Update: Clinic CLOSED Things are changing very fast, as we all are very aware.
The following is an email I received from my professional college (CMTO) which mandated, that all RMTs are to:
Suspend All Non-Essential Massage Therapy Treatments Immediately Public safety is our number one concern.
So I am closing my clinic tentatively until Tuesday March 31, 2020 I apologize for any inconveniences this may have for you. Please use my online booking tool to reschedule (jcaldwell.ca).
Contact me if you have any questions. Also please let me know that you have received this email.
Stay calm, be present and enjoy the time with loved ones. In good health
March 16, 2020 In light of the recent developments regarding COVID-19, I wanted to reach out to all of my clients and let you know what steps are being taken to keep all of you, and myself healthy. This is a crazy and unsettling time. Each of us needs to remain calm and present, so that we are in a position to make informed and rational decisions.
The most effective way to stop the spread of a virus, is to promote a healthy environment internally (strong immune system) and externally, through disinfecting, cleaning and personal, responsible actions, Everyone needs to share in this responsibility by routinely washing their hands with soap and water and distancing themselves from others if any symptoms arise. If we collectively share this responsibility, then we can also collectively move through this unsettling time more efficiently, In the clinic space, I have been doing extra cleaning, using medical grade cleaners. All doorknobs and shared surfaces (transaction terminals, chairs, desk, table, counter) are wiped down and cleaned regularly. I am also purifying the air during all appointments with Thieve’s oil, which has antimicrobial properties.
Appointments are still running as scheduled. However, I would ask if you feel any symptoms, or have been in contact with someone that is symptomatic, to NOT attend your appointment. This will help minimize the spread to others. Please let me know as soon as possible if you need to cancel, so that your appointment can be offered to another. There are a number of people that come through the clinic in a week, and it is also my home, so I ask that you take all the preventative measures that you can, so we can keep ourselves, and others healthy.
If you have any questions or concerns about appointments or cancellations, please reach out to me via phone, email or txt..
