Important Client Information


COVID-19 Return to Work Required Protocols for Massage Therapy


Mandated by the 


Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness


in conjunction with the


Massage Therapist’ Association of Nova Scotia


For your convenience, I am providing a distilled version of the requirements that clients must follow in order to receive massage therapy treatment in the context of COVID-19.


Pre-Screening and Appointment Booking

  • Clients are required to answer COVID-19 related pre-screening questions at the time of booking, 24 hours before the treatment, as well as in person at the time of treatment

  • Your appointment time may change in order to ensure that there is 30 minutes between patients


At the time of appointment

  • Arrive not more than 5 minutes early for your appointment

  • Go wash your hands when entering the clinic and then proceed directly to the treatment room (do not use the waiting area)

  • Avoid using the washroom other than to wash your hands

  • In the unlikely event that there is more than one patient at the clinic, practice social distancing (2 metres)

  • Clients are required to wear a mask in order to limit the exhalation of particles and therefore limit the risk of transmission to the therapist


Other notes:

  • Bring your own water if you desire

  • Please limit the amount of surfaces that you are touching, place your belonging on the chair

  • Bring your own yoga mat and props (blocks, strap)


Some measure in place for me as a therapist:

  • Disinfecting procedures between clients

  • New furnitures and/or protection of surfaces to be able to properly disinfect

  • Increased time between patients

  • Wearing a mask

  • etc.
