COVID-19 Guidelines


The following guidelines have been introduced in line with Government and British Acupuncture Council guidelines, as well those of the clinics I work in. All are in place to minimise risk to all patients and practitioners using the clinic.

General clinic guidelines

On arrival please

  • arrive more or less exactly on time as it's preferable that time spent in the waiting room is minimised as much as possible.
  • text me on arrival and I'll come down and let you in as there is limited reception in both clinics during this time.
  • wear a face-covering on entering the clinic initially.
  • use the sanitiser provided as soon as possible after entering the clinic.
Guidelines for patients in the treatment room
  • Sanitise hands once more.
  • I will supply you with a surgical mask if you aren't already wearing one. Wearing a non-fluid resitant surgical mask is the current NHS and BAcC guideline for patients in clinic.
  • Fill out the BAcC COVID-19 consent form.

During treatment I will be wearing a fluid resistant surgical mask (FRSM type IIR) at all times and add a visit when I look at your tongue for diagnostic diagnostic purposes. I will endeavour to make sure I step back as often as possible and spend as little time in close proximity as I practically can. In addition, the room will be well ventilated during the treatment - if you’re cold I have blankets that are washed after each patient.
