Covid-19 Protocol

UPDATE March 16: Sessions will be suspended until further notice. I will contact people to rebook.

I take all viruses and flues very seriously. In 2004, after contracting a virus, I was left with long lasting vertigo complications. Since major surgery in 2018, I have noticed I am not as resistant to flues and viruses as I used to be, and they can circle back around several times, lasting much longer. Last year when I travelled to Europe, I caught a virus on the plane that took 2 months to resolve. I have a sensitive immune and nervous system, which means I must take extra precaution for myself and for you.

My future protocol reflexology: I check in ahead of session to see how the subjects are feeling. If anyone is feeling unwell, I reschedule and have done so several times as of lately. I am also enforcing hand-washing protocols when people enter our unit and have disinfectant wipes for all surfaces. I have masks and gloves on hand for every session.

I have also hoarded 10 packages of toilet paper, just in case (joke).

My traveling kit consists of three types of masks: Humidiflyer, Virus Shield and surgical masks. I will also carry hand sanitizer and gloves.

Please familiarize yourself with the following information.

Those at risk:

  • Who are aged 65 and older.
  • With compromised immune systems.
  • With pre-existing medical conditions.

You can help flatten the curve by:

  • Self-isolating.
  • Avoiding touching your face.
  • Washing your hand thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
  • Trying to keep a distance of 1.8 metres from other people when in public.
  • Avoiding large crowd gatherings.
  • Limiting travel.
  • Working from home if you can.

Things to look out for:

  • Fever.
  • Coughing.
  • Difficulty breathing.
  • Pneumonia (which would be confirmed via a chest X-ray).
  • Symptoms could present between 2 and 14 days after exposure. Not everyone with COVID-9 will have symptoms, and some will only experience mild discomfort.
