COVID-19 Statement and Policies

Updated 5/19/2021

I am vaccinated, open for business, and taking clients by appointment request.  Although the mask mandate has been lifted for many activities for those who have been vaccinated due to the physically close nature of massage therapy I will be following CDC guidance for healthcare workers.  Masking will still be required in my office and during the massage when lying face-up and I will continue to use my heightened air-quality and sanitation strategies.

If you have been vaccinated or have a vaccination scheduled please wait at least two days before scheduling in order to insure you won't have an adverse reaction to the vaccine.  Flu-like symptoms, arm pain, and fatigue are common adverse affects that typically pass in a day or two.  If you have any of these on a day you are scheduled please let me know and I will reschedule you.  To ensure that your immune system is fully protecting you I would recommend waiting to schedule for at least two weeks after your vaccination.

In order to create a safe environment I have made some changes to my office and business. It is my hope that I have found a balance between the relaxing, therapeutic experience you are accustomed to with the things necessary to keep each other safe and reduce the risk of spreading the SARS CoV-2 virus.

New policies for clients:

  • Masks must be worn in my office at all times.  During your massage you may remove your mask while lying face down.  A pillow case attached to the face will help minimize respiratory droplets.

  • The building will be locked so when you arrive call or text me at 859-576-9409 and I will come let you in.  Before entering my office we will make a stop at the restroom so you can wash your hands.

  • Maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet at all times with the exception of your massage.

  • You must fill out the emailed COVID-19 questionnaire within 24 hours of your visit.  If I determine there is a risk of infection we will reschedule your massage for at least two weeks from that date.

I have made some changes in the office to increase safety and sanitation:

  • HEPA filter that filters all air in the room several times per hour.

  • I will wear clean scrubs and apron for each client.

  • All linens will be kept in sealed containers until used.

  • The office will be aired out for 45 minutes between each client.

  • EPA recommended disinfectants used on the table, face cradle, and all touch surfaces between each client.

  • I can send invoices when requested for touchless online payment and have an in-office card reader that doesn't require me to touch your card.  I will still accept cash and check as well.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available for your use.

  • As always I will wash my hands before and after your massage and use hand sanitizer during treatment when necessary.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
