We are making sure that our team is empowered with he knowledge and training to continue providing quality services while meeting our enhanced health and safety protocols.

  • In addition to our regular daily cleaning procedures, we are adding frequent cleanings of high-touch surface areas. 

  • We’ve placed EPA registered medical grade disinfecting wipes through the studio, for quick disinfecting access for both staff and client use.

  • We providing nitrile gloves for any customers who choose to use them during training sessions.

  • We are requiring all clients to bring their own water bottles (screw-top only), sweat towels, and exercise mats for use during their sessions. We will all have the required personal fitness items for purchase in the studio.

  • We are requiring all massage clients to have an ear-loop mask or cloth face covering during their massage, while face up. 

  • As always, our therapists practice meticulous hand washing in between each client, and are available to wear protective gloves in sessions upon client request.
