After over 11 years of providing best in class services to our clients, we are sad to announce that Saratoga Body Shoppe will be closing our Colorado Springs operations at 21:00 on Friday, May 27, 2022.
This decision did not come easily. However, on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, the Colorado Springs City Council decided to pass an ordinance known as the "Massage Therapy Business License". This ordinance will require Massage Therapists to pay additional fees and obtain additional, and unnecessary, licenses each year. In addition to the financial burden, the ordinance would also allow government officials to perform what they called "inspections" at any time. One grave concern we therapists have on that matter is the extent of patient privacy that would be lost. Our concerns about client sessions being invaded were disregarded.
Many of us that have dedicated our adult lives to the profession of healing and Massage Therapy, along with a number of concerned citizens, spoke out against this action at more than one City Council meeting. Unfortunately, our voices, along with our concerns, were not heard and the ordinance was passed by a unanimous vote.
At this point, we can only hope that Mayor John Suthers does the right thing and vetos this ordinance.
But enough about the politics of the situation. We want to thank all of our clients over the past 11 years for allowing us the opportunity to serve you. We have been honored to be a part of your lives and wish you the best in health, always.
