Following the announcement by the Government on Thursday 9th July, We are delighted that Medulla Holistic Therapies can start seeing clients face to face again for hands on treatments. This COVID-19 Risk Assessment shows my commitment to keeping my clients and myself and family safe.
Obviously keeping you and us safe is of paramount importance and so there will be some changes to the way appointments and treatments are carried out. This will include reduced chat time and increased PPE as well as a health questionnaire before each and every appointment. I will ask you to not attend your appointment if you or any of your household have any of the COVID-19 symptoms, to wear your own face covering and put it on before entering the house and to take care not to touch anything before you enter the treatment room as a way of protecting us all.
Please read the attached Risk Assessment and Commitment that I undertake to protect you and then please also read the new client protocol which advises what you and we should do to prevent the virus from spreading.
I have taken my guidance from the UK Reiki Federation as well as the Government’s website www.gov.uk
If you have any questions regarding my statements or changes to your treatment then please do contact me here.
|I have removed the rugs, soft furnishings and many decorative items to ensure all surfaces in the treatment room are easy to clean and sanitise.|
|I will only be using the treatment couch (without the fabric cover) as it is easier to sanitise before and after each client. The small stool will also be included in this process.|
|The pillow coverings, flannels and towels will be changed and washed after each client.|
|I will wear a face covering, a visor and a disposable apron for all treatments. I will wear gloves for Reiki but not reflexology.|
|I will wash my hands immediately before and after each treatment without touching anything between the sink and the treatment room and drying my hands on paper towel.|
|I have to keep your records and agree to share a few details with NHS Track and Trace if they contact me if one of my other clients develops symptoms.|
|I have a responsibility to inform the local health authority if you tell me that you develop symptoms within seven days of visiting my treatment room.|
|On the morning of each treatment I will text you a health questionnaire at around 8am, please copy and paste it into your reply with you answers. I will not be able to see you if you have not done this.|
Thank you for taking the time and trouble to read this risk assessment and also the associated protocol. This is for the safety of all of us and our loved ones and to control the spread of the coronavirus.
Keep well, keep safe and I look forward to seeing you at your next treatment soon.
