Research findings continue to evolve on how SARS-CoV-2 is spread. Currently it's generally agreed that it's transmittable through the inhalation of droplets from a person who is infected.
There is a risk of transmitting or contracting the virus with
any close, sustained contact with another person.
Our practice is focusing on CDC and EPA recommendations for keeping all surfaces sanitized and disinfected where possible to mitigate the risk of transmission. We additionally are requesting clients help us maintain social distancing recommendations.
All of the products we use to sanitize have been checked against the EPAs List N (Disinfectants for use Against SARS-CoV-2). Some UV-C lights will be used throughout the practice as well.
We have contact-less payment options available; please contact your individual massage therapist for their options.
All surfaces in the Massage Room, Lobby and Bathroom are sanitized between each client session including, but not limited to:
Hard Surfaces, table tops, towel cabinets and counters
Massage table and face cradle
Lotion / product dispensers
Door knobs, door touch-points,
cabinet handles and knobs
Electronics and/or tablets
There has not been a great deal of research on air purifiers and the transmission of COVID-19. We are choosing to use air purifiers in each massage room because there ARE suggestions that it could help against disease transmission.
Each of the air purifiers utilize true HEPA filters and have a Clean Air Delivery Rate of at least 240.
