10.4.22 Updates: If not vaccinated you will be required to wear a mask during the entire massage. If you are sick, you will be sent home. Do not come in for a massage if you are sick.
Vaccine card proof must be shown, especially for all new clients.
If you have an issue with wearing a mask, there are plenty of other places to go. This is not a debate, this is just how I run my practice and make it as safe as possible.
I have older clients, and clients that are comprised. I also don't want to get sick. Best we can do is be safe, and wear a mask and be honest. I need to work, if I am sick, I can't make money.
I received my 4th vaccine September 30, 2022
Thank you for understanding.
Safety Protocols: When you enter Massage Kneads Fair Oaks, CA and Salon Nouveau you will fill out an intake form (for new clients). Kimberly, will be wearing a face mask, and apron, changing out the apron and mask after each client. She thoroughly washes her hands and arms before and after each session and uses hand sanitizer. Her equipment is also cleaned and sanitized.
She has proper protection on her table (new sheets, blankets, mask, apron for each customer, table protector), and air purifier, surfaces will be wiped down (door handles, chairs, cabinet top, hangers after each and every session. Items are also sprayed with Lysol. Cups of water will not be provided unless asked for. Hair ties are available upon request, they are one-time use, so throw away when done. Baby wipes, and face wipes will be available for your use if you wish to use them.
Cash will still be accepted, along with checks, credit/debit cards, SpaFinder and SpaWeek gift cards.
Going forward there may be more limited spaces for clients to ensure the safety of people at Massage Kneads, Salon Nouveau, and all clients. This allows for more time to do laundry, and to wipe down services. Please be patient with us as we navigate this new normal for all.
We do not accept insurance. We do not do workman's compensation cases. I can refer to you a practice that does.
At Massage Kneads we help people who suffer from headaches, migraines, neck pain, jaw pain, arm/hand pain, foot/leg pain, and low back pain.
Kimberly offers a relaxing massage that eases your pain, and your problem areas. Treatment plans will be recommended. Do you need to come in once or a week? To get the problem under control to start, yes, more often is more necessary. After your problem areas have been addressed and flair up less, you will be moved to a more maintenance based treatment plan of every 3 weeks or once a month. If you still wish to come in sooner, that is okay too! I am here to make your life more enjoyable and more pain free.
As a valued client you will also be asked to give referrals of people you think would benefit from massage. Is this person a desk jockey who grinds their teeth? Great, I can help with that by working on their neck, scalp, and jaw muscles.
