Guidelines for working face to face – Nutritional Therapy – Craniosacral Therapy +

The workplace room and home will have the following in place, till this is required by the Government and Nutritional Association CNCH association and CSTA guide lines.

Our world as we knew it has changed and for at least the next year or so till there is a better solution for the pandemic virus of 2020, the following guidelines will be in place. This will include working with adults, children and babies, guidelines. As with any other bacteria and viruses, there is no guarantee that we would not catch it, the liability waiver/disclaimer will need to be signed for the first time back and new client for face to face.

In order for me to do the job that I love and carry on the job that I love, which is helping people to heal and get better, I would respect and understand the rules and guideline. Read the following through well.

As we all going to live a more sociable life soon and travelling via plane, that includes myself, I would also encourage people to follow the Government guidelines for that. As it will be impossible for me to do a 15 days isolation, every time someone has got a scare, and make a living only with the face to face sessions, I would recommend to think of my other ways of working, which are still very effective and valid to improve your health; the new tools of NLP will be even more empowering for your own self-healing.

Face to face sessions will be done only for 3 days a week. Two week day and Saturdays, same times 9.30am to the last appointment at 5pm. A max of 4 people will be seen during one day with a two days separation as to give me the time to wash and dry everything that I use during the consultations at the end of the day. The other two days will be dedicated to online consultations and distance healing.

In order to be flexible with the days of working face to face, the first person to book the appointment for a particular day, will lead that week days of working.

I strongly encourage people to consider distance healing, (under the Certified Angel Guide), especially if they are worried about catching the virus, or live with the High-risk people group or themselves are in the high-risk group. The treatment, will have the same benefit and outcome of the face to face craniosacral therapy.

Spiritual healing and craniosacral therapy for me has been hand in hand since the beginning of my training in 2010/11. Hence with my knowledge and awareness that I have accumulated so far, this will be my new way forward in the long run. Please read on my website for more information about distance healing.

Nutritional therapy by itself can be easily done on line and either via Skype, which is under my email esposito_m@yahoo.co.uk or what’s up video call. Follow ups for nutritional advice can be done for 30 minutes via call, skype or what’s up.

NAET and nutritional therapy will be done half and half. 40 minutes phone call, for the extra information that I need after the health check form and food diary has been emailed and signed or everything could be filled via phone call if not possible to email me the information. This is part of the actual consultation and treatment. The rest of the consultation face to face, testing and treatment will be done in 45 minutes at a booked day and time after the guidelines have been read and a liability waiver/disclaimer has been signed. This will be kept on each person file and be valid for any subsequent visits face to face.

NLP teaching tools for various can be done either online, via skype, what’s up or phone call. Read on my website for the benefit of the work with NLP. This will be combined with my knowledge and experience as a complementary therapist for the past 30 years. 

Here are the guidelines for face to face work and home visits:

From my part:

  • Door handles, doorbells, switches, gate entrance handle, toilets button and toilets, as well as the sink tap will be cleaned before, and after each client. The couch rolls will be on the couch as usual, there will be no couch cover. The couch will be disinfected before and after each client. Any chair will have the couch rolls on them when used by clients, and will be disinfected before each client and between clients.
  • Toilets facilities will have a hands-free soap dispenser and paper-towel/tissue to wipe hands.
  • The premises will be cleaned before and in between clients. The sitting couch and chairs will have couch paper or a cover that can be wiped and disinfected before and after each client, a couch cover will also be placed underneath the plastic cover, that will be washed at the end of each day. All the washing will be done according to the suggested guidelines, at 60 + degree and separated from my own washing.  
  • I will change my clothes between each client, and wash my hands and harms and hand sanitize them.
  • Blankets and pillow cases, will be changed for each client. You can also bring your own blanket if possible.
  • Toys for children will be washed and then put in the dish washer, or disinfectant between each child. Only toys that are washable will be shared. If possible, please bring your own child’ toy to play, and books to read for them, as books will not be shared for the time being.
  • The room will be ventilated for 20 minutes, through opening the windows, between client. I will use also a homemade spray with tea tree oil, lemon, lavender and peppermint oil; if you are allergic to any of them let me know before the appointment.
  • Appointment timing will be spread to an hour apart, so that will give enough time to clean the premises. For this reason, I am asking the clients to be on time for their appointments as much as they can, and we will finish withing the 45 minutes or an hour, according to the appointment booked.
  • I will wear a mask, and cotton gloves during the treatments till this is required by law, and one pair of cotton gloves per client or household.
  • The disclaimer for new follow ups sessions from July 2020 and 1st time treatments needs to be signed and emailed before the appointment. If you do not have a printer, I can print the page for you. You need to bring your own pen to sign the document.
  • As required by the new rules, please bring your own water and pen to write anything relevant.
  • Clients need to check 24 hours in advance of any appointment, if they or anyone in their household is experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.

  • I will bring my own water and pens.
  • Any health-check form and disclaimer/waiver need to be signed before the face to face appointment, if you do not have a printer, use your own pen to sign the waiver.
