Nature To Nurture – Hope To Be Back Soon!
I do hope that you & your loved ones are safe & well. I am very much thinking about all those affected by the current pandemic every day. As with so many who work face-to-face with people, due to the current Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic I have already stopped seeing clients for Massage Treatments.
From my personal point of view supporting you & helping you to feel better this has been an extremely difficult decision as I would love to see you. I absolutely love my job & don’t want to stop it. As a self-employed person who has built up a business over nearly a decade I would also love to see you & earn a living. However, it’s not about me, it’s all about you & everyone else & my social responsibility not to spread infection. Neither of us may be displaying symptoms & as Coronavirus Covid-19 has an incubation period of 14 days either of us could be infected & not know it.
The reason that Coronavirus Covid-19 is a pandemic & so dangerous is partly because of the rate of infection. Influenza usually results in you infecting c. 1.3 other people which means that after 10 interactions from people you have infected, you would have infected a total of about 14 other people. With Covid-19 you infect up to 3 other people, so when you do the same maths you may have infected up to 59,000 other people. These are scary numbers & this point was made brilliantly (& more clearly than me) by Intensive Care Specialist Professor Hugh Montgomery in this video, please do watch it, it’s only 2 minutes long: Professor Hugh Montgomery on Coronavirus
If You Have A Booking
I will be contacting all my clients currently booked in personally about this. I would also like to contact my regular clients occasionally just to check that you are ok & to ask if you need any support or help, especially my clients in the at risk categories, although I will check that this is ok to do so.
My practice hygiene standards are still in place so by the definition of the current legislation I can still see clients who have a severe medical need, but this may change in the future depending on the Government advice. I will also be unlikely to do this given the severity of the current situation. I may only consider this if you:
- are showing no symptoms of Covid-19
- are not in an at risk category
- have been self-isolating & practicing social distancing for the last 2 weeks
- really need to see me due to a medical need that can’t be helped any other way safely
If you really feel that this is the case please contact me to discuss.
In the meantime I will continue to post regularly about ways to support you as best I can so that:
- Your muscles & physical health don’t suffer too badly from their lack of massage & Aromatherapy TLC
- To help your mental health & well-being at a difficult & challenging time
- Hints & tips relevant to the current situation
- Most importantly my Aromatherapy, Natural Products, Online & Telephone Consultancy are still available for anyone missing their essential oil TLC
Thanks & Gratitude
I would like to take this opportunity to send a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all my clients for your support until now & in particular to all those clients who have made donations & offered to pay for treatments they have not had in order to support me & keep me going at a time of zero income. As a self-employed low income business I am relieved to say that I qualify for Universal Credit & will look into the Self-Employment Income Scheme; I also plan to volunteer for the NHS in the future.
If you do feel in need of any support, or are simply feeling lonely, anxious or concerned please do get in touch. We may be separated but we can all work together to look after each other as humans 🤝
