New Protocol Covid-19:
The Government of Ontario and the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario are ensuring the public is well protected by asking all Massage Therapists to put certain measures in place before we were allowed back to work.
No online booking for now. Email or text me and I will call you to book your appointment. You will be screened when booking the appointment and again the day before your treatment. If you do not pass the pre-screening, we will reschedule your booked appointment. It is recommended you come alone to your appointment. If that is not possible, the person who accompanies you will be screened too, and they will have to wait in their car or return to get you. Try to arrive no more than 5 minutes before your appointment.
When you arrive for your appointment: another screening including your temperature (with a touchless device) will be performed. If the screening is not negative, we will reschedule your appointment. Once you have passed the screening, you will wash or sanitize your hands, put on disposable booties and mask, and enter the treatment room. Please bring a clean cloth mask or a clean disposable mask with you to the appointment.
All equipment is disinfected before and after every treatment, and all linen is washed in between clients. The washroom is also sanitized before and after each use. All doorknobs and areas that you may contact are cleaned before you arrive and after you leave.
If you are showing any possible symptoms after you begin your treatment, then the treatment will be terminated and rescheduled for another date. If you are unsure of your status on the day of the treatment, or if you think you may be ill, you can do a self-assessment at the Ontario website: covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment.
Massage therapy involves the manipulation of the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments) and joints by the therapist, using a variety of manual techniques. These techniques improve functioning of the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, skeletal and nervous systems and improve the rate at which the body recovers from injury or illness. Combined Decongestive Therapy uses Integrated Lymph Drainage, Myofascial Release and other components in the treatment of Primary and Secondary Lymphedema.
Leslie Sachse RMT CDT
“When I embarked on a change of careers, I was looking for a field in which I would be able to help others to reduce and manage their pain, while increasing their sense of well being. This desire motivated me to choose massage therapy. Before becoming a Registered Massage Therapist, I worked as a laboratory technologist in a busy hospital environment. It was there that I witnessed firsthand a lot of pain, suffering and anxiety experienced by people coping with the various conditions that brought them there. Massage therapy has equipped me with the ability to offer care and comfort to those who need it. I believe massage therapy is an integral part of a health and wellness regime. I find it extremely rewarding to work one-on-one with clients; working together to create a strategy for pain management, while assisting in their journey of recovery and striving towards the best possible outcome.”
