King County was approved to move into Modified Phase 1 of WA State Safe Start. Though King County is not yet eligible to move into Phase 2, as of today, June 5th, King County has been approved to move into a Modified Phase 1.  (Read here for a breakdown of the four phases of Washington State’s Safe Start Plan). This means the opening of a variety of personal services including Master Estheticians and other services such as Hairstylists, Barbers,, Manicurists, Tattoo Artists, and more.

We are currently working with our Master Esthetician Jeannine Black in order to come up with procedures for skincare treatments that align with CDC and L&I recommendations. 

If you would like to be placed on the waitlist for skincare treatments once Jeannine returns, please reply to this message with your name and contact number. We still at the current moment have not hired any new massage therapists, though our massage therapist, Amber Hickman is hoping to return later this month. The return dates of Arlene Hills and Melanie Salazar are still pending. We will contact the patients on our massage waitlist as soon as we either hire a new massage therapist or any of our massage therapists return.
