I hope this finds you and your family in good health. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: my commitment to your safety and health.
By its very nature, massage and bodywork requires skin-to-skin contact and you should be familiar with the fact that infection control has always been a top priority for my practice. As we navigate life with additional requirements and modifications due to the coronavirus, please help me to support all of my clients by cooperating with some new requirements.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. I made these changes to help protect my clients and myself. For example:
I will email an intake form with every appointment made beforehand to obtain updates to your health information and ask you specifically about your potential exposure to COVID-19. Please be completely honest and have it filled out at least 24 hours before your appointment.
Masks are optional to wear throughout your appointment. If you feel you need to wear a mask, or would like me to wear one, please let me know prior to your appointment.
If you can provide your own sheets (for sanitary reasons and less contamination from client to client), please do so.
If you have developed any symptoms of illness since we spoke on the phone or 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, including allergies (coughing, sneezing etc.) during this pandemic. I will also notify you if I become ill or develop symptoms of any kind.
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.”
For hygiene purposes, please shower just before your massage and wash your hands before getting on the table and after the massage is over.
I will provide no touch check out using Venmo when possible, or credit card.
I look forward to seeing you again 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.
To make an appointment, please text or call my office at 203-939-7532.
My practice is open with limited hours and appointments per week until this pandemic is over.
Thank you for being my client. I value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming you back to a safe therapeutic touch.
