Head to Toe Therapies Updates
Infection Control Training Completed
November 11, 2020
In order to give clients and therapists confidence when receiving treatments during the Coronavirus pandemic, Head to Toe Therapies have completed a course in Infection Control. The course was provided by Jennifer Young Training and accredited by the Federation of Holistic Therapists. A complete risk assessment has been carried out and is available to clients if they would like to review it. Please contact us if you would like to ask any questions regarding this.
Clients will be emailed a coronavirus/Covid 19 screening form 24hrs before each treatment and they can also feel assured that the therapist will also have assessed any risk to the client before attending the appointment. This is to ensure everyone's safety during this pandemic so we appreciate your understanding at this time.
Therapists will wear a face mask and visor throughout the treatment to comply with the legislation that is currently in place.

Covid 19/Coronavirus Update
October 16, 2020
The government have announced that all close contact businesses need to close for 4 weeks from the 16th of October. In line with this policy I will stop all appointments until we are told that we can re-open. This is to help reduce the spread of the virus and ensure everyone's safety. Your safety is of the utmost importance to me and the following policy has been designed for your safety during this time.
This policy outlines some of the key measures I have taken to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus (COVID-19). Please note the content may be subject to change.
Adhering to guidelines
Throughout the pandemic, I will be following guidelines issued by the government, NHS, other relevant authorities and my professional association, the Federation of Holistic Therapists, regarding safe and hygienic practice and the use of any personal protective equipment (PPE).
COVID-19 Risk Assessment
I have carried out a full risk assessment, in line with guidance from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), in order to:
identify what work activity or situations might cause transmission of the virus;
think about who could be at risk;
decide how likely it is that someone could be exposed; and to
act to remove the activity or situation, or if this isn’t possible, control the risk.
Prior to seeing any of my clients, I will be:
monitoring my own health and deferring treatments if I have COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19.
contacting my clients 24 hours in advance and deferring any treatments if: they have COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19; are clinically extremely vulnerable and shielding; anyone in their household has COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19; they have been in close contact with someone who has symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 14 days; they have been contacted by the NHS Test and Trace Service and told to self isolate.
asking my clients to call and cancel and defer treatment on the morning of their appointment if they have a temperature or other symptoms of COVID-19.
Enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures
I have introduced enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures between clients, which includes washing and disinfecting any non-porous surfaces and therapy equipment, such as chairs and couches, and replacing any porous or single-use items, such as towels and couch roll. Strict personal hygiene measures will also be adhered to, including regular handwashing/ sanitising.
Adapting or restricting treatments
It may be necessary for me to adapt or restrict certain treatments, in order to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 and/or protect my clients’ health and safety. Any clients likely to be impacted will be advised as soon as possible.
Maintaining social distancing
Please note that while many treatments involve close contact, I will be observing social distancing measures wherever possible. This might include, for example, maintaining an appropriate distance during the consultation process, and when arriving and leaving for an appointment.
If a treatment is cancelled or deferred at short notice because my client has COVID-19 or has symptoms of COVID-19, any standard cancellation fees will be waivered. The client will be asked to kindly confirm in writing that their appointment has been cancelled or deferred because they have COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19.

I am happy to be contacted to discuss any aspect of your treatment during this time.
