Dear clients,

As you may have heard, RMTs are able to gradually restart massage therapy services.

I plan to return to practice on Monday July 6th 2020, as long as the situation allows.

Online booking will be available as of Saturday June 27th, 12pm.

I will be returning on a gradual basis, first prioritizing patients with urgent treatment needs, and I will be doing fewer treatments per day than I normally would. This is so I can reopen in a safe and measured way, keeping your health my top priority.

Policies and Procedures

I have implemented many new policies and procedures, based on the guidance of my regulator, the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, and the Ministry of Health to keep my patients as safe as possible.

This includes enhanced COVID-19 screening procedures, increased cleaning, and disinfecting focusing on hand hygiene and altering my clinic space, as well as wearing a mask throughout the treatment and asking patients to do the same. Please see specific policies below:

  • I will currently be operating a closed practice, meaning I will not be accepting new clients for the time being, to allow easier booking for my current clients.
  • I will be disabling same-day bookings for the time being, to allow for proper scheduling.  
  • I will limit treatment options to either 45 or 60 minutes.
  • Upon booking, you will be asked to fill a COVID-19 screening form online.
  • I will always be wearing a surgical/procedural mask and ask that clients also wear their own mask.
  • Please wait in your car for me to signal you to come in.
  • You will be asked to wash your hands for 20 seconds upon entry.
  • Only one client will be allowed in the clinic at a time, though support people will still be allowed to continue assisting as usual. Support staff/family are also required to wear a mask.
  • Due to my increased costs and limited treatments, all prices will be increasing by $5.

Your First Appointment

To make your first appointment during the COVID-19 pandemic as stress-free as possible, and to make things a bit less overwhelming, I wanted to share this guideline created by the Registered Massage Therapists’ Association of Ontario outlining what you can expect.

My priority will always be keeping my patients safe, and I will help guide you through all of the new policies and procedures so you can feel as safe as possible when you come in for a treatment.

I appreciate the support and understanding of my clients during this unprecedented time, and I appreciate your patience as we all navigate this new reality.

I look forward to welcoming you back to my clinic as safely as possible once you are ready to book an appointment! I will continue to keep you up to date on any new requirements and safety precautions I have taken as this pandemic continues to evolve.

Thank you and looking forward to welcoming you back,

Nick Jamotte, RMT
