Massage Therapy Re-Opens in Phase III Yaaaah!! :-)

Greetings from Therapeutic Bodyworks.

It’s true! Phase III will mark the re-opening for Therapeutic Bodyworks!! The date should be June 16 or 17th, if all the metrics that are being tracked stay on track. We have been Blessed that our numbers have been slowly getting lower. #NY Smart, #NY Tough!

When last we left the story of “How to get a massage in the time of Covid-19”, I believe I had just gotten you in the door! One thing I had not mentioned is that I will quickly review the information from the night before and take a no-touch, forehead temperature before you come in. So NOW you’re in the door!

You may  immediately notice a more spartan look to the reception area and the massage room. It is recommended that to make the cleaning processes easier to accomplish that all objects that can’t be wiped down or spayed down be removed from the room. You will also notice the placement of various signs reminding you of Respiratory Etiquette, Hand Washing and Social Distancing. These are required by the state. There will still be music during the session, so hopefully that will help to retain some normalcy for your experience. There will be hand sanitizer in the room for your use before you get on the table. You will need to keep your mask on (while face up) during the session, so scalp and forehead massage are still possible, but not the rest of you face. I will be wearing a mask and protective eye wear as well. Gloves are only required if I have a break in my skin or you have a break in yours. (This has always been the case.) At the end of the session I will have you use the hand sanitizer again before  handling the door knob to exit the room. Hopefully you were able to pay for the session on-line at the time that you scheduled it. If not, we would take care of it either before or after the session, your choice.

You will notice that I have adjusted my pricing ($5 per service provided, unless already purchased). This is to offset the costs involved with meeting the NYS mandated requirements to reopen. As I had mentioned in the prior email. I will reopen the scheduling app. on the day Phase III begins. Where I had thought I might need up to a month to get things in place in the office, I think I’m in better shape than that, and am currently shooting for 2 weeks! That would put my office re-open date at July 1st, so available appointment dates will proceed from there. A new month, a fresh start!! I think that’s probably enough to absorb for this email! I will reach out at least one more time before reopening to tie up any other loose ends that come up. So until then….Take Care….Be Well ……and I hope to see you soon.
