REDUCE EXPOSURE: Massage Sci's cancellation policy allows you to cancel an appointment without any fee penalty if you are ill or suspect you may be contagious. You are encouraged to stay home and reschedule only once past the CDC's contagious timeline for your condition. If I am ill, I close my office and only open once I am both well and past the contagious period.
My home office is just one room and one client restroom. I see only one person at a time. Traffic is quite limited with no waiting room or other staff.
LIMIT CONTACT SURFACES: The contents of my office are intentionally selected to limit the number of and texture on contact surfaces. Furniture is non-porous and streamlined designs that decrease surface area and contact points. Equipment such as trashcans have foot pedals to open.
EXTRA PROTECTIVE BARRIERS: My massage treatment table has extra barriers beyond the usual standard practices of many other providers.
Under the linens (which are changed for every client) is a hypoallergenic, waterproof barrier that is sanitized between clients and protects the underlying layers (table warmer, foam topper) from client-to-client exposure.
For an extra layer of protection where clients place their head during a massage, I use a one-use mask-like barrier around the face cradle.
Linens are laundered after each use with a fragrance-free and dye-free sensitive skin detergent and a sanitizer.
Frequently contacted surfaces (all equipment, doorknobs, chairs, desks, pens, credit card tablet, and the floor) are sanitized between each appointment. I use a hospital-grade anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral solution by Citrus II.
Hand sanitizer and one-use hand towels are available for client use.
I use a fragrance-free and dye-free sensitive skin hand soap immediately before and after every massage.
By request, a massage therapy session with the use of nitrile gloves is available.
A HEPA air purifier with UVC sanitizer runs in the office 24/7/365.
Please feel free to request any additional precautions to ensure your safety and comfort during the massage.
