Feet First Reflexology Goes Paperless

digital-transformation-reflexology

Paper is Passé – Digital Does Away With It All Together

Thanks to Apple’s Magic Pencil and New Generation iPad, from today I’m moving to digital record-keeping. This is the final step on my journey to going paperless!

Did You Know?

  • For each new client consultation, I complete a client consultation form and a GDPR form
  • For every treatment, I complete a treatment record
  • By law, these forms must be held securely for up to 8 years

That’s a lot of paperwork to create, file and store in a locked filing system!

So I’m delighted that technology has advanced to the point that I can now replace my paper forms with digital alternatives.

Even better, I can complete them during treatments by simply writing directly on my new iPad with Apple’s Magic Pencil.

The benefits are:

  • Respect for the environment
  • Improved data security
  • Easier data retrieval

So, what happens next?

Paperless Records for New Clients

On your first visit I will create a new file for you. Into this file I will save your client consultation form, GDPR consent form and the record of your first treatment. For each subsequent treatment, I will add a new record and save it to your personal file.

All data will be collected on my password protected iPad and backed up on Feet First Reflexology’s encrypted One Drive Account.

Rest assured that digital record keeping is totally secure and fully GDPR compliant.

What’s more, your data belongs to you, and you can request copies of your records at any time.

For more information, please see the Feet First Reflexology Privacy Policy.

Paperless Records for Existing Clients

From Monday 13th September, I will make digital records of new treatments.

I will not transfer previous paper records to a digital format but will keep them in accordance with GDPR as set out in the Feet First Reflexology Privacy Policy.

As you know, your data belongs to you.

Naturally, you can request copies of your paper and digital records at any time.

Summary

I work hard to make your visit to Feet First Reflexology, stress-free.

Now that all aspects of your experience from booking to session records to payment are digital, you can focus on one thing only: enjoying your treatment.

Feet First Reflexology: your sanctuary to relax, rebalance and restore.

Covid-19 Safety Update

feet-first-reflexology-bluntisham-Covid19-update-19-july-2021

As you are aware, on 19th July 2021 we enter Step 4 of the Government’s plan for easing coronavirus restrictions in England. You may be wondering how this will affect your treatments at Feet First Reflexology. Hence, this Covid-19 safety update.

Although mandatory mask wearing and social distancing officially end on 19th July, the Government “expects and recommends” that face coverings still be worn in close contact facilities. Feet First Reflexology is such a facility.

The Assosication of Reflexologists also advise that both clients and therapists continue to wear a face covering, unless they are exempt, during the entire appointment.

Therefore, as a responsible therapist, I will continue to adhere to Covid-19 secure guidelines for your safety and that of all clients that visit Feet First Reflexology.

As a brief reminder, these are measures that I take to minimise risk whilst ensuring that you benefit from your treatment:

1. 24 hours before your treatment you receive an email and text reminder of your appointment time with questions that you must respond to before visiting the following day.

2. You arrive wearing a face covering, unless exempt, and keep this face covering on for the duration of your appointment unless this causes you distress.

3. You place your belongings in the sanitised box provided and sanitise your hands.

4. Before treatment commences, I ask you to confirm you have no covid symptoms, have not tested positive or been in contact with someone who has tested positive within the last 48 hours or been told to self-isolate.

5. I use fresh sheets, towels, pillows, and blankets for each client and remove them at the end of the session and wash them immediately at 60 degrees.

6. I sanitise surfaces, door handles, and the plastic box for your belongings.

7. I provide you with a sealed bottle of chilled water for you to drink when you leave.

8. The reflexology room is ventilated 24 hours a day with a maximum of three clients in any working day.

9. If you need to use the toilet, this is in a separate area and is sanitised after each use for your protection.

10. In the days following your treatment, if you begin to feel unwell and suspect that you may have coronavirus, please stay at home, self-isolate, get a Covid-19 test, and inform me so that I can take the appropriate steps to protect other clients.

Please see full details on Covid-19 guidelines or contact me at anytime should you have any further questions or concerns.

You can also refer to the Government’s guidance for close contact services.

DIY Reflexology for better health

hand-reflexology-map

Are you missing your reflexology sessions?

Did you know that you can do reflexology on your own hands as well as your feet?

Reflexology works on the principle that all organs, glands and parts of the body have a nerve or a blood supply that runs through various parts of the feet. It is also true that the hands have the same reflex points.

The Assosiation of Reflexologist have put together this a DIY Reflexology self-help guide to show you how you can alleviate your stress and anxiety levels. It also suggests some useful stress busting tips. My favourite is the three things to be grateful for each day. I do this every evening before going to sleep.

Feet First Reflexoloy will be back offering full treatments as soon as possible but in the meantime try these DIY reflexology techniques and tips on yourself.

Feel free to share this page with family and friends as this is a very stressful and anxious time in most of our lives.

Temporary Closure

temporary-closure-feet-first-reflexology

On Saturday 31st October 2020, the UK Government announced the placing of England into a 4-week lockdown from Thursday 5th November 2020 until Wednesday 2nd December in order to control the spread of COVID-19.

Feet First Reflexology has been operating as a COVID secure environment since re-opening on 13th July 2020.

However, guidance on new national restrictions makes clear that businesses offering personal care facilities such as reflexology must close temporarily from 5th November until 2nd December 2020.

Sadly, this means that all appointments for this period are cancelled.

To reschedule your November appointment for December 3rd onwards, please make a new booking online.

Provided that the temporary lockdown is not extended, Feet First Reflexology will resume treatments on Thursday 3rd December.

If you have an appointment for December 3rd onwards, you need take no action at this stage.

As you know, your safety and well-being are my highest priority and Feet First Reflexology will continue to be a COVID safe environment.

I am looking forward to resuming treatments on Wednesday 3rd December.

In the meantime:

Stay safe. Stay well.
