There have been some changes in the way this second lockdown will affect my business so please read carefully.
I have now joined the CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council) who have sought legal advice on whether complementary healthcare practitioners registered with them can remain open under the national restrictions. They have been advised that we are allowed to treat clients as long as you are coming for reflexology for an identified mental or physical health condition or injury that is causing you pain, or having an adverse impact on your mobility or your quality of life. The reason for this is that it could help to support the NHS by preventing hospital admissions further down the line.
I am not allowed to do mobile treatments unless I have received a direct referral from a statutory regulated health professional. The Teddington treatment room will remain closed for now as the access (through the house) isn't COVID-secure, however the Putney treatment room will be open on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays.
I will be updating my risk assessment form to include a question to confirm that you fall into the category of clients that I am allowed to treat during this time.
For those of you that we cannot prove the treatment is essential to your health or mental wellbeing, I will be allowed to treat you again from 2nd December- provided the lockdown isn't extended.
Please get in contact if you are unsure and we can discuss further. I hope you can understand these new changes in the rules.
All the best,
