As universal masking mandates have ended, you may not be aware that the WA Department of Health still mandates masking for all providers, staff, patients, and visitors at all healthcare facilities. Any location where a licensed healthcare provider comes into contact with patients, is considered a healthcare facility. Licensed Massage Therapists are considered healthcare providers in the state of Washington and are explicitly included in this mandate from the Department of Health.
You may also have heard that the office of the Governor of Washington is ending its state of emergency as well as numerous regulatory emergency orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This does not include the mandate for masking in healthcare settings, which comes from the Department of Health and is within their normal healthcare regulatory powers, not the emergency powers granted to the office of the Governor by the declared state of emergency.
Please bring a mask to your massage appointments; if you forget or you don't have one, we will provide you with a disposable mask which you will be required to wear during your appointment. Thank you for your understanding.
Also; massage prices will be increasing on January 1st of 2023. It will be a $5 increase. Please be aware that any gift cards purchased are redeemable for the value on the card, not redeemable for a particular service. If your gift card will no longer have enough value to pay the full price of your session, you can still redeem it for the value on the gift card and pay the difference at time of service by cash, check, or credit card.
If you have credit on your account from a Samurai Membership or Ronin Package, you can still redeem the credit at the 2022 price until March 1st, 2023. After that date, you will still be able to redeem the credit but will be billed at the new 2023 member rate.
If you have any questions about masking or the price increase, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
