Reflexology case studies will resume during May of 2020 as per “returning to safe operation Phase 2“. Existing and new case study subjects are now required to fill out a form before setting up their first session upon opening in June of 2020. Should you experience any of the following symptoms throughout the session duration, please let me know so that we can rebook accordingly.
Because we will be working together within 6 feet, it is suggested that both myself and you wear a non-medical mask while in the clinic space. Please bring your own mask and thank you. Only 1 person is permitted in unit per session.
Masks and sometimes gloves will be used for each session
Pre and post sanitization of all surfaces
Mandatory hand washing before subject enters space, prior to and post session
Provide disposable paper towel available for drying hands
Provide fresh linen for each session as per usual
To wash tools before and after use
To wash your hands upon entering unit according to WorkSafe BC
UPDATE March 16: Sessions will be suspended until further notice. I will contact people to rebook.
I take all viruses and flues very seriously. In 2004, after contracting a virus, I was left with long lasting vertigo complications. Since major surgery in 2018, I have noticed I am not as resistant to flues and viruses as I used to be, and they can circle back around several times, lasting much longer. Last year when I travelled to Europe, I caught a virus on the plane that took 2 months to resolve. I have a sensitive immune and nervous system, which means I must take extra precaution for myself and for you.
My future protocol reflexology: I check in ahead of session to see how the subjects are feeling. If anyone is feeling unwell, I reschedule and have done so several times as of lately. I am also enforcing hand-washing protocols when people enter our unit and have disinfectant wipes for all surfaces. I have masks and gloves on hand for every session.
I have also hoarded 10 packages of toilet paper, just in case (joke).
My traveling kit consists of three types of masks: Humidiflyer, Virus Shield and surgical masks. I will also carry hand sanitizer and gloves.
Please familiarize yourself with the following information.
Those at risk:
Who are aged 65 and older.
With compromised immune systems.
With pre-existing medical conditions.
You can help flatten the curve by:
Avoiding touching your face.
Washing your hand thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
Trying to keep a distance of 1.8 metres from other people when in public.
Avoiding large crowd gatherings.
Working from home if you can.
Things to look out for:
Pneumonia (which would be confirmed via a chest X-ray).
Symptoms could present between 2 and 14 days after exposure. Not everyone with COVID-9 will have symptoms, and some will only experience mild discomfort.
