We will overcome.

On Being Good Citizens         – COVID 19 –         Our current policy

We are living in unprecedented times and everyone is questioning whether to keep their appointments for massage.  We understand.  We are in the same position.

Please know that here at Body • Mind • Spirit we are following all of the usual protocol but have stepped up the sanitizing of all surfaces that either we or our clients have come in contact with before and after every person who enters our facility.  We always make the effort to maintain a clean hygienic space but those efforts have been ramped up in accordance with the guidelines set by our professional organization, ABMP (Association for Bodywork and Massage Practitioners) in light of the current crisis.  Please keep in mind that we may have to close our doors at a moments notice as we follow the governing directives for our profession and the State of Delaware.  Please confirm your appointment before coming in if you have an existing appointment.

We ask that if you have a fever (typically the first sign), cough, shortness of breath or any question whatsoever regarding your health please call our office to reschedule.   And stay home.  If anyone in your household exhibits these systems you should stay home.  If you are in a high-risk group it is wise for you to stay home as well.

If you are healthy and have limited your exposure to public places we will schedule an appointment for you.  You can expect a phone call prior to your appointment to discuss any changes in policy.  Please also be advised that we are requesting that everyone entering the office thoroughly wash their hands immediately upon arrival and before entering the treatment room.  Limit your contact with any surfaces as much as possible.

We are monitoring the latest in directives from our industry and will keep you apprised of any changes.  As well, we will not be charging late-fees for last-minute cancellations.  Please err on the side of caution if you have any question whatsoever as to whether you should come in.  We are always here for you, but within reason.  The health of our therapists and in turn of each of our clients is of our utmost concern.

If you have a membership and are concerned about coming in please know that we will put all expirations on hold.  You will not lose any of your massage sessions due to timing out.

Lastly, it’s up to each one of us to be a good citizen.  If your massage is for relaxation purposes only perhaps a walk outdoors or quiet meditation or prayer is the best option for now.  If you are struggling with anxiety/pain/acute or chronic conditions that we have been treating we’re here to help as long as it is feasible to do so.

Please be mindful of others whether or not you are at risk of getting severely ill yourself when considering all activities.  And lastly,

May you be healthy.  And may you find peace in slowing down.

With gratitude,

Laurie and the entire team here at Body • Mind • Spirit.
