COVID-19 Information

Since the emergence of COVID-19, I have been closely monitoring the information put forth by the CDC, WI health officials and Associated Massage and Bodywork Professionals regarding the safety of practicing, heightened sanitation protocols and how to best keep everyone safe. 

The health and safety of my clients has always been my top priority and I have always followed universal standard precautions and all recommended sanitation protocols. With the emergence of COVID-19 some of these protocols will look as they always have while others have drastically changed. I have outlined below what you can expect moving forward to help keep you safe.

While there are never any guarantees, I feel confident that I can offer a safe environment and experience utilizing the following protocols and guidelines. As the situation continues to evolve and more information continues to become available, these may change.

Heightened Sanitation Protocols as of May 15, 2020

  • Regular CDC compliant hand washing will continue to occur before and after all client contact and after any exposure to potentially contaminated items such as laundry, trash or contaminated surfaces.
  • All table linens, including sheets, face cradle covers, blankets, towels and anything else used during treatment will continue to be changed between each client.
  • All hard surfaces, including the massage table, face cradle, stool, client chair, cabinets, shelves, door knobs etc will be wiped down with Cavicide disinfectant between every client.
  • Bathroom facilities will be wiped down and disinfected after every client.
  • All trash and laundry receptacles in the treatment area will be covered.
  • Self-serve beverages will no longer be available. Please let me know if you would like water so that I may provide it for you.
  • All pre and post session discussion, payment and scheduling will take place in the treatment room. I will escort clients in and out of the building to minimize unnecessary surface contact.
  • Masks will be worn by therapist and client during all interactions.

Session Guidelines as of May 15, 2020

  1. Each of us has a unique situation regarding immune system health and risk factors of not only ourselves but our loved ones. Please base your decision whether to engage my services on your individual situation and comfort level.
  2. If you are unwell, experiencing possible COVID symptoms, have had potential contact with an infected individual, please cancel your appointment.
  3. If in the days following an appointment, you are unwell, experiencing possible COVID symptoms or discover you have had potential contact with an infected individual, please notify me immediately so that I may take necessary precautions to protect myself and my other clients.
  4. For the time being, online booking will NOT be available. Please contact me directly to schedule an appointment.
  5. I will be wearing a mask at all appointments and will require all clients to have masks upon entering the building. You may provide your own mask or I will have disposable masks available for your use.
  6. I will ask that you remain in your vehicle and notify me via text message when you arrive at which point I will greet you outside the entrance to the building to minimize all unnecessary contact with doorknobs and other surfaces.
  7. While not required, I also encourage prepayment for services online via my website to minimize unnecessary contact with surfaces and items.
  8. Bathroom facilities at Alternatives will certainly be available as needed, but I encourage everyone to utilize their home facilities prior to leaving the house to minimize need and unnecessary surface contact. Bathroom surfaces will be wiped down with disinfectant following each use.
