I do not discriminate against anyone for their health choices, medical status or mental health.  We acknowledge that mask wearing is not possible for some patients, and am registered as a supportive business on the Hidden Disabilities website.

Currently- masks are not required for any patients anyway though of course you are free to wear one if you wish.  I will be wearing a mask when I am doing the treatment and therefore less than 1m distance from your face, but if you prefer I can also wear one for the entire appointment.  Please let me know what you are comfortable with.

You do not need to explain your reason, please feel free to notify me on booking your appointment.

Equally, if you wish to purchase an N95 mask for your visit to be extra safe, please notify me on booking, as this will be what will be worn by your practitioner.

There are many reasons for not being able to wear a mask, including Trauma survivors, people with certain types of Anxiety or other mental health issues, Autism, COPD, Asthma and other reasons. 

No-one should be shamed for not wearing a mask, or for other medical choices.

We have hygiene practices in place, with extra cleaning, gaps between patients, wipe clean surfaces and the usual frequent hand sanitising,  and disposables where necessary.
