CONTAGIONS & ALLERGENS
I serve many clients with varying immune health or severe allergies. Your safety and comfort are a top priority in maintaining a low-risk environment.
You MUST reschedule if ill, have a fever, or contagious. Sometimes we just wake up sick, so late cancel fees are waived if you contact me prior to your time. You may reschedule only once you're past the CDC's recommended timelines. When I am ill, I close down and do the same.
A HEPA air purifier cycles all the office air every 12 minutes, removing 99.97% of airborne particles >0.1 microns. It's also rated for double the square footage of my office. The HVAC system uses a hospital-grade (MERV 13) filter.
Underneath all massage table linens are waterproof barriers shielding other layers from any direct contact. Linens are properly removed and laundered after each use.
Decor is minimal and non-porous. All contact surfaces are disinfected after each client with a hospital-grade anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral solution.
By request, I can be gloved. Contact me about specific concerns - especially allergies like dog, cat, peanuts, or aloe.
Reschedule if in the last 14 days you:
- have symptoms of COVID-19
- are positive for COVID-19
- are waiting on a test for COVID-19
- are instructed to quarantine
- attended a large indoor event
Reschedule if in the last 14 days you had close contact with someone who has something on that list above.
Remember, late cancel fees are waived if symptoms are sudden or you get last minute notice of exposure.
Unsure if experiencing just allergies? Let's err on the side of caution for now.
At this time, we both must wear a mask the entire visit. Disposable surgical masks are available. My uniform and masks are also changed multiple times per day.
You must read and sign this risk and tracing consent form. It will be emailed the day before your massage.
scents & goos
I don't diffuse oils. I also don't spray, burn, or wear artificial fragrances. I do use essential oil sprays or sandalwood incense in adjacent rooms, but can refrain upon request.
Do not apply heavily scented oils, perfumes, or lotions before you arrive or while at my office. This is a courtesy to both me and the next client and is greatly appreciated.
The soaps I use hand washing and linen laundering are fragrance-free, dye-free, and designed for sensitive skin. I apply a non-scented, hypoallergenic lotion from a closed dispenser during massage. Hypoallergenic jojoba oil is also available. You're welcome to bring your own lotion or oil. Only after your request or consent, I may apply a topical muscle reliever or Simply Earth essential oil.
