Support Community Care!
Supporting My Sliding Scale Massage Therapy and No and Low Cost Virtual Sessions:
If you have the desire and means to comfortably support the mutual aid model I follow/the funding of community care, here are two ways to do that:
To help me provide sliding scale massage therapy at Freed Bodyworks: you may do that by purchasing a Freed Bodyworks gift certificate for any amount, and please use my info for who it’s for (J Sheffield, firstname.lastname@example.org) and in the message, please put "sliding scale." I can then apply that money to cover the amounts I deduct from sliding scale appointments. If you know of any donors who might like to contribute to this, please do pass this along and/or connect us -- I would be so appreciative. Offering sliding scale is both the work I believe in, and also, hard to do through another business because of all the cuts that have to be taken.
To help me provide no and low cost virtual sessions: my Patreon is the best way to do that, and you can receive content for you too if you sign up at $10 or more a month!
More about my Patreon:
In order to make my sliding scale practice more sustainable, I launched this Patreon to both help fund my reparations/redistribution/mutual aid model, and to provide resources to a larger audience of patrons by offering visual and audio content including but not limited to:
somatic breathing and grounding exercises
stretching and strengthening exercises
self massage and myofascial release
top surgery prep and recovery
scar tissue release
If you give $10 or higher a month, email me anytime to suggest topics you’d like to see over the coming months! It can be however broad (for example: "I'd like a guided meditation focused on release.") to however specific (for example: "How do I stretch the area between my shoulder blade and spine?")
