Covid-19 Policies and Procedures

Below are the new procedures for Bodyography.

We have a large hepa air filter running 24 hours a day and add a smaller hepa air filter whenever anyone is in the office.

Our Massage Therapists and Reiki practitioner will be wearing a mask, face shield, and apron during your session. Our acupuncturist will be wearing a mask (and a face shield, if the client needs to temporarily remove their mask for the acupuncturist to access points) and will maintain at least 6′ of distance when she isn’t applying treatment.  All therapists will maintain 6′ of distance from clients when not in the treatment room.

“Covid-19 Health Information and Liability Release” form (see “Forms” under “About”): clients must complete and return this form the day before their appointment.  Clients may email the answers (e.g., #1 No, #2, No, etc.) if they are unable to return the completed form by email.

Client intakes – whenever possible, we ask that you complete and return our Massage Client Intake Form or Reiki Client Intake Form before you come in for your appointment.  (Acupuncture intakes are done verbally by phone, videoconference,  or in person.)

Clients will be required to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth for the entire time they are at Bodyography.  Please bring your own mask.  We will have masks for those who forget theirs or if your mask is too loose-fitting.

When you arrive at Bodyography, please call us from your car (if you drove) or from outside (if you walked or biked) to let us know you have arrived.  The therapist will let you know when you can come in and will ask whether anything has changed since the intake interview.

When you arrive at the door, your therapist will take your temperature.  If your temperature is 100° F or above, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment.

Once you enter Bodyography, you will be asked to use hand sanitizer or wash your hands at the sink.

You will sign the “Covid-19 Health Information and Liability Release” form that you have previously completed. (We will have a copy for you to sign, or you may print the document at home, sign it there, and bring it in with you, if you prefer.)

You will enter the treatment room to prepare for the massage.  Clients are asked to bring as few personal possessions as possible and put them all on the client chair during the massage. (Shoes can go on the floor under the chair.)

After the session, please use the hand sanitizer provided in the treatment room before you leave the room.

While at Bodyography, please maintain at least 6′ of distance from others whenever possible.  We won’t be giving out cups of water, since we want everyone to stay masked, but you will be allowed to fill your water bottle at our sink, if necessary, so you could have some water immediately upon exiting Bodyography.

In the event that we learn someone is diagnosed with covid-19 within 14 days of being at Bodyography, we will close for at least 2 days for deep cleaning and will cooperate with the Board of Health on contact tracing.

Please contact us ([email protected]) if you have any questions or concerns.
