Due to Covid-19 we have implemented new protocols and taken training courses to better serve you during these times. This page highlights major updates.
A comprehensive Infection Control class was completed in May 2020 and I am responsible for training students of massage in Infection Control procedures including Covid19 protocols.
Updates to Appointments
While we are navigating this Pandemic, safety is the first priority. Appointment are limited to allow for proper disinfecting between clients. Below are AMTA & OSHA guidelines for Massage Therapy practices that we are adhering to at this time.
Institute thorough cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing protocols in your massage room as well as any communal areas and of any objects clients touch. Consider the laundry policy for your clothes, linens, towels, and other washable objects.
Consider your booking practices and make any changes to allow for sanitization procedures and recognizing social distancing recommendations that may limit the number of people in one space. Evaluate your cancellation policy and protocols if a client shows signs of illness.
Maintain regular housekeeping practices, including routine cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces, equipment, and other elements of the work environment. When choosing cleaning chemicals, employers should consult information on Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved disinfectant labels with claims against emerging viral pathogens. Products with EPA-approved emerging viral pathogens claims are expected to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 based on data for harder to kill viruses. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use of all cleaning and disinfection products (e.g., concentration, application method and contact time, PPE).
