We have got guidance from our licences' governing bodies, that we as healthcare professionals are still required to keep wearing masks during treatments, after masking mandate is lifted for the public by Ministry of Health of Ontario starting from March 21st, 2022.

 

Clients/patients may hold different views on masking, so we as service providers will conduct proper risk assessment.

 

Therefore, after March 21, 2022, in our clinic, our staff will keep masks on and you as clients/patients are free to choose coming in with masks on or off, unless you show any covid signs/symptoms and we have to triage you out of our premises , cancel the booking and assist you for further medical help and/or report to health authority. We all must wear masks in this scenario. Thanks for understanding. Our top priority is safety and wellbeing of all of you!

About direct billing, please be noted:

(1) Our clinic has been registered with the majority of the insurance companies, and our clients usually have us to direct bill for them every time they visit us.

(2) If you are not covered 100%, you have to cover the part outside your coverage at your visit to us.

(3) If you are required by your insurer to provide supporting documents (ex. doctor's referral note) and you do not have it with you at your first visit to us, we can not direct bill and next time you are back to us with the documents with you, we can direct bill for you from then. Therefore, we strongly recommend you check with your insurance company or your plan brochure about detail of your coverage (what is the percentage you are cover, doctor's referral note required, etc.) before you book with us.

We Keep Open!

To preserve system capacity during Ontario’s third wave of COVID-19, the province has updated Directive #2 to cease all non-emergency and non-urgent surgeries and procedures, effective immediately. This update to Directive #2 does not directly impact Massage Therapists (MTs/RMTs).

Wearing eye protection (e.g. goggles or face shield) is strongly recommended for RMTs, so please feel free to come in with any facial protection. Mask is required; other facial protection will also be accepted along with mask.

Conducting risk assessments before every treatment to ensure the anticipated benefits of treatment outweigh risks to the client and the RMT is required. Therefore, you will go through COVID-19 assessment questionnaire and body temperature check.
