COVID 19

As an Allied Health Profession, Chinese Medicine Practices are being encouraged by the government to stay open. It is incumbent on us to help in keeping people well and out of the broader allopathic medical system where possible.

I want to assure patients that we are using hospital grade sanitising agents on our treatment tables and other hard surfaces.

In accordance with the latest advice, if you are not experiencing any cold or flu symptoms, are not in a high risk group and haven’t returned from overseas in the last 14 days, then visiting the clinic for treatment is still fine. I know you will all apply common sense, thank you.

In keeping with new strict guidelines I would ask that patients arrive ON TIME. I will be timing treatments so that we can maintain the necessary distancing between patients.

Patients will be asked to wash or sanitise their hands both before and after treatments.

In order to be able maintain the sterility of the treatment tables, towels will not be provided for the foreseeable future. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN TOWEL for the table.

Where possible, please pay by credit card and use pay wave. Thank you.

Should you develop symptoms and need to self isolate then Chinese Medicine, now as always, provides treatment for the symptoms of cold and flu as well as support in recovery.

If you are unable to visit the clinic a phone consult can be arranged and herbs collected for you.

Most importantly we all need to be taking good care, not only of ourselves but of those around us. Following the most up to date advice (see link above) and looking out for those in our close community who may need our assistance.

The health.gov.au site recommends

  • covering your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue
  • disposing of tissues properly
  • washing your hands often with soap and water, including before and after eating and after going to the toilet
  • using alcohol-based hand sanitisers
  • cleaning and disinfecting surfaces
  • if you are sick, avoiding contact with others and staying more than 1.5 metres away from people
  • cleaning and sanitising frequently used objects such as mobiles, keys and wallets

Stay well.
