Reopening Guidelines

We are happy to announce that shiatsu sessions will resume at Zen Shiatsu in mid-June, in a limited staggered schedule.  We have put extensive safety protocols in place to ensure the safety of our clients and practitioners, following the guidelines of Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois plan and professional bodywork organizations.  These include mutual mask use, staggered appointment times that avoid overlap of entry/exit times for clients, and meticulous on-site disinfection protocols.

You will be asked to please put a credit card on file so that cash or check payments can be avoided at this time.  Additionally, we want to make sure that all clients who are at an elevated risk for COVID-19 complications make an informed decision about returning to treatment.  If you are at high-risk and have been limiting your exposure in other settings, you may want to consider avoiding elective procedures such as shiatsu at this time.

We have our safety procedures itemized for your review and a one-time acknowledgement and waiver must be signed before your first appointment.  You will be asked to perform a brief screening interview and temperature check prior to each appointment, and sign a standard waiver form at each visit.
