Covid-19 Health Measures

While no Interaction can be made to be completely risk free, reasonable people can make reasonable and flexible decisions based upon the best scientific information available in the moment, often relying on the advice of experts, to proceed with caution where all sides are in agreement that the risks involved are outweighed by the benefits of giving and receiving care.

In healthcare settings we describe the measures taken to prevent the spread of contagious disease as "Standard" or historically "Universal" Precautions, and in lay terms Standard Precautions roughly means treating every person and every surface as though they are possibly infectious at all times during every interaction. While I have always prided myself on the sanitation practices and cleanliness of my professional and personal spaces, I, like many others in the massage community experienced a wake up call with the Covid-19 pandemic to the realities of our closely knit society and the necessity to "up our game" to a medical standard.

The list below represents the actions I am currently implementing in my practice to ensure the safety of my clients, myself and my greater community as I return to work from pandemic absence, and while not exhaustive is offered along with the document links above in the spirit of transparency so that each individual may make their own risk/benefit analysis. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly should you have any questions or concerns regarding  your comfort and/or safety during any upcoming visit to our clinic.
