The aim of this policy is to keep clients safe and well.
We can see clients again in person from Monday, 13th July 2020.
I am looking at how to structure sessions for you to
have the best (and safest) experience under the "new normal".
I have decided to give you a choice in the level of precautions during your treatment, the range of options is listed in my corona policy.
Stay safe and sane. Hope to see you soon. With warm regards, Regina
Clients are expected to judge when it safe for them to seek
treatment. Their consent is assumed when they book and attend an
appointment. They have the option of a very cautious approach with
the non-contact part of the treatment taking place remotely. Hand
washing and sanitising facilities are provided. It is possible to
provide the treatment using disposable gloves. Clients can choose
if they want to wear a face covering. The therapist is prepared to
wear a visor or face covering when the client is on the premises. For extra safety the therapist may wear an apron that can easily be desinfected.
We will undertake infection prevention measures, including
Please be aware that the treatment room has soft furnishings, books and other "non-essential items", which cannot be disinfected.
The massage table has brand new coverings allowing for frequent laudry and disinfection.
At the first session (back) we will do comprehensive Covid-19 screening.
All clients asked at booking and on arrival the following:
If the answer to any of the above questions is "yes" the
treatment will be postponed. The client must inform the therapist
if they develop symptoms before the appointment or post treatment. Clients will be asked to sign this at each session. Should the therapist develop Covid-19 symptoms sessions will be cancelled, possibly at short notice..
Initial consultation client can choose between:
Existing clients: Welcome, check-in, agreement of treatment, etc
Treatment prone (on front), side lying therapist facing away from client, and massage chair:
Treatment on upper body supine (on back) or side lying with the therapist facing client
Treatment on lower body supine (on back) or side lying with the therapist facing client
Specialist supine head and neck treatments:
Seated acupressure treatment is also possible in the garden, weather permitting.
Default in blue, unless agreed otherwise.
The guidance on visors is taken from current government advice: Keeping workers and clients safe during COVID-19 in close contact services
Preferred choice is balance transfer before or after treatment
cheque, cash or card payments are accepted.
I am thinking about my charging and cancellation policy. I would like to be fair both for clients and myself. I do not want people to come when they suspect that they have Covid-19.
The following are options, I have not decided yet. I do invite comments.
Charging policy - rationale for reviewing
You will be asked to sign the before every session:
These are the most common Covid-19 symptoms.
