Prideful Wellness Self Care Center is open and deeply committed to providing the safest possible space for you to come in and receive massage therapy and bodywork. We’re also committed to providing the safest possible safe space for our staff and practitioners to provide these services. We have made many changes as to how we do business based on Occupational Safety Health Act (OSHA) standards and guidelines from ABMP. Our practitioners and clients are at a medium risk exposure to COVID-19 since our practitioners will be in frequent and/or close contact with (i.e., within 6 feet of) other people who may be infected.

All staff, practitioners and clients are required to wear face masks the entire time they are in Prideful Wellness Self Care Center. It can be a homemade face mask. If you arrive without one, we will provide a disposable one to you as long as supplies last.
Temperatures of all clients and practitioners will be taken and recorded as they enter. If a fever is present, they will be asked to leave. Rescheduled appointments will not incur a charge.
If any client or practitioner exhibits flu-like symptoms (runny nose, cough, fever, sore throat), they will be asked to leave until they are symptom free for a minimum of 5 days.
I know you and your therapist will be excited to see each other, please keep talking and socializing to a minimum, since COVID is spread through droplets, increased and prolong talking can put you both at risk, even if you are wearing a mask.
All clients will be asked to sign an additional COVID-19 questionnaire and liability waiver.
Due to State mandates, Prideful Wellness Self Care Center is allowed a maximum of 10 people to be in our space at one time to adhere to social distancing requirements.
All appointments are booked on staggered times with an additional 30 minute break in between each client which allows the therapist to sanitize and not overlap incoming and outgoing clients.
Upgrades to the space to increased safety
Prideful Wellness Self Care Center has installed a Global Plasma Solutions (GPS) needlepoint bipolar air ionization (air purification) system to our HVAC. The GPS-48FC is the only independently tested product which rendered the SARS-Co V-2 virus (COVID-19) 99.4% inactive after only 30 minutes of run time.
All treatment room surfaces, including furniture, are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized in between each session using products and methods approved by the FDA to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses. In addition, we are using UV (with ozone) sterilization lights in all rooms and common areas.
Each table is covered in a new waterproof sheet and, as always, new sheets and blankets are used each session.
Each therapist is using UV sanitizer on their glasses, mask and shirt in between each client.
We are committed to continuing to provide services to our community with the most up-to-date safety precautions always in the forefront. As we learn more about COVID-19, it’s spread, new regulations, and proven methods of prevention, we will continue to adjust our policies and procedures. And, of course, we’ll keep you posted!
