OPENING DOORS
June 4, 2020


Dear Friends, Clients and Students,


Governor Scott gave the go ahead for my profession to return to practicing as of June 1.  I have spoken with several people who practice in the healing professions, acupuncturists, massage therapists, naturopaths, psychotherapists, healers of different sorts to see how everybody is doing, and what is being done to allow us to come together with ease and safety.  There are certain protocols that have been deemed necessary by the State of Vermont and are stated as safe practice by the Association of Bodywork and Massage Professionals and I will state them below.  Essentially we need to tread lightly, pay attention and be careful with each other.


Some of you are ready to come back and I will be welcoming you two days a week to start.
The sessions will be spaced 30-60 minutes apart so that the room can air out and the surfaces can be cleaned. I have acquired a HEPA air filter.  All hard surfaces will be cleaned after each session.


When you call (522-5032/229-4671) or email jansandman@comcast.net to make your appointment,  please self screen yourself by asking the following questions:


Have I had a fever in the last 24 hours, flu like symptoms, sore throat, cough,  shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, been diagnosed with Covid 19, been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed or has the symptoms of Covid 19 in the past two weeks?


On the day of your appointment, please take your temperature that morning to assure that you are fever free. Please come with your own mask which will be worn in the building and throughout the appointment.  When you arrive for your appointment, please call or text me (522-5032).  I will come out of the building and greet you, with my mask on, ask you the same questions as the ones stated above.  Make sure I have your cell phone number and if you don’t have a cell phone, let me know ahead of time, and I will just come out at the designated time and greet you.


We will then go into the building  together and either wash hands or use hand sanitizer and go into my office.  Please bring your own water bottle.  I would prefer to settle payment and rescheduling at the beginning of the session if possible.  My rates are the same: sliding scale of $160-200 for the two hour session, based on self-determined financial capacity.


While my  24 hour cancellation policy remains the same, if you should develop symptoms of illness within that 24 hour window, there will be no charge for cancelling.
I am expecting that as the presence of the virus resolves, these protocols will change as well. But this is what they are as we begin.  Let’s see how it feels.


For those of you who are not ready to return, I have been offering sessions by Zoom and Facebook that have been very effective.  I am also offering Constellation work privately and private Authentic Movement sessions in the Movement Studio on Granite Street where I normally offer Authentic Movement classes and group Constellation workshops.  This space is very large and airy and with enough distance between us, which is very possible, it is possible at times to have masks off.The regular classes and workshops have not yet resumed but will at some point .


Please reach out with any questions or concerns.  I look forward to reconnecting.
Always,
Jan
