Keeping Clients Safe During Coronovirus Pandemic

A note from the owner:  “It is now May 2022 and things are at least better as to Covid-19, however, we are holding steady with our office protocols.  We still have several clients who are immune-compromised and we are still getting in clients now, who kept putting off getting massage because they wanted to stay safe.  OUR OFFICE IS A SAFE SPOT.  We created that environment and we aim to keep it that way”.

Clients are required to wear a mask WHEN FACE UP and you can take a break from the mask if need be.  When you are face down, you take the mask off as we have a different face cradle system.  We wear masks throughout the session.  Our powerful air purifiers run from the time we enter the office until the time we leave.  For more in-depth info, see below…

MANDATES AND REQUIREMENTS FROM THE GOVERNOR

Updated massage spaceWhen Governor DeWine said we could open, he hit all cosmetology and massage therapy businesses with a 3-page document which contained mandates and requirements for opening.  That document alone delayed our opening because we literally had to redo our main massage space. 

We also could not offer couple massage with two therapists and two clients in the same room, which meant we had to redesign everything so that we could see couples, but not in the same room.  A huge part of our practice happens to be couple massage.  We also had to not have linens out in the open so we had to invest a lot of money in two huge cabinets to house all linens behind closed doors.  As a result, we basically totally redesigned our main massage room.

WE HAVE GONE ABOVE THE MANDATES

We are using a very powerful and expensive air purifier in our office (and in our home) to help clean the air several times in an hour.  It is made for particles the size of coronovirus and has a top-rated hepa filter.  The unit is listed on the Consumer Reports list of air purifiers.  We have two different units at the office and one unit at our house.  We were not required to have an air purifier but for us, it WAS required per our own standards.  

OTHER THINGS WE ARE DOING

Since we were shut down in March of this year, we are doing the following to help keep everyone safe:

  • Both therapists and clients wear a mask and all clients must use hand sanitizer upon entering our office.
  • All common surfaces are being meticulously sanitized and wiped down daily with a  CDC approved disinfectant and we spray all surfaces that are touched by us or clients with Lysol spray several times daily.
  • We scrub our hands and forearms after working on each client and we wash our hands prior to working on a client.
  • We ask lifestyle type questions of every client who comes in for an appointment and ask if anyone has any Covid-19 symptoms.
  • We also made the decision when opening back up to LIMIT the number of clients coming in so our exposure to clients is limited.

TO SET AN APPOINTMENT

To set an appointment with me, call or text Donna at 216-339-3401.  I see texts first and can generally respond right away or at least within 60-90 minutes.  We offer afternoon, evening and some weekend appointments.
