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.
Who We Are
If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that we are all connected; physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We can’t look away from the stunning events of 2020, but we do have the opportunity to take a stance on what we believe, and who we will be in this new space. So, in one small aspect of who we are and the beliefs that we hold true, we want to state the following as concerns you, our client.
This does not represent a new position for any of us. It is merely stating out loud and publicly what we believe and how we welcome and serve our clients every day. Think of a time when you did not feel welcome. You will not feel that here at Radiant Healing. We hold ourselves to a standard that is inclusive of everyone who walks through our door, and there are no barriers to anyone based on sexual orientation, gender identity, race, color, or physical characteristics. Some refer to this as being LGBTQ-Friendly. We are, and we also call it HUMAN-Friendly.
Any suggestions or treatment that we may give you are based solely, in our professional opinion, on what serves your needs best. We encourage dialogue between you, the client, and us, the practitioners. We will explain everything about our treatment process and why we suggest a course of therapy or treat your body in a specific way. So come on in and let us serve you in a way that does your mind and body good, and makes your day-to-day life a little easier.
What We Do
In a word, we do Massage, because 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 We Do It
It’s rare that a company talks about their behind-the-scenes operations, either because it would be boring to customers, or they want to protect trade secrets. We think there are certain things that you should know about our operations and how it can impact your well-being.
We use free and clear laundry products to wash, sanitize, and dry all of our practice linens, which includes massage table sheets, face cradle covers, towels, and other items. Anything that may contact bare skin is carefully handled using hypoallergenic soaps, cleaners, and treatments.
All of our therapeutic products such as massage oils, creams, and lotions are also natural, hypoallergenic, and pure. When we use essential oils for therapy, they are always 100% therapeutic grade.
Your safety and comfort, and that of our therapist team, is always our highest concern. You can rely on us to keep your best interests at heart. If you should ever have any questions about our products, procedures, or facility, please talk to us.

Deep Tissue Massage
Lymphatic massage addresses the lymphatic system; an important part of the immune system. This treatment uses very light, slow, rhythmic movements to increase flow of lymphatic fluid through the entire body. Lymphatic drainage treatment is highly effective in reducing inflammation, especially after surgery or trauma, such as a sports injury. It can also help stimulate the immune response when recovering from an illness or when struggling with seasonal changes. Lymphatic treatments can be helpful when treating inflammation, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and Lyme disease.
