Where it's all about you
Lockdown has now been relaxed enough and Sports Therapists have been given the green light to return to work. Therefore, I am now ready to make appointments. There will be some changes in the process both before and during each session, to help ensure both yours and my safety.
Before you leave your home, please check your temperature, and consider if you are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms. If yes to any of those questions, please postpone or cancel your appointment.
If you are a first-time client, your pre-session consultation will now take place via the phone or a consultation form emailed for completion prior to the visit.
If you are an existing client there will be a short update consultation – to see how you have been since pre lockdown and whether you have any Covid-19 issues. Also, via phone or email.
There will also be a consent form to complete regarding exposure to Covid-19. If you are considered a high-risk client, it may not be possible to massage you at this time. Please check high risk group: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/people-at-higher-risk/whos-at-higher-risk-from-coronavirus/
All consultation & consent documents can be signed & brought on the day or emailed beforehand. Please bring you own pen if you need one.
Please also bring your own water.
Please wear easy to remove clothes. You will be given a container in which to put them when you undress. Please avoid wearing jewellery as this makes the process simpler.
When you arrive, you will be required to take off your shoes, wash your hands (drying them with paper towels) – and walk into the practice room without touching anything.
If there are soft furnishings in the practice room, they will be covered by couch roll. Cushions and soft furnishings will have been removed.
The massage table will have been thoroughly disinfected. The linens are all clean, and you will be encouraged to wear a mask.
I will be using personal protective equipment – until the requirement relaxes.
When the massage is over, please leave all the linens and towels.
Payment ideally should be made by contact less payment.
There will be an approximate 30-minute gap between clients, to enable disinfection of the practice space, therapy table and equipment, hallways and bathrooms etc, with enough time to dry and take effect.
