SAFE SESSIONS IN THE AGE OF COVID-19
I want you to know what the Coronavirus that causes COVID-19 infection means re: your bodywork appointment. I also want to share with you my understanding about the State of Emergency and the spread of the virus, in case it helps you.
If you or someone you live with have a fever, cold symptoms, or a chest/sinus condition, please text or email me and let me reschedule your appointment.
If I have been exposed in any way to the new virus, I will let you know if it will impact your appointment. I will not knowingly put any client at risk of infection.
I will wear a mask at all times during the session.
I wash my hands to the elbows before and after I see each client, and sanitize every surface that I or a client touch between sessions. This includes table, doorknobs, chairs, sink and toilet handles, phone, computer, desk, pencils, EVERYTHING.
Please shower just before we begin our sessions and wear a mask at all times. If you do not have a mask, let me know and I will supply one for you.
Housecall clients supply your own table, pillows and sheets unless otherwise discussed prior to the session.
WHAT THIS VIRUS MEANS:
This virus is novel--this means that NO ONE who has not yet recovered from it has any natural immunity to the virus. Most of us have robust immune systems, and will clear the infection on our own in 10-14 days. But many of us don't have strong natural immunity: seniors, people with chronic diseases (like diabetes or liver disease), pregnant women, and people taking steroids or chemotherapies.
This virus is very VIRULENT--meaning it takes a tiny dose of the virus to become infected. That means that eventually EVERYONE will be exposed to it. Though most of us will get mildly sick a while and recover, and some may not show many symptoms at all, people with immune systems that are weakened will likely need medical care in a hospital.
THIS IS THE REASON THAT WE ARE TAKING SO MANY PRECAUTIONS TO SLOW THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS.
We are in the middle of a serious flu season that has our hospital Intensive Care Units already working close to the max. The capacity is not there to handle a massive number of patients with the new virus all at once. The best way to make sure that our doctors and nurses and hospitals remain available to those who need them, and able to function well, is to PROTECT EACH OTHER. It is up to us to slow the rate of infection by taking all of the precautions seriously. That means thinking carefully about every visit, every crowd, every restaurant, every trip we make. Wash hands, use thin cotton gloves when you have to touch door handles and touch screens or restrooms in public, then launder those in hot water.
ABOUT STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION
“There is a pattern, an order, in human bodies... When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through. Then spontaneously, the body heals itself.”
~Ida P. Rolf, PhD
Dr. Ida P. Rolf developed the process of Structural Integration as a holistic system combining soft tissue manipulation and movement education to restore the body to its natural state of alignment and balance - by lengthening, restoring, and reorganizing the FASCIA, the connective tissue matrix of the body.
