will see some changes when it is time for your next appointment:
I will communicate with you beforehand to obtain updates to
your health information and ask you specifically about your
potential exposure to COVID-19.
I will greet you at the door and use a no touch thermal temperature
screening to confirm that you dont have a fever.
Ill ask you if you have developed any symptoms of illness
since we last spoke. If you feel ill on the day of your session,
there is no penalty for canceling your appointment. Massage
is not advised if you have any symptoms of illness.
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 this practitioner.
There is hand sanitizer that I will ask you to use whenever
you enter and exit the studio.
Please bring a face mask to use while you are in the massage
studio, and during your massage.
look forward to seeing you 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.
