Covid-19 

Wearing face masks is still required in healthcare settings. Practices of massage therapists and massage clinics are healthcare settings in Washington State. The mandate applies to vaccinated individuals as well. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

 

I became fully vaccinated in February 2021. In November 2021, I received the booster shot. I will continue to wear a KN95 mask and follow my cleaning procedures as outlined below.

Effective June 2nd, 2020, these protocols are completed within 30-60 minute buffers to allow thorough sanitation and to maintain social distancing between sessions:

  1. The window gets opened immediately to air out the room.

  2. The massage therapist changes PPE gear and clothes.

  3. The massage table, chairs, equipment, cushions, furniture, lotion/oil bottles, reusable PPE gear, and all tools such as cups & hot stones are cleaned and disinfected with an EPA-approved disinfectant. The cleaning agent soaks for at least 10 minutes. 

  4. Touch surfaces are sanitized, like light switches and doorknobs.

  5. Fresh linens, such as blankets, pillowcases, towels, face cradle covers, and sheets are stored in clean sealed containers. Dirty linens are stored in a sealed container and sent to the dry cleaners at the end of the day. 

  6. The floor gets mopped with an EPA-approved disinfectant after each session. The vinyl blinds are cleaned weekly. 

*An air purifier by LEVOIT is in operation during business hours inside the massage studio. Waiting areas and bathrooms are spaces shared with other independent providers and businesses. These areas are maintained weekly by a cleaner. I will try to disinfect the main floor's bathroom and waiting area before and after every appointment.
