Before You Schedule

Protecting yourself begins before you schedule. Infection rates are on the rise again, and extra diligence is called for.

Quarantine has left our bodies aching, our muscles tight, and we have all been energetically deprived of the therapeutic touch, contact, and unconditional positive regard that make massage therapy so beneficial. 

I have very much missed being able to provide that work for my clients.

As much as I want to see and work with all of you again, its important for you to determine if your need for massage therapy at this time outweighs the risk in receiving it. This necessarily includes considerations like getting to and from your appointment. How will you travel to and from your sessions? How many points of possible contact and exposure can you expect along the way?

If you're immunocompromised by way of age, illness, or treatment for any condition that increases your exposure risk, you will need to consult with your doctor before scheduling.

If you have viral tested positive for Covid-19, you must quarantine for 14 days from the date of the positive test, and provide at least one negative viral test at the end of the quarantine period. You must also receive and provide written clearance from your primary care provider that it is safe for you to receive massage therapy before scheduling.     

If you have travelled either outside the United States or within to any of the following U.S. states in the last 14 days you must self quarantine upon return to New York for at 14 days before scheduling. Those states are currently:


Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado,Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Guam, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Once we determine it is safe for you to schedule an appointment, we'll need to update both your Health Intake and Informed Consent forms. Revised forms are available for download, completion, and return on the CHM Services Page .
