COVID-19 Update

Updated April 18, 2021:

I have personally made the decision to receive the covid vaccination, and was inoculated on February 27th with the first dose of Moderna, and the second dose on March 27th. I experienced soreness after the first dose for 3 days, and temporary muscle soreness for a few hours with the second dose. No additional symptoms. 

As we begin to re-open Washington and open up our capacity, I have  a set of guidelines to maximize our collective health and safety. The most important thing you can do is reschedule your session and stay home if you have experienced any symptoms or been around anyone who has experienced symptoms in the last two weeks. Also, due to the blood clotting complications that many Covid patients have been experiencing, I do not recommend coming in for massage if you have recovered from Covid unless a doctor has cleared you.

Here are things to know that I am doing to reduce our risk when working together:

    1. I will maintain my high standards of sanitation and cleanliness, wiping down with a sanitizing wipe all surfaces touched by myself, including tools that I use, such as the massage table (before and after every session) and also continue to provide clean linens for each client.
      The top heavy blanket has been subtracted, but please feel free to use a personal blanket to help you keep warm during colder times of the year.
    2. Hands will be washed! I will wash my hands immediately upon entering prior to setting up the table or touching any of your doorknobs, light switches, walls, etc.
    3. I will wear a filtered cloth face mask for the duration of each appointment, changing masks between clients. During your session, while  you are laying facedown, I hammock the face cradle so that you can loosen your mask so that you can breath a little easier. All other times when your face is exposed, you are to wear a mask.
    4. In addition to wearing a face mask, I will wear a Z-shield to help safe guard any sudden sneezes or coughs (allergy season is upon us, these things happen).
    5. If I see multiple households in one day, I space out and max out at 3 household visits, no more than 4 sessions in one day. I change clothes between each home visit.

Please understand that these measures do not eliminate all risk. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns about these expectations.
