As of 4th November the Sports Massage Association have published guidance relating to sports and deep tissue massage services provided by their members. Massage services can continue to operate with the following provisions:
That the service operates from a clinical setting.
The service is delivered by a level 4 or 5 therapist or Degree level therapist.
The treatment is clinically justifiable.
Triage and screening of clients occurs prior to any appointment and that PPE and all cleaning and infection control provisions are in place.
I am pleased to report the clinic can meet all these requirements and both Dan and Liz Guest are able to continue to treat patients during this lockdown.
Physiotherapy treatments, including hands on therapy remain open and available to all our clients as we are governed and regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council.
