COVID-19 Shut Down Relief
On March 24, 2020 all Massage Therapists, among other professionals, had to stop working on clients due to Executive Order 55 put in place by the Governor of VA to help flatten the curve of the Corona Virus pandemic.
April 20, 2020 I've launched my own "COVID-19 Shut Down Relief" efforts to keep business going to some capacity while we are going through this chaotic time together. Below is a list of ways that people can support my small business and my livelihood. I pray that this will stimulate "relief" for me while it also provides "relief" for you.
May 13, 2020 I'm leaving my online options on the bottom of this page as they are still great choices for feeling better whether or not you are social distancing. I'm adding updates as we begin to phase in going back to work with restrictions.
It's My Privilege to Serve You
My highest priority is the health and wellness of my family, my clients, and the community. While Governor Northam has issued Phase One to go into effect on Friday, May 15th, my office will have a soft reopening with limited services and limited hours until further notice.
I've updated my office protocol with the following enhanced safety measures. These will help create a safe, responsible space for everyone.
What You Can Expect
-There is no way to fully eliminate risk of transmitting COVID-19 at this time.
If you have concerns, please stay home until risks are lower.
See my website for ways I can help you online.
-Clients will not be scheduled back to back to allow for thorough cleaning
of commonly touched surfaces
-All clients and myself will be required to wear a face mask (per Govt.)
”We know that at least 44% of all infections--and the majority of community-acquired transmissions--occur from people without any symptoms
(asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic people).”
-For now I am only taking clients needing pain relief at the office, using more advanced techniques while allowing minimum skin to skin contact.
For zero contact, online help, my video classes and restorative movement sessions
via video chat are great choices. Classic massage will not be available until further notice. (71% of COVID-19 deaths involve blood clots and they don’t know why.
It’s not advisable to receive massage or bodywork when there is a blood clot risk).
-I’m choosing to practice ”Open Air Body Care”. Whenever weather permits, bodywork will be performed outside in front of my office with equipment under a shelter. Dress appropriately for the weather and still be capable of movement. (Statistics show almost 100% of virus transmission happens indoors sharing the same air for a period of time)
-My hours will be limited to afternoons for a while due to schools being closed and morning responsibilities. Days open during the week may vary for some time due to helping with family responsibilities during this time. (Please forgive me while I try to adjust)
-1 client will be with me at a time (if possible, please arrive alone or
have your party wait outside at a distance)
-Complimentary face masks for clients not wearing one (I’ve ordered masks of decent quality that are washable/reusable. 1st mask is included in your first session. You will be required to bring it back for follow up visits or pay $15 for a replacement mask. These have 3 fabric layers. A special, highly absorbent, silver infused antimicrobial fabric and cool touch moisture wicking fabric that is also silver infused since it will be on your skin with vapor moisture for long periods of time.
They are hypo-allergenic, eco-friendly, made in USA, and much more).
-No physical contact during our greetings
-Hand sanitizer is available for client use
-Social distance whenever possible
-Adherence to maximum occupancy restrictions when indoors
-If you do have flu-like symptoms or a fever, please let me know before you arrive so that we may reschedule your visit.
- Zero or Minimal Contact Payments preferred will be: Electric Pay (Zelle, Google Pay, Venmo), Cash (in exact amount), Check, Credit card (no signature for transactions)
Thank you for your support and patience during this difficult time.
