UK Regional Rules Relating to CST
We are pleased to report that many of our members are practising CST, subject to the following current regional government restrictions and Covid-19 secure guidelines. It is at each practitioner’s discretion whom, when and whether they should treat.
On 5th April 2021 it was confirmed that England will move to step two of the Roadmap Out of Lockdown on Monday, 12th April. From that date there will be no restrictions on CST practitioners treating clients in accordance with Covid-secure guidelines.
On 1st April 2021 it was announced that close contact services will be allowed to reopen in Wales from Monday, 12th April. We have therefore advised craniosacral practitioners based in Wales that they may resume treating clients from that date in accordance with Covid-secure guidelines.
On 15th April 2021 it was announced that close contact services will be allowed to reopen in Northern Ireland from Friday, 23rd April. We have therefore advised craniosacral practitioners based in Northern Ireland that they may resume treating clients from that date in accordance with Covid-secure guidelines.
On 17th March 2021 a timetable for easing restrictions was announced with an indicative date of Monday, 26th April for mainland Scotland and certain island communities to enter a modified level 3. Until that time, practitioners must NOT practise CST.
Levels 0 and 1: Close contact services (i.e. ‘hands-on’ therapies where social distancing is not possible) are permitted, including mobile services.
Levels 2 and 3: Close contact services from a therapist’s premises are permitted, including a home treatment room. However mobile working (providing treatment to a client in their own home) is NOT permitted.
Level 4: All close contact services must stop.
