We would like to inform you about the measures that are being followed and the protocol that the studio uses. These guidelines are in agreement with the government and RIVM. This assures you of a minimal risk of the Corona virus while receiving treatment. In order to guarantee safety as much as possible and to minimize the risk, we also ask our customers to adhere to certain guidelines so that the studio is a place where everyone who is healthy can go with a sense of safety and trust. These guidelines are listed below.

 

Is it safe to have a treatment?
Yes, this certainly is the case if certain measures and protocols are observed. All guidelines from RIVM have been converted into a protocol. The studio is equipped with an advanced ventilation system with an automatic CO2 censor. This ensures a direct discharge of exhaled air. If you need treatment but still have doubts or would like an extra safety measure, you can choose to wear a mask yourself. The practitioner will always wear a face mask and extra time will be planned around the appointment to ensure your safety as much as possible.
Despite all the precautions taken, the chance remains, however small, that you will become infected on the way to your treatment, during or on the way back. By making the appointment you agree to this risk.


Protocol around treatment and appointment:
On the day of the appointment, the studio will contact you to ensure that it is justified to continue the appointment, or that it is better to reschedule the appointment at a later time.

  • Stay at 1.5 meters distance when possible.

  • No hands are shaken.

  • Customers are requested to wash / disinfect hands with hand alcohol. Paper towels are available for drying hands.

 

Request to our customers:

  • Bring 2 large bath towels / towels that have been washed at a minimum of 60 degrees. These towels have not been used for anything else after washing and are only used for your treatment.

  • Take as little belongings as possible and leave jewelry at home.

  • Please sneeze and cough in your elbow.

  • Face mask and / or gloves are required. When using it, make sure that it has been properly cleaned before treatment.

  • Come to your treatment alone.

  • Bring your own bottle of water. Due to hygiene measures, no water will be poured during or after the treatment.

 

Furthermore, the following applies:

  • During the treatment there will hardly be spoken.

  • Contact surfaces in the practice area and the rest of the building are regularly disinfected.

  • The treatment table is disinfected after each treatment and covers are replaced as usual.

  • The face is not treated.

  • Massage is mainly done in the prone position. By not lying, or at least lying supine, transmission of the virus is minimized.

 

Health questions
Below you can read eight questions you should ask yourself before an appointment. These questions are asked again before the treatment. If you answer YES to one of the following questions, we would like to ask you to cancel or reschedule the appointment in practice. This can therefore also be an hour in advance.
