Sacred Sole Massage & Bodywork has always followed a strict sanitation protocol to prepare for each client visit. In response to COVID19, a few NEW measures have been added.
NEW! Face Masks
Theresa will wear a face mask throughout your full session. During your massage, you won’t need to wear a mask while you are lying face-down. Your massage table is dressed with specially-designed fabric “breathe-easy” massage cradle covers which offer the same protection as a mask and are much more comfortable. While you are lying on your back, Theresa will provide a new N95 mask which is cone-shaped for more comfort during your session.
AS ALWAYS! Disinfectant Products
Ultracare Disinfectant Concentrate and CaviCide CaviWipes have been used to clean at Sacred Sole for years. The EPA has recommended some products, including Ultracare and CaviCide, that are effective against viruses including Covid.
All high-touch surfaces, as well as the floor, will be disinfected between each client. Each massage table has a vinyl barrier between the fitted sheet and the table warmer which will be disinfected between each client. Each face cradle also has a vinyl barrier and will be disinfected between each client, including the lever and frame. The window coverings will also be sprayed between clients and taken down to be laundered daily.
NEW! Ultra Violet light (UV-C) Room Disinfecting
UVlizer uses ultra violet light (UV-C in particular) and ozone molecules, two things that are naturally present in nature, to eradicate pathogens, germs, and viruses. According to the CDC: "The entire UV spectrum can kill or inactivate many microorganisms, but UVC energy provides the most germicidal effect." The UVlizer will cycle daily.
NEW! Air Purifier and Improved Cross Ventilation
Do air purifiers kill viruses? To a degree...Yes. An air purifier equipped with a True HEPA-rated filter can technically capture a portion of airborne virus-sized particles. Once trapped, viruses cannot multiply on their own or remain infectious for long. But NO air purifier can completely protect you from a virus. The Alen commercial air purifier was chosen as a tool in addition to the fresh air window fan to maximize ventilation exchange throughout the treatment room.
AS ALWAYS! Ultra Violet Hot Towel Cabinet
The towel warmer has a UV light to sanitize towels.
AS ALWAYS! Laundry
All linens, including the sheets, cover blanket, and all towels will be washed with hot water and “sanitizing” cycle. Lysol or Clorox Laundry Sanitizer is added along with regular detergent. Theresa will also change her clothes between clients, wearing a fresh uniform for each session. The window coverings will be taken down and washed daily.
AS ALWAYS! Theresa will continue to maintain impeccable hand and feet hygiene which includes washing with soap and water up to the elbows, or up to the ankles, before and after each session. Fingernails and toenails are always clipped and filed as short as possible, and a soft bristle washing brush or washcloth. If you prefer, Theresa will wear tight fitting gloves throughout your session. The massage will feel very much the same.
Questions about sanitation are ALWAYS welcome.
