Massage in a time of COVID-19

The reality is there is no Safe.
There is only Safer.

Is Getting a Massage Safe?
The short answer: Nothing is entirely safe right now. All we can strive for is safer.
Massage Therapy is governed by the Department of Health. "There is no method to completely remove the risk of person-to-person spread of COVID-19 in a massage setting." Massage Therapy, along with other personal care, hands-on services - manicurists, pedicurists, hairstylists - are considered high risk.
Please review: 
prior to your appointment.
It is up to YOU to make the best informed decision about YOUR health. 

Following proper precautions make us safer! 

To maximize safety:
  • Review Policies & Procedures
  • Screening - 24-Hour Pre-Session Check-in/Update.
  • No-touch Temperature Check upon arrival. (100.4 F or 38 C would require rescheduling.)
  • Facemasks when mandated or as requested. (I will provide if you do not have.) (*Pillowcase cradle 'mask' option is available while face down.) 
  • Sanitize hands. (Alcohol-based hand sanitizer will be provided.)

Do No Harm

What You Can Expect From Me:
  • Screening and Safety Procedures.
  • Hand and respiratory hygiene. (Mask)
  • No-Touch Temperature Check - mine, as well as yours. (100.4 F or 38 C would require rescheduling.)
  • Ventilation for maximum air circulation. 
  • 2 Air Purifiers: Oransi HEPA Air Purifier and Ionic Breeze Germicidal Protection Silent Air Purifier.

  • Client Follow-up at one week, and then again at two weeks. If a risk of infection exposure reveals, you will be notified.
  • Massage/COVID-19 Safety Training, as well as AMTA CE's and mandates to keep educated, updated and informed.
