DUE TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK, NEW SANITATION PROTOCOLS HAVE PUT IN PLACE TO PROTECT BOTH THERAPIST AND CLIENTS. THIS IS A CHANGE FOR EVERYONE SO I ASK THAT YOU BE RESPECTFUL OF CHANGES AND PLEASE, ASK IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS

Sanitation Protocols:

  • I clean the office on a daily basis, after each client

  • All high touch surfaces will be disinfected with EPA approved cleaner after each client.

  • Bathrooms will be cleaned after each use.

  • All table coverings will be removed in order to be laundered. You may notice the table may not be quite as soft, to allow me to wipe down the actual table in between clients. I usually have something like 3 layers of padding or "fluff" under the sheets you lay on.

  • I will wash my hands in the office, instead of in the restroom. 

  • All soap/sanitizer dispensers will be no-touch dispensers. Paper towels will be provided.
  • Use hand sanitizer liberally! I will get as much as I can (without hoarding, of course), so you can feel comfortable in my space.

  • I have added an air filter and purifier to my treatment room to help scrub particles from the air.

Check-In Protocols:

  • Please wear your mask into the building. A MASK IS A REQUIREMENT! Your mask will be worn throughout the entire appointment.

  • When you arrive, your temperature will be taken and recorded.

  • You will be asked to take your shoes off and put in the closet just inside the door. This closet may be used to hang your clothes as well, if you like.

  • YOU WILL WASH YOUR HANDS AS SOON AS YOU WALK INTO MY OFFICE. I have a sink in my office for your convenience.
  • I will have a 4 question form for you to sign every time you come in.
  • I ask you use sanitizer liberally while in my office.

In-Session Protocols:

  • I will be washing my hands before and after your session IN the treatment room. I will still step out until you are ready, then wash my hands right before I start working. This will avoid cross-contamination as best I can. Oh, yeah, then I'll use more hand sanitizer!

  • Talking will be kept to a minimum during the session.

  • If wearing a mask while face down presents problems, we may adjust. It's a learning experience for everyone.

Post-Session Protocols:

  • Methods of payment I am still working out. It has been recommended not to take checks and cash and to keep it electronic. I have always accepted checks and cash and will continue to do so, I just need to figure out a system. Stay tuned for that.

  • After your appt, please keep your mask on until you are outside the building and headed to your car.

  • I will be changing my shirt in between each client. I've been lost without all the laundry to do these past months (*sarcasm*).

  • I am suspending online booking for now. I have looked into a member portal through my website to allow regular clients to access my schedule. Again, stay tuned. Please contact me directly for appointment times as my schedule will be more limited to start.

  • My cancellation policy will reflect the times. I will not penalize you for less than 24hrs notice if you are feeling sick or have any symptoms of Covid-19. 

  • That said, IF YOU ARE FEELING SICK IN ANY WAY, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!

If you notice something or think of something not mentioned, please let me know. Also, I am going to try to have sanitizer wipes available so you are welcome to wipe down anything for your own peace of mind.
