Our COVID-19 Protocol

Seattle Massage Pro has a fully vaccinated staff and no cases of exposure at our facility.  Schedule online to reserve your spot now.

The list will be updated as necessary, so check back, but as of right now, these are the current changes made to protocol on VaccinationsMasks, Arrival Time and Procedure, Facility Changes, Cleaning Protocol, Massage appointment PPEPayments.

Staff and Massage Therapist Vaccinations

Seattle Massage Pro clinic support staff and massage therapists are fully vaccinated for COVID-19.  Despite our 100% vaccination status, we continue to take client risk seriously and maintain all cleaning and PPE protocol, such as frequent sanitation and mask wearing.  Outside of the facility, the Seattle Massage Pro staff has made a commitment to our clients and public safety by strictly following the CDC social gathering and PPE guidelines.

Masks

We have cloth masks for purchase and also have backup disposable masks for clients. Please bring your own mask and wear it throughout the time in the facility, including during your massage. You may remove it inside the sauna and float rooms, but in any space shared with another person, such as a massage room, main lobby area, and hallways, please keep it on. We thank you for your understanding.

Arrival Time

We request that you arrive at the start time to your appointment, and not more than 5 minutes before, to avoid crowding the facility.  A sanitized plastic bin will be provided for you to keep your personal belongings in throughout your appointment so they aren’t placed on surfaces.

Client Screening

Every appointment requires a COVID-19 screening. This includes a temperature check and questionnaire. As of March 2021, the CDC has provided new guidelines based on vaccination status. This has altered our screening somewhat.

-Clients may not enter the facility IF they’ve tested positive for COVID-19 or have had untested covid-like symptoms in the past 14 days.

-Unvaccinated clients may not use our facility IF they have had a known exposure in the past 14 days, have had untested covid-like symptoms in the past 14 days, tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, or if they did not follow current CDC social gathering guidelines for unvaccinated people in the past 14 days.

-Fully vaccinated clients have looser restrictions than those without full vaccination. Fully vaccinated clients do not need to quarantine or test IF they’ve had a known exposure.  However, fully vaccinated people experiencing untested covid-like symptoms in the past 14 days may not use the facility. Our fully vaccinated clients are expected to follow current CDC social gathering guidelines for fully vaccinated people.

Our 24-hour cancellation policy is still enforced if the client fails to meet these requirements at the time of the scheduled appointment.

Facility Changes

All rooms have air purifiers.  Both massage rooms, the lobby, the bathroom, and the sauna changing room have HEPA and UV-sanitizing air filters that are running all day long and are maintained regularly.  

Cleaning Protocol

We are always meticulous with our cleaning, but it has been stepped up with response to Covid-19, and may continue to change as new information is discovered every day on efficacy and processes. Our typical disinfectant is hydrogen peroxide for the equipment (tables, face cradles, bolsters, pillows, tools), soap and hot water on the lotion/oil bottles, and sheets and towels washed in hot water with detergent. Additionally, all knobs, handles, and faucets are wiped with alcohol wipes after every client or staff member has touched them. Just as before Covid protocol, every client is provided with a completely fresh and clean set of sheets, including the top blanket. We have added the air sanitizer and increased frequency of washing rugs.

Massage PPE

During the massage, all clients are required to wear a mask. Massage therapists wear a N-95 mask at all times during the appointment. When the client is face-up, therapists may also decide to wear a face shield at their discretion or upon request from a client. Massage therapists change either their clothing or apron to a fresh set or apron between each session. We believe this extra protocol, going above and beyond safety standards, is best for our clients and staff.

Thank you for patience and understanding in implementing these temporary changes. We REALLY can’t wait to see you all soon! This information is likely to change as conditions and requests from officials change. Thank you for your patience in working through this time and being flexible. Stay safe!
