COVID-19 Practices

My top priority is to keep each client and myself as safe as possible in my office.

 

Today we are facing new risks and I have increased my safety protocol to match our new challenges.  All my information is from the CDC, ISPA, and The Federation of State Massage Therapy Board (FSMTB).  

Please arrive wearing a mask. If you need a new one, there are some available.

Sanitation Practices
  • Masks are required for every session

  • 30-45 minutes between each appointment for optimal cleaning

  • Table and all other possible contact surfaces are cleaned with CDC approved medical cleaner, with non latex gloves

  • Doorknobs, pens, check out equipment sanitized after each use

  • Hand sanitizer available in multiple areas

  • All materials used are sanitized after each use

Exposure Protocol

• The massage therapy facility complies with contact tracing efforts, working with the Department of Health and other entities as needed.

• The massage practitioner who worked with the client will be tested for the virus 5 days after exposure. Then are required to go into self-quarantine for 14 days.

• All other clients of that massage practitioner who have had close contact with them in the meantime must be notified that they may have been exposed. (Public health statements recommend that they also go into self-quarantine for 14 days after their exposure, but that is not within the purview of the massage therapy facility.)

Know your Risks

It has been advised by the CDC that some may be more susceptible to getting the virus than others.  If you have any of the following, you may be considered high risk.

  • People 65 years or older

  • Chronic lung disease

  • Moderate to severe asthma

  • Heart conditions

  • Compromised or suppressed immunity

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

  • Diabetes

  • Chronic kidney disease

  • Liver disease
