COVID-19 precautions

Sunday, 22 March, 16:00

To keep my clients informed about what procedures I have in place in light of COVID-19 outbreak:

Obviously, my work is primarily person to person, and hands-on, by its nature.

It has always been my practice to wash my hands with hot water and hand wash before and after touching every client, and I have always had a hands-free tap in my treatment room for this purpose. I also wash my hands frequently with hot water and hand wash during a treatment session; for example, if I’ve finished doing Shiatsu/bodywork and I am about to administer acupuncture; or after I’ve been writing up notes, and I’m about to remove the acupuncture needles.

I have always used single-use, disposable paper bed covers on my treatment table and face cradle, and single-use, disposable paper hand towels.

In addition to these standard practices, since Monday, 16 March, after every client, I have been wiping down the face cradle and treatment table, as well as other contact points (door-knobs, light-switches, etc.) with hospital-grade disinfectant.

Effecting payment by EFT from your phone will be the safest and preferred option. I do have a contactless point of sale system, but for transactions over $100 clients would need to touch a keypad to enter their PIN. I am wiping down the keypad after every transaction with 70% isopropyl alcohol disinfectant .

I can offer online herbal medicine consultations, via Zoom. Payment can be made online, and herbal prescriptions can then be picked up with no person-to-person contact. Please note that, currently, private health funds will not cover the cost of online consultations.

Obviously, I will be keeping abreast of and complying with official directives, and I will post updates here and on my blog page. To receive notifications of updates, please subscribe to my blog.

Stay well, and please look out for your neighbours, especially the vulnerable.

Thank you

Karl
