Massage therapy has long been used to help relieve stress and pain.  At a time like this, where stress is so high, massage therapists have been told to shut down due to COVID.  However, doctors offices are allowed to open with proper sanitation.  We as massage therapist see way less people than a doctor would in a day.  We can follow all protocols needed to stay safe just as well as a doctors office. 

Major chain stores are also able to remain open with proper sanitation protocols and they have well over a hundred people in the store at the same time in any given day.  Airplanes are being filled with people to travel and all they require them to do is practice proper sanitation and social distance.

We as massage therapist should be allowed to work and continue serving people while using proper sanitation.  We can not provide services outdoors with our line of work.  It is cold and people will be at risk of being watched while dressing.  This is invasion of privacy for clients.  

If the concern is the distance between therapist and client, it should not be an issue if the ventilation is in place inside the room with an air purifier or window, masks, face shields along with proper sanitation all around.  Thank you for your time.
