CLOSED through February 15, or later, due to the rise in COVID-19 cases.
Reopening will be dependent on the COVID numbers in Allegheny County. I will monitor them and reach out to current clients and those on my waiting list as I get ready to reopen. You may link to a waitlist request form here.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms or exposure, late cancellation and rescheduling fees will not apply. Please see my office policies for more information
Your safety, and mine, are very important to me so I've made many changes.
All clients will be asked to fill out new health intake forms electronically.
One day prior to your appointment, I will email you a short COVID-19 questionnaire and liability waiver asking about your recent health and exposure. I will text you to remind you that I've sent it and am expecting a reply. Please return that to me by 8am on the day of your appointment.
* My new routine will require 45 to 60 minutes of time between one client's departure and the next client's arrival, mostly to allow for the fogging and the air filtration. Because of this additional time commitment, I will only be seeing 3 clients per day and that will affect how soon you can get in for an appointment. Please be patient as I adjust to my new schedule, knowing that I am working to keep us both as safe as possible.
Masks are required for both of us at all times. If you forget yours, I can meet you in the parking lot with a disposable surgical mask.
Erring on the side of caution:
Cinnamon bark oil, thyme, lemongrass, oregano, tea tree, clove, rosemary, basil, lemon, orange, bergamot, and eucalyptus essential oils all have anti-viral properties. (PubMed and the NIH websites have lots of studies, so you don't just have to take my word for it.) I'll be diffusing a combination of organic antiviral essential oils in my office until further notice. All these oils are safe for use in a diffuser regardless of pre-existing health conditions. (Yes, pregnancy too.)
Allergy sufferer? Essential oils do not contain the plant proteins that cause histamine responses. Therefore, I'm not expecting anyone to have allergic reactions. Case in point: I'm horribly allergic to lavender as a plant and as an ingredient in many products but have no reaction to it as an essential oil. So far, I've not found an essential oil I'm allergic too and I'm allergic to many lotions, shampoo, perfumes, cleaning products, etc.
But please call me to discuss your situation if you expect difficulties with the essential oils. Perhaps you could see if the "plant protein" theory is accurate for you? or plan on an antihistamine?
