Although the NSW Government is now allowing remedial massage to occur with some caveats in place, this is not just a return to “business as usual” for massage therapists even though it may seem like it.
Some of the caveats around remedial massage relate to rigorous screening to determine the medical necessity for treatment, the clinical context in which treatment takes place and the need to follow specific practice guidelines.
Australia’s public health response to COVID19 has been incredibly successful. With new infections daily now in the single digits, it is completely understandable that people might start to think that going back to regular remedial massage is an appealing proposition. I would love to have a treatment myself!
Safety remains my number one concern for all of my clients, some of whom are from vulnerable and at-risk populations. Since my profession involves being in close proximity and sharing the air for an extended time in a small room, a virus like COVID19 can be spread very quickly despite the best infection control and hygiene precautions.
My association, AMT, has just convened a biosecurity planning committee to create a return-to-practice roadmap for massage therapists. They are advising me to hold off practising until they have released a biosecurity plan.
For the reasons stated above, I have decided to delay reopening my practice a little longer. I will keep you updated on developments as they arise.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
