Covid-19 Policy

Covid-19 Policy

Covid-19 can affect anyone. The safest and fairest approach to controlling the spread of the virus is to assume that we are all potential carriers. I must therefore take precautions to protect myself and my clients by assuming each and every one of us potentially has the virus.

I will:

  1. keep a record of who has been into the building each day in case contact tracing is needed.
  2. run on time and leave a period of time (a minimum of 30 minutes) between each client. This will give time to change couch linen, wipe down the treatment table, wipe down surfaces and follow any other protocols I decide on.
  3. use clean linens, wipeable pillowcases and PPE.
  4. keep a distance of 1m at all times within the practice, apart from during treatment.
  5. offer greater flexibility with the cancellation policy so that clients feel they are able to cancel if they are unwell.
  6. be aware and take caution with clients that have underlying health conditions (heart disease, lung conditions, diabetes, supressed immune systems, over 70s). These could be possible contra-indications for treatment.
  7. cancel my clients if I am unwell.

 

Please can you be aware of your obligations:

Can you:

  1. postpone your appointment if you are showing any Covid-19 symptoms or know you have been in contact with anyone with symptoms in the last week
  2. postpone your appointment if you have tested positive.
  3. pay electronically before your treatment to minimise handling cash or cheques.
  4. arrive at the appointed time for your appointment as I don’t have a waiting room.
  5. go to the toilet before coming to the appointment as the clinic’s toilet should only be used in an emergency.
  6. bring your own mask.
  7. bring your own water bottle.
  8. wash or sanitise hands on arrival and at the end of each treatment.
  9. sign the Covid-19 disclaimer on your first appointment.

 

Let’s celebrate – Open from 12th April

It is great news that I should be able to welcome clients back from Monday 12th April.

I am now taking bookings

I recommend you call me on 07502 304284 if you’d like to book a session. From experience, I expect a rush, so get in quick!

As before, new clients will be asked to read the following:

  1. Covid-19 Policy, explaining the new protocols we will be observing.
  2. Covid-19 Disclaimer.
  3. Covid-19 pre-treatment questionnaire. This includes questions about your health regarding Covid-19.

 

I hope you have kept well and look forward to hearing from you.

 

All the best

Charlotte

I can help you in lockdown

It’s with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that all massage clinics have to temporarily close. BUT, I can continue to help you if you are in pain.
It’s time to embrace a remote consultation. Clients that have had one to one Zoom consultations have said that they have been incredibly effective.
There are so many ways I can help you to reduce your pain. With a few tools I can teach you how to manage your pain and prepare a bespoke set of targeted stretches.
If you need this help during lockdown, contact me on 07502304284
I really am here to help you.

Look after yourself and I look forward to hearing from you.

Here’s to a much better 2021

I am open

Yes, I’m open

I’m so looking forward to seeing you again and getting on with some real massage.

The same Covid-19 precautions are being maintained to keep us safe. Thank you for helping me with those, I really appreciate it.

Appointments available

Hope you are well. We seem to be getting through this crazy time.

So apart from mask wearing, some Covid-19 questions and an enormous amount of washing and cleaning, I am back to the new normal.

If you would like to book an appointment, then please call me on 07502 304284. Once we have confirmed an appointment, I will take your payment electronically and send you the following:

  1. Covid-19 Policy, explaining the new protocols we will be observing.
  2. Covid-19 pre-treatment questionnaire to fill in, sign and return. This includes questions about your health regarding Covid-19, such as have you been tested or seen anyone who has it?
  3. Covid-19 Disclaimer to sign and return.

These are to ensure yours and my safety.

I hope you are well and look forward to hearing from you.

My massage clinic is open

We have been given the green light

Massage therapists are allowed to see clients from Monday 13th July.

As my clinic is in my home, I am only allowed to see two clients a day at the moment to ensure I can offer the highest levels of safety.

If you would like to book an appointment, then please call me on 07502 304284. Once we have confirmed an appointment, I will take your payment electronically and send you the following:

  1. Covid-19 Policy, explaining the new protocols we will be observing.
  2. Covid-19 pre-treatment questionnaire to fill in, sign and return. This includes questions about your health regarding Covid-19, such as have you been tested or seen anyone who has it?
  3. Covid-19 Disclaimer to sign and return.

These are to ensure yours and my safety.

Please note that I cannot offer Fascial facials or TMJ work. Government guidance currently says:
“Only services that do not involve work in the highest risk zone – directly in front of the face – should be made available to clients. This means that treatments such as … facial treatments, should not be provided until government advice changes, due to the much greater risk of transmission.”
I will update you on any changes.

I hope you are well and look forward to hearing from you.

What’s new this year

So 2018 has been another great year for continued training.

I started the year with a wonderful ‘Fascial Facial‘ course. This means you can have an amazing facial without any products just pure skin revival. You will look and feel so different.

ScarWork has changed the way I work with so many of my clients. Scars can cause restrictions underneath the visible scar as well as around it. This super light touch work can transform so many  issues caused by scarring. 

And lastly an amazing Pelvic and Sciatica‘ course taught by Til Luchau, all the way from the USA. 

There is always room for improvement. I will keep on training for your benefit.

All the best for 2019

Refining the light touch

I admit to being a bit of a course junkie, but it’s a win-win situation.
I get so wrapped up in the doing, I sometimes forget to tell you about my latest knowledge. So, since the last post I’ve been on two more courses. Both covering fascial bodywork…KEEP READING! Although Dr Ida Rolf pioneered fascial bodywork in the last century, the importance of fascia is only just being acknowledged.
There’s indirect and direct fascial bodywork:
Indirect work is based on light touch, helping the body to unwind emotionally and physically. Direct work identifies areas of imbalance, and improves the body’s structure and alignment.
Both make you feel a whole lot better.

So give me a ring to discuss any pain you may have. And we’ll take it from there.

All the best for 2017
