Holistic Health SPRING 2020 COVID 19 UPDATE
Sadly, like many other complementary health therapists, I have been unable to offer my usual clinics and appointments to my Holistic Health clients. As a CranioSacral Therapist I have been taking guidance from my Registering Body, the CranioSacral Therapy Association who have been issuing monthly updates as the Government Advice changes re lockdown and permissible activities.
This was their latest update: CSTA Coronavirus Guidelines Update for members.
In the light of recent Government guidance on social distancing, the CSTA strongly advises that until further notice CSTA members should cease hands on treatment and in-person contact with clients with immediate effect. Given the impact it will have on livelihoods this decision is a difficult one to make; however the CSTA believes it to be the right one to assist stemming the spread of Covid-19, which can be transmitted to others by those who have no or mild symptoms. It is paramount to safeguard the health of our clients, and our own health. We have a duty of care both as CST practitioners and individual members of our global community to do all we can to help end this world health crisis.
I am also a trained and registered Homoeopath, abiding by the Regulations set by the Society of Homoeopaths, as this is a talking therapy the guidance set by the Society of Homoeopaths differs from that of the CSTA: As the global health crisis continues and the UK faces ongoing restrictions, the Society of Homoeopaths unreservedly supports the Government guidelines regarding social distancing to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
The COVID-19 pandemic places everyone in isolation and Society Registered members are adapting to the situation by offering online and telephone consultations only. Patients are advised to contact their local registered homeopath directly for support and advice around their general health and wellbeing. Our advice to all remains to monitor closely the latest guidance issued by UK Government website regarding the spread of COVD-19.
I continue to offer Homoeopathic support, advice and remedies if consulted by phone, email, Skype or WhatsAp. My mobile number: 07713485110 and email address: firstname.lastname@example.org are my contact details for this new way of working. My website will also be updated and have this content displayed under Blog: www.cathybrooks.co.uk
