Health and hygiene steps during COVID-19

Greetings Dear Ones,
You may be wondering if seeing a practitioner such as myself is a good idea during this time. Since massage is great for anxiety and boosting the immune system, I recommend continuing your visits, while keeping everything I have written below in mind. 
While nobody can guarantee a total protection from this illness, I would like to share how I am minimizing the risks during your visit, in four stages.

What I have always done:
I thoroughly wash my hands before, in the middle of and after every massage session. Before and after 50 Shades  and Nuru sessions. 
All toys and tools of the trade, including hot stones, my Nuru pit and BDSM toys, are strictly soaked and/or cleaned with Barbicide along with high end toy cleaner. Leathers are cleaned with tea tree oil, a leather cleaner and Lysol spritz.
Face cradle, arm rest, massage tools including everything I touch, all wiped down with Clorox wipes after every session.
All towels and sheets are washed and disinfected at an industrial laundry facility.
Face cradle covers are diposable.
Toilet wiped down with Clorox wipes throughout the day.

What I do now:
Wipe down all door handles, table, shower and sink faucets and soap dispensers with Clorox wipes after every guest.
Replaced cloth hand towels with soft paper disposable hand towels.
Paper cups for mouthwash are now by request only, so they aren't sitting out collecting germs.
Lysol, Lysol, Lysol.
Gloves available upon request.


What I am doing to protect my own health:
All guests must wash hands and face upon arrival, before hugs or any physical contact.
Social distancing. I am taking a break from hot yoga, bars, restaurants, and dance classes. Luckily, I am very close to amazing hiking trails! 
Limiting my client intake to 6 guests a week. Please consider booking a 90min or 2 hr session to help me keep this up!
Staying hydrated and amping up my immune boosting practices.
Hand wash, hand wash, hand wash.

What you can do:
If you have visited Mainland China, Italy, Iran or South Korea recently, do not come visit me for two weeks since your arrival home.
If you are experiencing any symptoms, such as cough, headache or fever, do not come visit me.
If you are feeling ill, you may cancel without a cancellation fee, even last minute.
Remove your shoes immediately upon arriving.
Remove your jacket or over clothes and hang up in bathroom right away, even before washing your hands and face.
Stay hydrated.
Wash hands, wash hands, wash hands. :)
