COVID-19 guidlines

In order to work safely I have put together a list of measures that will be mandatory from now on (until further notice) to minimise the risk of Covid 19 infection and transmission. This is particularly important for those who are immune suppressed.

Expert advice states that risk is increased with interpersonal proximity as well as the duration of exposure to the other. As massage is skin-to-skin contact and the average length of a treatment is an hour plus at least 15 minutes either side, it is in a high-risk category and therefore calls for a combination of practices listed below.

Firstly, you will be asked if you have:

- Cold or flu-like symptoms (fever, sore throat, cough, runny nose)
- If you have been in contact with anyone tested positive for Covid 19
- If you have recently returned from overseas travel

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, or if I am developing any symptoms as above, we will postpone your appointment to a later date.

- I will be exercising strict hand hygiene before and after each massage
- I will be wearing a new surgical mask for each massage session
- I will be wearing a garment over my clothing that will be changed before each massage session
- Every surface (EFTPOS machine, furniture, oil bottle etc) will be wiped with disinfectant after each massage
- My over-garments and all linen will be washed in hot water at the end of each day

You will be required to:

- Bring only essential items into the treatment room
- Sanitise your hands before entering the room
- Use only furniture that is able to be wiped down with disinfectant.
- You will be provided with a light-weight surgical mask to be put on before you enter the room and for the duration of the massage.

Due to the added expense of extra cleaning, disposable masks, disinfectant and hot water washing there is a fee increase to $85 per hour.

Thank you for your patience as we adapt to these new patterns of working together.
Please call me if you have any questions.
