Notice for my clients about Corona virus.

No doubt you have heard a lot about COVID-19 (Corona Virus) in the media recently as the situation continues to unfold.

As a healthcare practitioner I care for the health of my clients as well as my own.

COVID-19 Is primarily spread between people when we directly touch or breathe the air of someone who is already infected, or through touching a surface that has been recently infected.

Hygiene and infection control is part of a massage therapist training because of the nature of our work.

So I wanted to share with you the precautions I’m taking here in my treatment room.

Things I ALWAYS do to be clean and sanitary:

  • I use fresh linen for each client.
  • I wash my hands thoroughly before each client.
  • My treatment environment is clean and sanitary.
  • Bathrooms and shared spaces are cleaned daily and disinfected after each client.
  • Clients are asked not to attend if they are sick.
  • I never work if I am sick.
  • There is a 30 minutes space between appointments to allow for cleaning, linen change, and so clients don’t cross over.

At the moment I’m also adding the precautions of:

  • I ask clients not to attend if they have recently travelled or have been in contact with any confirmed cases.
  • I provide sanitising hand gel for each client on  entering and leaving the room.
  • I am disinfecting commonly touched surfaces after each client.
  • I’m wearing a face mask whilst treating.

Right now I’m continuing to provide the usual care and support for all my clients. As the situation unfolds and we learn more, I will continue to follow the advice from the authorities.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Thank you, Paula.
