COVID-19 & Monkeypox Guidelines:
Before, During and After Your Massage
Masks are optional in the office and treatment room. Amber, the only massage therapist, will continue to wear a mask during treatments.
Amber, is fully vaccinated and has had a booster shot.
Before your appointment
Please cancel or reschedule if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Unexplained pimples, blisters or rash that may itch or be painful
- Respiratory symptoms (ie. cough, sore throat, nasal congestion beyond normal)
- Fever or chills
- Fatigue and muscle aches
- Swollen lymph nodes
If you are feeling ill in any way, please let me know so we can reschedule your massage. I have clients that are receiving cancer treatment, have auto-immune issues, are of an older age, care for a loved one who is high-risk, and clients who are new parents. Please respect me, my other clients and your own health by letting me know prior to arriving for you massage if you do not feel well. Contrary to any folk wisdom - a massage will not get you better faster. Typically it makes one feel worse and also puts other people at risk.
Time of your appointment
Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes early, we are trying to reduce traffic in our waiting room while we check out previous clients.
After your appointment
1. Please let us know if you develop COVID-19 or Monkeypox symptoms in the 2 days after your massage, so that your therapist may quarantine or notify other clients if necessary. Research from the CDC shows that those with coronavirus may be contagious 2 days before symptoms appear and research regarding monkeypox spread is ongoing.
2. If I or another client tests positive for COVID-19 or monkeypox, we will immediately notify all clients that may be at risk.
Cleaning and Disinfection
All rooms are cleaned and disinfected after EVERY client. All surfaces, equipment and massage tools are cleaned with an EPA approved cleanser after every client. Point-of-sale machines, door knobs, bathroom fixtures, front desk and other possibly touched objects are disinfected after every client.
All linens, blankets and towels are washed after every use in hot water and bleach. They are folded and stored in a sanitized area.
The treatment room has HEPA air filter which is run on high between clients.
Should I develop symptoms, I will immediately reschedule clients until I test negative.
