Updated: Aug 19, 2020
AcuHerbs is opening for business again on Monday July 6th and we are really looking forward to caring for you once again. We hope you have been keeping safe and well throughout
these difficult times.
Louise is available from July 6th in clinic, but she is still able to do online herbal consultations via Zoom for new and returning patients. Kim returns to practice on the 14th July and Charlotte will be available on Saturdays throughout July. Unfortunately it won't be a 'normal' resume to practice, but we want to provide the opportunity for treatment to those who are in need. Facial Enhancement Acupuncture won't be available at this time until guidelines change, and massage techniques are limited.
Protocols as of 22nd June 2020 (these may change by July 6th)
Before your Appointment
We need to check whether it is safe to treat you, so we will need you to read and sign a Covid-19 consent form before your appointment/treatment can go ahead.
If it is not safe to treat you, an online consultation may be an alternative.
Going to the Clinic
Please travel light, leave bags and coats in your vehicle if possible. We will have a wipeable 'bucket' to keep all your belongings and clothes in. Please attend the clinic alone, unless you need a chaperone, parent or carer.
Try to arrive on time - we are trying to avoid using the reception area and will take you from the front door straight into the treatment room.
Please use card payments or BACS wherever possible.
During Your Treatment
Please use the hand sanitiser before and after your treatment.
Your practitioner will be wearing a mask and we would like our patients to do the same. You can bring your own or we have some available in the clinic for £1.
There will be limited soft furnishings (ie towels, pillows, blankets, heated blankets) but we will do our best to keep you as comfortable as possible. Those that are used will be changed after every patient.
Massage techniques will be limited, but other techniques like Gua Shi, Cups, Moxa, Electro, Heat lamps etc are all unaffected.
Toilets will only be available for emergencies only.
After Your Appointment
Appointment times have been extended by 15 minutes. This is to ensure a thorough clean of the clinic and allow us to fully air the treatment room between patients.
If you develop Covid-19 symptoms or have a confirmed diagnosis within 48 hours of having acupuncture, please immediately inform:
NHS test and trace service and
We hope you will understand that these protocols are for all our safety, and guidelines are constantly being updated. The changes to our working practices and the requirement for PPE has resulted in a small price increase -
New patients are now £65
Follow up acupuncture sessions are now £48.
If you wish to make an appointment you can book online at
www.weymouthacupuncture.co.uk or you can telephone the practice on
01305 759405 for bookings or any other information.
We Look forward to welcoming you back.
The AcuHerbs Team.
