All treatments will last for the specified duration. Treatment time commences immediately after the consultation. The therapist has the right to reduce the treatment time if the client arrives late for their appointment.
Treatments will only be conducted if the treatment is safe for the client to receive. If any GP or Consultant permission is required, the client will be requested to provide this in writing before treatments can be received.
Therapies will be tailored for each client’s individual needs to give maximum benefit.
Client’s details will not be discussed with any third party, except in the circumstance where the client is referred to another practitioner, after which the therapist and client will agree what can be shared.
All information is kept securely on file.
All clients will need to complete, and sign, a confidential consultation form, which will include a medical history, prior to treatment. Clients will have a brief consultation as part of their treatment at the beginning of each treatment session.
All clients are asked to complete the consultation form and any further questions to the best of their knowledge. The client also agrees to provide updated information for any changes in on-going medical treatments as these may affect their therapy treatments.
Clients will arrive on time for their scheduled appointment. Failure to arrive on time may result in the treatment time being reduced accordingly.
By signing the consultation form, clients are giving the therapist permission to hold these records and records of completed treatments about them.
Client treatment details remain private and confidential between the client and the therapist.
Some personal information is held on the booking platform known as Timely and the current invoicing system is Xero. Neither of these platforms will contain information about the personal circumstances of the client.
The client is to recognise and understand that complementary and holistic therapies, and other similar body-work treatments, are not a substitute for medical examination or medical care. Complementary therapies are to be used alongside, rather than in place of conventional medical care. Always consult your GP or a healthcare professional for medical attention and advice. Therapists are not qualified general medical practitioners. Any views or opinions expressed on topics outside of their acknowledged training will be based on their life skills, knowledge and experience and should be treated purely as that. Therefore, they must not be acted upon before consulting your own GP or healthcare professional.
