COVID-19 Safety Precautions for reopening of the practice

As I am reopening the Craniosacral Therapy and Somatic Movement Therapy practice, there are some precautions I would like to take in order to keep us all safe away from COVID-19. I am following the guidelines laid out by the UK Government and my professional body, the Craniosacral Therapy Association (CSTA). 

This is how it looks like when you book an appointment with me.

Before you arrive

On the day before, you will receive a COVID-19 screening questionnaire and a consent form via email. Please read through them, and if you have any enquires, please feel free to contact me. I will ask you to sign on the form at your arrival so there is no need to return these at this point.

The questions will include;

• a high temperature within the last seven days (feeling hot to touch on your chest and back)

• a new, continuous cough (coughing a lot for more than an hour or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours or a worsening of a pre-existing cough) 

• a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste • or have knowingly been in contact recently (the last seven days) with anyone who has been symptomatic of having Covid-19. 

and 

• an agreement to cooperate NHS Test and Trace with requests for data (including name, contact number, dates and times of visit) if needed, up to 21 days after the treatment.

Arrival at the clinic

Please practice social distancing at the door, staircase and waiting area.

Please arrive just before your appointment time so that you do not need to use the waiting area. I will be also following strict cleaning and ventilation procedure for 30 minutes between clients, which allows me to  have little flexibility to accommodate early or late arrivals.

During your appointment

I will ask you to wash the hands with soap and water at the sink in the room.

I will ask you to sign on the consent form that was emailed the day before for you to read. The pen would have been sanitised after the use of the previous person, as well as the treatment table and furniture in the room.

We will keep 2m social distancing during the consultation.

There will be no water and blanket provided. You are welcome to bring in your own. I have pillows with wipeable PVC covers that will be sanitised after every use. 

I will wash the hands with soap and water before the bodywork.

For the bodywork, I will be wearing a visor, and a facemask if you feel more comfortable in that way.

You are also welcome to wear a face covering if you like.

There will be no touch on your face in the treatment at this point.

Please point out anything that I could do for you to make you feel more at ease, so that you would receive the maximum benefit from the treatment.

Thank you for your understanding. I look forward to seeing you at the clinic.
