What we are doing to keep you safe
I hope you all are well. I am looking forward to seeing you all again (hopefully) sooner rather than later! I want to make sure that you are aware of the changes being made to my practice to ensure your safety and reduce the potential for spread of COVID-19.
A lot of the changes I will be making are based off the guidelines released by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards. Please feel free to check them out here.
What the FSMBT has released are suggestions (not requirements) based on information from the CDC. I will also be following the required protocols that will be laid out by the San Francisco Department of Health once Massage Therapy is allowed to resume. Those specifics are yet to be released by SFDPH.
The list below includes just some of the changes that will be happening in my practice:
Using plastic sheets and face cradle covers to more effectively sanitize with EPA approved disinfectants
Client and myself will be wearing a face mask during sessions and I will also utilize a face shield when working certain parts of the body (head, neck, and shoulders)
Providing hand sanitizer and face masks for clients
Giving myself an hour between sessions to clean according to CDC protocols and air out the space
Using a HEPA Air filter as well as opening windows during sessions
Furniture in the room will be covered in plastic for more effective cleaning
