Arriving for your appointment:

Please arrive to your appointment no more than five minutes early. This will decrease the number of people in the space and allow for best physical distancing measures.

 

We ask that you please comply with the following measures to keep everyone safe during this time:

Quiet Tables (less talking) – Patients and therapists alike may respectfully request a quiet table at any time. Quiet table sessions may offer deeper relaxation and a safer environment.

We reserve the right to refuse service for anyone who does not cooperate with our safety protocols. Any persons not following protocol will be kindly asked to leave. 

 

At Toronto Bodyworks we have:

 

Your Massage Therapist / Acupuncturist will: 

 

Disinfection

Your Massage Therapist / Acupuncturist will follow the cleaning and disinfection protocols from The Minister of Health and the directives of their Colleges. This would include disinfection of all diagnostic and treatment tools and treatment surfaces between each patient visit. Times between appointments have been increased to allow for the disinfection process to be thorough and successful.
