I believe COVID-19 will change the landscape of the complimentary therapy industry. We are navigating through uncharted waters.
Even as many feel that things are 'getting back to normal', we face new questions about our practice as therapists, and it is still too early to say what long-term changes may be required.
The call to social distancing is the most effective means at curtailing COVID-19 and ensuring our NHS does not become overwhelmed. Looking at what we must deal with right now and in the coming months, there are options available that can make our practices safer without being a heavy burden on therapists.
It's been wonderful to welcome students back into our therapy rooms and to get back to being able to offer hands-on treatments, and we are still very mindful of the differing impact COVID-19 has had on every individual.
We will continue to work with our industry regulators and courses accreditors to ensure our course material is updated and we will keep the latest guidance under review.
