Safety Protocols

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
