Covid -19

Policy & Procedures

Throughout the pandemic I will be following the latest guidelines issued by the government, NHS, other relevant authorities and my professional association - The Federation of Holistic Therapists, regarding safe and hygienic practice and the use of any PPE. 

 

I have carried out a full risk assessment, in line with the HSE, to ensure I can provide the safest and most comfortable treatment for you and myself during this time.

These measures may change with government guidance and will be updated accordingly.

 

Hygiene and sanitisation is always a priority within the beauty industry and something I have always taken seriously, during lockdown I underwent specific training on how to carry out treatments safely for both clients and therapists upon re-opening, involving enhanced cleaning measures which are outlined in my Covid -19 policy and procedures below.

With these extra measures in place I have had to re-evaluate the way I book my appointments to be both cost and time effective. 

With this in mind there will now be a minimum treatment time of 30 minutes going forward, each treatment has a time next to it so you can book shorter treatments either together or added onto longer treatments to meet the minimum time requirements.  

Thankyou for your understanding.

  Prior to your appointment 

I will contact you via email with a Covid-19 pre-treatment questionnaire to be completed

NO MORE than 24hrs before your appointment, this can be returned via email or               printed off and handed to me upon arrival.

If neither of these is possible I will call/text you to go through the questions.
