UPDATES: COVID-19/Coronavirus Prevention & Safety

COVID-19/Coronavirus Prevention & Safety at Mind, Soul, and Self LLC

Updated on 7/27/2020:

UPDATES:

 

  • We are seeing clients and students face to face again as of June 5, 2020. BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Scheduling of face to face appointments will be at Christina’s discretion. To implement social distancing, until further notice, we are focusing on individual (one person) appointments and individual (one person) classes at this time. Christina is not offering any hands-on Reiki, Chakra Balancing, or bodywork sessions at this time. All scheduled face to face appointments and classes must be a minimum of 60 to 90 minutes long. We are not offering 30-minute face to face appointment at this time. At this time, individual Face to Face appointments/individual class will only be available on Wednesdays or Fridays.

 

  • Our FACE TO FACE GROUP offerings will be minimal at this time until the public health situation has improved. If we do offer a group class or event, we will cap attendance and remain under 6 people. Because of the size limitation, our larger group events, like The Goddess Gathering: Spiritual Awakening Support Group, will remain an online group until further notice.  Until further notice, all of our Reiki group classes will be offered both online and face to face. Face to face Reiki classes will have a maximum of 4 students. If you prefer an individual class or an online Reiki class, please contact Christina to schedule. We are constantly monitoring CDC, healthcare, and scientific guidelines and are staying informed of the infection/recovery rate in our county. We will review our policies and scheduled face to face offerings often and adjust our schedule and calendar of events as needed. Good resources to guide decision making are the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention COVID-19 info AND the John Hopkins COVID-19 TRACKER  

 

 

  • Our focus as a business will be on online classes, online groups, online services, and online events.  The positive side of COVID-19 is that our service area has dramatically expanded to include those that do not live geographically close to Wisconsin. Mind, Soul, and Self LLC & Christina Wilke-Burbach PhD will continue to have a strong online presence. Christina will continue from here on out to nurture and focus on the online portion of our business through COVID-19 and beyond. We service the entire USA, Canada, and beyond with our phone and online appointments, classes, & events. Online appointment times and days are flexible and will have scheduling priority over face to face appointments. 

 

 

Clients/students are asked to adhere to our COVID-19 Precaution and Safety policies below:

 

1). Christina is encouraging everyone to please continue to consider a phone/online/webcam/Zoom appointment in lieu of Face to Face:

  • The positive side of COVID-19 is that our service area has dramatically expanded to include those that do not live geographically close to Wisconsin. We service the entire USA, Canada, and beyond with our phone and online appointments & events.
  • Online/phone appointments will have scheduling priority and can usually get on the schedule within a few days of contacting Christina. 
  • Mind, Soul, and Self LLC & Christina Wilke-Burbach PhD will continue to have a strong online presence. Christina will continue from here on out to nurture and focus on the online portion of our business through COVID-19 and beyond.

  • We will continue to offer new online classes and events. With the number of people choosing to stay safer at home, we will continue to ramp up our online offerings.
  • EVERYTHING Christina offers face to face at her Sheboygan, WI office she also offers via telephone and online via webcam/Skype/Zoom. This includes classes, certifications, group events, consultation, intuitive readings, Tarot Readings, past life regressions, spiritual psychology, and healing appointments. Up until 2 years ago when she opened her Sheboygan office, Mind, Soul, and Self LLC was primarily an online business. Even though we have an office in Sheboygan, a large portion of our business is still online and via phone.

 

2). If you do visit our physical space at 1310 Wisconsin Ave (1st floor) in Sheboygan (only open by appointment), by making a face to face appointment or registering for a face to face class, you acknowledge that you are aware of the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus anytime you leave your house. Even though we have enhanced safety and health measures, you still assume all the risk. A risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease. By visiting Mind, Soul, and Self LLC’s physical location at 1310 Wisconsin Ave (1st floor) in Sheboygan, WI, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

3). If you do visit our physical space at 1310 Wisconsin Ave (1st floor) in Sheboygan (only open by appointment), appropriate health and safety measures have been put in place. By making a face to face appointment or by registering for a face to face class you agree to adhere to them. According to experts, social distancing and strict cleaning procedures, including frequent, thorough hand-washing and sanitizing surfaces, are necessary to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Christina is immunocompromised, so to protect both her health and your health, until further notice:

  • Clients, students, and customers will stay home if you feel under the weather, have any symptoms of infectious disease AND/OR if you have been exposed to anyone who is currently sick with any infectious disease such as the flu, a cold, respiratory illness, the coronavirus, etc; especially if you have flown on an airplane or been on a cruise (within 14 days). Please stay home. If you are sick, you absolutely need to reschedule your face to face appointment/group class/group event with as much notice as possible. Christina does not want to get sick, get her family members sick, nor have her other clients get sick. She also has elderly and immunocompromised clients. If you come in sick, you could put them at risk if their appointment is after yours or if they are in the same group or class with you. If you come in sick, Christina will send you home and you will be charged for the appointment/class with no refund. Christina will also reschedule/postpone classes, appointments, and events if she is under the weather and is symptomatic. She will notify clients as soon as possible if she is ill.

