In order to keep everyone as safe as possible all therapists have received infection prevention training. The following procedures have been implemented:
* Vaccinated or not; if you have a fever, a cold, cold symptoms, respiratory difficulty including coughing or have been exposed to someone with any of these symptoms, please reschedule your appointment. If you have tested positive or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last two weeks, please reschedule your appointment.
* New clients will complete the intake and consent forms as done previously. All clients; will be asked to complete a health addendum per NC state.
* As of May 17, 2021 the CDC has made face masks optional for therapist. For the greatest amount of protection for all; our therapist will continue to wear masks in public spaces and in the treatment room.
* While moving around the building, clients are encouraged to wear face masks but it is not mandatory. The therapist will have a mask on during all interaction.
* The treatment room is disinfected and where possible; sterilized after each client. Sterilizing kills all bio-organisms. It is a higher degree of cleaning than disinfecting. All hard surfaces will be sterilized including inside/outside door knob handles. As always, the sheets and face cradle cover is changed after each client. Soft surfaces will be disinfected; these include the massage table, face cradle and chairs.
* The break between appointments will increase from 15 to 30 minutes to decrease the likelihood of clients over lapping. This time will also be used to clean the treatment room as described above.
* The chairs in the waiting area are 6 feet apart.
* The bathrooms are down the hall from the waiting area. The best procedure to minimize exposure to all germs is hand washing! You are encouraged to wash your hands before and after your appointment.
* Essential oil infused hand sanitizer will be available in the treatment room.
* The treatment room has an air freshener to quickly reduce the chemicals used in the sterilizing/disinfecting process as well as improving the scent in the air.
