CurDane Bodywork - Ciara Curtin
Covid 19 Polices in Place
Lets get to the protocols!!
There are many to go through,
The association, ANMPT,
has given a beautiful guide for touch therapists to return to work,
which I am fully installing,
alongside the physical therapies register guidelines and
the World Health Organisation guidelines.
We all have family members we are trying to protect,
including myself, so all protocols will be taken with extreme seriousness.
You will Receive an email with a form the week before your appointment.
The form will be done through Type Form.
There is no printing or downloading apps,
just simply clicking on a link,
a few clicks to answer the questions
and one final click to submit,
which will return the form to me via email.
Alongside is a copy of the form from ANMPT,
which I will be transferring to electrical via Type Form.
You will receive a text reminder of appointment
24hrs before session, and to confirm all is okay.
As covered in previous email,
There is a half hr gap between each person,
this is to allow for complete cleaning and removal of previous items.
Door handles, switches, all items used or in area
will also be cleaned between sessions amongst other items.
i.e biros used, floors as touching feet putting back on socks.
All books, colourings, magazines and blankets/ cushions
have been removed from the Waiting room
to prevent any point of cross contamination.
The centre will certainly be looking a little bare on return!
There will be a sanitisation station inside the door
which I will be asking everyone to use on arrival,
this will also be cleaned between people.
There will also be a disposable mask on this table for your use,
if you do not have your own mask.
Masks will be mandatory for both myself and yourself,
I would love to see you with masks of your own
but if not I will have placed one mask in waiting room before your arrival
once again only one to ensure no cross over contamination.
I will have a digital temperature gun
which can be taken without any touch.
This will be done on arrival in the waiting room.
Just a couple of seconds and we proceed to the niceties 🤗
The sofa is getting a waterproof, wipeable cover.
As you can see I'm locking down on any and every cross over
from one person to the next.
(I am hoping this item will arrive in time,
if not you may find the sofa removed for now.
There will be a little rearrange,
and screening off of one side of the room.
Here there will also be a lot of removals for now,
such as cushions, rugs, decorations or
any items that can create a point of cross contamination.
For bodywork sessions
I have invested in a thermal top massage Table,
this means you will now be lying comfortably on a heated table,
that can be fully cleaned in between clients.
For sports massage
I have gotten a cover for the massage table
that can be fully cleaned in between each person,
Thankfully, Blankets are back on the list.
I will have one white fleece blanket for over you,
which will be removed between clients
and replaced with a fresh blanket.
All clean blankets will be kept in a sealed container
to ensure no cross contamination.
I will be using Zoono Fog room cleaner at the weekends.
Ontop of the cleans in-between each person and the weekly clean.
I will have a mask on mandatory.
During treatments around the head,
I will also wear a head shield.
I will also have aprons that will be replaced between each client,
these are cleanable and washable aprons.
The main one I believe is the masks.
as it is a virus passed mainly through the
mouth, nose via droplets in air
and eyes (on contact)
scientists have confirmed no transfer through physical touch,
once clean i.e not contaminated from touching your face
or a surface contaminated by another's droplets.
Do ask questions if anything here is confusing
or you want to know more.
I am working with my associations alongside HSE guidelines.
I know there is a lot here.
All will be updated continuously as HSE/ WHO
change or update guidelines.
We will get there,
and in time normality will resume.
I am also asking for no attendees with clients for the moment,
Just the solo person for their booked treatment.
I have received a question on my pricing and whether it will change.
I know many many places are raising their prices,
some very understandable, some tactile,
it is for sure a strange time.
I hope to keep my prices the same for now,
I will try to take the hit and evaluate later,
we have all been hit in different ways,
hitting back is not the answer in my heart.
Also so much has changed,
to keep some things the same maybe nice.
So the full price for the hr at €60 remains
with the regulars price being the €50.
(all other time slot prices are up on the information - q&a page as usual.)
I will however be removing the special offers for a short period of time.
I don't have the use of a card machine,
I will be continuing with cash,
as paper is not a prominent medium for spread,
once we take precautions and handle correctly.
For anyone nervous about handling cash,
do get in touch and I can give you my banking online details
so payment can be made online before treatment.
There is always a way...
