It is my goal to keep all of my clients safe during this challenging time and also be able to provide a relaxing and effective treatment. As we have all heard, this virus sits on surfaces for a long time and sits in the air for 3 hours waiting for the next person to come by and breath. These are the facts that have guided my protocol below.
In office protocol:
To address the virus being airborne for 3 hours-
*Client wears a light, comfortable, cloth mask that I provide or a mask of their own choosing.
*I wear a mask
*While facedown, there will be a cloth headrest hammock under the headrest to catch droplets and the client does not need to wear a mask face down. In addition, if it is more comfortable for the client, they may also take off the mask face up and simply drape the sheet over their nose and mouth to catch droplets and air vapor.
*I have a very high quality hepa filter running as well as the air conditioner and many fans during and in between sessions.
*In between sessions I will leave an hour to air out the room. During this time, I will run an UV lamp for 15 minutes to kill all viruses and bacteria left in the air. Then I will run my high quality hepa filter and fans with the door open for the remaining 45 minutes to insure all ozone is aired out.
To address the virus being active on surfaces-
*I will change all sheets, blankets, pillow covers between every client.
*Dirty linens go in an inclosed, air tight container.
*Clean linens are kept in a air tight container.
*My hands will be washed before and after every client, up to my elbows and I will use hand sanitizer before touching the doorknob when I am done working.
*All surfaces will be sanitized between every single client from the front door, to the bathroom, to my office.
*Clients will put clothing in a plastic bag, after removing them. Shoes will be left outside of the door. I will spray my shoes with alcohol before entering the room.
*I will wear an apron that can be sprayed with alcohol between clients.
