The Bailey Therapeutic Massage treatment and waiting room are
now equipped with a
Surgically Clean Air hospital grade Jade2.0 SCA5000C air purification system to
protect you and your therapist from COVID and other air born viruses.
This multi-stage filtration system effectively pre-filters the air which then
flows through a HEPA-Rx filter and an activated carbon filter. The air is
purified with exposure to a high intensity ultraviolet lamp, and a titanium
dioxide catalyst. Finally, the air is revitalized with negative ions which are
known to supply more oxygen to the brain and increase alertness and energy.
Before, during and after your massage treatment the Jade air purifying machine
will be in service.
Massage and assisted stretching sessions will be scheduled with
at least two hours left open between clients to ensure the rooms and air have
been fully sanitized and safe for your treatment.

Beginning with the
premise that the body wants to be well and will do all it can to be well,
we work with clients to help them reach and maintain that wellness they
seek, be it stress relief, pain relief or some other change.
At Bailey Therapeutic Massage I treat the whole
person, not just muscles and other soft tissue. I encourage my clients to
take personal responsibility for their health, and I assist each client by
offering suggestions for taking an active role in achieving and maintaining
their own wellness.
I work closely with other Health
Professionals in the area in an effort to help clients obtain maximum
results. It is often through this sharing of expert knowledge and approach that
clients achieve the wellness they seek and deserve.
