How We’re Dealing With COVID in 2021

We are OPEN and we are so thankful to remain open during this second lockdown imposed on Ontario as of Boxing Day 2020.

2021, the year we have all been looking forward to. A fresh start and hopefully a healthy and safe year. As much as I would have preferred to start this year off, without addressing COVID-19 I am going to just one last time.

We are OPEN and we are so thankful to remain open during this second lockdown imposed on Ontario as of Boxing Day 2020.

How has the lockdown affected the clinic?

Well, it has not really changed too much for us at the clinic, it is business as usual for the time being. We are always keeping up to date with the current situation in the region as well as the province. The CMTO (College of Massage Therapy Ontario) sends updates to all therapists if there are to be any changes to our policies and procedures.

Why can Massage Therapy continue?

Massage therapy is a Regulated Health Care Profession.

In Ontario, regulated health professions are governed under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) and health profession Acts (i.e., Medicine Act, 1991). This legislative framework establishes health regulatory colleges, which regulate the professions in the public interest. Health regulatory colleges are responsible for ensuring that regulated health professionals provide health services in a safe, professional and ethical manner. This includes, among other things, setting standards of practice for the profession and investigating complaints about members of the profession and, where appropriate, disciplining them.

Savannah Massage Therapy and Wellness clinic policies and procedures are as follows:

  • Pre-screening clients before their visit to the clinic.
  • Second Screening at the time of appointment.
  • PPE (personal protective equipment) worn by all therapists and staff of the clinic.
  • PPE is required for clients while attending their massage appointments at the clinic.
  • Massage Therapy rooms are sanitized between every client.
  • Self-screening for therapists and staff.
  • Intra-oral treatments (TMJ) are not provided for the time being, due to the nature of the treatment.
  • Hot stone and cupping treatments are still available with sanitization after every client.

What about Reflexology?

For the time being, our in clinic reflexologist is unable to provide their services, as reflexology did not fit the guidelines of businesses allowed to function during the lockdown.

Thank you for your continued support and help through these difficult times, we hope to see you soon!
