Coronavirus Precautions

Due to COVID-19, we are taking extra precautions to protect you and others. If you have a scheduled appointment, please arrive wearing a face mask and wait outside our office door until your therapist invites you in to your sanitized room. You will use hand sanitizer, have your temperature taken, and sign an informed consent stating that you are aware of the risk involved in receiving bodywork during this time.  It is recommended that we keep talking and visiting to a minimum, and payment will be handled in your massage room.  If paying by check, please have your payment written beforehand.  MOST IMPORTANTLY, take a self-assessment before leaving home.  Let us know if you exhibit ANY cold or flu symptoms, or have been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days.  It is IMPERATIVE to the safety of your therapist and to others who may be seen in our office that you do not come in unless you are in good health.  And please know that your therapist will not hesitate to cancel your appointment if they exhibit any suspect symptoms as well.

You’ve come to the right place!
