Be Fluid Bodywork and the Pandemic
The office is open, and Patricia feels lucky to have received her COVID vaccine. Special entry and cleaning protocols and adjustments to services have been made to meet the moment. The most noticeable change is that we’ll both be wearing masks throughout your office visit. For now, hands-on services are limited to Bowenwork sessions.
Have you heard of the Swiss cheese approach to infection control?
Recognizing that no one intervention can completely remove the risk of working in close contact with one another, Be Fluid Bodywork has introduced a variety of overlapping measures. Each measure is imperfect, but combined with other measures does something (but, not everything) to reduce risk. Scroll down for more detail on this multiple barrier approach.
Before your appointment, please review the Be Fluid Bodywork COVID-19 Safety Plan, print and complete the new consent form and bring it with you to your in-office visit. Click the link buttons below to review the safety plan and print your consent form.
We Got This
The pandemic has required us to work collectively to support the health and safety of the community in extraordinary ways. As more of us get vaccinated, you might wonder why we can’t take our masks off in the office or return to longer or less socially-distanced sessions. Masks are still required in public, including in places of business like Be Fluid Bodywork. That requirement will change when the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) changes its recommendations.
Canceling appointments at short notice and communicating openly and transparently about symptoms and suspected close contacts might feel awkward. It is encouraged despite the awkwardness. Working together to support the collective recovery of our community must include consistent masking and open communication about health topics we may have once considered private. Together, we can do this.
Massage and Bodywork during a Pandemic
Be Fluid Bodywork’s Safety Plan and pandemic practices rely on a “multiple barrier approach” to reduce exposure and transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Simply put, people are safer when multiple barriers separate them from the virus.
Generally, barriers include:
- Face Coverings
- Safe physical distancing
- Cleaning of workspace
- Office policies and procedures
All clients visiting the office will be asked to understand and consent to receive massage and/or bodywork under the polices and practices described in the Safety Plan. Be Fluid Bodywork is actively updating and managing the plan as new information or updated guidelines become available.
