Wild Air Wellbeing Update
13TH JULY 2020 - RETURN TO WORK
As of today, Monday 13th July 2020, Reflexologists have been given the approval to return to work, which is wonderful news. The main stipulation however is that this is for Foot Reflexology only, so currently Hand Reflexology and Indian Head Massages are unavailable.
We are able to return to work in both treatment rooms and mobile visiting clients in their homes. There are obviously a number of ways sessions will be adapted to follow the AOR Covid-19 Secure Workplace Policy and these can be seen in the below post.
Exciting news and can't wait to see you soon!
STAYING SAFE DURING COVID-19
As shared with you in June, we were fortunate enough to have time to prepare for the green light for Reflexologists to return to work. Every client will be taken through the measures we will be taking, however these include:
Face coverings/masks worn for both client and therapist
Individual use of soft furnishings and textiles
Pre-appointment Covid-19 Risk Assessments
Strict hand washing/santising strategy.
Every measure taken should lead to you feeling even more relaxed during your treatment!
TREATMENT ROOM & AT HOME
We are following guidance that now Reflexology treatments can resume that they will be available both within the Wild Air Wellbeing therapy room, and also within the client's own home.
This guidance has come from the Government and is reflected in the Association of Reflexologists' guidelines. All Reflexology sessions will have health safety as paramount importance and this will be worked through with each individual client when treatments recommence.
There are adaptations for mobile treatments within clients' homes, but these are no less strict or protective of both client and therapist.
VULNERABLE CLIENTS: COVID-19
Now Reflexology is allowed to be practised again in England, I will be following all of the Association of Reflexologists' guidelines.
One of these guidelines is regarding the treatment of different classifications of clients. The Government has separated 'Vulnerable' and 'Extremely Vulnerable' persons within their different guidelines. 'Vulnerable' clients, such as pregnant and elderly clients are able to be treated after initial consultation and risk assessment advises as per usual. However 'Extremely Vulnerable' clients will unfortunately not be able to be treated. Please do view the NHS information here and contact me with any queries or questions: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/people-at-higher-risk/whos-at-higher-risk-from-coronavirus/
17TH JUNE 2020
We are currently awaiting information from the Government on when therapies, including Reflexology, can resume. I am very fortunate that as a member of the Association of Reflexologists I have been given access to much information in anticipation of returning to treatments.
Although the therapy environment will have to evolve to protect the health security of both the client and myself, I believe the Reflexology treatments will still be highly beneficial, and offer relaxing and uplifting experiences, especially in these troubled times.
I will be following the Association of Reflexologists' Covid-19 Secure Workplace Policy and will post relevant information on this page when possible.
Thank you for your patience,
Wild Air Wellbeing
