Covid-19 Information for Clients

New measures in place when we open on 27th July

Your therapist will…

  • Check they are in good health before you arrive for treatment.
  • Wash their hands or use hand sanitiser before treatment as per government guidelines.
  • Follow guidelines on the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). Our therapists wear a surgical face mask in addition to a medical grade visor.
  • Clean and disinfect non-porous materials, e.g. massage couch and equipment.
  • Use single use disposable sheets underneath and over the client plus a freshly laundered fleece blanket new for each client. Laundry is done at the highest temperature for the material.
  • Replace single use materials between clients.
  • Ventilate the treatment room.
  • Change their disposable apron between clients.
  • Wear disposable gloves when massaging, which will be replaced at the start of each treatment. Wear disposable gloves when cleaning and discard afterwards.
  • Maintain social distancing before and after the treatment.
  • Prior to your treatment:

  • You will be asked to…
  • Complete a short COVID-19 pre- treatment health screening questionnaire over the phone.
  • Please take your temperature just before you come for your treatment, there will be a space on the screening questionnaire to sign that you have done this prior to treatment.
  • Stay at home if you have any symptoms of Covid 19 such as a high temperature, new or continuous cough or a change or loss in sense of taste or smell, or if any person in your household is self-isolating. Please follow current government guidelines on self isolating. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-and-treatment/

  • Pay by bank transfer at least 24 hours before the scheduled treatment where possible, to reduce cash handling and cross contamination.

 

  • At your treatment:

  • Please wear a 3 ply face mask, you can use our own or we will provide one.
  • Arrive at the agreed time and ensure social distancing before and after the treatment, follow markings on the floor and signs to assist with this.
