APPOINTMENT PROTOCOLS & PROCEDURES

* Please bring your own water for before/after your session. Please leave it in your car as you won’t be able to drink it with your mask on.

* Please only bring in the bare essentials to the Massage Studio.

* Please take into consideration that during your entire time in the massage studio you will have a proper mask firmly fitting covering your mouth and nose. Make sure that you schedule a session length that you will be comfortable with including intake, disrobing, session & outtake time. You may want to begin with a shorter session than usual.

* The door will be locked when you arrive. Knock. There is a dry erase board with reminders of procedures.

* Before entering the massage studio your temperature will be taken with a touch-less thermometer. (mine will be taken each day as well) If your temperature is above 100.3 services cannot be provided. You will need to self isolate yourself for a minimum of 72 hours & your appointment will be rescheduled after that period of time.

* NO Shoes worn inside. Please remove before entering or first thing upon entering the studio (there is a chair right inside the door)

* Wash your hands thoroughly.

* I recommend we keep the intake & outtake time to a minimum along with conversation during your massage to assure you are able to be comfortable throughout your session.

MASKS:

* Appropriate masks are required & must be worn at all times upon entering the massage studio.

NO EXCEPTIONS.

* Clean Cloth with filter or Disposable masks are allowed. Face shield in addition to either of these are allowed but won’t work face down.

*Bandanas, Scarfs, Cloth Mask w/o filter & Face Shields alone are NOT acceptable face coverings at this time.

* Disposable Masks are available for $1.00

* The Mask MUST cover your nose & mouth securely the entire time you are in the studio. Pulling down the mask will immediately terminate your session.

* If you are having any difficulties breathing alert me immediately before pulling down your mask. Do not wait until it is unbearable.

* I will have a robe available in case you have difficulties breathing or become uncomfortable. I will fully open the bathroom window while you put on the robe and in the bathroom you will face the window with the curtain behind your head before pulling mask down. Remain facing the window the entire time mask is down. Please do not plan on this break when considering your appointment length or plan on this becoming routine. If you need a break your next session will be scheduled as a shorter one.

FOR YOUR COMFORT & SAFETY:

* flooring that is anti-fatigue, anti-slip and easy to clean/sanitize

* the room has an Air Scrubber to clean & purify the air & surfaces, plants (natures air purifiers)and a small fountain.

* 2 windows in the treatment space & 1 in the bathroom with a large fan for excellent ventilation.

* All bedding are cleaned properly and directly stored in an air tight container until applied to the bed for your session

* Before, between and after each session all bedding is removed (placed in air tight container), all surfaces cleaned & sanitized.

* My mask is cleaned daily and a new filter each day. As always my hands and arms up to elbows are cleaned thoroughly before each session.

* I am staying informed & educated by reading the latest updates provided by the ABMP (my massage association), OBMT (Oregon Massage Board), OHA (Oregon Health Authority), WHO (World Health Organization) and the CDC (Center for disease control & prevention)
