Massage Safety in 2020

Thursday, August 13, 2020

We are all under more stress these days. One great way to deal with stress is getting a massage. Here are the things we are doing to make sure that getting a massage at Move is both safe and relaxing.

We are allowing an additional 15 minutes between appointments to thoroughly clean and disinfect all surfaces and equipment touched or potentially touched by clients and therapists.

All sheets and blankets are washed after each use. Clean linen is used with each client, and is stored in closed cabinets until needed.

Everyone in our facility is required by the City of St Louis to wear a face covering. Massage therapists will wear their masks during the entire time they are speaking with or working on a client. Clients need to wear masks at all times except when face down on the table.

Hand sanitizer is available on entering Move by BJC, and also in each massage room. Therapists are also performing hand hygiene as recommended by the CDC and BJC HealthCare.

Both employees and clients are screened each time they come to the facility. Exceptions are being made to the 24 hour cancellation policy such that clients are not charged for an appointment when calling in to report having a fever or other symptoms of illness or if exposed to someone with COVID-19. We will willingly reschedule appointments for when the client is well or tests negative.

We hope with these reassurances you will feel more comfortable coming back in to Move by BJC for a much-needed massage. Call 314-286-0525 for an appointment.
