I have carried out a full risk assessment and adhere to COVID-19 guidelines produced by the government and my professional associations, the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) and the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage (ISRM).

As your Therapist, I will always ….

  • Check I am in good health before your arrive for treatment. This includes taking regular Lateral Flow Tests. If I develop symptoms of a cold, flu or COVID, I will stop providing treatments.
  • Maintain social distancing as much as possible outside hands on time.
  • Increase hand washing and use of hand sanitiser
  • Follow current guidelines on the use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Wash porous materials, eg couch cover and towels at 600C
  • Replace couch roll and other disposable materials
  • Ventilate the treatment room and reception area
  • Change my uniform if needed
  • Wear durable, disposable gloves when cleaning the premises
  • Provide extra controls for clients in a High Risk (Extremely Vulnerable) Group to make sure you are able to give informed consent for face-to-face treatments

Prior to your Appointment, I will ask you to …..

  • Complete a Health Screening Questionnaire about symptoms of cold, flu (commonly known as a winter virus) and COVID-19 the day before your appointment. If you have any symptoms that fall under this category, we will need to re-arrange your appointment.
  • Complete a new Consultation Form if your details and goals have changed

At your Appointment …..

  • There is no legal requirement to wear a face covering. I will continue to review this measure should COVID cases rise.
  • Work around the neck or face will be reduced.
  • Arrive at your agreed appointment time to avoid coming into contact with other clients.
