OUR COMMITMENT TO CLEANLINESS & HOLISTIC CARE
We take standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously and have implemented additional steps throughout the property to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. Our health and safety measures are designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses, including COVID-19, and include everything from handwashing hygiene and cleaning product specifications to cleaning procedures.
Hand washing, appropriate hydration, adequate nutrition, exercise, and rest are the gold-standard to preventing infection. Our staff recognizes the interaction between our mind, nervous system and the immune system and the harm to our health that fear, worry and anxiety can cause. In addition to practicing social distancing and hygiene best-practices, we encourage you to practice coping mechanisms like mindfulness, calming breathing techniques, and hope that you take the time to be in safe, open-air, natural settings.
Many of our patients have asked what they can do to help protect against the coronavirus, flu, common cold and other infectious diseases. Please CLICK HERE to view our immune-boosting tips and anti-viral recommendations.
