This page was updated November 20, 2020. Appointments through the end of December are available by following the booking buttons. My schedule for the new year will be available soon.
How will I keep us all as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic? Practice protocols are available below. I encourage you to read through these before your next appointment. Please note, in line with guidance from BC’s Provincial Health Officer, masks are now mandatory for all patients at all times during appointments.

Return to practice protocols (the condensed version for both mothering touch and in-home appointments)
- Protocols aim to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus that causes COVID-19. Due to the hands-on nature of massage therapy treatment, this risk cannot be reduced to zero.
- I will update these protocols as needed to remain in line with the guidance provided by the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia, the Provincial Health Officer, and WorkSafeBC.
- Scheduling appointments at Mothering Touch You may book online here or call (250) 595-4905. New and current patients are welcome to contact me directly with questions or concerns about receiving massage therapy treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic (contact details are below).
- Scheduling in-home appointments Appointments may be booked online by following any ‘book an appointment button’, by phone, by email, or in person. I speak to all new patients over the phone before arriving to the first appointment. Please ask any questions you may have about the risks and benefits of proceeding with massage therapy at that time.
- At the time of booking you will be directed to the BC COVID-19 Symptom Self-Assessment Tool. In order for your appointment to proceed you must confirm that everyone in your household is healthy, that nobody in your household has a confirmed or potential case of COVID-19, that none of you are currently self-isolating due to potential exposure to the virus, and that none of you will have travelled off of Vancouver Island during the 14 days prior to the date of your appointment (if anyone has travelled recently, we will discuss whether or not it is safe for your appointment to proceed).
- You will complete a screening questionnaire within two days of each appointment and at the beginning of each appointment. I may call you to follow up on your responses. I reserve the right to postpone and reschedule your appointment if your health or the health of anyone in your household may be compromised. Cancellation fees are waived when cancellation is due to reasons associated with COVID-19.
- I will be self-screening for symptoms and will not work if my health or the health of anyone in my household may be compromised. In these cases, I will contact 8-1-1 for guidance to help me protect the health of all my patients.
- Physical distancing measures will be in place during non-treatment times.
- Enhanced cleaning, sanitization, and disinfection protocols will be strictly followed in all practice environments.
- Enhanced protocols will also be followed when laundering linens.
- Face touching avoidance and hand hygiene protocols will be strictly followed by both me and you. You will be asked to wash or sanitize your hands before and after the treatment. As is standard practice, I will wash my hands and forearms immediately before and after the treatment.
- I will wear a mask at all times during appointments, and you will also be required to wear a mask at all times during appointments. If wearing a mask negatively affects your health and wellbeing, please discuss your options with me before booking an appointment. I can provide you with a clean single-use mask at your appointment.
- If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me by phone or email (see below). Stay well!
