CDC Mask Announcement

I hope you are doing fantastic! Going to be short and sweet in regards to the CDC mask announcement and other items.

CDC MASK ANNOUNCEMENT: The CDC announced yesterday that you could remove your mask if fully vaccinated within 2 weeks. Unfortunately, this does not apply to healthcare providers, healthcare facilities, hospitals, and airports. Even though Governor Inslee dropped the mask mandate, too, unfortunately, it does not apply to any licensed healthcare provider or healthcare facility because we are governed by The WA St Department of Health.

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, 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.

So, unfortunately, until the Governor announces changes from 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 you are vaccinated. Until then, we are still required to do the extra public health emergency protocols, so there will still be a $10 per session surcharge (CPT 99072 which you can submit to your insurance), but eventually, that will be dropped on September 7th, 2021.

Fees: We are making changes to our rates per hour and our program of care that will go into effect September 7th, 2021 for all existing and any new patients. The new rate has been announced via our newsletter, and will be updated in the online booking and on the website September 6th 2021 . Hopefully, it will not affect you at all.

Availability: PTPS is booking out between 1-3-5 weeks, So, 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.

Waitlist: sign up for the waitlist on Genbook. Services: Unsure what to book for?

I will simplify it for you here.

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

Pain: Neurokinetic Therapy or Touch for Health

Sore: Customized Bodywork, deep tissue, Neuromuscular, or others

Emotional Distress-Stress: Touch for Health or relaxation

NEW CANCELATION AND RESCHEDULE POLICY CHANGE: Please give at least 48 hours notice for all cancelation and reschedules to avoid a full charge. We understand sometimes emergencies come up, and we will take into consideration what the situation is if one does not give at least 48 hours’ 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 24 or less notice, and this has left patients who need a session waiting. We wish we could be able to fill sessions with 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 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.
  • Vacations

So, that is it from me. If you need to book a session, use the link above. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me via email. I look forward to seeing you soon!

Thank you,
