Per the recommendation of the California Massage Therapy Council, ABMP, the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards, CDC, and WHO I have updated aspects of my private practice to help reduce the spread of Covid 19. Below is a comprehensive list of how I will do my best to ensure the safety of my clients, myself, and the community. 

Practitioners guidelines:

At the beginning of each day I will check my temperature to make sure it does not exceed 100F. All appointments will be rescheduled if I have a fever, or any flu like symptoms. In the event I come in contact with someone who’s tested positive for Covid-19 I will personally get tested for the safety of others. If I at anytime test positive for Covid-19 I will reschedule all appointments for a minimum of two weeks and until I receive a negative test. I will deep clean and thouroughly sanitize my office space should it be exposed to anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19. I will wear a face mask whenever I am with a client. As always I will wash my hands before and after every appointment. 

 

Appointments:

For flexible appointment times it is recommended to book 3-4 weeks in advance. Evenings and Saturday appointments book the fastest and may need to be scheduled with more notice. Due to the increased flexibility of appointment cancellation without penalty there may be unexpected last minute openings. If you would like to be notified of last minute openings please contact me to be placed on the cancellation list. 

Cancellation Policy:

At this time cancellation fees will be waved for consideration of the health and safety of others. If you experience any of the following please contact me to reschedule your appointment: Symptoms such as a fever over 100F, cough, runny nose, sore throat, difficulty breathing, any Covid-19 or flu like symptoms, contact with someone in the past 14 days that has been diagnosed with Covid-19, etc. No shows or forgetting appointments may be subject to the full fee of the scheduled appointment.

Past cancellation policy: I request 48 hour or more notice for the cancellation of any booked appointment. There will be a 50% charge of the appointment fee for appointments cancelled 24 hours in advance. Last minute cancellations less than 24 hours or no shows will be charged the full fee of the appointment. If you need to cancel the appointment at the last minute and are able to find someone to take you place the cancellation fee will be waived. 

Client Arrival & Intake:

All clients will be required to fill out a new intake form which has added details regarding Covid-19. This will ensure that everyone will enter my office symptom free and provides the ability to aid contact tracing should anyone receive a positive Covid-19 test. The form will be emailed to you to fill out prior to your appointment. If you are not able to fill it out ahead of time please arrive 20 minutes early to do so. For your comfort you may either fill the forms out in your vehicle or in the waiting area inside.

Prenatal & Post Partum Intake Forms


Face masks will be required in office. Please arrive with your mask on. During the session you may remove your mask when laying face down and put it back on when laying face up or in side lying position. If you have concerns about wearing a mask please contact me with your circumstances and I will do my best to accommodate you. Masks are required/recommended for the additional safety and precautions for all those entering my office space and I greatly appreciate your consideration of others. If you do not have a mask I will provide one for you. 

Please arrive early for your session so we can begin right on time. I will be spacing appointments to allow for more cleaning time in between sessions. With the extra cleaning steps needed in between appointments it will be important to start each appointment at the scheduled time. 

 

Office Readiness & Cleaning Protocol:

Should you arrive early and want to access the waiting area it has been adjusted to accommodate for social distancing. Water is provided in the waiting area with cups however if you would like to bring your own cup or canteen you may do so. 

Hand sanitizer and tissues will be readily available in my office. Hooks and hangers are also available if you would prefer to hang your clothing. 

Linens: All towels, sheets, face cradle covers, etc. are changed and clean for each client. All dirty linens are kept in a closed bag and washed daily. 

Sanitizing: Prior to each appointment the following will be freshly sanitized: All common touched surfaces inside my office including door handles, counter tops, knobs, cabinets, pens, chairs/stools, face cradle, table frame below face cradle, bolsters, and oil bottles. All common touched surfaces in the building including the bathroom door and handles, toilet, sink, faucet, soap dispenser, drinking water dispenser, light switches, and front door handles. All trash will be removed after each session. In addition to the sanitizing procedures throughout the day I will also sanitize the alarm keypad and air condition controller pad upon my arrival. At the end of each day I will vacuum my office with a vacuum containing a HEPA filter. 

 

Massage Treatments:

At this time I will not be providing face massage, however scalp massage is ok. Hot stone massage and foot scrub treatments will also be postponed at this time.

 

Post Session Protocol:

Payment: Currently for your convenience I accept no contact payment through Venmo or Paypal. I also currently accept cash payments. As different methods of payment become available I will provide updates. 

Both the client and practitioner agree to notify each other in the event that either one develops any illness or Covid-19 like symptoms.

As always if your massage was helpful I would love to hear about it!

 

Payment:

I currently accept cash, Venmo @kristendbreaux, and Paypal  kristenbreaux@gmail.com. Further options for payment methods will be updated as soon as they can be re implemented.
