On June 11, 2022 the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario and our local public health units announced that clients and health care providers are no longer required to wear a masks during treatments.
Clients who wish to continue wearing a mask can simply bring and wear a mask – either for the entirety of the session, or any part of it. Although RMTs are also no longer required to wear masks, I will continue to use them with all clients who are also doing so, and for any and all unmasked clients who communicate their preference that I wear a mask while treating.
Before attending your massage appointment please ensure that you have no COVID-19 or current cold/flu symptoms. RMTs cannot provide treatment to anyone with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 until those symptoms have subsided, OR to anyone who is supposed to be self-isolating at the time of their scheduled appointment. Please reach out or go online to reschedule to a later date if this applies to you.
When a circumstance suggests a cause for concern, I may complete a risk assessment before treating and, in some cases, may increase my level of personal protective equipment and require that high-risk clients wear a mask during treatment as well.
The following protocols remain in effect:
- In accordance with public health recommendations and guidelines I have been fully vaccinated and boosted with the Covid-19 vaccine.
- I am continuing to self- screen twice per week as an added assurance and precaution for myself and my clients.
- My treatment room is well ventilated and climate controlled. Air purification units are also in operation during appointment times.
- There will be no charge for last minute cancellations if you are feeling ill or unwell.
I very much appreciate my client’s ongoing loyalty and patience as we work through this transition period together. I am confident that with open communication we will continue to manage the ever-changing environment of providing safe healthcare services. If you have any questions or concerns I encourage you to reach out to me as early as possible so that we may discuss your visit. I remain committed to your health and safety and look forward to seeing you soon.
