Covid-19 Policies

Hi There!

Thank you for choosing Knead to Run Massage

I am currently only accepting clients that have been fully vaccinated and boostered. Proof of vaccination will be required for all new clients and returning clients if this is your first appointment since January 2022. 

 

I have created these policies to ensure as safe a massage environment as possible for EVERY client as part of my commitment to provide an elevated standard of care.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BEFORE BOOKING YOUR APPOINTMENT

First order of business: MASKS

Masks must be worn in all common areas such as waiting rooms and hallways. Clients may remove their masks if they wish once inside the treatment room. I will continue to wear a mask due to the inability to physically distance myself during a massage.

Clients may wear a homemade cloth mask provided it fits properly. This means that there are no gaps on the sides or above the nose or below the chin. If you do not have a properly fitted mask, I will be happy to provide you with a clean surgical mask. 

SCHEDULING POLICY - **If you have traveled outside the sate, been in a large group setting such as a concert, sports event, or other large public gatherings where social distancing and/or mask-wearing was not observed either indoors or outside, please wait 10 days to schedule your appointment. 

Sessions booked online must be reserved with a valid credit card

New clients or clients must complete a health intake form which will be attached to your booking confirmation email. If you do not complete the required forms, your session will have to be rescheduled. 

ARRIVAL POLICY -

Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your appointment. The waiting area is open and you may come in and have a seat. I will come and greet you prior to your scheduled appointment time

We ask that you wash your hands upon entering the building and before entering the treatment room. 

Modified Cancellation Policy - I will cancel or reschedule your appointment without penalty if you present with a fever upon arrival, or if you develop symptoms of illness within 72 hours or up to the day of your appointment. Please call me immediately if you are feeling unwell to reschedule your appointment. 

SESSION POLICY -

I will wear a mask through the entire session. I will gloves if I have a cut on my hand or cuticles. 

TOUCHLESS PAYMENT/RESCHEDULING  POLICY- It is preferred that you pre-pay for your appointment upon booking, however, if you choose to pay at time of service, a credit or debit card is preferred.

 

Rebooking will be done in the treatment room prior to leaving the collective.  

POST SESSION FOLLOW UP POLICY- Please contact me if you test positive for Covid-19 within 10 days of your massage session at (603) 370-9193

COVID-19 EXPOSURE ACTION POLICY - In the event I suspect I have been exposed to Covid-19, I will cancel all appointments and self-isolate until I can obtain testing and confirm a negative diagnosis. 

In the event a client calls to inform me they have tested positive within 14 days of their massage session, I will contact all clients from that time period and self isolate until I can obtain testing and confirm a negative diagnosis. 

In the event I test positive for Covid-19, I will inform all clients from the previous 14 days, immediately cancel all appointments and self isolate until I am cleared of infection.
