My practice follows the rules of the Connecticut Department of Public Health on COVID-19 and follows the Massage & Bodywork Guidelines for Practice recommended by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards, along with infection control recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
As of July 27, 2021, the CDC has recommended that masks be worn indoors, even by those vaccinated, in “hot spots”. Six counties in Connecticut, including Fairfield and New Haven Counties, are now classified as having "Substantial transmission rates" of Covid infections (four-tiered classification: low, moderate, substantial and high). Medical experts have explained that the data shows a vaccinated person with a delta variant breakthrough infection sheds the same amount of virus as an unvaccinated person. According to CT.gov/coronavirus “Businesses … have the option to require masks to be worn by everyone in their establishments.” Therefore, I am changing my mask-wearing rules back to all clients must wear a well-fitted mask regardless of vaccination status.
I am fully vaccinated and wear a KN95 face mask and medical goggles for extra precaution.
For your health and wellbeing, I've installed the latest technology in air purifiers: AirFree air purifiers are in every room (entry, office, bathroom, and massage rooms). AirFree technology destroys viruses, bacteria, pet dander, dust mites, and mold. They are completely silent and environmentally friendly. You'll breathe easier at your next appointment.
Clients must take a shower just before their massage either at home or at the Massage Studio; bodywash, shampoo, and conditioner are provided. Check out a photograph of the designer walk-in shower on the Photo Gallery tab. If you want your head and scalp massaged, please wash your hair, or if not, I will provide a bouffant cap to wear over your hair.
If you feel ill of any kind on the day of your session, please call, text, or email me to cancel your appointment. Massage is not advised if you have any symptoms of illness.
I will greet you at the door and use a no-touch thermal temperature screening to confirm that you don’t have a fever.
Everyone will be required to thoroughly wash their hands with soap and water as soon as they enter the Massage Studio. It is also recommended clients wash or sanitize their hands before they leave the premises.
I change into a clean uniform before every massage.
I only see one client at a time. I pad lots of time before and after each client to do a thorough cleaning and sanitation of the massage studio. The sanitizer, mPerial™ Detergent Disinfectant, is food safe and registered with the EPA 10324-59-83129 and affective against Covid-19.
Contactless payment for debit or credit cards. Cash and local checks still accepted.
The CDC suggest that COVID-19 infection respiratory droplets can be dispersed when people talk. For this reason, talking is limited to communication about pressure, warmth, and comfort while in the enclosed space of the session room.
See you soon.
