Reflex Point - New Procedure

I have carried out a full risk assessment & adhere to the COVID-19 guidelines produced by the government and my professional association, the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT).

  • Please attend your appointment on your own (Unaccompanied)

  • Limit personal belongings

  • Upon arrival you will be asked to use hand sanitiser

  • Contactless payment is available now but if you prefer to pay by cash or bank transfer that is fine.

  • If you experience any Covid-19 symptoms after your appointment please contact me immediately

I will...

  • Check I am in good health before you arrive for treatment.

  • Wash my hands or use hand sanitiser before treatment.

  • Follow guidelines on the use of personal protective equipment (PPE)

  • Disinfect non-porous materials, e.g. massage couch, washable pillows and equipment.

  • Wash porous materials e.g. pillowcases and towels.

  • Ventilate the treatment room.

  • Change my tunic between clients

  • Wear durable, disposable gloves when cleaning the premises.

  • Maintain social distancing before and after the treatment.

Prior to your treatment you will be asked to...

  • Complete a short COVID-19 pre-treatment form.

  • Contact your therapist and re-schedule if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, or if any person in your household is self-isolating – you will NOT be charged a cancellation fee

At your treatment:

  • Bring a bottle of water for your refreshment.

  • Arrive at the agreed time and ensure social distancing before and after the treatment.

  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitiser upon arrival.

  • Follow guidelines on the use of PPE.

  • Pay by card or other cashless method, where possible.

 

Information re PPE from: HM Government 09/7/20: Keeping workers and clients safe during COVID-19 in close contact services. COVID-19 secure guidance for employers, employees and the self-employed

“…clear visor that covers the face and provides a barrier between the wearer and the client ….There is no requirement for the client to wear any additional protection such as a mask or face covering, when the practitioner is wearing a visor. There is no benefit to either the client or the practitioner of wearing additional PPE to that which they would usually use, beyond the clear visor mentioned above. The most effective methods of preventing the transmission of COVID-19 are still social distancing and regular handwashing. These steps must still be followed as much as possible, even when practitioners are wearing protective equipment”

Declaration - I have read & understood the pre-treatment questions & procedure

I have answered ‘no’ to the pre-treatment questions and currently have no symptoms stated.

I understand that the World Health Organisation has declared COVID-19 a worldwide pandemic and is extremely contagious and can spread from person to person.

I have read & understood the pre-treatment questions & procedure & I am happy to follow social distancing measures set out by Reflex Point at my appointment to minimise risk and take the precautions needed.

I understand that Sally Cockerill is closely monitoring the COVID 19 situation and has put in place reasonable preventative measures aimed at reducing the risk, however given the nature of the virus I understand that there is a risk of becoming infected with COVID 19.

By proceeding with my treatment, I hereby acknowledge and accept the risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 through this elective treatment and I give my permission to proceed.
