Important announcements following recent guidance published by the UK Government relating to England.
Recent announcements by the UK Government have identified that from 00:01 on 2nd December 2020, Sedbergh moved into Tier 2 of the Government 3 tier resistriction system for England. This means that face to face appointments are available for all sports massage, exercise rehabilitation and personal training. Further detail follows:
Sports massage therapy
All therapists are currently allowed to work; clinic-based, home-based and mobile for new and existing clients. If at Client's home, they must be within Tiers 1 or 2. In ALL tiers, sports massage therapists are able to continue working under normal conditions, without the need for pre-screening or emergency’s only.
As a Level 4 registered member of the Sports Massage Association, I am familiar with the legislation on Close Contact working and follow all advice regarding risk assessment, hygiene, cleaning procedures, ventilation etc., to ensure I am Covid secure. Please note:
Exercise rehabilitation and Personal Training.
I am allowed to work 'home based', fitness studio, gym or mobile (at a client's home). All sessions must be limited to myself plus client(s) from a single household or sosial bubble.
In Tier 2. Indoor fitness and movement/dance classes are only permitted in household or social bubbles. Outdoor classes can continue - however, the implications of weather and daylight at this time of year mean I will not currently be running any exercise classes.
All the above are activities are bound by Government guidelines to ensure the activity is COVID-19 COMPLIANT. I can assure all clients that I have completed risk assessments, am insured and have minimised equipment used and that all equipment which is used has been thoughly cleaned both before and after use. I also have the appropriate PPE available should it be mandated or should the need arise. Please follow the regularly updated UK Government advice.
Thank you for your support at this difficult time. Although limited in what I can offer, I'm incredibly grateful to those clients are able and continue to use my services.
