COVID-19 Policy

Dear Clients,

Infection control guidance from CDC reminds healthcare providers that COVID-19 is spread primarily through person to person contact. Infectious respiratory droplets, produced when someone with COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or speaks, can land on the eyes, mouth or nose of an uninfected person, or be inhaled by an uninfected person standing close by. Smaller droplets may hang in the air for a period of time, while heavier droplets fall to surfaces.

While information is still limited, the CDC indicates that these underlying conditions place people at higher risk for sever illness from COVID-19:

  • People 65 years or older

  • Chronic lung disease

  • Moderate to sever asthma

  • Heart conditions

  • Compromised or suppressed immunity

  • Sever obesity (body mass index of 40 or higher)

  • Diabetes

  • Chronic kidney disease

  • Liver disease

Unless otherwise directed by your primary healthcare provider, clients with higher risk of sever illness from COVID-19, all though is not required, should forgo massage while the virus is present in the community.

No matter the overall health of the client, massage practitioners must apply minimum infection prevention practices with strict attention to protect the client and themselves from the spread of infection and therefore our office will be implementing these changes:

  • No walk-ins, by Appointment sessions ONLY

  • All clients must bring their own face masks. No masks will be provided by the practitioner

  • If a client arrives with medical gloves, the practitioner will request that they remove these gloves before entry, as gloves may be contaminated with respiratory droplets

  • Upon notifying your practitioner of your arrival via text or call, clients will be asked to remain in their vehicle or outside until the practitioner comes out to provide them with a COVID-19 sign-in/informed consent sheet and a no-contact thermometer reading before escorting them inside prior to each session

  • Upon entering the premises, clients will be asked to wash their hands after which they will be escorted directly to the treatment room

  • Unless a person is a guardian, no other person will be allowed into the building. Waiting area is unavailable until farther notice

  • Both practitioner and the client must wear a face mask and/or a face shield during the session

  • The CDC suggests that COVID-19 infected respiratory droplets can be dispersed when people talk. For this reason, talking is limited to communication about pressure, warmth, and comfort during session

  • Intra-oral, nasal or face massages are prohibited at this time

  • Post session, client's payment and rebooking will be processed in the treatment room after the client had the opportunity to get dressed

We will ask all of our clients to notify us in the case if they have tested positive for COVID-19 within 2 weeks of the massage session as this will allow the practitioner to self-isolate until they can obtain testing and be cleared of infection. If you believe you need a COVID-19 testing, contact your primary healthcare provider for consultation and guidance. COVID-19 testing may also be available at your urgent care facility as well as select pharmacy locations.

Our office will be adding an automatic hand sanitizer dispenser for our client use. We will also be adding extra ventilation into the treatment room for post session ventilation as well as a treatment table and face cradle sanitation covers which will be disinfected between each client. All dirty linens will be bagged into a plastic bag and lid covered laundry bin for proper disposal. At the end of each day all floors and high-touch surfaces such as tables, door handles, payment systems, massage equipment will be cleaned and disinfected with medical grade disinfectants and a UV Ultraviolet lamp sterilizer.
