What does it mean to be Covid Safe? What measures do GPT take to ensure best practices for hygiene? Read on to find out!
The pandemic has presented all of us with a number of challenges over the past year. For ourselves, we had a closure and subsequent rebuild to get through. Thankfully, much in part to our amazing community of patients, we were able to get back even stronger than before.
We have also included a number of new policies which help us to maintain a Covid Safe practice. We temperature check each staff member and patient on arrival, we record all visitors and we have increased our usual hygiene routine to include more frequent cleans. We use the highest quality cleaning products and our staff have been following the recent health orders and mandates. Our linens (including those inside the hyperbaric chamber) are changed between every patient and washed with special hygiene detergent in hot water. Your health is our top priority and we are happy to explain our Covid Safe Plan in more detail if you want to learn more. Just ask us!
Our team has grown to 5 incredible remedial massage therapists, covering Monday to Saturday with late nights on Wednesdays and Thursdays. We have pulled through the stresses together and found ways to support one another through regular catch-ups, clinical education and just having a laugh.
The importance of recognising this has been a hard time for everyone is that we are better able to support each other, coming from a common understanding of the uncertainty we are experiencing.
Remedial Massage can help with feelings of stress and anxiety but if you are needing further support please contact your local GP, or call lifeline on 13 11 14. Help is out there and you are not alone!
