As of 3/28/2022:
We are now a "mask optional/encouraged" facility for clients.
Please continue to monitor any symptoms of illness and reschedule to stop the spread of COVID, colds, flu, and contagious bacterial and viral germs.
Therapists will continue to wear a mask for immune-sensitive clients and for those who wish to continue to be cautious. If you wear a mask, therapists will wear a mask. If you wish for a therapist to wear a mask and we are not, simply ask!
The following practices are still implemented:
**Thank you for being supportive and understanding during these last 2 years of pandemic life!
We reserve the right to change this policy if the Health Dept indicates it would be wise. But for now, "despite a slight uptick earlier this week, COVID-19 cases in Colorado remain near their lowest levels of the pandemic, and experts say the spread of a new subvariant of the virus in Europe is unlikely to lead to an imminent surge here. This is the new subvariant of omicron, known as BBA.2 This strain is at least 30% more transmissible than omicron, which burned through Colorado in December and January and sent case rates skyrocketing."
As of 1/12/2022:
Current COVID Policies
We're grateful for the ability to continue in-person with you, and we want to make sure we're continuing to promote a healthy and smart environment.
Masks are required to enter our offices and receive bodywork. Multi-layer surgical masks or N95/KN95 masks are recommended over cloth masks.
For the safety of our whole community and not just ourselves, we strongly recommend that clients get vaccinated and stay up to date on boosters. Both of our practitioners are vaxed and boosted and wear our N95's throughout the work day.
If you are sick, please stay home and notify the us as SOON as you know you have symptoms by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We know it’s hard to stay home for bodywork you love, and we appreciate you helping us keep our health care environment COVID free.
We are following the CDC recommendations for quarantine practices. If you test positive for COVID, please:
If you are severely ill with COVID, you should isolate for at least 10 days and consult your doctor before ending isolation, according to the CDC.
For more scenarios involving exposure and quarantining, LymphWorks will be following the current chart on the CDC’s website. We ask you to review the chart, and we thank you for being mindful of our community’s health!
As of May 17th, 2021:
Please continue to arrive just before your appointment time as we are still not allowing any congregating in our waiting room.
We truly value your patience and thank you for your continued support.
Despite our new COVID-19 reality, LymphWorks began taking clients on May 1st, 2020 with some extra time between sessions to accommodate extra cleaning and sanitizing. Our scheduler is open for booking should you need a good massage, lymphatic work, cupping, essential oils, energy healing or any combination of body / mind / spirit nourishment. We also have remote energy healing/coaching available and it is done via ZOOM.
While we emphasize that we are transforming how we practice safer, there is no known way to completely eliminate the risk of transmission and infection.
There simply is no risk-free environment in which to conduct business today (any type of business). Please review the details below to understand how together, will create the safest environment possible for everyone.
In the last 14 days:
If you answered YES to any of the questions please contact the office immediately (970-222-9421) as we will determine if it is appropriate for you to schedule during this time.
We have a non-touch thermometer and Pulse Oximeter to check symptoms prior to sessions when necessary.
Below is our new massage office policy and reality until further notice:
We may legally have to close and quarantine for 5 to 10 days if we come in contact with someone with COVID-19! Please do not come into the building if you have symptoms, period. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who may put therapists and clients at risk.
Everyone knows the habit of washing hands, bathing regularly, and using hand sanitizers. Please don't let your guard down with that habit! We will continue to have hand sanitizers available in every room in our office.
Entering the Building
To avoid having multiple people staying in the waiting room for prolonged periods of time, we ask that you wait to arrive until just before your session starts time. We as that you head straight to the bathrooms and wash your hands. We may check your temperature before the session. Clock time will start after a short verbal intake. If you need more time to talk, please know that we may need to end my session with you on time so that we can still have a buffer between you and the next client.
Cleanup Time Buffer
We have added more time between sessions on the scheduler to allow for extra sanitation. Wiping down common surfaces, door knobs, changing sheets, etc., just as we started to do before we had to stop operations. Please note we do not use toxic or chemically dangerous cleaning supplies with cancer causing agents such as Bleach, Lysol or heavy fragrance items. We use cleaners with primary ingredients of hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, and / or citric acid and therapeutic grade essential oils.
Diffuser Use / Air Purification
We will be diffusing therapeutic grade essential oils to disperse them into the air which are commonly known to have anti-viral and bacterial properties. They are safe for pregnancy and those who are sensitive to fragrances if they do not contain artificial scents. We will also be running a FDA approved Medical Molekule PECO filters in both LymphWorks' therapy rooms.
Face Mask Use
Until wide spread viral and antibody testing is available and we know that we can gain immunity, we have a mask wearing policy. Therapists will continue to wear surgical, N95 to N99 masks or equivalent while in session with all clients. Your therapist may also wear a FACE SHIELD in addition to a mask. All clients will wear a mask while laying on your back or side laying (per the Larimer County Health Department). We understand that some of you may not be able to do this due to oxygen levels or claustrophobia and will work with you after trying or happy to accommodate Doctors scripts for modifications. Please remember to wear your own mask of any type to comfortably cover your mouth and nose into the building. We prefer face masks to bandanas as bandanas can inhibit the work on the neck. We have extra surgical masks and some cloth masks for borrowing if you happen to forget yours. Text your therapist from your car if this is the case and we can bring one out to you.
Massage After COVID-19
If you or a family member has or has recovered from COVID-19, please follow the guidelines of the CDC and local health department for how to know when it is safe to get out of isolation. Please let me know if you or a family member has endured this virus BEFORE our session. Trust your gut and let me know as soon as possible! I'd rather be more cautious than be doubtful!
We change to checking out / taking payment and reschedule in the treatment room via cell phone to cell phone so that when you are finished, you can walk right out of the office. We will take credit card via Schedulicity, checks, and cash. Please remember, all times set aside between sessions are for cleaning and sanitation, so it is best to come prepared and have checks pre-written and cash as exact change.
At this time, please do not bring in anyone else who is not going into session with you. Allow them to wait in the car or arrange a pick up time. As always please call to cancel if you are not feeling well or someone in your home is not feeling because we will not charge you for last minute cancellations due to illness. As always, please be courteous and contact us with as much notice as possible if you do not feel well.
Credit Card when Scheduling
You may notice that the next time you schedule Schedulicity App will ask you for your credit card information. We started this during the stay-at-home order to make it easier to charge a card after a remote energy healing session. We are going to keep this feature for that purpose, for ease of non-contact payment (which is more expensive for us but cleaner for now) and to be able to charge for no-shows without notice. You should only have to enter credit card information once. Entering the information does not charge the card and you may always change the credit card on file.
