What to expect prior to your appointment of Bowen Therapy?

1 When an appointment is made for the first time, there will be an option to have a 30-minute free online consultation. Treatments now must be kept to a maximum of 60 minutes. Although many people prefer to talk face to face at the appointment, some find it easier online and this is fine. First and foremost, you need to feel comfortable about having the treatment.

2 An email will be sent to you confirming the appointment day, time and place and directions to the clinic. In this email will be advice as to what to wear and a little bit about Bowen Therapy, the cost and how to pay. There will be a request to wear a mask upon entering the clinic and you will be advised that I will be in full PPE (mask, visor and apron). There will be attachments on the email which will be

(a) Consultation Form
(b) Covid Risk Assessment
(c) GDPR Guidelines
(d) Track and Trace and Digital Consultation acceptance form.

All these forms are in word format, so they are able to be completed and returned online. However, if you have any problem with this they can all (with the exception of the covid risk assessment) be brought with you to the appointment. The covid risk assessment needs to be completed 12 – 24 hours prior to appointment to ensure that we are certain you are able to receive treatment and to ensure that no-one with any possible symptoms (as they keep changing) arrives at the clinic. If you are unable to complete this for any reason, please do advise me and I will give you a call prior to your appointment and bring a form with me for you to complete.

Please do always contact me if you have any questions about any of this as there is a lot to take in now.

Upon arrival at The Wellness Centre

1 There will be a 30 minute cleaning and ventilation time prior to your appointment so please do not arrive early.
2 Please come to the appointment on your own unless you need a chaperone or are bringing a child. I will be the only therapist in the clinic.
3 The door will be open for your arrival, so please do come in, wearing a mask and with minimal personal belongings please.
4 You will be asked to place your belongings in a box which you are welcome to bring with you into the therapy room or leave in the waiting area.
5 You will be asked to remove shoes and leave them in the waiting area, slippers are provided if you would like to wear them.
6 I will then take your temperature and ask you to wash your hands. Individual towels are provided for this and put into a pedal bin.
7 We can then go into my therapy room. Here, (with the exception of the antiviral machine which has been proven to kill 995 of viruses and bacteria) you will see no difference. I feel it important that you are able to relax. All of the towel, couch covers, fleeces etc are removed after each person and washed and the room is thoroughly cleaned and ventilated for 30 minutes before being used again.
8 You are welcome to wash your hands again or use anti bac gel upon leaving the clinic. I will open the door for you.
9 If you would like to see a copy of the covid risk assessment and cleaning log for The Wellness Centre do please contact me. You are more
than welcome.

I am very sorry about all these protocols, but my main concern is to keep everyone safe,

If you have any questions or concerns, please do contact me on 07710722615 or email me at info@abalancedbodywithbowen.co.uk. In all honesty they do not take long, it just all appears very lengthy and like you I will be very happy when we can return to some sort of normality!
