All last-minute cancellation/reschedule fees are waived until further notice. As always, if you simply "no show" me (fail to show up without calling me), you will be charged the full session amount.
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, including a COVID-19 Information and Liability Waiver.
One day prior to your appointment, I will email you a short COVID-19 questionnaire 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.
The ambiance will not be the same but the massage will still be effective and relaxing.
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.
I will be leaving 45 to 60 minutes, instead of my usual 30, between clients to allow for this longer process plus all the extra disinfecting. Please be patient as we learn this together.
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?
