What’s New

We’re Reopening!

We’re Reopening!

Woo hoo!  We are so excited to let all of you know that Vital Touch Wellness will be reopening our doors by mid-July! We know many of you can’t wait to get back on the table for some tension relief and actual physical contact. And we can’t wait either! We’ve missed you dearly over these last 3 and a half months. It’s tempting for us to jump right in with a full schedule just like before the shutdown. But we’re taking a deep breath and pausing so that we can ease back in as safely as possible. We’ve decided to start with a “soft” reopening. That means we’re keeping the official date under wraps for now so we can prioritize our current clients. If you had an existing appointment that was cancelled due to the shutdown, we will be calling you in the next few days to get you rescheduled first. After that, all other clients will be scheduled in the order that you contact us for an appointment. You will not be able to book online at this time, but you can call us at 484.341.8411 or email us through our Contact Page and we will get back to you. Once you’re scheduled, there will be some simple, general changes in how you show up for your visit. Your health and well-being, as well as that of our staff, is extremely important to us. We want to assure you that we have been working very hard to prepare for a safe reopening so that you can fully relax and get the most out of your massage. What We Ask Of You Our new transmission prevention protocols for clients include the following: When you arrive for your appointment, please wait in your car until your therapist tells you to enter the office Please have your mask on before you enter the building. If you don’t have a mask, tell your therapist and they will provide one for you. If you have concerns about wearing the mask while your face is in the face cradle, we have other PPE options available. Before your therapist treats you, they will go over a symptom checklist. If you have any symptoms that could indicate coronavirus, you will be asked to reschedule. If you have any signs of illness before your appointment, such as fever, cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, loss of your sense of taste or smell, nausea, or fatigue, please call to cancel your appointment. You will not be charged for cancelling. What We’re Doing Our new comprehensive prevention procedures for therapists include the following: We’re working at half capacity as much as possible to minimize contact between other clients and therapists. We’re scheduling an extra half hour between appointments to thoroughly clean and disinfect the treatment room, face cradle, and massage table, as well as all high-touch surfaces in the bathroom and waiting room. We’re wearing masks at all times and aprons that get disinfected between clients. Each room has been outfitted with a certified HEPA air filter, and when possible, windows will be open to increase ventilation. Even though some of these changes may feel inconvenient and awkward at first, know that taking such precautions does more than protect you and our therapists. We firmly believe that following simple safety measures prevent...

COVID-19 STUDIO UPDATE

COVID-19 STUDIO UPDATE

The health and well-being of our clients and staff is tremendously important to us. In our community efforts to flatten the curve of this unprecedented virus, we are closing our studio until further notice. We encourage you all to join us in practicing safe social distancing. The sooner we all get on board with this as a community, the faster we can get through this. Not being able to provide services in person isn’t stopping us from continuing our mission to inspire and empower you to take the very best care of yourself. We have just launched our first (free!) Guided Relaxation Video Series hosted by the talented members of our massage and somatic therapy staff and designed to relieve the heightened stress and tension that you may be feeling. Also, very soon we’ll be offering brand new online services like remote consultations and counseling. Taking time each day to consciously relax and rest is more important than ever. When your stress response is over activated, you feel anxious, your muscles get tense, and your connections with the people around you can become strained. An over stressed nervous system can lead to depletion and suppressed immunity. Actively toning your body’s relaxation response with deep breathing, stretching, meditating, etc., can calm anxiety and restore immunity. We know and appreciate how much our clients look to us to provide support and healing in a stressful world. We will continue to be there for you in any way that we can during this challenging time. As a small business in the service industry, we hope that our community understands our current needs as well. We are doing everything we can to provide some financial stability to our staff during this unstable time. While our Guided Relaxation Videos will remain free, your purchase of our future remote offerings will support our therapists who are independent contractors who may not be eligible for unemployment benefits. You can also support your favorite therapist directly by clicking here to access our “virtual tip jar.” After selecting the therapist you’d like to donate to, enter the amount you’d like to donate in the “quantity” box. We know this time has been challenging for everybody in different ways. We are holding the truth that the intent of this forced isolation is to protect our community as a whole, and as a community, supporting each other, we can get through it. We very much look forward to the day when we open our doors again! In the meantime we encourage you to do what you can to keep yourselves and your loved ones safe, healthy, and...

