Health History and Consent to Care
Prior to their first visit, all clients are required to complete a new client packet in full—including client information, health history, consent to care and liability release—and agree to adhere to Iron Bird policies, prior to receiving treatment or consult. Please arrive to your first session with your completed paperwork.
Clients are required to keep their practitioner apprised of any updates or changes to their health history and client information, including address changes, new health concerns and emergency contact person, and may be asked to complete the new client packet on a yearly basis.
COVID-19 Pre- and Post-Screening Procedures
With current COVID-19 concerns, all clients will be screened by email 24 hours prior to and 48 hours after receiving treatment in person. A response to the screening questions must be submitted at least 24 hours prior to arriving at Iron Bird. Failure to do so will require the session to be canceled and the client to be responsible for the missed session fee.
Screening questions will include information about your assessment of risks in choosing to receive bodywork, whether you and/or those you live with have been sick or exposed to sickness in the last 14 days, travel outside of the state by you and/or those you live with in the last 30 days and your willingness to wear a mask during treatment.
If it is found that someone exposed to COVID-19 has been within Iron Bird, the practice will immediately close for a minimum of 14 days and all affected parties will be notified.

With current COVID-19 concerns, advance notice of sickness or exposure to sickness is especially critical and required. If it is found that someone exposed to COVID-19 has been within Iron Bird, the practice will immediately close for a minimum of 14 days and all affected parties will be notified.
Clothing and Masks
Thai traditional bodywork is performed with the client fully clothed. Please choose clothing that is neither too tight nor too loose. Please avoid nylon and other slippery fabrics. There are a few procedures that require removal of some clothing. In these cases, appropriate draping will be used.
During a typical session, it is very likely that herbal balms, liniments or compresses will be applied over or under clothing, potentially staining fabric. Please wear clothing that is appropriate for herbal applications, comfort and movement during your session. If you have questions or concerns, please advise your practitioner in advance.
With current COVID-19 concerns, all clients will be required to wear a mask or cloth face covering during treatment and will be required to bring a fresh shirt and pants to change into before receiving treatment.
We always treat the people coming to our practice with respect and consideration. Our goal is always to provide excellent customer service. However, we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at anytime for any reason.
