Beginning on Thursday, November 12, 2020, and for a minimum of 4 weeks, the Winnipeg Metropolitan region will be elevated to Critical.
This means a lot of changes for the people of Manitoba. We want to reach out and remind you that we are still here for you in this extremely trying time.
There are no new restrictions being implemented at either the Orange or Red levels that impact Health Professionals, and Massage Therapists (RMTs) however we will still be upholding the highest level of safety and cleaning procedures to ensure the safety of our clients and our staff.
We are making some slight changes to procedures that we currently have in place for your safety and the safety of our staff.
We still ask that you complete the COVID-19 screening prior to your appointment and you may also visit Shared Health – Soins Commun Manitoba’s online screening.
If you or anyone in your family tests positive or have COVID-19 symptoms (e.g., fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath), we kindly ask that you refrain from booking or we will gladly reschedule your appointment once you have been given the ‘all clear’ from your medical doctor.
We have adjusted our cancellation policy based on COVID related cancellations and rebookings. We still kindly ask that if you can not make your appointment that day that you please call us. We worry about your safety if you do not show up without notice.

Our washrooms will be disinfected in between each use.
