Coronavirus: Treatments & Safety Guidelines

As we begin to move out of lockdown, we hope you are all well and able to enjoy more time outdoors with family and friends.

As we continue to monitor Government guidelines and prepare to welcome clients safely back to The Massage House, we wanted to update you on the necessary changes we are doing to ensure our treatments are safe, welcoming and enjoyable.

Our biggest priority at The Massage House is the wellbeing of our clients, which is why we have undergone the following extras:

1. Extra Safety & Hygiene Precautions: We are following the detailed practice guidelines set out by the Government, NHS as well as our professional association, The Federation of Holistic Therapists.

2.  Extra Training: During Lockdown, we have completed a certified infection control course and updated the Health & Safety Risk Assessments for the practice. We have purchased PPE equipment and will be using it during treatments.

3. Extra Hygiene & Deep Cleaning: The treatment room has been rearranged to ensure deep cleaning is detailed and efficient after every appointment. Clients will also be asked to bring their own towels for appointments (and £5 will be discounted from the treatment for the inconvenience).

4.  Extra Attention: Close monitoring of our therapist’s health and the health of our clients will be required on a daily basis, and every client will be asked to have their temperature taken on arrival. Should the temperature be raised, appointments will be postponed without charge.

5. Extra Honesty: We expect clients to defer their treatment if they are feeling unwell or have any Covid-19 symptoms. A Pre-Treatment Consent Form will be emailed prior to your treatment and we will need it approved and signed before going ahead. Should you have had Covid-19, we will require a letter of consent from your GP to undertake the treatment.

Initially we will be holding appointments on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays only for pre-existing clients only.

If you would like more information or need further assurances on the extra elements we are putting in place to keep us all safe and well, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We look forward to hearing from you and really do hope that we can welcome you back to The Massage House soon.
