Covid-19 Response

Homegrown Yoga and Massage has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 Pandemic and implications for massage therapy since March 11, 2020. Massage services were not offered throughout the Winter 20/21. Services will open May 15th. Many steps and inherent attributes of the massage cabin are in place to help protect people from COVID-19 spread. Our massage cabin is well ventilated with open air (but not cold!) and an air filter runs in the treatment room. The Therapist wears a face mask and a face shield. Clients are required to wear a substantial face mask (not a bandana) and the nose and mouth must be covered during the entire massage according to current regulations.

There continues to be risk at this time with COVID-19, particularly when you are within 6 feet of another person for an extended period of time. In addition to ventilation, social distancing and mask wearing, we do know that vaccines are highly effective at protecting people from the virus, yet not a guarantee. All therapists are vaccinated and have passed through the wait time for protection. We also understand the many wonderful benefits of massage and know people are hankering for an awesome massage at this time in particular. In an effort to keep everyone safe, we will continue to monitor COVID-19, risks for massage profession, and pertinent Colorado laws to keep up to date with all regulations. We of course check symptoms and take temperatures before every massage and take contact information for contact tracing purposes by law. We want to remain open, provide a beneficial health promoting service and continue to keep all clients safe and healthy. We are here to serve you.

Welcome!
