Whether you are looking to add to your overall wellness program or target a particular ailment, knowing the your options is the best way to start. You should always be in control of your wellness and have a solid understanding of your options for effect treatments which includes massage, bodywork and energy services.
Based on the current state of our world there are certain precautions I have taken to ensure safety for myself and my clients. First, I wear my mask to support the public health while I am traveling and near groups of people. This includes wearing a mask during all my sessions as well as having my clients wear a mask.
IN HOME/OFFICE PROTOCOL
Following the guidelines of my professional trade association American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) and the CDC, here are my protocols for the duration of the pandemic:
Upon arrival to all appointments (new and returning) I conduct a series of questions with the client to verify if any symptoms of the virus have been felt or contact with infected people has been made. This includes a temperature check of each client to rule out possible fever.
All clients wear masks during every session. If there is difficulty wearing a mask while lying face down, a pillow case can be used to fit onto the face cradle to serve as a modified mask.
Hand washing has always been my practice before and after client sessions. I ask my clients to do the same.
ALL linens that come in contact with clients are laundered separately and according to massage industry standards. Clean linens are stored away from general clothing and in a closed door cabinet. All used linens are isolated in a sealed bag post session.
All equipment is cleaned with 3% hydrogen peroxide (per CDC guidelines) to sanitize all touch surfaces between EACH client.
