We know everyone has different views and opinions on the pandemic. We understand, It’s hard to know what information to trust. As always, for us, the most important part is safety. We will continue to work at the highest and safest levels available. This will require some restrictions for the time being, and we need all clients to participate. If you are unable to follow our protocols for any reason, we suggest waiting til all restrictions are lifted to receive our services.

It doesn’t end there. We want you to know what our studio and staff are doing to keep everyone safe. This includes a brand new infection control plan and many new protocols to keep us working as close as possible to current medical clinic standards. We are undergoing complete training on these new protocols. Our entire staff has also taken WHO (World Heath Organization) Covid-19 training classes including Infection Prevention, Standard Precautions, PPE use, and hand hygiene. Our staff will be wearing masks while working, and will be closely monitored for illness. We have protocols in place in the event of anyone becoming ill. We have created a new lay-out in the studio. We have upgraded and repaired in order to comply with social distancing and in order to keep a safe working environment. Along with monitoring our health conditions, if any of our staff members are feeling ill or has come in contact with someone sick, they will be directed to stay at home. We are working hard to keep up with the ever changing landscape, and we are ready to implement any necessary changes as they arise.
