Safety Procedures

Embody Wellness is committed to your safety and health. By its very nature, massage and bodywork requires skin-to-skin contact and you should be familiar with the fact that infection control has always been a top priority for Embody Wellness. 

  • We will communicate with you when you book your session to obtain updates to your health information and ask you specifically about your potential exposure to COVID-19.

  • Appointment times will be staggered to maintain social distancing in common areas

  • When you arrive at the office, we will ask that you wait in your vehicle and text/call 805-217-3307.  This ensures that we do not have too many people in the reception area at one time and that we have been able to fully disinfect the office.

    • If we don’t answer immediately it just means we are in the process of ensuring the building is ready for you to enter. We will call you back as soon as possible.

  • We will greet you at the door and use a no touch thermal temperature screening to confirm that you do not have a fever of 100.4 or higher.

  • We will ask you if you have developed any symptoms of illness since we spoke on the phone.

    • If you feel ill on the day of your session, please notify us immediately. There is no penalty for canceling your appointment if you notify us prior to your appointment.

    • If you arrive to your appointment ill or exhibiting signs of illness, you will be charged the full price of your session and asked to please reschedule.

  • Please bring a fresh face mask to use while you are in the building, and during your massage. If you do not have a mask, we can provide one for you. All Embody Wellness staff will be wearing a fresh mask as well.

  • You will be asked to wash your hands prior to receiving your massage.

  • If you haven’t already, you’ll be asked to sign that you understand and agree to our new procedures and disclosures.

  • You will then be brought straight to your sanitized session room.

  • You will be required to wear a mask during your session.

    • Please let us know if you prefer to lay face down with modifications to face coverings or if you choose to be in side-lying position with your mask in place.

    • Please let us know if you are uncomfortable at any point so we can make appropriate adjustments

    • Please avoid touching your face during your session

  • After your session, we ask that you please use a tissue to open the door and discard in closest trash can

    • Please proceed directly to the restroom to wash your hands before checking out and scheduling your next session.


We thank you for your understanding as we navigate new industry requirements and work to provide the safest environment for our clients and staff. Your loyalty and trust are so important to us!
