Special to the
Opelika Observer

It goes without saying that these are unprecedented times. You have probably missed massage. The licensed, independent contractors have missed massaging! These exceptional people are both nervous and excited to begin work in this new environment.

Please be patient and help us adapt to this new way of massage life. When you arrive, stay in your car and we’ll text you when to come inside. We must ensure that there will be only one therapist and one client at a time in the common areas. We will maintain 6 feet distancing until your massage commences.

New Health and Safety Standards:

Better Bodies Massage is committed to taking a leadership position in instituting processes and protocols to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

We know that offering massage services to our massage family is more critical now than at any other time in our history. COVID-19 isolation and uncertainty have impacted our collective mental health and widespread depression is a genuine global concern.

Better Bodies Massage has always been committed to providing a clean and safe environment for you to relax and restore. During the COVID-19 crisis, we have reinforced those steps and added additional measures. Cleanliness will continue to be a focus moving forward.

Among the steps we are taking:

• Thoroughly cleaning treatment rooms, tools, bathrooms and common areas at a minimum of once every hour

• Using disinfectants throughout the clinic and specifically in each treatment room

• Service providers will wear gloves during services upon client request

• BBM will provide pre-service therapist health checks

• Clients and therapists will wear masks at all times and

• A contact-lite transaction process which includes our established digital forms and online booking.

Linens are single service use as always! We change sheets and face covers always after each client. We wash at high temperatures with a bleach-based product to minimize transmission risk, as is recommended by various public health authorities.
