CONTAGIONS & ALLERGENS

covid19 info
 

Clients with symptoms and/or have been exposed to COVID-19, must follow the most current Center for Disease Control timelines and procedures. As I serve many immunocompromised clients, please err on the side of caution and reschedule if you have any symptoms or are within the advised contagious timeline.

At this time, clients may mask or not mask based on their own risk assessment.
If you prefer I mask as well, I will gladly do so with a KN95. This is subject to change per community level recommendations.

I have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, and one booster.

standard precautions

 

I serve many clients with varying immune health or allergies. Your safety and comfort are my top priority in maintaining a low-risk environment. Please contact me with specific concerns - especially allergies like dog, cat, or peanuts.

You must reschedule if ill, have a fever, or contagious. Reschedule only once fully recovered. When I am ill, I do the same. No one wants cooties - me or other clients. Late cancel fees are waived if symptoms are sudden onset or you receive last minute notice of a contagion exposure.

 A HEPA air purifier cycles my 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.
 

Decor is minimal and non-porous. After each appointment, contact surfaces are cleaned with a disinfectant and linens are changed to be laundered. Beneath linens are waterproof barriers that shield other layers from direct contact.

 

By request, I will gladly be gloved and/or masked.

scents, goo & treats

 

I don't diffuse oils or spray/burn/wear artificial fragrances. I occasionally do use essential oil sprays or sandalwood incense in adjacent rooms, but can refrain upon request.

 

All clients are asked to refrain from applying heavily scented oils/perfumes/lotions before arrival. This reduces risk of allergic or sensitivity reactions for both me and other clients and is super appreciated.

 

Sheets and pillow cases used on the massage table are 100% bamboo and the top blanket is cotton.

 

Hand and laundry soaps are fragrance-free, dye-free, and formulated for sensitive skin.

I use 100% pure jojoba oil during massage; it's unscented, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic (non pore clogging), and doesn't stain fabric. You're welcome to bring your own oil/lotion, or request none to be used.

 

Only after request or consent, I may apply a topical pain reliever or essential oil.

Occasionally I offer Yum Earth candy, which is vegan and free of big eight allergens and artificial dyes.
