Finally, we have official guidelines from NYS for massage therapy to reopen on Phase 3! These allow us to reopen on July 7, 2020. Madison Healing Arts is following these COVID-19 safety plan to keep our clients and staff as safe as possible and to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
Our COVID-19 Safety Plan
According to CDC, The virus is not known to be transmitted through your skin. So the fact that massage is a touch based modality does not make it inherently more risky than other activities. It is also not known to be transmitted through sweat. The main vector of transmissions is respiratory, through sneezing, coughing, and talking. This is why a six foot social distancing practice is one of the main safety measures recommended. We will be practicing distancing 6 feet as possible at the studio.
At Madison Healing Arts we've implemented all hygienic and disinfection standards:
Each therapists will utilize a Face Shield with PM 2.5 Face Mask or Surgical Mask during treatment
Appointments only, no walk-ins
No hangout at waiting area
Staff wear masks
Staff wear disposable gloves
Employee temperature checks
Disinfection of all surfaces in the venue
Disinfection between clients
Maintain social distancing
Client temperature checks
Staff temperature check and are required to retake Antibody Test every 14 days.
We will be eliminating unnecessary points of contact such as credit cards and cash. We will use the credit cards that you have on file when you book online or we can use 3rd party vendors like Venmo and Zelle. We will ask that you use hand sanitizer right before signing at the end of the checkout process.
Our COVID-19 Safety Plan Needs Everyone to Work Properly
Our new COVID-19 safety measures, as well as any further measures that become recommended will make the likelihood of getting the virus at our studio extremely low. We will be continually monitoring their effectiveness and making decisions to open up further, stay open, or potentially partially or fully close down again, entirely based on science and data.
We hope that all of this information help you stay informed and allows you to make your own decisions about your health and safety. Choosing whether to come to our studio to get a massage is an individual choice based on a number of important factors for each of you. As we all start poking our heads out of full quarantine, we will each have our own needs and risk tolerances.
Our hope is to be able to provide the pain and stress relief that you’ve come to count on at our studio to you in the safest way possible. So that it is there for you whenever you are ready. Please note clients must be agreed to sign COVID-19 Disclaimer Form to receive any service at our studio. Madison Healing Arts is now available on Booksy!
