Please read the information on this page
it is lengthy, yet comprehensive to the point of providing resources for FAQs, policy updates, indemnity understandings, and personal perspectives. It is this page which provides required information as well as reminds you to seek clarification about anything related to your session
Please be advised that services can not be legally performed on individuals showing any sign of illness such as fever, cough, runny nose, congestion, or difficulty breathing.
Although some of these symptoms can also be attributed to allergies or other seasonal/mild conditions, it is impossible to distinguish from a speculative standpoint what is a valid symptom of Covid-19 and what is not. As per the directives of state government as well as the licensing bodies associated with massage therapy, it is prohibited for me to work on anyone showing any sign of sickness, no matter how mild, explainable, or negligible. It is advised that all clients take their own temperature before arriving for their appointment. For purposes of observing universal precautions and minimizing communicable risk, this is not something that will be or should be done at this office, you should take your temperature at home. For reasons previously stated and out of respect for the necessary inconveniences of staying home if you’re feeling or presenting in such ways that may be construed as ill, please do not enter this office.
For clarification about prohibitive conditions please see below:
Do you currently or have you had in the last 48 HRS a temperature of 100.4 F or greater?
Do you have a cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, runny nose or loss of taste or smell?
Have you had contact with a person known to be infected with COVID-19 within the past 14 days?
Posting/Implementing these guidelines is a requirement for reopening.
Doing so is necessary for me to maintain my legal right to practice.
Disregarding any of the above listed measures places me at risk of being shut down, not to mention creating a potentiality for communicable illness to be spread.
These mandates are not of my choosing.
These measures are of government origin and therefor separate from any belief, feelings, opinions, or conflicting information
Thank you for your understanding and support
