Our Clinic Procedures
All our staff arrive to the clinic either by walking or by car. Those who drive will be asked to disinfect their driving space, and those who walk will be asked to wear a mask if they enter any enclosed spaces on their journey to work.
On arrival to the clinic, our new opening up procedure will include disinfecting all door handles, light switches and surfaces. These will also be cleaned on an hourly basis throughout the day and at the end of the day.
In the treatment rooms, we have removed the cotton plinth covers and we have plastic pillowcases. Before any patients are treated, we will sanitise all surfaces in the treatment room, including the chair, plinth and pillows. This will be repeated immediately after each patient leaves and at the end of the day.
Our receptionists will be wearing masks. Our therapists will be wearing masks which meet the FRSM Type IIR standard outlined by Public Health England. The therapist will also be wearing a disposable apron and disposable gloves.
Our therapists will be following a specific procedure as outlined by Public Health England to put on and take off the PPE.
Between each patient, windows and doors to the treatment room will be opened to aerate the room.
Therapists will wash hands and forearms thoroughly following hand-washing procedures outlined by Public Health England.
We will be adding 15 minutes between each patient to deal with these extra procedures.
All staff are encouraged to look after their physical and mental wellbeing during this time.
Simple things like moving regularly, getting fresh air and sunlight, going to bed early, taking vitamin C and D, meditating and eating freshly cooked whole-food meals are all things that we have always advocated in our clinic, and are now more important than ever.
Our staff, both our therapists and our front of house team, always lead by example with our health and will be practicing what we preach with regards to looking after ourselves.
