Lockdown has been such an interesting time, a time of watching the world from the safety of my home, of watching interactions on line, of watching a further polarising of us, with all the judgements around what is and isnt essential, what is acceptable behaviour and what isn’t.
I had to challenge my own judgements to.
I enjoyed having time off, spending it at home, thanks to the good weather, getting stuff done in our garden including some ‘upcycling’ projects: tires and old fence turned into seating and a flower bed, a shed refloored with the same old fencing – and turned into my wee sanctuary at home – a space to reflect, meditate and exercise.
Ive had the time to complete courses I’ve had my eye on for a while, Ive completed additional training around Covid-19.
Ive had the time to create my online membership, offering you a wealth of knowledge that I have gained in my 15plus years as a therapist, sharing with you a way to learn to live a vibrant, energised long, healthy life. A membership where ALL training & information is available at once – you are not drip fed, it is added to weekly with advice, suggestions, meditations all to help you find YOUR balance – find the Wu Wei for you that will allow you to make adjustments to your life, be that food, handling your emotions, the quality and frequency of resting and movement.
Returning to Acupuncture Care
With phase 1 now in place in Scotland I am able to return to work with some changes:
Things I have done to minimise risk: I have completed several covid-19 specific courses and attended numerous online meetings with my regulatory body, I have completed a fresh risk assessment and made a few modifications to how the clinic will look, basically it looks and feels more clinical! less pretty stuff that would be difficult to clean!
- British Medical Journal Covid-19 training
- London School of Hygiene and Tropical Diseases Covid-19 training
- Clinic policy
There will be some changes to your sessions, with a pre screening, consultation online before the face to face. during the session absolutely minimal chat time (hence the online before hand) physical distancing will be strictly adhered too when possible, with carefully thought out and risk assessed times under that magic 2 meters.
It will be an adjustment for all of us I think – I am a naturally tactile person and miss that contact with others already – so to be working with people and not physically comfort then, let alone shake hands will be difficult – but FOR NOW its the best course of action.
