Covid19 Safety

How I am keeping you safe at Relaxation Massage for Women in Kapiti

Thank you for considering making a booking at my massage studio in Paraparumu.

In these uncertain times you might be wondering ‘Will I be safe from a Covid 19 infection if I come and see Omnoi for a massage?

It is perfectly normal to be concerned about that, and that is why I have created this page to put your mind at ease about your safety at my studio.

You will see I’m going above and beyond to keep you safe.

Firstly, all surfaces that you may touch are regularly sprayed and wiped with high-grade disinfectant. All sheets, towels and fabrics used are washed at 90 degrees’ temperature to ensure sterilisation in line with WHO recommendations.

I’ve invested in a UVC Hospital Germicidal Light, it is a UV Disinfection lamp like they use in hospitals to sterilise and disinfect hospital rooms, beds and equipment.

I switch this on for 30 minutes in the morning and also in between each client visit, it destroys 99.99% of bacteria and viruses in the massage room.

Naturally I wash and disinfect my hands regularly.

Let me briefly mention some additional general guidelines:

While New Zealand currently still remains a low risk with a comparatively small number of cases and little community transmission yet, it is still important that you keep yourself and others safe.

If you are well and you have not been in contact with anyone who is sick, and have not returned from overseas travel within the last 14 days, then it’s fine for you to make a booking and come see me for a Relaxation Massage.

If you have been overseas within the last 14 days, please delay booking a massage appointment until after that time.

If you have a massage booked with me and you are sick on the day – for example

  • you have a cold,
  • a cough or a sore throat,
  • you suffer from the sniffles,
  • are sneezing or have a runny nose,
  • you’re running a fever, have respiratory symptoms,
  • or you have a gastrointestinal bug or have diarrhoea etc –

Then I ask that you kindly cancel your appointment.

In case you feel a bit unsure about whether you should turn up for your massage appointment, just give me a quick call and we have a chat.

Having a massage when you are sick will worsen how badly you feel already, especially if you are coughing, sneezing or have a runny nose. It won’t be an enjoyable or beneficial massage – and you don’t want that!

By cancelling your massage, you avoid passing anything on to me and also other clients, which helps to reduce the spread of infection.

Please be aware that I reserve the right to turn clients away who turn up to an appointment when sick. This is to help minimise any community transmission of COVID-19 or any other illness like the common cold or flu of course.

If you do suspect that you have Coronavirus, please call Healthline free on 0800 358 5453 in the first instance, rather than turning up at your GP or hospital. They will give you advice on what to do.

So, to summarise it:

If you are sick – stay home, rest, keep hydrated, look after yourself, phone your GP or Healthline if you are unsure or concerned about your symptoms.

You can rebook your massage for a later date when you have recovered, and you will enjoy it so much more!

I will do my very best to keep you safe at my massage studio with the various safety measures and procedures I have outlined at the top of the page.

Together we will make your session at Relaxation Massage for Women in Kapiti an enjoyable, relaxing and safe experience. Please call me on 021 – 123 4459 to make your booking now. I look forward to seeing you soon!
