Current Covid Precautions and Policies

During this stage of living in a covid environment (updated August 9, 2021), masks are still required regardless of vaccination status; only local North Island residents will receive care at Functional Massage Therapy, (including the connecting Gulf islands). Those that have travelled or had social contact outside of the North Island region (south of Bowser and beyond) will have to wait 2 weeks before seeking care from Functional Massage Therapy. This tight travel policy will remain in place until active cases on the Island drop below 40 again. Illness remains a cause for rescheduling, including caring for someone ill (covid symptoms). Patients need to confirm the above via a 2 day email reminder.

Leslie Clisby takes her role in your health care seriously by not interacting with anyone ill or experiencing a potential covid symptom. Leslie is committed to staying within our local health authority during this pandemic and not hosting anyone from outside of VIHA. She wears a mask while inside any facility or business. She remains the sole person working at Functional Massage Therapy to reduce complications from coworkers travelling.

The clinic door is locked to reduce the number of people in the clinic and to ensure masks are worn. Patients are asked to wash their hands upon entering the clinic and at the completion of their massage. Hand sanitizer is available at the front desk. The clinic is disinfected between each appointment, including chairs, taps, pens, counters etc. Receipts are emailed. Air purifiers are in place in the reception area and in the treatment room. A creative solution for those uncomfortable wearing a mask while face down involves using a pillow case as a “wind sock” draped through the face piece hole.

Functional Massage Therapy appreciates your cooperation and honesty with the protocols in place to keep you safe while you seek essential care!
