Covid 19

 

It’s so exciting to be able to provide hands of treatments again and I’m really looking forward to welcoming everyone back. It is important for everyone to feel safe and well protected whilst attending appointments. Extra measures have been implemented to improve safety and help you to feel comfortable during your visit. It is important to read through the protocol as some things will be different.

 

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, and in line with government guidelines I have put extra measures in place for the safety of you and me.
• Thorough risk assessment
• PPE will be worn
• Pre-treatment forms before each treatment
• Online/telephone consultations
• My high hygiene standards have been elevated, and extra time allowed between treatments


Consultations
Your appointment will be divided into 2 sessions.
1. Consultations will be done via internet video or telephone the day before you visit in person.
This will include a Covid-19 assessment plus the usual discussion as to your needs from the treatments and time to chat.
2. Your physical hands on session will be 45 minutes; in line with industry guidelines to reduce to amount of time spent in close proximity and reduced time talking when together in person.

Both parts will be classed as one session and combined make up the full session time.
