COVID-19 UPDATE – Jackson County has issued guidelines for personal service businesses such as Signature Massage. We are required to follow the standards they have put in place. Upon arrival you will notice the following changes: 1. First and foremost, if you are ill, have had a fever, cough or a respiratory issue within the last week, please stay at home and reschedule your massage. A 24-hour advance notice would be greatly appreciated. 2. The door will be locked. You will need to stay in your car until your therapist is ready for you and welcomes you into the facility. NOTE: NEW CLIENTS ONLY…..the new client Intake Form is available for you to complete online ahead of time. Please refer to the sidebar on the home page and scroll down until you see it. (Hint: under the Make An Appointment button). Complete the form, print it off and bring it with you to your appointment. If you wish to complete onsite, the intake form will be in the mailbox adjacent to the front door…..please arrive at least 10 minutes earlier than your scheduled appointment to complete. 3. Therapists and clients must wear a mask. It is recommended you bring your own mask. If you arrive without a mask, one will be made available for your use. 4. You will be required to sanitize your hands before and after your massage treatment. We apologize for any inconvenience to you as a result of these new guidelines. Our goal is to provide a relaxing yet safe environment for you during your massage while at the same time abiding by the local guidelines. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated as we continue to pray for our nation and community during this challenging time in history.
NOTE: Updated Booking Guidelines. We cannot stress enough the importance of booking ahead of time (preferably at the end of an appointment) to ensure you get your preferred day and time slot. Evenings, Thursday, Friday and Saturdays have become prime appointment times. As a courtesy to other clients wanting to get in and to our therapists, we would GREATLY appreciate a 24 hour notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. Currently, all evening appointments after 4:45 are only available to existing clients and can only be booked through Ellen directly or by calling our office. Thank you so much for your patronage and never hesitate to call or text Ellen directly at 816-525-7171 if you have any questions regarding your appointment, services, the scheduling process and/or if you are having a hard time getting in during a particular time frame.
