Massage during a pandemic:
Covid-19 requirements & precautions

In this new public health context, massage is not without risk. It is my intention to offer this service cautiously, with as many precautions as possible to minimize risk in order to keep us both safe and minimize transmission in our communities while providing much needed care to those who need it.

Vaccination status:

I’m fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and have a preference for my clients to be vaccinated.

That said, I understand that some folks have plenty of reasons for not being vaccinated. I’m happy to work with unvaccinated folk, but will take additional precautions to keep myself & my other clients and you as safe as possible.) Please let me know your vaccination status!

Requirements of clients:

  • Commit to following public health guidelines.
  • Provide an honest assessment of your exposure risks / don’t come in if you’re sick.
  • Prior to the session, if you or someone that you have contact with exhibit any symptoms of or are diagnosed with covid-19, notify me immediately for a no-cost cancellation / rescheduling.
  • If, within the week after our session, you or anyone you have contact with exhibits symptoms of or is diagnosed with covid-19, notify me immediately so that I can get tested and begin contact tracing. 

Protocol modifications: 

  • At this phase of the pandemic, I’m totally comfortable with my clients being unmasked, but I’ll wear one during all of my sessions – it feel like the new normal to help me keep from passing any germs to you.
  • Bring your own water bottle

Commitments to clients:
