I am hoping you could help me with answer.
I have a membership to Massage En y and have like 10 massages but clearly stoped going in April when I started taking serious the Coronavirus.
I’m 56y old but I have weak immune system and other health risks. I would lo e to go back to get some needed messages but I am s scared of becoming I’ll.
I ha e to trust that the staff is really cleaning 100% but on top of that I don’t know how to take the person who is literally making contact with my skin cause how else can you message..
Would you recommend going to message and if so under what provisions..
Thanks if you can help

Hi there, Peter:
I am sorry I missed this comment because my notifications stopped working. By now you might have made your decision.
I think shared airspace is a real concern right now. Not just cleaning of surfaces, but the client and therapist breathing the same air for a time, and perhaps virus left in the air after previous sessions and poor ventilation/filtration.
At least one state has capped the massage session time at 30 minutes. This suggests some real concern with length of time sharing air. Does capping at 30 make both participants safe? For sure, the risk is not zero!
I would be even more concerned about this if I had any kind of immunocompromise.
I am not currently getting bodywork, if that is any indication. So my practice is on pause, and my personal practice of receiving close-contact services.
I hope that is helpful. Best of luck.
