WA ST State of Emergency Order Ending 10-31-22

Even though Governor Inslee’s state of emergency order and remaining proclamations for COVID 19 are ending 10-31-22, it does not apply to healthcare workers and healthcare facilities. All healthcare providers, healthcare facilities and patients must still mask up in these settings.

Availability: PTPS is booking out between 1-3 months in advance, it varies. We encourage you to please think about pre-scheduling your sessions so not only can you get in, but you can get your time you want. Especially if you are a pain and a post-surgery patient because you may need 1-3 sessions a week. Also, any post plastic surgery recovery work should be booked at time you schedule your surgery in order to make sure you have sessions confirmed. We usually have very few if any same day or same week sessions.

Waitlist: sign up for the waitlist on Jane APP, or text me your full name, cell and email and I can add you for the type of session you need.

Services: Unsure what to book for?

I will simplify it for you here.

Pre/Post Orthopedic Surgery and Plastic Surgery: Manual Lymphatic Drainage 1st and then Neurokinetic Therapy for the scars and getting the muscles back to functioning properly.

Pain: Neurokinetic Therapy 

Sore: Manual and Movement Therapy (Customized Bodywork, deep tissue, Neuromuscular, stretch or others)

Emotional Distress-Stress: Energy Therapy or Manual and Movement Therapy (relaxation massage)

CANCELATION AND RESCHEDULE POLICY CHANGE: Please give a minimum of 72 hours’ notice for all cancelation and reschedules to avoid any fees. We understand sometimes emergencies come up, and we will take into consideration what the situation is if one does not give at least 72-hour notice. We understand that this is more than what other places require and understand you may not like this. We hope you will understand that we have had issues filling spots that have been canceled or rescheduled with 72 hours or less notice, and this has left patients who need a session waiting. We wish we could be able to fill sessions with less notice!  NO Show No Calls will always be a full charge no matter what.

Closed Dates:

  • All national holidays are closed, Christmas through the New Year, New Years Day, Thanksgiving weekend, Memorial weekend, July 4th weekend, and Labor Day weekend.
  • Any continuing education I may have to attend, dates will be announced.
  • Dance Team Events and Vacations

CDC MASK ANNOUNCEMENT: The CDC announced that you could remove your mask if fully vaccinated. Unfortunately, this does not apply to healthcare providers, healthcare facilities, or hospitals (licensed healthcare providers or healthcare facilities are governed by The WA St Department of Health). Even though Governor Inslee dropped the mask mandate, it does not apply to health care workers and healthcare facilities.

Proclamation 20-24.2: All healthcare providers, healthcare facilities, and hospitals fall under Proclamation 20-24.2 and are still required to wear masks; both for staff, and patients, and we must also still follow COVID-19 protocols. Governor Inslee will eventually be announcing what will happen for us, whether we will be required to continue with masks, no masks, and other COVID-19 protocols. Unfortunately, due to the variants, it is unlikely this will happen anytime soon.

So, unfortunately, until the Governor announces changes from the WA STATE Department of Health for Proclamation 20-24.2 in regards to masks, MASKS are still required. As soon as the DOH changes Proclamation 20-24.2, I will let you know, and then masks requirements will be optional if there is no public health emergency mask mandate. Until then, we are still required to do the extra public health emergency protocols.

Availability: PTPS is booking out between 4-8 weeks in advance. We encourage you to please think about pre-scheduling your sessions so not only can you get in, but you can get your time you want. Especially if you are a pain and a post-surgery patient, because you may need 1-3 sessions a week. Also, any post plastic surgery recovery work should be booked at the time you schedule your surgery in order to make sure you have sessions confirmed. We usually have very few, if any same day or same week sessions.

CANCELATION AND RESCHEDULE POLICY CHANGE: Please give at least 72 hours’ notice for all cancelations and reschedules to avoid a full charge. We understand that sometimes emergencies come up, and we will take into consideration what the situation is if one does not give at least 72 hour notice. We understand that this is more than what other places require and understand you may not like this. We hope you will understand that we have had issues filling spots that have been canceled or rescheduled with 48-24 or less notice, and this has left patients who need a session waiting. We wish we could be able to fill sessions within 48-24 hours or less, but unfortunately, this has been an issue since we are normally with patients. NO Show No Calls will always be a full charge no matter what.

Closed Dates:

  • All national holidays are closed, Christmas through the New Year, New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving weekend, Memorial weekend, July 4th weekend, and Labor Day weekend.
