BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – Quechua Medical Massage, located at 226 King Street in Cocoa is open for business, thanks to retrofitting the space with innovative safety protocols designed for comfort and protection from the spread of Coronavirus and other illnesses.
Among the new safety measures is a new plexiglass device invented by Amanda Camacho to keep clients and massage therapists protected from the spread of viruses.
The device is currently in use at the Cocoa facility and is also available for use with portable massage appointments. It is a “Made in the USA” metal table adapter with an adjustable plexiglass shield that goes over the client’s face area.
This eliminates the mask requirement for the client during the massage appointment.
“All the feedback I have received has been so positive,” said Camacho, owner of Quechua Medical Massage, and inventor of the plexiglass shield and a disposable cover tissue designed to allow the client to breathe and speak freely without risking droplets contaminating the floor and other surfaces.
“These ideas came to me in times of distress and emergency. While I was forced to lose income, I wanted to find a way to help others in this industry to have something that will keep both client and therapists safe. I believe the safety protocols along with the new devices help accomplish this.”
Camacho’s product designs are being manufactured through Sunshine Welding, out of Port Canaveral, and Polymer Fabricators in Ormond Beach.
In addition to the devices, Camacho has a list of safety measures in place in order to deliver massage therapy services. These include temperature checks upon entry, disinfectant procedures, disposable sheets, gloves and sandals, and hand sanitizer for both the client and the therapist.
Quechua Medical Massage has been providing medical and therapeutic massage services in Cocoa and Brevard County since 2015.
