What I am doing to protect you and me
From Monday 12th April 2021, close contact treatments including massage can recommence.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19 businesses have had to change procedures for the safety of everyone. Below you can find a brief overveiw of what Robyn’s Holistics is doing to protect both Clients and Therapist.

At your treatment
Clients will be asked to try not to arrive at their treatments more than 5 minutes early unless they have contacted me to check it is ok. This is to allow for adequate disinfection procedures to take effect.
Clients will be encouraged to use hand sanitiser on entering the clinic.
Clients are encouraged to bring their own water
Clients are encouraged to attend treatments on their own to limit any unnecessary contact
In accordance with Government guidance I will be wearing a mask as I feel this will help to sufficiently reduce the risk levels. I will be happy to provide disposable masks if you would like to wear one, but this only at your own discretion.
Clients will not see this but there will be a disposable waterproof layer under usual massage couch linens. This is to protect the couch upholstery during sanitisation procedures.
Cash will still be accepted but the old £20 notes will not. This is because they are not waterproof and therefore cannot be washed with soap and water.
Contactless payments are encouraged either by Credit/Debit Card, Google Pay, Apple Pay or similar.
Due to the nature of the business, hygiene and cleaning were always a high priority. If you wish to read details of my sanitising/cleaning routine, you can find it in the COVID Risk Assessment.
Public Health England have categorised two groups of vulnerable people. These are the Extremely Vulnerable/High Risk group, who should have received a letter from the NHS advising them to shield. The current advice for the Extremely Vulnerable is that they should defer treatment until the Risk level from the Government has been lowered and it is safe for them to receive close contact treatments.
The Vulnerable/Moderate risk group are advised to speak to their GP before receiving and close contact treatment. If you are identified in this group and would like some information for your GP I will be happy to help with this.
If you are unsure whether or not you fit into any of these categories more information can be found at: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/people-at-higher-risk/whos-at-higher-risk-from-coronavirus/
If you have had COVID-19 it is important that you consult with your GP before receiving close contact treatments. This is due to findings of long term effects which may affect the suitability for treatment.
It is important to me that clients feel comfortable coming for a treatment. If anyone has any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Equally, if you have any feedback, e.g. you like the way I am doing something or you think I should be doing something differently please let me know. COVID-19 has been a learning curve for people in many different ways and it is important to support others wherever we can.
