It has never been more important for us to take care of our health and well being, and to manage and relieve the stress in our lives, and the impact that this has on our mind, body and spirit.
In order to keep you and me as safe as possible, but still be able to receive the wonderful benefits of aromatherapy, it will be necessary for us to follow the guidelines very carefully.
My practice remains open, and I continue to follow safety guidelines to protect my clients as well as myself and my family. They may well change according to the circumstances, in which case I will amend them accordingly. Although the government guidelines have now eased, it is evident that the pandemic is very much still with us, and at present my own health and safety procedures have not changed.
I have received both vaccinations and a booster. I carry out a lateral flow test prior to each appointment, and ask my clients to do the same, if possible.
Clients will be asked to observe the safety guidelines throughout their visit: this includes the wearing of masks, and using hand sanitizer/hand washing.
A consultation will take place by phone or video link prior to the appointment: as part of this consultation, I will talk through the safety guidelines, and check that it is safe for you to come for your appointment. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions, and to let me know if you are unable to comply with any of the guidelines for any reason (for example, if you are exempt from wearing a mask for medical reasons). Face to face consultations may be possible in a socially distanced manner in fine weather.
I will wear a face mask throughout the appointment, and will wash and sanitise my hands carefully prior to the massage. Appointments will be more limited to allow deep cleaning to take place between appointments. Ventilation of the room will be carried out between each appointment.
As usual, all bedding will be washed for every client.
Online consulatations for self care and self massage are available for clients who are shielding or unable to come to appointments. Please see my treatment page for details.
If any client has had, or been in contact with anyone who has had Covid-19 symptoms, will not be able to have treatment until they have had two negative lateral flow tests). Treatment will also not be possible for anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19 (with or without symptoms), until it is deemed safe for them to do so.
Any clients who are unsure whether it is safe for them to receive aromatherapy treatment due to medical reasons, will be asked to gain the permission of their doctor before proceeding.
A full risk assessment is available on request.
With many thanks for your cooperation, stay safe, Liz
