Mitigation protocols for safe massage practices at KOUYATE HEALING ARTS

At Kouyate Healing Arts there is nothing more important than implementing new protocols in order to keep you safe! We are concerned about your health and wellness and certainly want to do everything possible, so that you can receive the benefits of our therapeutic offerings!

Upon arrival, all clients are obligated to wear a mask, as well as your therapist. You will be asked to wash your hands thoroughly upon arrival as well. A special intake/waiver will need to be filled out, and your temperature will be taken. Your therapists temp will be visually posted for you.

Our treatment rooms have both Blueair filters, HEPA filters, whole building system fans, and tabletop fans running. Windows are slightly open for ventilation and treatments will take place with the actual treatment door open, while the front door to the studio remains locked. We have taken many measures to ensure clean air and plenty of ventilation.

Our treatment tables are covered with plastic so the bed can be sanitized. We also use disposable face cradle covers to avoid reusable ones. Our sheets are sent out to a medical grade facility, where they use disinfecting chemicals to launder. Extreme high heat is used to dry them. Our sheets are stored in extra heavy duty garbage bags that remain closed at all times, and no longer sits in the treatment room while receiving your session. Soiled laundry is placed in another room, and again, closed at all times.

All surfaces are FULLY sanitized between clients. Doorknobs, clothes hooks, the treatment table, face cradle, bolster, bathroom knobs, faucet handles, toilet seat, waiver signing pens, and my phone. We are Only using EPA grade disinfectants that they have recommended because they actually work on covid-19. We now have 45 minutes between clients to ensure proper airing out of the space and allows for no overlap of clients coming and going at the same time. Only 1 therapist is working at a time with their clients, rather than sharing the studio.

We will not come to work if We have any cold symptoms, and we ask that our clients do the same! We all need to be responsible for this healing environment, as a community.

We diffuse an essential oil called thieves all day as it’s an anti microbial, anti-viral, bacterial and fungal for the air.

We have eliminated the use of reusable hand towels in the bathroom and now use paper towels to dry. There is no longer water offered after the massage, but of course if you are super parched, I have disposable paper cups and the bathroom faucet if you really need some water.

Your safety and comfort is our primary concern. We have followed Michigan’s licensing board, and massage associations guidelines to return safely to massage. We look forward to serving you, and we are open to suggestions of things that you would like to implement that you have not seen listed here.

This is a total day of YOU! We will customize a healing that’s about 5 hours long and is meant to direct, heal, uplift, and get clarity and focus on your life. We will do some core issue work and then move into the events of the day. These can vary widely based on your personal needs, spiritual direction, and emotional needs. The world is ours here and this VIP day is a shapeshifter and gamechanger in your life path. Prices vary and start at $500 for a personal customized day with me as your facilitator.


Portable Ceremony

Do you have a circle of women to bring a healing ceremony to? I offer a Purification, Fireside and tea, blessing way for new life (spirit baby shower), planting new visions, midwifing a spirit into the afterlife (or a memorial type ceremony) or a personal ceremony that we craft based on your needs or the needs of your community circle. Let’s discuss each of these options in detail together, Costs are dependant on group size and location start at $425


I AM Presence Playshops

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION PLAYSHOP, we will discover the very reasons why we do not speak our hearts truth. Learn about the blockages to the freedom of expressing what’s inside of you, and dance with live drumming to move the charged and perhaps repressed energy out of the body. Bring your true nature up and out to reveal the hidden pearl within you! SONG, RHYTHM, and MOVEMENT embodiment to help you learn the tools to living a vitally expressed life!

FLOW POUR PLAYSHOP, I often here people say these thing….I’m not an artist, “I’m not creative”. I could not disagree more with these statements. I will lead you through an amazing intentional paint project to unleash the creative flow in your life. This piece will make you proud and you WILL realize your artistic potential. We will draw oracle cards and go through a meditation to have your animal totems, goddess guides or other guidance discovered! We will incorporate these totems into your healing piece of art that you take home!

SONG CIRCLE PLAYSHOP. We will utilize the power of your voice and unify all voices as one. A true sense of community and oneness is embodied when voices unite as one. There is total power here, oxytocin releases when our voices harmonize as one. I will lead an intention song circle with songs that are all about upliftment and the sacred remembrance of our souls. Many songs have been created by myself in meditations.

Costs depend on size and location. Starts at $650 which includes all supplies and guest practitioners (drummer, paint supplies, and such)
