Fall is (almost) Here!

Thank you to all for your continued support and patronage!

As we inch closer to the fall, I wanted to re-iterate how much the past few months have inspired and encouraged me. With everyone's positive outlook on the challenges we have been facing collectively in our ever changing world, I am grateful to share and engage in meaningful conversations with all.

As the days begin shortening, leaves start changing, and cooler temperatures lie ahead, I look forward to continuing to provide a safe and positive experience to the best of my abilities in the months (and hopefully years) ahead.

Thank you to everyone for being supportive of and following all of these new procedures and protocols that will best ensure the utmost safety of us all. It has been truly uplifting and exciting being able to get back to doing what I enjoy.

Phase 3 Re-Opening Update

Last month we entered Phase 3 of Ontario's reopening plan and Studio One has welcomed back personal training clients and trainers. We thank everyone for continuing to adhere to the protocols put in place to protect  each other (which are outlined below). We are following the guidelines of the city of Ottawa and the Ontario MOH.

If you have yet to return for a visit and want to familiarize yourself with what we are doing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, please scroll down and read the health and safety measures section below.

As Phase 3 of Ontario's reopening plan, fitness centres are now able to open with safety measures in place. Prevention measures as well as contact tracing information collection is also being done in the event of a possible positive COVID case.

We aim to do our very best to provide a safe and welcoming environment.

Please be patient and courteous with others and allow only one person to use the stairs when entering or exiting. Also, please continue bringing in and wearing your mask. It is greatly appreciated.

Our plan continues to promote safety for all who visit the studio. Safety measures include:

- Mandatory masks upon entry into the studio - staff and clients

- Physical Distancing of at least 6ft (2 meters) 

- Hand sanitizer stations at the entrances

- Health screening for all who enter  - symptoms, contact with possible case, travel

- Staff will self screen for symptoms, contact with possible case, travel

- I will continue to provide 20 minute spaces between appointments and limit wait time for clients to enter upon arrival. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding and I look forward to continuing to provide care to all in a safe and responsible manner.

Massage/FST Delivered to You

As a reminder,  I wanted to let patients know that I do in fact do home visits upon request! Although I do not have a booking feature that allows for online booking for home visits, please do not hesitate to contact me by email for a request. 

Health and Safety measures that are in place for Home Visits:
  • Therapist will arrive with equipment pre-sanitized and wearing fresh clothing and a mask .
  • Therapist will provide all linens, equipment other than pillows.
  • Patients are required to sanitize their hands and also wear a mask for the duration of the treatment.
  • Patients (and household members that may be present) are screened online prior to arrival and again on arrival. 
Inquire About Home Visits

Rocktape Kinesiotaping

Kinesiotaping is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. 

Kinesiotaping can help:
- Improve and re-educate posture
- Support joints, aiding in regaining full Range of Motion
- Reduce swelling
- Cue exercise form
- Reduce Pain

Ask if kinesiotaping is recommended for your treatment or if you have any questions about it. 

Keaton uses Rocktape, which is a latex free, long lasting product he has used for many years. 


Health and Safety Measures in Place

The Province of Ontario and the Ministry of Health has granted Regulated Health Practitioners permission to gradually and responsibly reopen their practices, following strict health measures and guidelines set out.
Because of the risk factors and how (COVID-19) is transmitted, measures will be put in place to reduce risks as much as possible especially to those most vulnerable.
One of these measures include wearing face masks. The Chief Medical Officer of Canada recommends face masks, and that they do in fact help to reduce the risk of transmission when used correctly.

Procedure/measures that will be implemented in addition to existing cleaning/disinfecting include:

- Pre-Appointment screening 1-2 days prior to appointment (By email)
- Screening at the appointment prior to treatment
- 20 Minute Gaps between appointments (This will allow for sufficient time for client departure, extra sanitizing measures)
- Personal Protective Equipment - Surgical mask will be worn by the therapist.
- Patients will be asked to wear masks (Please bring your own mask - reusable or single use) If you do not have one you will be provided with one at no cost
- Therapist will ensure proper hand hygiene as well as change clothing in between patients to eliminate risk of cross contamination / contact transmission.
- Patients will be asked to arrive on-time (no earlier than 5 minutes prior) and come by yourself for your appointment
- Patient should sanitize or wash hands upon arrival - both options are provided.
- Social Distancing - 6ft (2 metres) in the building, outside of treatment time (During intake, interview, post treatment)
- We will remove all items that cannot be sanitized to further reduce risk of contact transmission.
