Last Updated 5th January 2021
With the latest Government update on the 4th January, we are still able to offer face to face appointments subject to pre-screening, following local restrictions, relevant health and safety guidelines and other government guidance.
This means we will ask you to complete Covid screening questions, safety / suitability questions and a consent form, in order to minimise risk to you and our staff and you will be asked to follow any safety procedures that are put in place to help us achieve this.
We will continue to offer virtual appointments where appropriate and will conduct risk assessments before booking any face to face appointments, as part of our infection prevention control measures.
We will continue to consider and offer our telehealth virtual consultation / treatments as a first option where possible.
You can expect us to be open about our approach to infection control, and we are happy to explain how we are following any relevant guidance.
If you require more information, please feel free to ask as we want you to feel reassured before attending.
Staying physically well and active is an important part of remaining healthy and being resilient to disease, and we want to ensure our clients and staff remain healthy. We have also included some top tips for improving your immune system below.
TOP TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR IMMUNITY:
• Increased stress is directly related to a decrease in immune function. Meditation can help you relax which is very important (especially at times like these!) and so here is a free meditation app that you can try https://www.brain.fm/login?next=/app/refer-a-friend (We have no affiliation with Brain FM other than using it ourselves)
• Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables – these are packed with nutrients that will help your body fight any potential infections.
• Drink plenty of water – your body will flush out toxins and this helps improve your immunity
• Avoid processed foods and keep dairy to a minimum. These foods increase inflammation in the body which you want to avoid.
• Don’t drink too much coffee and avoid alcohol entirely; these can dehydrate your body and do not help immunity.
• Keep active with light exercise at home. With the changes in our way of life, your activity levels have probably dropped which is not healthy short or long term. There is a lot of evidence to show that movement and exercise is beneficial to the immune system.
• Get plenty of fresh air if possible; whether that is opening windows, walking, standing in the garden or balcony, do what you can to get enough fresh air into your body. Again, there is evidence that fresh air and sunlight can help to speed up recovery. You do not want to be sat in an airless room re-breathing the same air.
