Please visit this page regularly. We will update our policy based on current government directives.
Last Update: 1 June 2020
Notification about COVID-19/Coronavirus
The COVID-19 strain of coronavirus has caused an outbreak of respiratory infections in most nations of the world. On the 11th of March 2020, COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation. More information about what defines a pandemic, what this means and the COVID-19 virus can be found on the NSW Department of Health website.
Symptoms of COVID-19 infection
It is important that we are all aware of the symptoms of COVID-19 infection.
From the Department of Health website:
“Patients may have fever, cough, runny nose, shortness of breath and other symptoms. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia with severe acute respiratory distress.”
This link contains more information on COVID-19, including statistics, symptoms and methods of avoiding spread of the infection.
Note that the symptoms of COVID-19/ Coronavirus are difficult to distinguish from a regular cold or flu.
Please call your doctor and seek their advice if you develop any of the symptoms listed above.
What COVID-19 means for us
This infection although reducing in its numbers, is still present in the community of NSW and in Sydney. Having experienced the recent lockdown and now coming out of this, many people are still naturally concerned about the virus and their risk of catching it and developing the infection.
The commitment of our clinics
In line with the Australian Government and Department of Health directives, the recommendations from the Esoteric Practitioners Association and the Australian Massage Therapy Association we belong to, we have opened our clinics and are able to offer “in person” sessions.
In line with re-opening our clinics our commitment to our infection control policy within our clinics remains of the highest standards as is our commitment to you and your health and wellbeing.
We will be screening each person who books in for a session with either a phone call or text message to check in that you don’t have any COVID-19 symptoms or you have not been in contact with anyone with COVID-19. If you do have any flu like symptoms or if you have been in contact with any person who has had COVID-19, we will not be able to treat you until you have a doctor’s certificate confirming that you do not have COVID-19.
Upon entering our clinics, you will be asked to go to the bathroom to wash your hands and to use the paper towels to dry your hands. Hand sanitiser is also available for use if you wish.
Our treatment tables and all surfaces of our clinics are wiped down after every session including door handles and the room is disinfected after each session. All towels are single use only and removed from the room after each session.
If you develop any flu like symptoms, please call us to re schedule your appointment for a latter time. Likewise, our commitment to you is that if we as practitioners experience any flu like symptoms, we will call you to reschedule your appointment. We will not be offering sessions, if at any point we are feeling unwell.
If you prefer not to come to our clinic – ONLINE sessions available
We are also still offering online sessions, if you prefer not to come to our clinics. ONLINE sessions can be a very effective way to get support where needed and keep your healing, health and wellbeing on track. Many of our clients have expressed how much they have been enjoying and valuing their online sessions with us. All our ONLINE sessions are tailored to your needs and can include Yoga/Yoga Therapy, Exercise, Meditation, Body Awareness, Relaxation and discussions. They can run from 30 min to 75 min and be arranged on skype, face time, zoom or by phone. We understand that not all of us are technology savvy so if you feel you need support on that level, reach out.
Please visit this page often, as we will be updating it regularly as new information comes to light.
If you have any questions or concerns that you wish to discuss do not hesitate to contact us, Donna 0408 783 187 or Alexandra 0434 926 657.
In this un-precedent time, stay steady, deeply self-care, claim a healthy rhythm, enjoy and look after each other.
If you need support, get in touch, we are here for you.
With love, Alexandra & Donna
