Shiatsu Protocol at the Heathy Living Centre
Updated on 04/01/21
~ Before your visit ~
1) You will be asked a few questions about your general health conditions and symptoms prior to a session. Please reply by email by the day before your session day.
2) Please also reply to the text message you will receive on the morning of your session concerning any change in your health. Re: no high temperature, no new continuous cough, no loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.*
3) Blankets will be washed after every session if used, but please consider bringing an extra layer of clothing to put on in case you feel colder during the treatment (which is very common), to reduce environmental impact.
4) Please wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing (no jeans, shorts or skirt), ideally with long sleeves to minimise direct skin contact. Also, if you’d like the feet to be worked on please wear or bring socks.
*The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
– a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
– a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
– a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
~ When you arrive ~
1) I’d like to advise you to arrive on time, not early, as the shop (Mother Earth) cannot be a waiting area. I will let you in through HLC door (not shop).
2) I will ask you to use alcohol hand rub and to wear a mask which I will provide at the door. (If you’d like to use yours, that’s fine, too.)
3) The surface of the couch bed will be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol before and after a session.
4) I’d recommend you to visit the lavatory at home before you depart. In case you need to use it here please note the following:
- Please put the lid down before flashing.
- Please use the soap when washing your hands.
~ During a session ~
1) I will wash my hands just before a treatment and will wear a visor and a mask.
2) Please wear a mask during a treatment.
3) The windows and curtains in the treatment room will be open to allow the free flow of air. If this is not feasible a diffuser (juniper berry) will be used to cleanse and moisten the air.
