We are doing our best to ensure our practice setting mitigates the risks as much as possible, including:

  • Our RMTs use the BC COVID-19 self-assessment tool.
  • Our RMTs will not provide in-person care and will stay home if they are exhibiting signs of communicable disease or if they are waiting for a COVID test result.
  • Our RMTs will do our best to stagger appointment times to avoid congestion in the reception area.
  • We will allow extra time between patients for enhanced cleaning.
  • Our cancellation policy is not currently in effect.
Enhanced Cleaning:
  • As is our usual practice, our RMTs will wash their hands thoroughly before and after each treatment.
  • The treatment table and adjustment levers are sanitized immediately after each treatment. This includes the face cradle, arm rests, your therapist’s stool, and lotion bottle(s).
  • All high-touch surfaces will be disinfected frequently. This includes:
    • light switches, phones, tablets, chairs, stools, desktop surfaces
    • handles: doors, cabinets, faucets, fridge, microwave
    • electronic devices, keyboards and mice
    • arm rests of chairs
    • water cooler
  • Linens are always single-use only and are laundered in hot soapy water.