 

  • All face to face clients will be emailed our COVID-19 INFORMED CONSENT FORM to read, initial, and sign prior to your face to face appointment

 

  • You will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and exposure when you arrive to our office for your scheduled appointment. If you have symptoms and exposure, you will be sent home.
    • Fever > 100
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Dry Cough
    • Chills
    • Reseated shaking with chills
    • Muscle pain
    • Headache
    • Sore throat
    • New loss of taste and/or smell
    • Exposed to anyone who is currently sick with any infectious disease such as the flu, a cold, respiratory illness, the coronavirus, COVID-19, etc; within the last 14 days

    • Traveled domestically within the United States by commercial airline, bus, cruise, or train within the past 14 days
    • Traveled outside of the United States in the past 14 days

 

  • 6+ feet of social distancing will be implemented at all times. Furniture, tables, and chairs are spaced out. No handshakes or hugs or physical contact. Let’s greet each other with a Namaste.

 

  • Like always, all services, classes, and sessions must be paid in advance (online or over the phone) so we do not need to exchange money face to face.

 

  • All perfume, essential oil, and aromatherapy testers will be removed from our product shelves. Please do not touch any products unless you intend to purchase

 

  • No face to face/hands-on bodywork, Reiki, or energy work appointments will be offered or scheduled until further notice. Christina’s focus will be on intuitive readings, chakra readings, tarot readings, past life regressions, spiritual counseling, spiritual psychology, mind/body medicine, meditation, hypnosis, consultation/coaching, herbal consultation, natural health consultation, and teaching classes. Services in which social distancing can be followed.

 

  • No sharing or passing around of oracle cards/tarot cards. We will absolutely still do intuitive readings, but Christina will handle the cards.

 

  • We will have hand sanitizer and tissues in the office. But please bring your own hand sanitizer and tissues to use to ensure there is enough

 

  • We will clean the air in the office throughout the day with microbial air disinfectant spray. We will be diffusing antibacterial and antiviral essential oils into the air in the office and will have the windows open for fresh air and circulation as much as possible (depending on the weather). (Please note, these are not protection or a cure in the event of exposure).

 

  • The coffee pot, tea maker, and coffee cups in our office will not be available for your use until further notice. Please bring all of your own beverages along to drink.

 

  • Extra cleaning and sanitizing at our office space. Our regular cleaning schedule has been ramped up. We’re now sanitizing rooms and surfaces multiple times a day and after each client….door handles, light switches, the bathroom, tables, and all chairs/couches/futons that people sit on. The primary reason we have leather furniture in the office is so we can sanitize it more effectively than cloth or fabric furniture. We always have sanitized the furniture everyday. Now we will sanitize throughout the day between each client.

 

4). If you do visit our physical space at 1310 Wisconsin Ave (1st floor) in Sheboygan (only open by appointment), Mind, Soul, and Self LLC encourages our clients and customers to please follow these best practices:

    • Wear a mask or face covering 
    • Stay 6+ feet away from each other
    • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use a paper towel to open the bathroom doorknob and then through paper towel away in the garbage
    • Use an alcohol-based sanitizer
    • Avoid touching your face, mouth, nose, eyes, etc.
    • Keep away from others that are sick
    • Cover your mouth/nose if you have to cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw it away in garbage and immediately wash your hands
    • Please do not wear gloves. There is too much of a risk of cross-contamination with gloves. Please instead wash hands frequently and use hand sanitizer

5). If at any point I reschedule or postpone face to face programming or events, I will communicate that information through all means available, including email, our website, and social media. Instead of flat out canceling, I will most likely move my group classes and events online via Zoom or Skype. If either I cancel/postpone/reschedule or you cancel/reschedule due to sickness, your payments and registrations will then transfer to the online class/event/appointment or rescheduled face to face event or face to face appointment. So please be mindful that this is a possibility when registering for upcoming events and appointments.

 

6). I’d like to take this opportunity again to remind everyone that EVERYTHING I offer face to face at my Sheboygan, WI office I also offer via telephone and online via webcam/Skype/Zoom. This includes classes, certifications, group events, consultation, intuitive readings, past life regressions, and healing appointments. Up until 2 years ago when I opened my Sheboygan office, I was primarily an online business. Even though I have an office in Sheboygan, the majority of my business is still online and via phone. Zoom is amazing! It is seriously like being in the same room as the other person. Online appointments and classes have the added perks of you being in the comfort of your own home! You do not need to drive or find parking. You do not need to be technology savvy. If you can turn on a computer and check your email, you can take an online class or do an online appointment. Its super simple…no advanced skills are needed. Click here to learn more about our online classes

Want some additional tips to keep yourself healthy and well? (Please note, these are not protection or a cure in the event of exposure).

  • Check out immunomodulant mushrooms like Chaga, Reishi, Turkey Tail, and Lion’s Mane AND herbal adaptogens like astralagus, ginseng, tulsi, and schisandra berry to boost immune activity every day
  • Temporary use (10 days or less) of immune stimulants like Echinacea (Echinacea spp.) Garlic (Allium sativum), and Elderberry (Sambucus nigra, S. canadensis, or S. cerulea) can also be helpful
  • Ginger (Zingiber officinale), Boneset (Eupatorium perfoliatum), Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) may also ease symptoms
  • Rest, reduce stress, seek medical are when appropriate and necessary
