COVID 19 update.
I have decided to begin offering massages again starting Wednesday, May 27th and I felt it prudent to inform you all about the precautions I will be taking in regards to the COVID 19 virus.
I will be wearing an N95 mask while I’m working.
My clients must wear a mask of some sort unless they are laying face down (they can still wear one then which I do recommend but I won’t be requiring it at that point). They can provide their own or I will have some fabric ones that I will be cleaning, sanitizing, and keeping in individual closed bags.
I will continue to have 30 minutes between clients in order to make sure everything is clean between appointments.
I will be changing outfits between clients.
I will have my clients text me when they arrive and I will come to them as soon as everything is cleaned to my standards and there is little to no chance of encountering other people.
I’m currently looking into UV air purifiers which I will hopefully have within the next two weeks as they are sold out most places.
I also want to inform you, if you are unaware, that my husband does work in the Emergency Room. He wears PPE but there is still a chance he could get it and give it to me. It is important to me that y'all are making an informed decision before scheduling an appointment.
I am happy to answer any questions you may have and I’m very willing to take suggestions on how to be even more safe. I’ll have the same hours as before, 11-8, Wednesday and Friday in St. Pete, Thursday and Saturday in Tampa.
You can also still schedule online at www.purdinmassage.com
Thank you all for your patience and I hope you’ve been able to take care of yourselves during these last few months.

A Natural Way to Heal
Purdin Massage: Your Path to Wellness
Heal your body, naturally. I’m an experienced Massage Therapy Practitioner and a firm believer in a holistic approach to healing. The human body is made up of the mind, body, and spirit. All three must be in working order, so that a free flow of energy is achieved. Through my practice, I work hard to release this energy and promote well-being.
Who I Am and What I Do
I have been a massage therapist since 2010. Since then I've accrued knowledge of various body work techniques that I incorporate into my services.
Migraine and TMJD relief- I've developed my own protocols for helping my clients with these issues including intra-oral massage and addressing neck muscles that are often overlooked.
Myofascial unwinding- a technique that releases bound up connective tissue, or fascia, using gentle movements and rocking motions.
Polarity therapy- an energy work technique that balances the magnetic field of the body and promotes deep relaxation.
Reflexology- a technique that focuses on specific points on the feet that correlate to places on the rest of the body.
Residual Strain Therapy- while similar to Myofascial unwinding, this modality uses more stagnant pressure to unbind your fascia.
Deep tissue- many clients ask for deeper pressure which is done including various techniques.
Assisted stretching- perfect for after a sporting event. Your muscles are able to get a deeper stretch with a trained professional.
When I'm not making you feel better, I'm often found on a boat fishing or spending time with my husband traveling around the world.
