Safety Policies and Protocols
These policies and protocols are in addition to standard hygiene and sanitation practices that have always been in place. Detailed standard cleaning protocols and procedures are available upon request.
On the day of your treatment, please refrain from visiting public spaces or meeting with those outside your immediate family before coming to your appointment.
If you are feeling any of these symptoms prior to your appointment, please call to reschedule:
A new or worsening cough
Shortness of breath
If you've been in close contact with anyone with these symptoms or anyone who has been diagnosed with Covid-19 in the last 14 days
Try to use the bathroom at home before or after your appointment. This will help lesson the amount of surfaces that clients will come in contact with during their session. If you do need to use the restroom, there is a private bathroom on site.
Client is to wait in their car/outside until time of your appointment. If client arrives excessively early, they may be asked to wait outside while therapist finishes their cleaning and sanitizing procedures.
Please do not bring any guests. Only the client will be allowed in the business space, all guests will be asked to wait outside.
Do not bring anything unnecessary into the session. Please refrain from bringing anything other than your keys and form of payment into the business space.
Client's temperature will be read with a touchless infrared thermometer prior to the session. If the temperature is above 100.3F the appointment will be cancelled and rescheduled.
A face mask is required by both client and therapist. A mask must be worn while in the business space including during the massage. Therapist will wear a face shield in addition to a mask while providing face up bodywork services. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided. Medical exemptions can be made, please contact me to discuss.
Maintain 6 feet of physical distance whenever possible.
Client will be asked to wash/sanitize their hands prior to start of session.
Water and other drinks will not be offered at this time. Please have a water bottle in your car or otherwise waiting for you for after your session.
Therapist will wear a clean medical smock and for each client and change them between sessions. Along with changing any clothing that comes in contact with the client.
Gloves will be worn by therapist at client's request.
Mat based massage will be suspended. Until more information is gathered, I do not feel I can safely offer mat based bodywork.
Cash will not be accepted at this time. In an effort to keep the check-out process as quick and contact-less as possible, I'm offering several cash-less options for payment. Please see my FAQ page (here) for current payment options.
Extended time has been added between sessions to ensure thorough cleaning and disinfecting of the practice space. This includes (but is not limited to) sanitizing all hard surfaces, airing out the space, and using UV light to sanitize any tools used. Detailed Covid-19 cleaning protocols and procedures are available upon request.
A HEPA air purifier will be used while in session. They have been shown to effectively catch particles the size of the Covid-19 virus and are beneficial when used during prolonged exposure in a healthcare setting.
