COVID-19 Guidelines: Before, During and After Your Massage

Update for 8/2021: Masks are REQUIRED, regardless of vaccination status. I expect this to remain in effect until we are well past this current spike in cases. Please wear a PROPER FITTING mask that covers your nose and mouth securely. 

The only massage therapist, Amber, is fully vaccinated as of April 2021.

 

Before your appointment

 

1. Alert us if you are feeling ill, so we may cancel or reschedule your appointment. Please wait at least 10 days after symptoms of any cold, or illness that you suspect could of been COVID, cease before coming in for a massage. 

2. If this is your first visit, complete our new client Health Intake before your visit to reduce time in our lobby.

 

3.  If you develop any symptoms or find you've been in close contact with a COVID positive person, you can cancel your appointment with no fee or penalty. 

Time of your appointment

 

1. Text us when you arrive in the parking lot, this is allow us to reduce traffic in the lobby! (512) 387-7037 We'll let you know when we're ready to take you straight to the massage room. Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes early, we are not using our waiting room at this time.

2.  All clients are required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. While face down on the table you may wear your mask or use a pillowcase like a butterfly net to breathe into.

 

3.  As you enter the office, please use provided hand sanitizer on your hands. If you prefer, you can use the restroom to wash your hands.

   

After your appointment

1.  Please let us know if you develop COVID-19 symptoms after your massage, so that your therapist may quarantine  or notify other clients if necessary. 

2.  If I or another client tests positive for COVID-19, 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. They are disinfected per the cleanser's directions, typically by leaving the surface wet for 3-10 minutes. Point-of-sale machines, door knobs, bathroom fixtures, front desk and other possibly touched objects are disinfected after every client. Floors are disinfected every evening.

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. 

Our therapist is mindful in her personal life about avoiding high-risk situations for the safety of clients and herself. She takes her temperature every morning. Should she develop symptoms, she will immediately reschedule clients.
