Welcome to Alma Vale Centre.

We operate the following precautions to continue to maintain hygiene standards, reduce potential viral transmission and keep all of us safe and well.


Risk Assessment

I have conducted an extensive formal risk assessment, as guided by the British Acupuncture Council.


Prior to your appointment 

You will be sent a Covid-free form before your appointment.  This form needs to be filled in and sent back the day before your treatment.

Current information on Covid manifests as:

  • Headache
  • Blocked or runny nose
  • Sore throat
  • Fatigue
  • Feeling sick
  • Upset stomach
  • Loss of sense of smell or taste.

Please cancel your appointment if you have any of these symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has any of the above symptoms. There will be no charge for these cancellations.

This can be very easily confused with a common cold.

If you have any of these symptoms, please do not come in, unless you have a negative lateral flow or PCR test. Otherwise please contact us to cancel your appointment.


Your Health Needs

It may be deemed best that you do not come in until your health or the COVID guidelines change. Do contact your practitioner with any queries.

Video consultations are available from some practitioners:

  • Acupuncture clients may be offered an initial video consultation
  • Chinese herbal medicine can be prescribed by video call.


Face to Face Treatments

Facemasks are worn in all communal areas of the clinic, and in the clinic rooms at the discretion of practitioners and their clients.

Please wear your own face mask on entering the clinic. Your practitioner will have a small number of masks for sale should you forget yours.

Touch-free hand sanitizer is to be used immediately on entering Alma Vale Centre. Practitioners will sanitise their hands and thoroughly wash their hands between clients.

The couch and touchpoints are cleaned and sanitised. Our rooms have anti-viral air filters or anti-viral essential oils in vaporisers, reducing viral load.

Please will you:

  • Arrive on time
  • Bring your own clean towel or covering to place over you if you think you may be cold.



Online or card payment only.


Many thanks for your cooperation with this.
