We are Covid Secure
There is nothing more important to us than your safety. Because of this, we have implemented stringent Covid Secure safe practice guidelines laid down by the British Acupuncture Council - the gold standard in safe practice for acupuncturists during the pandemic.
We won't be able to see you if...
...there is a real risk that you are infected with Covid-19 or have been exposed to someone who is. We'll ask some screening questions to assess this risk before you come in.
When you come to the clinic
You will need to wear a face covering, usually for the whole time that you are in the building. If you don't have your own, we'll provide one for you. Examples of exceptions are if you have a breathing difficulty such as asthma, or you are lying face-down on the treatment couch.
You will be asked to use hand sanitiser gel when you enter.
Please arrive as close to your appointment start time as possible, rather than early. This avoids having too many people in the same area at the same time.
Please attend your appointment alone, unless you need a carer or help with things like mobility. You are welcome to make video calls during your session.
Please take care to remain two meters away from anyone else in the building, including your acupuncturist. Your acupuncturist will approach you when necessary during the treatment itself.
We will always wear a face mask and may also wear a visor at times. We won’t wear gloves when taking your pulse or inserting needles but may wear gloves at other times. As before, there will be plenty of hand washing!
