IMPORTANT INFORMATION

We Are Serious About Protecting You and Ourselves

COVID-19

Dear all: 
As we welcome you back to our clinic, we like to inform you of the changes we made to ensure your safety. Although we take extraordinary precautions, please note that:
  • The massage therapy treatments involve some risk of COVID-19 transmission, and
  • Our RMTs follow a protocol to reduce or mitigate risk, but that risk cannot be reduced to zero. 

Prescreening

  • Before each treatment, you will be required to complete a self-assessment at https://bc.thrive.health/covid19/en
  • Before the treatment, you will receive a phone call to ensure you do not show any COVID-19 symptoms and have completed the self-assessment above
  • If you are a NEW PATIENT, complete the digital intake form available with your appointment confirmation e-mail IMMEDIATELY after booking, so contact tracing can be done efficiently if the need arises.
  • One day (24 hours) before EACH treatment, you will receive a reminder e-mail.  Within that e-mail, you will need to confirm your treatment AND complete the COVID-19 prescreening form by clicking the "COMPLETE COVID SCREENING" red button.
  • We ask you to bring a facemask for your treatment, and we may check your temperature on arrival.
  • We ask you to cancel your treatment if you have travelled outside the province in the past 14 days or showed symptoms, or came into contact with anyone who showed signs of COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
  • If you are a high-risk patient or immunocompromised, you may be asked to cancel or postpone your treatment if the risk to you outweighs the benefit of the treatment.
  • RMTs may ask you about extensive contacts with individuals outside the immediate family or work connections that may increase the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
  • RMTs will cancel your treatment if you do not meet the prescreening criteria.

First Level Protection (Elimination)

  • Arrive whitin 5 minutes of your treatment to ensure social distancing. If you arrive more than 5 minutes before your treatment you may need to wait before we can see you. Arriving too early puts other patients at risk.
  • We limit the number of patients in the reception area to ONE for the duration of the pandemic.
  • To ensure social distancing, we have standardized all treatment durations to 60-Minutes.
  • The therapists are working staggered shifts to improve social distancing.
  • To reduce the potential of transmission, we ask you to come for your treatment unaccompanied by family or friends.
  • Prepayments may be required to shorten the amount of time you spend in the clinic post-treatment
  • To limit unnecessary object touching, we recommend you pay your RMT directly by asking the therapist for direct billing with your insurance or via e-transfer as follows:

Second Level Protection (Engineering Controls)

  • We have installed a sneeze shield in the reception area to create a physical barrier between receptionists and patients.
  • We have eliminated the sitting area in the lobby, and access to the clinic is only going to be available 3-5 minutes before your treatment.

Third Level Protection-Administrative Measures

  • Several posters from BC's Center for Disease Control have been posted on the clinic's main door and the doors of each treatment room, by sinks,  in the proximity of the reception desk and hand sanitation station, and both bathrooms on our floor.
  • The garbage containers are foot-operated and labelled with "use foot pedal only" message to reduce surface touching.
  • For the duration of the pandemic, we have eliminated the last-minute cancellation and the no-show fees when related to COVID-19 symptoms (to be taken in good faith)
  • Following the conclusion of your treatment, future appointments can be booked with your RMT in the treatment room.
  • We have eliminated the water fountain, chocolate jar, business cards and all promotional items from the reception area.
  • We have eliminated table warmers, extra padding and blankets from treatment rooms to reduce cross-contamination opportunities.
  • All invoices will be e-mailed to you by your RMT, and no printed invoices are available.
  • As we do not control the common areas in the building, we ask you to use them with caution, understanding the increased possibility of virus transmission.

Fourth Level Protection (PPE)

  • All therapists will be wearing PPE as per the Provincial  Health Officer's requirements or as mandated by the College of Massage Therapists of BC.

Hygiene, Cleaning & Sanitation

  • Using Triton Hand Sanitizer (DIN 80097749), an alcohol-based hand sanitizer recommended by WorkSafe BC and approved by Health Canada.
  • Using Sanitol RTU - Disinfectant and Sanitizer (Health Canada DIN # 02344904)
  • Thorough disinfecting and cleaning the treatment room before and after your treatment, including massage tables, sinks, doors knobs, clothing hangers and chairs
  • Therapists are to wash their hands regularly during the treatment, especially when working on different parts of the body.
  • Regular disinfecting and cleaning of the common area
  • All linen is washed and sanitized by professional laundry services and is packaged in sealed plastic bags until usage.
  • Vinyl pillowcases that are sanitized after each patient are being used during treatments
  • Hand sanitizer is located at the entrance of the clinic, to be used when entering the premises.
  • Paper tissue is available in all treatment rooms and reception areas.
  • To adhere to and ensure the sanitation protocols mentioned above, we have increased the time between patients to 15 minutes.
