Corona Policy

The aim of this policy is to keep clients safe and well, I can see clients again in person from August 2020. 

Covid-19 screening

I will check prior to each session:

These are the most common Covid-19 symptoms.

  • Loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you have noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.

  • High temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back.

  • New, continuous cough – this means coughing for a lot more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual).

 

Please sign that you:

  • consent to having treatment

  • are aware of the risks

  • currently do not test positive for Covid-19

  • currently do not have corona virus symptoms (or any other potentially contagious condition)

  • will cancel treatment if you have Covid-19

  • will inform Emspired Movement & Massage should you develop Covid-19 within a week of treatment

Infection prevention

 

I will undertake infection prevention measures, including

  • doors will be opened for clients on arrival and departure,

  • clients are discouraged from touching surfaces,

  • any surfaces that may have been contaminated are cleaned between each contact,

  • clients and therapist will use good hand hygiene,

  • physical distancing when possible

  • clients are required to wear face coverings while on the premises
    (government guidance from 8 August 2020).

 

Please be aware that the treatment room has soft furnishings, books and other "non-essential items", which cannot be disinfected. 

The massage table has brand new coverings allowing for frequent laudry and disinfection, And I will be asking that you bring your own towels where possible. 

 

Covid-19 screening

At the first session (back) we will do comprehensive Covid-19 screening online. 

All clients asked at booking and on arrival the following:

  • Do you suspect you are currently infected, either with the corona virus or with any other potentially contagious condition?

  • Do you have a raised temperature above 38°C?

  • Have you lost your sense of taste and/or smell in the last few days? (Sense of smell may be tested on arrival)

  • Have you developed a cough in the last few days?

 

If the answer to any of the above questions is "yes" the treatment will be postponed. The client must inform the therapist if they develop symptoms before the appointment or post treatment.

 

Clients will be asked the pre screening questions agaian at each session. Should the therapist develop Covid-19 symptoms sessions will be cancelled, possibly at short notice..

 

Before hands-on treatment

Initial consultation client can choose between:

  • virtual consultation - clients will be asked to sign consent form remotely

  • phone consultation - clients will be asked to sign consent form prior to treatment on arrival

  • in treatment room with two metres distance with virsor or face covering if chosen.
