Re: Fire incident at 207 I St (formerly Jak's Pak Doggy Daycare) on August 3rd

OFFICALLY REOPENED!

After a whirlwind week or so of scrambling, we've been taken in by my wonderful and talented colleague Andrea Sulusi, LMT at Elements of Sunshine.  This is temporary while we figure out where our new permanent home base will be.

 

All appointments are taking place at 301 Puyallup Ave, Suite C, Tacoma, WA 98421 until we find our new home. There is a parking lot behind the building and all spots labeled "C" are available to clients, just note the entrance is street level. It will be the same protocol - for security purposes, the door is locked during appointments and won't be unlocked until 5 minutes prior to your appointment time.  There are security cameras except treatment rooms and bathroom.  Our phone number remains the same at 253-778-6375 and feel free to text. You will hear from me directly if you currently already have an appointment with us, or if it was canceled.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE: WE no longer accept cash for payments.  We accept all major cards.  You may tip your therapist in cash.

 

I know it hasn't been easy during this time with the back and forth. It definitely hasn't been for us. We're just so thrilled to be back to massage and are so grateful to Andrea/Elements of Sunshine for stepping in to help us at such last minute and with such an open heart. I also encourage you to explore what Andrea has to offer as well!

 

And again. I don't know how many times I want to say this, but I'm so. so. grateful to our wonderful clients for the outpouring of support. Thank you so much for all the encouragement, check ins, prayers, all of it has carried us during this time.
