By its very nature, massage therapy and bodywork requires skin-to-skin contact and you should be familiar with the fact that infection control has always been a top priority for my practice. As we navigate life with COVID-19 present, additional requirements and modifications have been made to ensure everyone's protection.
The following are the new procedures that will be implemented in my practice:
- Prior to scheduling a session, please read and submit a COVID-19 Consent Form.
- When you arrive, text or call before coming in to ensure that the space is ready for you. Please minimize the number of personal items brought with you.
- A face mask is required to enter the building and will also be required during your session when you are face up. If you do not have a medical mask, one will be provided for the session.
- I will greet you at the door and use a no touch thermal thermometer screening to confirm that you do not have a fever.
- Be prepared to answer general questions about your potential exposure to COVID-19 in the 10 days prior to your session.
- A touch free hand sanitizer dispenser will be in the entryway and clients will be asked to disinfect their hands upon entry.
- Proceed directly to the treatment space where we will do our intake and assess your needs for the session.
- Your face mask is not required while face down on the table. A washcloth will be draped under the opening of the face cradle to contain the space into which clients exhale. Your face mask will need to be put back on prior to you turning face up.
New Cleaning Protocols after a client session to ensure safe space for next person:
- Sheets and towels will be placed in a sealed container outside of the treatment space to be washed and bleached at the end of each day.
- All hards surfaces (tables, door knobs, hooks, oil/cream containers) will be disinfected with cleaning spray.
- If the client used the restroom, that will also be sanitized between sessions.
Please contact me if you have any questions regarding these new procedures and protocols during this pandemic.
