Client and Disinfection Protocols
Graceful Touch Massage Therapy has always followed HIGH disinfection protocols to prepare for each client visit. Your therapist, Grace, WILL continue to maintain impeccable hand hygiene, which includes washing with soap and water up to the elbows BEFORE and AFTER each session. Client and therapist will be required to reschedule appointments if they are feeling ill, running a fever of 100.4 or above, or believe they have recently been exposed to COVID-19. In response to COVID-19, a few NEW measures have been added.
PLEASE NOTE: IF you are in the HIGH-RISK group for contracting COVID-19 as per the CDC, PLEASE DON’T schedule an appointment. (Older adults, people with asthma, people with HIV/AIDS, chronic lung disease, serious heart conditions, chronic kidney disease, severe obesity, people 65 years or older, liver disease, immunocompromised, people living in senior facilities.)
NEW! Every client WILL wait outside office until Grace calls or texts to come inside.
NEW! Grace along with EACH client WILL wear a facemask (mask will be provided upon entry to the office) the ENTIRE time together INCLUDING on the massage table. NO EXCEPTIONS. Talking will be kept to a minimum DURING the massage for client to focus on slow deliberate breathing with mask on. REMEMBER: YOUR mask protects ME and MY mask protects YOU!
NEW! Every client WILL remove shoes inside door upon entry to office.
NEW! Every client WILL proceed to Cell Phone Sanitizer and PLACE phone inside to sanitize phone-6 minutes. It’s been proven, cell phones are one of the GERMIEST items we own!
