and people are all wonderful, but we were unable to muffle the chiropractor’s table directly above it.

So I’m searching for another location and will be settled as soon as possible.  If you’ve already scheduled, you’ll still get that promotion in my new location - aiming for March! 

Another personal challenge came up as I was moving.  Dawn, my sister, was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in her liver and pancreas.  It’s inoperable and she’s too sick for chemo, so she’s pursuing natural remedies.  She was finally stable enough to come home yesterday with hospice after over 3 weeks in the hospital.  She’ll still be able to get more blood transfusions and things that will help her quality of life goals.  It’s going to take about a week to get the nurses and routines setup. 

Again, I thank you for your patience and I’ll let you know as soon as I’m settled in a new office.
