COVID-19 Update

last updated: 6/9/2020

TMB Clients —

While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety and health. 

By its very nature, massage and bodywork requires skin-to-skin contact and you should be familiar with the fact that infection control has always been a top priority for TMB. 

As we navigate life with additional requirements and modify existing measures due to the coronavirus, please help us to support all of our clients by cooperating with some new requirements. 

TMB follows Practice Guidelines recommended by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB), along with infection control recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our clients and staff. 

For example: 

  • When you arrive at the office, we ask that you wait in your vehicle until we wave you in. This ensures that we don’t have too many people in the reception area at one time. 
  • We will greet you at the door and use a no touch thermal temperature screening to confirm that you don’t have a fever. 
  • We’ll ask you if you have developed any symptoms of illness since you made your appointment. If you feel ill on the day of your session, there is no penalty for canceling your appointment. Massage is not advised if you have any symptoms of illness. 
  • Please bring a face mask to use while you are in the building. 
  • We will ask you to sign an informed consent form that states, “I understand that close contact with people increases the risk of infection from COVID-19. By signing this form, I acknowledge that we are aware of the risks involved and give consent to receive massage from this practitioner.” 
  • There is a hand-hygiene station that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find hand sanitizer in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed. 

We look forward to seeing you again as we begin to reopen on Friday, June 12th. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every client, safe at TMB.
