Changes to Session Procedures
While COVID-19 is present in the community, these changes will be in effect for the safety of our staff and customers.
Friends and family of the client are not allowed to wait in the reception area while the client receives a massage, unless they are that client's legal guardian.
Both the practitioner and client must wear a mask during the session. The client must also wear a face mask from the time they enter to the time they leave the facility.
The CDC suggests that COVID-19 infected respiratory droplets can be dispersed when people talk. For this reason, talking is limited to communication about pressure, warmth, and comfort while in the session room.
Intra-oral or nasal massage is prohibited at this time because it increases the risk of COVID-19 exposure.
Because a face mask is worn for the duration of the massage, safe face massage is not possible and therefore prohibited at this time.
Practitioners should disinfect their hands directly after handling client payment materials such as credit cards, cash, and receipts as these surfaces may be contaminated.
We request that the clients sanitize their hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer directly before they leave the session room, and also before they pass through common areas of the facility.
Massage therapy is one way on the path to better health. It helps ease the effects of life’s stresses, be it physical, mental or spiritual. We believe the whole person benefits from massage therapy.
Each Therapist has their own style of practice and each client is unique as well. We customize your massage to your needs, based on your health history and our review with you.