6th Annual 5-5 Holiday Drive to Benefit the DVCCC

6th Annual 5-5 Holiday Drive to Benefit the DVCCC

We’re very excited to be running our 6th Annual Holiday Drive for the Domestic Violence Center of Chester County.  For many of us, the holidays can be a time of joy and celebration.  But for victims of domestic violence, a helping hand can be a lifeline. For every gift certificate we sell between now and December 25th, Vital Touch Wellness will be donating 5 percent of sales and 5 minutes of massage to the Domestic Violence Center of Chester County (DVCCC).  Last year we raised over $800, six bins of much-needed supplies, and over 12 hours of massage for the hardworking staff of this amazing local organization. The work that the DVCCC does for our community is tremendously important.  According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in three women and one in four men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner. On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by a partner in the U.S. The physical and emotional effects of trauma can last a lifetime. Domestic victimization is correlated with higher rates of depression, suicide and chronic illness, and between 21 and 60 percent of victims of intimate partner violence lose their jobs due to reasons stemming from the abuse. For these reasons and more, this tragedy that happens behind closed doors has effects on the entire community. The DVCCC is doing the essential work of supporting victims of abuse and also proactively runs programs to educate Chester County residents about the symptoms and effects of partner abuse.  Their services include a 24-hour emergency hotline, adult counseling, legal services, children’s services, educational programming, housing, and connections to area resources.  All of these services are provided for free. In fact, the DVCCC is the only state-recognized agency in Chester County that provides free, comprehensive counseling and legal options to clients.  Local victims and their children receive the support and protection they need so that they can heal and become independent. “The DVCCC is an amazing organization,” says Vital Touch Wellness owner, Jen McLamb. For the last five years, Vital Touch Wellness has been giving chair massages to the staff and volunteers there.  Jen has been so moved by the work they do that she wanted to do more for the people that they serve.  “One thing that especially impresses me about the DVCCC is their dedication to outreach and education,” Jen explains. “Domestic violence and child abuse is something a lot of people don’t want to talk about.  But it’s happening much more than we realize, and that’s devastating. The more people learn about this problem, the more that can be done to stop it.” Increasing awareness, Jen says, is another big part of the 5-5 Holiday Drive. “Because another important fact I learned from the DVCCC is that the effects of domestic violence reach far beyond the home.  It impacts our schools, businesses and our whole community.” To help this amazing and essential local organization, we’re contributing 5 percent of all gift certificate sales to the DVCCC.   We’ll also be donating chair massage to their compassionate and hardworking staff, at 5 minutes for each gift certificate sold.  You can purchase a gift certificate by calling us at 484.341.8411 or buy them online. You can also contribute to the DVCCC directly...

Introducing Bryant A. McCoy, LMT

Introducing Bryant A. McCoy, LMT

We are absolutely delighted to announce the addition of our newest massage therapist, Bryant McCoy! And for a limited time, your first one-hour massage with Bryant is only $49! Bryant is a graduate of Cortiva Institute in King of Prussia.  He is a kind, compassionate, and positive person, and he is gifted in the art of listening to clients and developing a completely tailored massage treatment to meet their needs.   He blends deep tissue massage, myofascial release, stretching, and trigger point therapy, as well as relaxing Swedish techniques to create a customized experience. Bryant’s skills on the table go beyond technique; he possesses that sought-after quality of all excellent massage therapists:  his hands “see” where tension and pain is and “know” the optimal technique and pressure to address them.  This is a highly intuitive sense that usually cannot be learned, but is something a good therapist just has. Sometimes we call this having “good hands.”  Bryant has great hands! Off the table, Byrant’s positive energy and warm personality will put you at ease and make you feel welcomed and relaxed.  We are so excited to welcome him to our team!  To encourage you to try a massage with our newest therapist, we are offering an exclusive September Special: Your first massage with Bryant is only $49! (or ninety minutes for $84!) This special is for ALL clients, not just new clients. All massage therapists are different in their approach. If you are looking for an aggressive massage, or to feel “beat up” by your therapist, we don’t recommend Bryant. If you are looking for a deeply relaxing massage, or for a therapist who can press firmly and deeply to release tension and trigger points in a gentler, non-aggressive way, Bryant is your guy. Bryant’s hours are: Thursdays 5:45-8:00 p.m. Fridays 5:45-8:00 p.m. Saturdays 3:00-7:00 p.m. Call 484-341-8411 to book your first massage with Bryant today!   Or book your appointment online. Just select “Tailored Massage Therapy” and under instructors, select “Bryant...

Prenatal Massage Packages

Prenatal Massage Packages

The American Pregnancy Association recommends prenatal massage therapy as an emotional and physical health supplement proven to improve pregnancy outcome and maternal health.1At Vital Touch Wellness, we love moms-to-be!  Our licensed massage therapists at Vital Touch Wellness are nurturing, compassionate, and specially trained to work with pregnant women.  We ensure your comfort, safety and privacy as you take the very best care of you and your baby. Benefits of routine prenatal massage1 Hormone Regulation– Studies show massage significantly alters stress hormones during pregnancy, resulting in balanced mood levels and improved cardiovascular health, as well as fewer complications during birth and fewer instances of newborn complications, such as low birth weight. Reduction of Swelling– Massage significantly improves blood circulation and reduces the collection of fluids in swollen joints. Improves Sciatic Pain– The pressure of the uterus spreads tension to the muscles of the upper and lower leg, causing them to swell and put pressure on nearby nerves. Massage therapy addresses the inflamed nerves by releasing muscle tension in affected areas. Many women have experienced significant reduction in sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy through regular massage. More potential benefits Reduced back pain Reduced joint pain Improved circulation Reduced edema Reduced muscle tension and headaches Reduced stress and anxiety Improved oxygenation of all tissues Better sleep For optimal results, consider a pre– or postnatal massage therapy package. One hour prenatal massage for new clients Only $49 One hour prenatal massage Regularly $85 Loyalty clients (one visit/month) $75 MOM’s Month of Massage 4 one-hour prenatal massages; one a week for a month* $239 (reg. $340) Prenatal Six Pack 6 one-hour prenatal massages* $399 (reg. $510) *postnatal care included; see below Call today to talk to one of our qualified therapists! * All prenatal clients must be under the care of a physician.  Both massage packages may be purchased several times over during pregnancy and postnatal care if desired, not to exceed 6 months after due date.
