Hi All!

We have been working really hard at trying to expand our space here at NEK9A. In January we were supposed to expand, but tenants in the other space wouldn't leave. Well they have finally left and we are able to move forward with construction now! One of the walls in the main training room is coming down to expand the space and we are installing new flooring as well (brand new custom turf in the majority of the area and a smaller area of rubber flooring). I was just informed by the construction company that construction will take place starting Monday Nov 27th. They are unsure how long it will take so for now we will be closed Monday Nov 27-Wednesday Nov 29 (with the exception of wellness services taking place in the wellness room). On Tuesday I will check in with construction and confirm for Thursday and Friday if we will be back open or remain closed.

- Massages on 11/27 will remain as they are in the wellness room!
- Laser appointments on 11/28 will remain as well
- Day school, group class, and private lesson clients will be receiving emails from their trainers within the next day to cancel/reschedule these services on those dates.

I apologize for any inconvenience and I thank you for your understanding during this time!

Monday October 30th
Canine Massage Appointments!

2-7PM: Lisa who is a certified in small animal massage will be at the building providing massage therapy appointments! They are $40 for 30 minutes.

Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues in the body to improve muscle and joint function by relieving tension, spasm, or other restrictions to proper motion. Massage can also be used for warm-up purposes, for relaxing or stimulating muscles in order to prevent injury, or for rehabilitation of a patient after an injury has occurred. Massage is also used to improve nerve stimulation and circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid. Massage therapy may minimize injuries in sport dogs and enhance the patient's recovery speed for dogs who have an acute injury. Dogs with decreased mobility from chronic injuries may benefit from massage therapy, which can improve their range of motion and decrease pain.

Monday September 18th
Canine Massage Appointments!

2-7PM: Lisa who is a certified in small animal massage will be at the building providing massage therapy appointments! They are $40 for 30 minutes.

Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues in the body to improve muscle and joint function by relieving tension, spasm, or other restrictions to proper motion. Massage can also be used for warm-up purposes, for relaxing or stimulating muscles in order to prevent injury, or for rehabilitation of a patient after an injury has occurred. Massage is also used to improve nerve stimulation and circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid. Massage therapy may minimize injuries in sport dogs and enhance the patient's recovery speed for dogs who have an acute injury. Dogs with decreased mobility from chronic injuries may benefit from massage therapy, which can improve their range of motion and decrease pain.
