Massage is designated as “Adjunct Health” services, so properly wearing a face mask is mandatory for both of us during the entirety of your massage & time in the building.
When you arrive:
- Please call from your car (or outside if you walked) so that I might ask you COVID screening questions.
- To safeguard the other occupants in the suite, the waiting room is off limits for use. You are the only one allowed during your appointment, please do not bring others with you.
- Please avoid bringing any unnecessary items with you to your appointment such as shopping bags.
- When removing any personnel items like watches, earrings or necklace, please put them in your pockets, bag or purse if possible.
- There’s a large plastic box under the chair to store your clothes and belongings during the session that is cleaned and sanitized after each client leaves.
All surfaces, touch points, and seating in the treatment room are cleaned & disinfected between each client.
As always, linens are changed after each client and the treatment table & face cushion are always sanitized after each client.
Instead of fabric covers on the bolsters and the face cradle, I’ve begun using disposable covers. I have also suspended the use of eye pillows and have switched out the upholstered chair for one easily cleaned.
I can wear gloves if you ask me to, but there’s good evidence that regular hand washing and sanitizing is far more effective at controlling the spread of Coronavirus than wearing and constantly changing gloves. As always, I wash my hands and forearms before and after I work on each client.
My priority is your health (of course!) and my goal with these protocols is to keep everyone safe and reduce any increased risk to all involved. Please let me know if you have any questions and if there is anything else I can do to make you feel as at ease as possible when coming in for your appointments.
