Below you will find a list of commonly asked questions related to the COVID-19 crisis and the resumption of in-person service options.
As this is an ever evolving situation, please check back regularly as the CDC updates us on the status of the virus. To all our clients, current and future, please stay safe and healthy.
*All plans and protocols are contingent on government regulation and CDC guidelines regarding the safety of resuming in-person operations. If further spikes in cases create a renewed need for quarantine measures, services are subject to rescheduling or cancellation.
The virus that causes Covid-19 is highly infectious and can cause deadly symptoms in many vulnerable individuals. While asymptomatic cases do exist and are a cause for concern, the most common symptoms of infection include a fever, unexplained cough, muscle weakness, and fatigue. Though not definitive by any means, temperature taking and symptom checking are helpful tools to determine if the session can safely proceed or to tell you if you might need to seek treatment and testing.
Though transmission risk can never totally be zero, face masks have been clinically proven to significantly lower the likelihood of person to person spread of the SARS-2 Coronavirus. The extra fabric traps moisture particles from your breath that may contain traces of the virus. In order to protect ourselves, our family, and other clients from possible infection, it is required that you wear a facial covering, even while receiving your service (unless that service cannot be done while wearing a mask).
Because of the risks involved in participating in an activity (massage,facials, etc.) that requires skin to skin contact (i.e. closer than 6 ft.), it is imperative that clients are honest and up front about their risk factor for being infected or exposed to infection within the last 2-14 days. Withholding information about possible infection could cost one of our clients or loved ones their lives. Therefore, we are mandating that you sign an intake (or update your intake if you are a current client) stating that you will inform us honestly of your quarantine practices, testing history, new or worsening symptoms, or intent to be tested to protect the health and safety of everyone with whom we come in contact.
Because this virus can be so easily transmitted, we have put in place the following safety and sanitation measures for bodywork services:
