COUNSELLING has resumed as normal. Clients will be asked to use our hand sanitizer on arrival, consent to a non-contact temperature check, and declare that they feel fit and healthy when they attend each appointment. Unfortunately, I am not able to shake your hand. .
MASSAGE is continuing as normal until our sector is specifically instructed by the government not to. But there are some extra measures in place. Firstly, on arrival, we'll take your temperature with a non-contact forehead thermometer. If you register 37.5 degrees C or over then we can't proceed any further. Then we'll ask you to use our hand sanitizer. Next there'll be a Covid-19 questionnaire as well as all the other usual paperwork. The questions will be about any symptoms you or anyone in your household may have and whether you've been abroad recently. Any bags must be left in your car. Only essentials like your phone, wallet and spectacles can be brought into the massage room.
We would be grateful if you would not visit us within 14 days of returning from any holiday abroad. This is regardless of any easing of government restrictions. And we need your ethical agreement that you’ll contact us if you develop any symptoms of coronavirus or receive a positive diagnosis within five days of visiting us, so we can decide whether any of our other clients who visited after you need informing. Obviously, your personal details will not be disclosed to other clients, only the fact that they may be at increased risk.
If we suspect a client is being evasive or intends to give false details then we'll have no hesitation in refusing to go ahead with the booking/massage. Good client relationships begin with simple honesty about your name and circumstances. Clients who are not honest about the most basic things are the ones who are likely to be troublesome or dishonest in other ways too. This is NOT the time to be acting in the shadows or providing false information.
AVAILABILITY as at 9am 19/10/2020. These times are correct at the time of this update but are subject to change as and when bookings/cancellations occur. PLEASE NOTE, we have made a decision to make Tuesdays and Sundays as our weekly days off. Fears of coronavirus, local travel restrictions in Wales, shielding, increased testing, self-isolating and quarantine have all contributed to a fall in bookings recently, so for the time being we wont be updating with specific availability as availability has increased. However, this does not mean we are more likely to take last minute bookings, so dont rely on that. The bookings nearly always come in and you might be too late, and if they dont then 9 times out of 10 we'll have already made our own personal plans for the time you are hoping to visit us. Think and book ahead! NO-SHOWS. We have had another spate of no-shows recently, and we find it entirely unacceptable that people book in but don't show up and dont even send any sort of text to let us know. If it continues we'll introduce deposits or full payment upfront. Its not a route we want to go down, but when we tell an enquirer that they cant book because that time is already taken, then its infuriating when the original booking doesnt show up. PRICES. Please be aware that we have a new price list with effect from 1st September. Our new prices reflect "going rates" and increasing costs associated with providing a better and safer experience for the client, and with the energy costs associated with having constant laundry!
WITHELD PHONE NUMBERS. Due to the time-wasting and immature nature of most of the calls we receive from witheld numbers, we will no longer be answering them! So if you are a genuine enquirer but your call displays at our end as"witheld number" or "unknown number" then it will not be answered. Some clients who call from work phones may be unaware that their call is displaying "unknown number" at our end so it's worth being aware of this. We have no interest whatsoever in dealing with clients who are totally secretive and act out in the shadows. And we are not a chat line for your entertainment as you play with yourself. We seek to establish open, honest and meaningful connections with our clients and we tend to find nothing but time wasted and trouble from the type of client who witholds their number.
