COVID-19 

Safety Protocols

As provincial restrictions begin to lift, I will continue to follow all COVID precautions and safety measures set by the Ministry of Health and the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. 
  • You will be sent a COVID-19 screening survey via email 2-3 days before your appointment. Failure to complete this screening will result in the cancellation of your appointment. We will do another screening together at the time of your appointment.  Please answer all questions honestly, these screenings are for your safety, my safety, and all clients coming and going from the office. I will be completing the self-assessment before every shift and reassessing between clients. 

  • If you’ve tested positive or you have COVID-19 symptoms, please wait 10 days to book or reschedule your massage appointment. Symptoms need to be improving for 24 hours (or 48 hours for gastrointestinal symptoms) and no fever present. Note: Day 0 is the first day of symptoms or your positive test result, whichever came first. Please do not come to the office if you have developed symptoms or are feeling unwell. 

  • You will be required to wear a mask while in the office (and throughout your treatment). As the client, you may wear a disposable or reusable cloth mask as long as it covers your nose and mouth entirely. (Masks should fit snugly on your face to ensure no gaps).  If you do not have access to a mask please let me know prior to your arrival. I will be wearing a KN95 mask throughout the duration of your time in the office. I have completed appropriate training on safely using and disposing of PPE, related to droplet and contact precautions.

  • The office and waiting room will be fully stocked with hand sanitizer, please sanitize your hands upon arrival and any time you touch your face. As always, I will be washing my hands with warm soapy water (forearms and elbows included) before and after each treatment and will be sanitized regularly. I encourage you to try and use the washroom before arriving to minimize traffic. ​​

  • I will be using a cleaning solution that is approved by Health Canada. Surfaces that will be cleaned/disinfected include but are not limited to the table, face cradle and stool, client chair, desk, payment terminal/electronics, doorknobs, light switches,  bathroom surfaces/handles, and floors. Linens, as always, will be new for every client, stored in a sealed container after use and washed in hot water with bleach. Extra linens will no longer be stored in the treatment room. I will no longer be using a heating pad on the table and will be using vinyl pillows that can be disinfected and covers replaced with every new client. At this time I will not be offering Cupping Therapy to reduce the amount of equipment being used.
