covid-19 safety

sacred embodiment is open in compliance with all recommended and required safety protocols from all applicable parties, including the CDC, WHO, CDPHE, DORA, and ABMP.

The close physical contact of massage poses a risk at this time. I am taking every possible precaution to help mitigate that risk, but it still exists. You must determine if this risk is appropriate for you. Please carefully consider the full extent of this risk for yourself and your loved ones before receiving a massage.

I am limiting my schedule with ample time between each client to thoroughly disinfect and ventilate the space. Fresh air flows into the space through the window unit at all times, and a small fan clears the air around the face cradle to limit our expelled air contact while I am working around your neck and head. I wear a mask with a PM2.5 filter for the entirety of the session and change my apron in between each client.

I practice safer-at-home guidelines, social distancing and mask wearing when I go out for necessities. I do not go out for any unnecessary reason (restaurants/ bars/ socializing with friends). I expect that my clients are doing the same to protect me, my other clients, and my livelihood. If this is not your practice, please do not schedule an appointment.

If you are considering making an appointment, I recommend reading through the following:

Those with underlying conditions may be at higher risk for developing serious infections. If any of the underlying conditions applies to you, I strongly recommend postponing your massage until a vaccine for COVID-19 becomes available.

Underlying Conditions

65 years of age or older/ Living in a nursing home or long-term care facility/ Chronic lung disease/ Moderate to severe asthma/ Smoking/ Heart conditions/ Undergoing cancer treatment/ Liver disease/ Immune deficiencies/ Severe obesity/ Diabetes/ Chronic kidney disease and undergoing dialysis/ Bone marrow or organ transplant recipients/ Prolonged use of corticosteroids.

We are still unsure of the full extent of long-term health complications which may arise as a result of infection.
