Important Covid-19 Alert
My practice follows Practice Guidelines recommended by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB), along with infection control recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. I made these changes to help protect my clients and myself:
*I will communicate with you beforehand to obtain updates to your health information and ask you specifically about your potential exposure to COVID-19.
*When you arrive at the office. I will ask that you wait in your vehicle until I text you or call you to come in. This ensures that we don’t have too many people in the reception area at one time.
*I will greet you at the door and use a no touch thermal temperature screening to confirm that you don’t have a fever.
*I will ask you if you have developed any symptoms of illness since we spoke on the phone. If you feel ill on the day of your session, there is no penalty for cancelling your appointment. Massage is NOT advised if you have any symptoms of illness.
*Please wear a face mask upon entering the building, and during your massage. If you don’t have one, one will be provided for you.
*I will ask you to sign an informed consent form that states “ I understand that close contact with people increases the risk of infection from COVID 19. By signing this form, I acknowledge that I am aware of the risks involved and give consent to receive massage from the practitioner”
*There is a hand-hygiene station that I will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find hand sanitizer in the reception area and other places in the office you to use as needed.
I look forward to seeing you again and am happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps I take to keep you, and every client, safe in my practice.
