Cleaning Practices at The Barefoot Dragonfly LLC

Last updated: 12/28/2023

All visitors to The Barefoot Dragonfly LLC studio deserve a clean and hygienic space to participate in lessons and/or receive aromatherapy or reflexology treatments. We have the following practices in place to provide quality wellness services to all who visit the studio in-person.

  • Fresh air ventilation is prioritized year-round, exchanging stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air. Carbon dioxide (CO2) sensors are kept on hand to guide air exchange practices.

  • Air Cleaners are run to achieve a minimum of 12 filtered air changes per hour while in the studio. We do not use ozone or ionizing air cleaning technology which could prove harmful to the lungs.

  • EPA registered disinfectants for emerging viral pathogens, namely hypochlorous acid and thymol disinfectants, are used on contact surfaces, equipment, and tools.

  • Linens are washed in ultra hot water, detergents free of dyes and synthetic fragrances, and EPA registered disinfectants; tumbled in a hot air dryer, and stored in cabinets between uses.

  • Practitioner stays up to date on immunizations recommended for wellness practitioners including: seasonal Influenza and COVID-19 boosters, Tdap, MMR, Hep B, Varicella. Nutrition, botanical medicine, stress management, sleep, and fitness are prioritized for overall wellness and immune support.

Hygiene Practices

Hand hygiene is practiced routinely through the use of hand washing with soap and warm water, and the use of hand sanitizer gel or foam. Compromised skin is appropriately covered (e.g. bandaid over a blister, a finger cot on the finger with knuckle fissure, liquid bandage on a paper cut, etc…).

Infection Control Practices

The studio has a minimum of 12 equivalent air changes per hour when occupied and can go over 21 equivalent air changes per hour to “flush” the room between clients. The use of EPA approved disinfectants for emerging viral pathogens are used on contact surfaces, tools, and equipment. Linens are laundered using detergents, disinfectants, and heat.

Symptom Screening

Reflexology and aromatherapy treatments, as well as practicum lessons and workshops involve close contact. Please do not come to the studio if you are sick. This includes: diarrhea, vomiting, fever, sore throat, cough, head lice, pink eye – or who have recently been diagnosed and/or suspected with norovirus, covid-19, measles, lice, chickenpox, conjunctivitis, monkeypox, staphylococcal or streptococcal infection, upper or lower respiratory virus, whooping cough, or other communicable illness.

Appointments for reflexology and aromatherapy treatments can be changed to a virtual appointment. You will not be penalized with the 24 hour Cancellation Policy fee if you wake up the morning of your appointment feeling unwell and wish to cancel or reschedule.

Practicum lessons and workshops can be made up at a later time via one-on-one tutoring for a fee, or by joining the next cohort.

Good Manufacturing Practices

Botanical formulations are prepared using evidence-informed practices to reduce cross-contamination. Labware, tools, and equipment are cleaned and disinfected prior to use. Raw ingredients are handled using food service handling best practices.

Practitioner Health

Your practitioner, Amy Kreydin, is up to date on recommended immunizations for healthcare practitioners, does routine asymptomatic screening for COVID-19, and prioritizes immune supportive lifestyle medicine.
