14/3/2020 What are we doing at Zen Hands wrt COVID-19

Existing clients are well aware of me washing my hands before and after each treatment and using fresh linnen each and every time. Now each wash has virus killing Tea Tree essential oils added to it. As of start of Feb that has been changed to have sanitising concentrate added per each wash.

On the personal cleanliness front had been upped since the end of January as is typical of the Cold and Flu season. Washing of hands which now use Tea Tree oil in the soap pump.

Due to the virulent nature of the SARS-2 virus and it's lack of up front symptoms Zen Hands is separating each client with a three day break to ensure that all surfaces cannot sustain a live virus should the sanitising spray and cleaning not be sufficient. Each client is vetted for not having placed them selves at risk by going to a large gathering be it cinema, concert, overseas, being on a flight or having had contact with such a person in the last 14 days.

At this point I am ceasing treating any people with sneezing, sore throat, temperature and breathing difficulties as these can easily be related to a SARS-2 virus infection resulting in a COVID-19 illness.


I believe that these steps place me and prospective clients into a safe place to attend to health concerns such as strengthening their immune system.


If you suspect you are infected with SARS-2 contact the Health Direct helpline on 1800 022 222 remember you may not have any symptoms for up to 14 days and still carry the virus and still be highly infectious!

More information: Coronavirus Health Information Line on 1800 020 080.


and other media reporting.


Lastly if I may. Since April 2019, Australian government has discontinued the claimability of Natural Therapies (your health insurance should have written to you about this by now).

This is hugely unfair as you pay for your private health insurance extras precisely to be able to claim your massage, shiatsu, naturopathy and other therapies.

You CAN do something about this as 150,000+ people have by adding your name to this petition and this petition. Please do.


Warmest wishes
