UPDATE on TESTING 9/3/2020: NYS just updated their guidelines in one significant way. We can now perform inner mouth work for TMJ and migraines if the therapist wears a face shield in addition to a mask and goggles. See the full update on our COVID-19 Safety post for exactly how will perform this work for clients who may need it and want it. Part of the guidelines are a requirement for a new negative covid-19 diagnostic test on or after September 3rd. For any therapist trained in this work who wants to offer it to clients, we will post their negative results here.

UPDATE on TESTING 7/30/2020: NYS is now in Phase 4 and testing is longer required by NYS for massage therapists. Testing is also currently experiencing breakdowns in supply chains resulting in longer wait times for results. Therefore, in the interest of public health, we are no longer asking our therapists to get tested every two weeks to help free up testing capacity for people who are actually experiencing symptoms.

We want to help the public feel safe about getting massage therapy during this time. So, in following NYS guidelines to reopen, we will be requiring that therapists get a covid-19 test every two weeks while in phase 3. In addition, we will be posting our therapist’s COVID-19 diagnostic test results publicly here. When NYC moves to phase 4, owner David Weintraub will continue to get a test every two weeks. As long as testing remains available.

This means, at minimum, we will have all had at least one negative COVID-19 diagnostic test before working with clients. And an additional test two weeks after we start working with clients again.

If a therapist receives a positive test, we will immediately quarantine them until they receive a negative test. In addition, we will close the treatment room they worked in for 24 hours, then sterilize it before allowing it to be used again. They will not be allowed back to work until they get a confirmed negative test result. We will assist contact tracers in tracking any clients they worked with and inform them of the results. Our staff will be maintaining social distance and mask wearing at all times at our studios.

As we reopen, we will do everything we can to keep you and our staff safe while still being able to provide high quality pain relief!
