Covid - 19 Policy and Procedures

By the very nature of our services at Bodhi Ayurveda, our massages, bodywork and facials require skin to skin contact within a confined location for an extended period of time.  As we continue to learn more about novel coronovirus (aka Covid-19), the amount of risk this relationship creates matures.  What we do believe is that our services do provide a certain level of heightened risk of exposure to both of us. Keeping you and our team as safe as possible during your service is our highest priority. 

One of our top priorities has always been to provide a safe, clean and protected environment from harm, including from infectious diseases. In light of the recent impact of the coronovirus, we continue to navigate our spa practices with additional requirements and modify existing measures to minimize the risks of infection.  

Bodhi Ayurveda has verified current practices and implemented additional the practice guidelines recommended by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB), along with the infection control recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).  As a novel virus, new information and recommendations may result in changes to our practices.  

What you may witness are changes to our interaction at your appointment. Bodhi Ayurveda has made the following changes to help protect you and us. Following is a summary of our changes: 

  • We will serve one client at a time.

  • We will conduct a pre-treatment screening. 

  • We are adding extra time between clients for extensive sanitation.

  • We will offer hand sanitizer available throughout the space.

  • We will offer Surgical Masks if you don't have your own.

  • We will wear a mask throughout your entire visit.

  • We will regularly take the coronovirus test to verify we are negative. 

What YOU can expect prior your appointment:

  • Please arrive no more than 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment time.

  • The lobby door will remain locked until we are finished with any previous clients and sanitation.  

  • Please enter the center with a surgical mask on.  If you do not have one, we will provide you with one. 

  • Before starting your treatment, a pre-screening questionnaire will be conducted to verify you are free of Covid-19 symptoms.

  • An informed consent form will follow the questionnaire. 

  • You will be required to wash your hands prior to entering the treatment room.  

  • Hand sanitizer will be available to you in all rooms and should be used when you cannot wash your hands. 

What YOU can expect during your appointment:

  • Until more is known about the virus, we will avoid massaging the face and scalp during your treatments. 

  • While the treatment is being performed, we should both keep speaking to a minimum. 

  • If it is normally included in your service, you may choose to have hot steamed towels instead of the steam cabinet.

  • After exiting the treatment room, please wash your hands again. 

  • Check out and rescheduling can be done in the lobby. 

  • Payment can be made by cash, check or credit.

What WE expect of you:

  • You will contact Bodhi Ayurveda as soon as safely possible if you test positive for the coronovirus within 30 days of your last appointment. 

Self care is still an important part of a healthy lifestyle and we look forward to taking care of you.  If you have specific requests for your comfort during a service, we are willing to discuss how we can accommodate additional safety measures.
