Covid-19 Policies and Procedures for Massage
Michael Weinberg, RMT
As a Registered Massage Therapist in Ontario we are required to successfully complete the Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) Core Competency tests developed by Public Health Ontario.
I screen for COVID-19 symptoms daily before I will be accepting appointments which includes taking my temperature daily.
Before and after your treatment, I will thoroughly wash my hands, forearms and elbows with soap and water. I will also have Health Canada-approved hand sanitizer on hand (70%-90% alcohol concentration).
I clean all surfaces of the massage table including the face cradle with Health Canada and CMTO approved disinfecting products using a “wipe twice” method on all surfaces (wipe once to clean, wipe again to disinfect).
During your treatment, I will wear a surgical/procedure mask (not cloth) at all times.
I have been trained on safely using and disposing of PPE.
For each treatment session, I am required to keep detailed records of the infection prevention and control practices I have followed.
What I ask of Clients:
complete Covid 19 screening questionnaire upon receipt after booking your appointment
Provide a sink and soap for me to wash up pre and post treatment
Wear a clean mask throughout your treatment.
Wash or sanitize your hands prior to treatment
I recommend that you shower before your treatment
Keep children and others 2m away from the massage table and my belongings to ensure safe physical distancing.
Please do not book a session if:
You are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19
You or anyone in your household have travelled internationally within the last 14 days
You have experienced any symptoms within the past 14 days
Anyone in your household has knowingly been exposed
