Therapists / Practitioners/Teachers are now able to return to work but there will be some changes in how appointments will proceed to continue to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus infection. Please note there will be no hands-on treatments/face to face treatments or face to face, hands on teaching practice until the Government allows, this will be reviewed on the 15th August at the earliest. Therefore, no reiki and massage treatments will be offered here at Lake Side Natural Healing. Teaching Reiki positions will be carried out by demonstration only, not on each other but via diagrams, or your teacher showing you. I list below some (this is not an exhaustive list) of the changes you can expect.
Firstly, if you are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms, please postpone or cancel your appointment. I will be taking your temperature upon arrival and there will also be a consent and consultation form to complete regarding your exposure to Covid-19. This will be sent to you alongside this letter and other procedures. If you are considered a high-risk or moderate risk client, it may not be possible to offer you a treatment or teach you at this time but feel free to discuss this with me. If you have difficulty printing or completing the forms please let me know well in advance of your visit. It may be possible to complete these here in Lake Side Natural Healing but once complete if I think the information you supplied poses a risk to you or the Practice and its residents then I will ask you to leave.
If you are a first-time client, your initial consultation will take place via telephone or videoconferencing, rather than during your appointment. (Alternatively, a consultation form could be emailed for completion prior to the visit). If you are an existing client I will also be sending you a revised consultation form and a Covid-19 consent form prior to your appointment to discuss your needs and any Covid-19 issues. All consultation and consent documents should be signed and brought with you to your appointment or emailed beforehand. Please bring you own pen and water if needed, as I can no longer supply this. If you have a face mask, please wear this but if you do not, I will supply you with one to wear throughout your treatment/teaching. It would also be helpful if you wear clothing which is easy to remove and avoid wearing jewellery.
Upon entering the house, ensure social distancing, although furniture will have been arranged to facilitate this). Please only bring a chaperone or legal guardian if necessary. Soft furnishings in the practice room (and reception) will be covered with couch roll and all unnecessary soft furnishings and bric-a-brac will have been removed where possible.
Upon arrival, you will be required to remove your shoes outside of the house in the Porch, you will be required to wash your hands and sterilise them before entering the teaching or treatment room. Please enter the teaching/treatment room without touching anything.
The treatment/teaching room will have been thoroughly disinfected and all linen and face cradles replaced for each client. I will be wearing personal protective equipment which includes a mask and gloves. Do not be concerned about the use of gloves, it will not affect your treatment.
The Reiki treatment will continue as usual, although unnecessary chatting should be avoided to prevent droplet formation. Reiki Teaching practice will not be carried out by yourself. You will observe me demonstrating Reiki positions for self-treating and treating others. I may use a diagram or substitute such as a cuddly toy.
When the treatment/teaching is over, please leave all the linens/couch roll, untouched on the couch/chair and try not to touch anything as you leave. Please keep your mask on until you exit the premises. It is also recommended that you register for the NHS Track and Trace app to maintain our safety.
Payment must be made prior to the appointment via Direct Transfer. If you have to pay with cash, please bring the correct money and place it in the supplied envelope.
Please note appointments will be spaced further apart than usual to enable disinfection of the practice space, therapy table, equipment and facilities.
I look forward to welcoming you back to the practice.
