COVID-19 Updates & Policies
(Updated March 2022)
In light of COVID-19, I've prepared a thorough set of measures to help protect us all while ensuring that your body and mind can get the care they need! It is of utmost importance to me that I keep you, my clients, healthy and safe during our time together. With this in mind, please review my safety measures below. These have been created in strict adherence to state guidelines, and also include some of my own additional measures. As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have.
What to Expect:
If you have COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has, please refrain from booking at this time and get tested. If you have symptoms on the day before/of your appointment, please contact me to reschedule (late cancellation fee will be waived).
*If you are fully vaccinated (2 weeks have passed since your second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or single dose of Johnson & Johnson), you may take your mask off during your entire massage :) :) :)
*If you are not fully vaccinated, you will need to continue to keep your mask on during your session for the time being (except for when laying face-down).
*While I am fully vaccinated & boosted, I will continue to wear a mask with all clients in my studio for now.
To ensure you have the flexibility to make the best decisions for your health and wellbeing, Covid-related cancellations are an exception to my cancellation policy. If you are feeling unwell, have been exposed to someone with Covid-19, or do not feel comfortable coming in for your appointment, please contact me as soon as possible to cancel without charge. This will give me time to fill the appointment vacancy.
All sheets, blankets, pillow cases, towels, etc. will be changed over completely before each client, and washed every evening.
All frequently touched and close-contact surfaces (doorknobs, furniture, massage table, face cradle cushion, bottles, etc.) will be disinfected between every client, using Protex Ultra solution.
There is a HEPA/Activated Carbon air purifier on in the room at all times during the day, to provide air filtration at a rate of 5-6 full air exchanges per hour.
Hand sanitizer will be available in the massage room, as well as throughout the building in wall-mounted dispensers. There is also a sink in my room that is available for hand-washing. Use of sanitizer and/or handwashing is encouraged.
While great care has been taken to create a relaxing, safe environment within my massage studio, I also want to acknowledge that there is an inherently increased risk of virus transmission that comes with the close-contact nature of massage. In the event that I have any doubts regarding my own health or a client's health, I will cancel appointments as necessary and take steps to ensure everyone's well-being.
These guidelines will continue for the foreseeable future, and I'll update them as new information becomes available from the state and professional massage associations. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding during this time.
