Safe Practice - Covid 19

Sacred Dao Acupuncture Clinic is working in accordance to the safety protocols established by the Dutch Acupuncture Association (Nederlandse Vereniging voor Acupunctuur) and approved by the Dutch Government. Please see the essence of these measures below. 

COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES

 

  • If you have any symptoms of a cold or flu-like symptoms, please contact me so we can decide whether it is still safe to keep your appointment. This also applies in case one of your family members or house mates has these kinds of symptoms. 

  • Please try to be on time for your appointment, and although it is no longer mandatory to stay 1.5 metres from others, this remains a safe distance. So please be mindful while waiting and give others enough space if you are not alone in the waiting area.

  • Please note that wearing face masks is optional throughout the entire time you are at the clinic. If you would like me to wear a mask during the session, please ask me to do so.​

  • During the consultation I will also keep the safe distance of 1.5 meters as much as possible. The times that I will need to get closer to you will be during the pulse and abdominal palpation diagnoses, as well as when I put the needles in and then when I remove them. ​

  • I will wash or disinfect my hands and wrists before, throughout and after each treatment (e.g. before and after palpating you for diagnosis, before and after putting the needles in, etc.). These are things that I was already doing as they are part of the essential sanitary measures an acupuncture practitioner should take, nevertheless I will pay extra attention.​

  • Please sanitise your hands before the session: by washing them with soap for at least 20 seconds or by using the hand disinfectant when entering the treatment room.​

  • Please touch as little as possible in the clinic. Also avoid touching your face as much as possible. ​

  • Ideally take as few items as possible with you and keep them in your bag or jacket pocket; when possible it is best to leave your watch and jewellery at home.​

  • Please continue to follow the general hygiene guidelines regarding coughing and sneezing in your elbow, using paper tissues and discarding them after each use, etc.​

  • After each session contact surfaces in the treatment room, as well as door handles, doorbell, toilet area, etc. are cleaned. As always, for each session one-use-only couch roll will be used to cover the treatment bed and you will also be provided with one-use-only towels. The treatment room will also be aired in between each consultation.
