COVID-19 : PROTECTING OUR SAFETY
The Scottish Government has published the Covid-19 regulations. These can be viewed here.
Please take time to familiarise yourself with the current restrictions relating to your own council area.
OPEN FOR BUSINESS?
Massage Therapy at whatever level – Advanced, Remedial, Sports, is categorised under Complementary and Alternative Medicine. The CAM industry is classed by the government as ‘non-essential’ close contact retail services’.
In North Lanarkshire, (currently Tier 4), my business cannot operate. Please refer here for further updates as to when restrictions are eased.
The Scottish Massage Therapists Organisation has provided helpful guidance to its members.
CLINIC PROTOCOLS FOR CLIENTS
INVESTMENT IN CLINIC SPACE
Protecting OUR safety is of utmost importance. I have made a significant investment in my clinic space. A hot handwashing sink is now installed in the clinic and new contract flooring has been laid, replacing the carpet to allowing enhanced hygiene. A new on-line booking system has been implemented with an on-line payment facility removing the need for cash. Additional PPE and equipment investment has been made in the form of disposable towels, gloves, masks, visors and essential cleaning materials, bins, clothing and personal effects boxes.
