COVID-19

My deepest concern is to keep you protected and safe; however, even with all of my mitigation efforts, bodywork involves maintained touch and close physical proximity over an extended period of time, there may be an elevated risk of disease transmission, including COVID-19. If you do not feel comfortable with this risk, please contact me to cancel/reschedule. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (907)795-6545. 

 

Face coverings are required at all times in the clinic and during your session. I will also be wearing a face mask. 

Screening Questions: 

If you answer yes to any of these questions we will need to reschedule your session. Please call 907-795-6545 to reschedule. Thank you for your honesty and understanding.
