I am excited to be reopening and am working hard to create an environment in which you are excited to return! Please know that I take the threat of COVID-19 very seriously, and along with normal protocols I have implemented many new practices outlined by the State Medical Board of Ohio, and the Responsible RestartOhio plan.


Prior to coming in I ask all clients to perform a symptom screening assessment and to please reschedule if you are symptomatic or believe you have been exposed and are an asymptomatic carrier. *Symptom assessments should include assessing for symptoms and taking your temperature with a thermometer and monitoring for fever. Per the CDC, symptoms include cough, shortness of breath or difficult breathing, and two of the following: chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headaches, sore throat and new loss of taste or smell.


Please come prepared with a facial covering as all clients will be required to wear them while entering and leaveing the building and in common areas. I am also required to wear facial coverings in common areas and the treatment room.


Until further notice the waiting room will remain closed. We ask that you please wait in your car, or the beautiful sunshine. I will contact you when I have properly sanitized after the previous client and I am ready to begin. appointment. I will happily greet you and open the door for you, asking that you use our available hand sanitizer upon entering or wash hands with soap and water in our facilities prior to entering your treatment room.

At this time only clients and their caregivers will be allowed to enter the office. Our goal is to create an environment everyone feels safe returning to. So while you walk thru our space please be mindful to touch as little as needed and to not linger in the common areas. Social distancing will still apply with the exception of client/therapist working interaction.


I will perform a symptom screening assessment each day before entering the office. I apologize in advance for any last minute cancellations but please understand it is with your health in mind. After each client, I will sanitize any areas a client may have come in contact with, including but not limited to doorknobs, light switches, furniture, table and facilities. As always I wash with soap and water before and after every client, as well as providing clean linens for every session. I will also be maintaining accurate appointment records to assist in contact tracing if the need should arise.

Thank you for your understanding and I can’t wait to see you!

Leverage Massage Therapy is dedicated to providing a professional experience for you everytime. Here are a few things to know before hand.

Preliminary Information

  • Your massage therapist will ask preliminary questions to determine your overall health and your health and wellness goals.
  • The massage therapist will consider information about your physical condition, medical history, lifestyle, stress levels, medications and any areas of physical pain that could affect your massage therapy outcome.
  • This information will help the massage therapist structure the session to achieve your health and wellness goals.

Privacy

  • Before your massage, you’ll be asked to remove clothing to your level of comfort.
  • The therapist will leave the room while you undress. Take off only as much as you are comfortable removing.
  • Lie on the massage table, underneath the provided sheet and blanket for your comfort, which will cover your body through the massage except for the part being massaged.
  • Chair massages, which often are offered in public spaces and workplaces, are an exception. A specially-designed massage chair lets you lean forward and supports the front of the body. You remain clothed and no oil or lotion is used. Seated massages typically last from 10 to 30 minutes.

Environment

  • Soft music will be played to add a level of relaxion and comfort. If you find music distracting, tell your massage therapist. The same goes for talking during your session.
  • Your massage therapists should check on pressure and comfort throughout your appointment. If you're uncomfortable at any time, tell your massage therapist.
  • The massage table is padded, and may have extra attachments or cushions, such as a face cradle, which allows you to lie facedown without turning your head or neck.

Massage Therapy

  • Massage therapists often use oil or lotion. If you're allergic to oils or lotions, tell your massage therapist beforehand.
  • If you're receiving hot stone massage, make sure you're comfortable with the temperature of the stones.
  • Depending on your needs, the massage therapist will massage either the full body (except private areas) or only specific areas that need attention, such as especially tight muscles.
  • Remember to breathe normally.
  • Table massage usually lasts beween 30 and 90 minutes.
  • After your massage, the massage therapist will allow you to slowly get up and get dressed in privacy. Usually your massage therapist will offer you water after you’re dressed.

The benefits of massage are cumulative, so work with your massage therapist to customize a plan to meet your health and wellness goals.
