Allow Massage Therapist in California to Reopen NOW
Massage therapists and other personal services are not on the reopening radar of Sonoma County. Those of us in the personal services sector would love to work with the state and our local counties to educate them with the protocols that we already follow, and to come up with any additional protocols they deem necessary to allow these services to reopen with the rest of phase 3. Massage therapists are trained to “do no harm” which covers all levels of a massage.
Here are protocols that are either currently in place or can be implemented for the safety of our clients:
Touchless hand sanitizer
Face masks and protective eye wear for clients
Duvet covers that will be changed per client
Aprons for the therapist to change per each client seen
2 Face masks and face shield for the therapist
UVC lamp to help kill bacteria and other viruses
HEPA Air purifier
Medical grade cleaning products
A thermometer to check the clients temperature
Sterilize any tools that are used such as cups, graston or gua-sha tools
Open windows if possible
New waivers to be signed by each client
Questionnaire to ensure client isn't sick and has not been in contact with anyone that has been sick
Notices, precautions, and appropriate risk signage
WEAR A MASK, WASH YOUR HANDS, DON'T TOUCH YOUR FACE!
