COVID-19 and massage what you need to know

The state of Ohio and the CDC recommend that virtually all persons 12 years of age and older receive one of the 3 approved Covid-19 Vaccines. I was fully vaccinated as of March 2021. I will continue to follow all CDC guidelines, however I have made the decision that I will require all clients to be vaccinated effective June 1st 2021. If you choose not to be vaccinated that is your decision, however it is my decision to no longer see you for massage therapy. 

 

You will notice some changes when you book your appointment and when you arrive at my studio.  

  • You may request an appointment online, however the appointment will not be confirmed until you receive a confirmation that your appointment day and time have been accepted.  This allows me to manage the schedule to limit the number of clients per day as well as guarantee sufficient time between clients to completely clean and sanitize. 

  • If you arrive early for your appointment please text me and check that I am ready for you before entering the building so we can minimize the amount of time clients spend in the common lobby area. If possible use the restroom before arriving at my office.

  • I will be wearing a mask at all times.

  • You will be asked to wear a mask at all times while in the building with the exception of the time you will spend on the massage table.

  • Hand sanitizer will be located throughout the building please use it before touching door handles or any other surfaces.

 

In order to minimize risk I will be following a strict cleaning regimen that meets or exceeds the requirements of the Medical Board.  Procedures will include the following:

  • Every contact surface including door knobs, bathroom fixtures and light switches will be sanitized between each client.

  • In addition to fresh sheets and face rest coverings I will be replacing the fleece table and headrest coverings and sanitizing the table and headrest between each client.  

  • All massage oil will be dispensed from single use bottles that will be used for one client only. 

  • I have invested in state of the art HEPA / Ionic air filtration in the treatment room and you may notice a slight increase in background noise.
