INFECTION CONTROL & COVID
Infection Control Precautions
I have had to put into place a few changes which afford compliance with Association Body and Insurance requirements. I have also made other changes which have not been enforced but which I believe will create a safer treating environment, considering present health concerns.
Association of Reflexology & Insurance requirements :
-Masks. It is now entirely optional for both client and practitioner to wear a mask. If the client prefers to wear one and prefers me to wear one please let me know when I send your appointment reminder.
- Frequent washing of hands/sanitising
- Maintain social distancing, if requested
: Practitioner to
- Fully clean down and air treatment room and contacted surfaces and areas between appointments, using anti viral/bacterial cleaning products
- Take contactless payments or bank transfers if client prefers
- Risk assess
I have a new stand alone treatment room at the top of the drive...The Cwtch. Please see 'about Funky Feet page' for piccies! It has been freshly decorated and its contents are easily cleanable. I have also had my treatment couch re- upholstered in Healthcare grade fabric which is impregnated with an anti- microbial/bacterial/fungal/viral product, scientifically proven to be effective against many nasties, including Covid.
I use a clean muslin coverlet at head and feet for each client. No need for wasteful couch roll to be used.
Please, if you do enjoy a snuggly blanket for your treatment, could you please bring one of those with you to avoid any sharing and possibility of cross contamination!
I will have a half an hour gap between clients to allow a full clean down of all used areas and 15 minutes of airing of the treatment room. This should also ensure the avoidance of client overlap. Due to this, please be considerate and try to be punctual with appointment times.
You will be able to use contactless card payments, cash or bank transfer to pay.
When you have an appointment I will contact you the day before to remind you of your appointment. If you have any infection concerns please let me know in reply. I can do this via text.
Hopefully, these precautions will reassure and your treatment will be as relaxing and therapeutic as it possibly can be.
