This Brave New World
We live in a brave, new world. In this new world, people are expecting responsible personal protections for close-contact interactions, especially businesses. We are such a business, so we want you to know the steps that we are taking to help ensure your safety while you are in our facility and to request your help in keeping our staff and clients safe.
In the following sections, when we talk about “disinfecting” or “spraying down” anything, we are referring to using a powerful commercial disinfectant that specifically names “coronavirus” as one of the pathogens that it kills on contact. We follow posted guidelines from the CDC, WEDC, and Associated Massage & Bodywork Professionals to guide us in establishing our protocols.
What We Do Before Opening
- Spray and wipe down all contact surfaces such as switches, door handles, desktops, phones, and equipment that we use.
- Sanitize our hot stones and any other instruments, devices, or other things that we may use in the course of your massage.
What We Do After Each Client
- Remove all used massage table sheets and face cradle covers.
- Spray and wipe down table and face cradle with a disinfectant that specifically names coronavirus.
- Allow the disinfectant “settling time” to do its job, per the manufacturer’s recommendations.
- Disinfect hot stones and any other materials that were used during the session.
- Place all used massage sheets, face cradle covers, and towels in a sealed container.
What We Do As Practitioners
- We thoroughly wash and disinfect our hands and arms before each client.
- We will be wearing face masks for the immediate future until such time that it is deemed unnecessary.
- We take a wellness assessment and body temperature before arriving and will not practice if any illness is suspected.
How We Sanitize Things
- All sheets and towels are washed in hot water with hypoallergenic laundry detergent, according to CDC best practices.
- Surfaces are wiped-down at the end of the day before we leave for the evening.
- We use disinfectants that specifically name “coronavirus” as one of the pathogens that it kills on contact.
- Where appropriate, we follow These CDC Guidelines for safely protecting our space.
What We Expect From Clients
To ensure the safety of our staff and all the clients that will be in our facility, we are requiring the following from each client:
- Please take your temperature at home the day of your appointment.
- Cancel your appointment if you are not feeling well or have a temperature in excess of 99°F.
- We will take a forehead temperature before your session and deny service to anyone with a temperature over 99°F.
- Bring with you and wear a face mask the entire time you are in our facility. When face-down on the massage table, it is optional.
Until such time that it is deemed unnecessary, we reserve the right to deny service to anyone that appears sick, or is coughing or sneezing. We respect how you may feel about this and the other measures being imposed on us, and we kindly ask for your cooperation while we navigate through these uncharted waters.
No matter how much you enjoy what you do, there are still stresses and tensions in everyday life that take a toll on your mind and body. Massage Therapy can help reverse the damage done by this stress, and do it drug-free. Massage does more than just relax your mind and relieve tired muscles; it restores function and allows you to do more without NSAIDs or other medications.
At Radiant Healing, you can expect a warm greeting, a comfortable environment, and a customized session focused on your immediate needs. Prior to the session, we’ll discuss your current health conditions, areas of stress and pain, and concerns you may have so that you can receive the maximum physical and emotional benefit every time. Check out our various practice modalities here.
How much does it cost? Our prices are exceptionally competitive with bodywork practices in and around the area. Our clients tell us that they receive extraordianry value for the healing relief that we provide. We often run special deals (that sell out fast), so check out and Like our Facebook Page to keep abreast of those deals.
I have been at the practice of healing with massage for many years, and my clients have told me that they feel a strong energetic component to the work. I always thought it was the energy that radiates from a therapist’s hands that promotes the physical work of the massage so, when coming up with a name for my business, I chose Radiant Hands Healing. For years, that’s what it was called, and it was the domain for our website and email.
Over time I got feedback from clients that the long name was a little difficult to remember (and type), so after consideration, meditation, and the realization that the radiant energy of massage emanates from the therapist’s full body (the aura), I decided to shorten it to Radiant Healing; what it is today. For the technically inclined, either radianthealing.com or the original radianthandshealing.com, works for both the website and email.
And I promise that the entire staff here will continue to provide you with the best energetic healing massage possible.
