Open for business! Please read updated procedures below

Posted by with Comments Off on Open for business! Please read updated procedures below

Thank you everyone for your patience and support during the past few months!

I am happy to let you know that massage therapy professionals can again fully provide services as of today under the governor’s revised mandates. I am back open for all services (except hot stone massage for the time being).

My online scheduler is immediately available for bookings or you can contact me via email or text.

As I provide these sessions, the following apply:

  • I will continue to sanitize all common surfaces in the office, and all equipment between appointments according to CDC and other health agency guidelines. The listing of the minimum required state guidelines will be available in my office and will be exceeded in my practice.
  • Clients will be rescheduled if they have ANY cold/flu symptoms, including fever or if, in the past 14 days, they have been in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or waiting for test results for COVID-19.
  • I will check my temperature before beginning work each day and monitor it throughout the day.
  • I will wear a mask during sessions (a new mask for each session) and ask that clients wear protective face coverings upon arrival and while positioned face up on the table during services.
  • Clients need to sign a COVID-19 Updated Policies, Client Intake and Consent Form. (This is available by clicking on the above link, and should be completed and brought to the first appointment upon re-opening.)
  • I am asking clients to keep as much distance as possible from other each other between appointments. (See additional information on the updated intake and consent form.) Please only enter the office a few minutes before your scheduled start time with hands freshly washed.
  • If you have any questions about what I am doing to ensure the health and safety of my clients, call, email or text me.

Amid the ongoing uncertainty of this time, I hope this will alleviate any stress and hesitation you have about an upcoming appointment. If you need to reschedule for whatever reason, and especially if you are not feeling well, I request for you to please contact me as soon as possible to cancel and/or reschedule. As always, there will be no penalties for late cancellations due to health-related concerns.

Looking forward to seeing you all for appointments soon!

Booking requirements and procedures for May

Posted by with Comments Off on Booking requirements and procedures for May

Unfortunately, massage establishments were not included in the governor’s Phase 1 re-openings today, so I cannot yet open fully. “Public swimming pools, bars, gyms, cosmetology salons, massage establishments, interactive amusement venues, such as bowling alleys and video arcades, and tattoo and piercing studios will remain closed through Phase I.”

HOWEVER, last week, we did receive word from the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation clarifying massage therapy permissions under the current closures. “A massage therapist may only provide massage services if it is medically necessary. This determination must be made by the client’s physician or chiropractor. Massage therapists may not provide massage services for general wellness or other non-medical necessity reasons.”

So, until the Phase 2 openings in mid-May, I will need clients to provide me with a copy of a prescription for therapeutic/medical massage from a physician or chiropractor deeming it necessary in order to provide the service. This is treatment code (CPT code) 97124.

Because of this, I will need to close online booking availability until May 18 and ask that clients contact me to confirm they can provide this needed documentation in order to book/keep sessions. Contact me as early as possible via phone, text or email to book medically necessary massage services prior to May 18. Rescheduling current bookings or booking for May 18 and beyond can still be done online.

As I provide these sessions, and when I open fully when allowed, the following apply:

  • I will continue to sanitize all common surfaces in the office, and all equipment between appointments according to CDC and other health agency guidelines.
  • Clients will be rescheduled if they have ANY cold/flu symptoms, including fever.
  • I will check my temperature before beginning work each day and monitor it throughout the day.
  • I will wear a mask during sessions.
  • Clients will be asked to provide information about their recent health and exposure to anyone displaying symptoms before each session and sign a COVID-19 Updated Policies, Client Intake and Consent Form. (This should be completed and brought to the first appointment upon re-opening or if coming in before for a medically necessary service.)
  • I am asking clients to keep as much distance as possible from other each other between appointments. (See additional information on the updated intake and consent form.)
  • If you have any questions about what I am doing to ensure the health and safety of my clients, give me a call!

Amid the ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19, I hope this will alleviate any stress and hesitation you have about an upcoming appointment. If you need to reschedule for whatever reason, and especially if you are not feeling well, I request for you to please contact me as soon as possible to cancel and/or reschedule. As always, there will be no penalties for late cancellations due to health-related concerns.

Thank you for your support and patience in this unusual time!

All the best,

Rochelle

Thanks to all my clients for another wonderful year! I kept busy professionally and on the home front with my first year of parenting, and I thank you all for your support in both endeavors.

I wanted to remind everyone about planning for specific appointment days and times well in advance to secure your preferred spot. Online booking is available 24/7 or you can set up recurring appointments with me at your next scheduled visit.

As always, I am committed to providing you with excellent service and look forward continuing to do so. Thanks for letting me partner with you in your wellness goals.
