Frequently Asked Questions

COVID-19 FAQs

What are you doing for safety measures?

Before COVID-19 we have always had an extremely clean environment. We practiced regular sanitizing of door handles, door jams, light switches, hangers, clients surfaces in treatment rooms, bathroom surfaces and lobby surfaces. We have always had salt rocks in each room that purifies the air by drawing in moisture as well as antimicrobial essential oils that further purify the air. We have added touchless thermometers to take temperatures as clients arrive, intake questionnaires for COVID-19 related symptoms, all staff and clients are required to wear face masks, spacious seating in the lobby as well as more space in between appointments for less lobby traffic and time for cleaning. All the rooms are also now equipped with HEPA filters, optional massage cream with antibacterial and antiviral essential oil blends to add to your session if wanted.

We highly recommend an Epson salt bath after your massage. It is beneficial to help move out toxins and can help with soreness after a deep tissue massage.

How often should I get a massage?

That will depend on your body and needs. If you are in severe pain, multiple sessions in a week could be helpful to create relief and relaxation. For maintenance and general health and wellness we recommend a massage very 2-4 weeks. If you are unsure, ask your therapist!

When can I NOT get a massage?

A massage is not ideal for anyone who has a flu or cold. Massage therapy can actually make you more sick, even though it may sound like nice self-care when you are sick. We recommend rest, Epson salt baths and lots of fluids then scheduling a massage for when you are feeling better!
