Re-Balanced Bodies has been proudly endorsed by AMT as a "clean air clinic".

Covid-19 risks are high due to widespread community transmission. Remedial Massage involves close physical contact for long periods of time in a small, indoor space, so there may be an increased risk of Covid-19 transmission.

Assess your own personal Covid-19 risk before every appointment, especially if you (or your household/close contacts) are in a high risk group.

Covid-19 isolation exemptions for critical essential workers include remedial massage. Safety is our highest priorty and Jodie will NOT provide remedial massage if her household has Covid-19.

TREATING MINORS:

A parent or legal guardian must be present for duration of treatment of minors under 18.
During Covid-19, physical distancing requirements may not allow for another person to be present so there may be times when I am unable to treat minors. Thank you for your understanding.
