Latest update from The AMTA ….

“COVID-19 Reopening Resources for Massage Therapists

As we cautiously look to the future, many massage therapists have questions about when and how they can begin caring for their clients again. AMTA has been actively engaging with federal and state agencies, as they consider reopening strategies, to provide consultation, information and feedback on their processes; understanding they will vary greatly from state-to-state. We are a diverse profession and in some states those decisions are near; for others they may be further away. 

When your state allows you to reopen, whether or not you choose to return to work is a personal decision. There are many factors to consider when deciding to return to work, including how your community (and client base) has been affected, your own vulnerability to the virus (along with those you live with), and the physical, mental and financial factors involved. Each individual will need to fully assess their own unique situation to decide what feels right for them.

Unfortunately, even with the most rigorous sanitation protocols, enhanced client screening, and social distancing precautions, there is still risk of COVID-19 transmission involved. For this reason, we ask that you choose your restart date carefully, and encourage you to gain a full understanding of new laws and ordinances at the local, state and national levels, and adjust your practices accordingly.”

Although Massage Therapy was listed to reopen in phase 2, The state of Massachusetts is still awaiting these guidelines and safety protocols to become available. Therefore, A Touch of Hart Therapeutic Massage cannot, by law, set a reopening date until these protocols can be reviewed and implemented. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I will be sure to keep you up- to- date on all pertinent  information  regarding this matter as it becomes available.

Sincerely

Susan Hart L.M.T.
