01 Jul What TAO is doing to better PROTECT and ensure the SAFETY of our guests


  • A HEPA MEDICAL GRADE AIR PURIFIER, the IQ Air, will be rolled into the treatment room while you are performing the service.
    • ABOUT THE IQ AIR: A king among princes, IQAir air purifiers rule supreme as the top rated air purifier in the industry. While most HEPA air purifiers claim to be effective at capturing particles down to 0.3 microns, IQAir’s revolutionary HyperHEPA filtration system is proven to capture particles 100 times smaller, down to 0.003 microns; 10 times smaller than a virus. 
    • IQAir Purifiers filter out particles 10 times smaller than viruses such as COVID-19 immediately. These units are the only air purifiers with HyperHEPA filtration, which capture 99.5% of all airborne particulates down to 0.003 microns, including the smallest and most harmful allergens, irritants and viruses. While the COVID-19 virus is .06-.14 microns in size. Most air purifiers are rated to capture 0.3 microns, which does NOT include virus filtration. The IQAir purifiers are equipped to filter particles down to .003 microns—much smaller than the coronavirus causing our current pandemic. 

  • Our WAITING ROOM IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED. Clients will be notified when we are ready either by phone or unlocking the door for entry.

  • OPEN DOOR treatments when possible. Once the client is settled, the door will be opened for the duration of service.
