Phase 2 Re-Opening
Per the State Department of Health, non-urgent massage is now able to resume in Washington. I will be able to work as long as surge capacity in Snohomish county remains under 80%. My official opening date was June 22nd to existing clients, and as of July 20th new clients are welcomed.
I have been researching ways to keep us all safe as I reopen Redeeming Touch Massage. The most important thing you can do is 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:
- I will maintain my high standards of sanitation and cleanliness, wiping down with a sanitizing cloth all surfaces touched by the client, tools that I use, and provide clean linens for each client.
- I will take your temperature upon arrival. Anyone with a temperature over 100.4 will be asked to reschedule.
- Hands will be washed.
- Sessions held at Willows House: Clients will be asked to sanitize their hands upon entering.
- Sessions held in your home: I will wash my hands immediately upon entering prior to setting up the table or touching any of your doorknobs, light switches, walls, etc.
- I will air out the room when at Willows House.
- I will wear a cloth face mask for the duration of each appointment, changing masks between clients.
- I will sanitize and wipe down the restroom accessible to you before and after each visit.
Please understand that these measures do not eliminate all risk. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns about these changes.
I am limiting my initial reopening to eight appointments a week, no more than three appointments in a day.
Priority booking will go to those who have credits on their accounts, or existing clients with a new/acute diagnosis.
