                                ***** Updates for Returning Services*****
A big, warm thanks to all our clients who have come for their massage treatments since June 6, 2020. Your loyalty to us is greatly appreciated and the financial support helps us to keep delivering top quality service to you.

We would like to take this opportunity to provide you with some updates to our clinic.

It's Time to Update Your File

We are migrating over to a new booking system and will be providing you with a digital receipt for your insurance claims. We kindly ask you to complete a new Health History Form. Once you book your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email right away with the request for your intake form. Please complete it before you show up your appointment
.
Safety Measures

To keep us all healthy and continual running, we will be adhering to the following safety measures:

Arriving time:

Clients are asked to arrive at the clinic 5 minutes early. These 5 minutes give enough time to change to a surgical mask and complete the payment before going into the treatment area. Please try to come  to our clinic as close 5 minutes to your appointment time as possible to reduce the waiting time at outside.
 

Controlling the front entrance:

The front entrance in the reception area will remain closed. Clients cannot enter the building without an RMT opening the door. This is to limit the number of people in the reception area and to avoid interrupting the disinfection time.

Payment first:

As you know, our treatment area is at second floor. Getting the payment done first will help us to create an one-way flow to prevent the contact with other clients.

Managing your shoes:

The bottom of the outdoor shoes is a big carrier for contacting the virus and less chance to clean. Before you enter our treatment area, we will offer you a plastic bag to hold your outdoor shoes. You will bring this plastic bag (with your shoes) into your treatment room, and this will help us to keep the entrance of treatment area clean and easy to disinfect after each session.

Masks:

We request our clients wear the surgical mask all the time. Your RMT will guide you to wear the mask in an appropriate way. For both parties safety, please cover your nose and mouth throughout your treatment.

Please be aware that you may get phone calls to stagger your starting time in order to limit the number of people in the reception area.

Mandatory Form to be signed on your each treatment:

A COVID -19 pre-screening form will be coming to you along with your reminder email one day ahead of your appointment time, and this form is mandatory for your treatment on each session. You need to answer all the questions and sign it before you show up your appointment. Our receptionist will call you one day ahead or before your treatment time if we do not see the check mark on your schedule.
