Cleaning Protocols

Massage Table

  • Table will be stripped of sheets, headrest covers, blankets and anything the client has touched. 

  • Headrest and surrounding areas will be properly sanitized with disinfectant. 

  • Bolster will be disinfected as well as pillows having additional coverings which will be switched out between each use.

  • As always, clean sheets, clean face rest covers, and clean blankets will be used for every client. 

Myself and the Room

  • My hands and forearms up to my elbow are washed for at least 20 seconds before and after each massage and after I clean. 

  • Quick Vacuum to clean the floor between each client.

  • Disinfecting wipes/spray will be used to clean the door and door handles, desk, pens, chair, computer and everything clients could have touched or I touched myself.

Protocols and guidelines for your appointment

  • Massage is contraindicated for anyone in the high risk category for Covid-19 as per CDC guidelines. I cannot 100% ensure your safety when you’re in my office due to the highly contagious nature of this virus. If you are in this category, you should wait longer until cases in our area are non-existent. 

  • As I cannot 100% ensure your safety, clients will sign a liability release to receive massage. Clients will have to fill out a new intake form with questions related to Covid-19 before treatment 

  • I’ll emphasize that if you are sick in any way, reschedule your appointment. 

  • Masks will be worn during the intake process at the beginning of appointments and after the massage. 

  • During the massage session, a mask will be worn if you are in a face-up or side-lying position; if you do not want to wear a mask, you can pull up the sheet to cover your nose and mouth. You will not be required to wear a mask while in a face-down position. If you do not have a mask, I can provide one for you. I’ll be wearing a mask for your protection.

  • Clients will need to stay in their cars and receive a text notification when I’m ready for them. Waiting in the office is not permitted at this time.

  • Clients will be required to use hand sanitizer on their hands before entering the treatment room. 

  • Clothing will be placed on the chair and shoes under or next to the chair. Take shoes off at the entrance of the treatment room or at the chair. 

  • I can use gloves for your massage session upon request. I do not believe this measure is necessary, but it is an option for you. 

  • Clothed massage is an option. I always let my new clients know that this is an option for their comfort if they are uncomfortable taking off clothes. So it’s totally an option if you want to keep your clothes on as an additional barrier if you wish.

  • You can request to have a chair massage instead of a table massage.
