It will be a gradual slow and steady start back to Massage Therapy. As we are officially allowed to open treating patients with most serious needs first. What does this mean for you? It means we all need to be ready for some changes and be patient.
It means that my hours are greatly reduced for now, working less evening hours and less days. It means I must leave at least 30 min. between each patient to accomplish all the disinfecting requirements needed. I will need to wear both a mask and a face shield.. so I had better be sure my eyebrows look amazing:)
You will need to wear a mask to the appointment, however you will not need to wear it when face down only while lying on your back face up. Treatment if needed to neck and head will mostly be when you are face down to limit contact, unless deemed necessary.
I will need to move and rebook clients many times over the next month or two as we continue to sort things out...so my apologies! Watch for emails:)
At this time I will not be able to treat children, pregnancy or high risk patients at this time, again I hope you understand, but it is not worth the risk.
