What Steps Are We Taking To Protect Our Employees and Patients :
We want to make sure that if you are choosing to receive care at our clinic during this time of heightened exposure risk we are taking the necessary precautions to keep our clinic sanitized as well as minimizing social distance when at all possible. Here are a few of our safety measures to ensure employee and patient wellbeing at this time:
- We have decreased the presence of office staff in main area as well as all back offices to ensure a 6 foot social distancing, as well as our front desk staff work through the glass barrier windows for check in and check out.
- Our electronic payments require no signature or patient handled iPad interaction, we handle it all on our end for you, so no unnecessary exposure.
- We have enacted a mobile check-in option by simply texting our front office at 253-970-8256 when you park your car. You may wait in your vehicle or outside until your Therapist is ready for your session when you are promptly texted to enter the building. Our waiting room remains open and you are always welcome, at a proper social distance of course. : )
- We use fresh linens, towels, face cradle covers, pillow cases for each patient. Always have, and always will.
- Vinyl barriers cases are on tables and pillows for easy sanitization between patients.
- We sanitize each treatment room with 70% isopropyl alcohol in between each session. This includes treatment table, face cradle, door and handles, bolsters, clothing hooks, chair, floor, counter surfaces, all treatment tools and bottles. This may take a few extra minutes, and we appreciate your understanding if the Therapist is running a few minutes behind.
- We sanitize the complete office with 70% isopropyl alcohol at open and close as well as 4-5 times per day. This includes bathrooms, all check in and check out counters, our retail areas, all seating, interior and exterior doors and light switches in common areas.
- We have 3 UV & Ozone generators which are deployed nightly in the massage hallway, main hallway/waiting area and office hallway/desk area.
- We do 2 deep cleans during the weekdays using bleach after hours, including the floors in all walkways and common areas. Floors in treatment rooms are sanitized between each patient as well as nightly and at these bleach cleans.
- On Saturday after we close for the day, we start a 24 hour complete disinfecting process using commercial grade virucidal. We pull every item in the clinic which can be sanitized and washed outside and spray with disinfecting agent, let sit, rinse, then wash with warm soapy water, rinse again, and dry. We go room by room sanitizing every surface or item with alcohol, let sit to dry, and then wash with soap and water. We again mop floors with soap and water as well as a finishing bleach mop.
