COVID-19 Safety
plus cold & flu safety 
& other policies

Updated Nov 2022

I hold your and my health & wellbeing in the highest regard. In addition to being fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19, I continue to implement a number of measures to reduce transmission risk of COVID-19, as well as colds and flu.

Preparing for your appointment

*Please reschedule your massage if you feel unwell at all (including with the common cold), are experiencing unusual symptoms with no clear explanation, are positive for COVID-19, or have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 5 days*

 

Bodywork is not recommended when you are sick, as it can exacerbate symptoms, as well as spread illness to your LMT and clients coming in after you. 

While I appreciate as much advanced notice as possible, you will not be charged a late cancellation fee if you cancel due to illness. Missing your appointment without contacting me may result in witholding a refund or having to pay up front for future sessions. 

When you arrive

A properly fitted mask is required for all clients upon entry to the building and during your massage. High quality masks such as an N95, KN95, or KF94 are highly recommended. 

Additional protocols I am implementing include: 

  • 30 minutes between clients for adequate sanitation and aeration

  • Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces with an EPA-approved non-toxic disinfectant.  

  • I will wear an N95 mask throughout your appointment. 

  • Two air purifiers with HEPA filters running throughout your appointment.

  • As always, maintain proper hand washing hygiene between clients

  • As always, I will reschedule your appointment if I am unwell. 

 

Additional policies at Iara Massage & Bodywork: 

  • First-time clients are required to pre-pay for their appointments. 

  • For non-emergent rescheduling or cancellations not related to illness or COVID-precautions, please give 24hrs notice to avoid penalties. 

  • No-show's without contacting me will result in a full charge of the session or needing to pre-pay for future sessions. 

Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns, or comments.
