COVID-19 and My Practice

Protecting everyone's health and well-being is a priority. I've been fully immunized against COVID-19 and only treat clients who have also been fully vaccinated. I follow the guidance of local and federal health agencies regarding COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. Accordingly:

    • If you've tested positive for or suspect you've been directly exposed to COVID-19, please confirm that you've overcome any infection and subsequently tested negative before booking a session.

Health Screening

I ask that the following be affirmed prior to all appointments :

    • You have been fully immunized against COVID-19.
    • You have not had a fever in the last 24 hours; nor do you now, nor have you recently had any respiratory or flu-like symptoms, shortness of breath, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, chills, muscle aches, rashes, lesions, a cold or other type of infection.

 Other Related Policies and Procedures

    • I neither wear nor require face masks during my sessions with other immunized clients, but they may be worn if preferred.
    • I supply clean linens and towels, sleep masks, filtered drinking water, tissues, hand sanitizer and disposable face masks if desired.
    • I shower and don fresh clothes prior to working, and clients may use my shower for a $10.00 surcharge.
    • I clean the studio frequently and employ high speed fans for ventilation.

Consent To Treatment

You understand that massage therapy work involves maintained touch and close physical proximity over an extended period of time, all of which can elevate the risk of disease transmission, including COVID-19. You're advised to consult a physician if you have any health concerns. In agreeing to receive treatment, you affirm that you are fully immunized against COVID-19, are aware of the risks involved and voluntarily agree to assume those risks, and release and hold me, James Mangani, harmless from any claims related thereto.
