After just over 3 weeks of a non COVID-enforced break (yay!), it's back to work from 18th January. Even with the surge in numbers of the omicron variant of COVID-19, it is still possible to practice, which is good news. However more than ever, sound and routine infection control protocols are very much still in place. See below for details.
If there is any change to ability to practice arrangements, you'll see it here straight away.
A Note On Vaccinations
Under Victoria's DHHS Directions on mandatory vaccination, I am required, as a health practitioner working in a clinic setting, to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to practice, and happy to be so. Under the same DHHS Directions, a client seeking remedial massage therapy treatment is not required to be vaccinated. However, in order to protect myself, my colleagues, my clients and the community in general, I expect a mutual obligation of my clients to be fully vaccinated to receive treatment.

As previously advised, DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU:
have ANY cold or flu-like symptoms or in any other way unwell
have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the previous 14 days to your scheduled appointment
have returned from overseas within 14 days of the time of booking and/or attending. (You’ll be quarantining in this period anyway.)
All clients must check in with the Service Victoria QR code provided at each clinic.
All clients will be screened with questions relating to the above at the time of booking and presenting to an appointment. This will be strictly adhered to and may result in treatment being declined on the day and re-scheduled to another time.
I’ll be notifying through here and on the Facebook page with any further updates. For timely updates and changes, go to (and importantly like & follow!) the Facebook page here.
Feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions.
Stay safe and go well everyone.
Cheers – Andrew
