General Considerations For Returning To Practice

Massage therapy was designated for inclusion in Phase III of the New York State re-opening program.

CHM is open and accepting appointments!


Appointments must be pre-screened prior to scheduling directly with Neil. Online booking is currently unavailable. New clients are welcome, with priority extended to those with referral.  

Carnegie Hill Massage will be utilizing COVID-19 best practice recommendations from the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), OSHA, guidance from and adherence to New York State and New York City mandates, guidance from the AMTA and related healthcare sectors, and research findings on the virus to stay up to date on adapting necessary protocols for safely work together.

In the absence of a cure, vaccine, effective treatments, or other interventions for COVID-19, there is currently no path back to practice without revised protocols to protect both you as my client and myself as your therapist. Given the close nature of the work I perform, it is critical that I operate in a conservative manner for the well being of all, particularly those clients at higher risk for infection and complications from COVID-19. 

The following pages detail those revisions as they currently stand. While many of these changes may feel awkward and limiting at first, we will work together to make them as seamless as possible.
