Covid-19 and Variant Specific FAQs

Will I be still be screened before I get my massage?

Yes. Before every treatment, your therapist will ask you questions and take your temperature. If you are sick for whatever reason, please do not come in and rebook when you are feeling better.

If I am experiencing any symptoms, will I be turned away?

In short, yes. Regardless of if you are experiencing COVID–19 and/or variant related symptoms or even just suffering with allergies, we encourage you to stay home when ill. This is not only to prevent the possible spread of infection within our clinic, but massage has been known to exacerbate cold and flu symptoms as well. 

I got vaccinated, does it matter?

While we do not require you to disclose this information, we ask that you do not book within 2 days (48 hours) of getting your vaccination for either dose. This is because the vaccine can create flu-like symptoms which makes it a massage contraindication. 

Am I still required to wear a mask during treatment?

Currently, we are asking our clients to continue wearing masks. As always, if you don’t have one, we can provide one at no charge.

What happens if a therapist or a client tests positive for COVID-19?

While we are taking every precaution possible to greatly reduce the risk of transmission, we understand there is still a risk. Should this happen, we will contact all clients treated within the specified time frame of the positive result, put out a public notice and follow standard outbreak protocolWe will never disclose identifying information about the infected individual

Can someone attend my appointment with me?

No – unless they are there to provide you with physical assistance.

Does Theralleve accept cash payments?

Currently, we are not accepting cash payments. We do offer options for both contactless and PIN based card payments.

General FAQs

When I arrive for my appointment, where should I go?

Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your appointment time. Whether you arrive by car, transit, or foot, we have a shared reception area upstairs. For now, the only access to our clinic is using the door at the top of the wooden steps at the back of the building. Look for the “Wellness on 9th” signs to know you are in the right place.

I drove, where can I park?

We are happy to let you know we have free parking available in the back parking lot, anywhere indicated by “The Apothecary/All Things Jill” signage. Because these spaces are shared with other tenants, please only use for the duration of your appointment. Street parking also available.

Do you have a receptionist?

At this point we do not which means that if we are in treatment, we ask that you please leave a voicemail, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. If you are inquiring about therapist availability/booking an appointment, please click here.
