Prepare the treatmentwork areas (1)
One o your main duties in the salon will be to assist more senior therapists bysetting up the correct materials and equipment needed or a particular treatment orservice and by preparing the client.You will need to know what products, tools and equipment are needed or each o the treatments in the range, and also be able to use a client’s
record card
to selectmaterials that will be suitable or that particular client. You will also need to think very careully about everything that you have learned about health and saety inUnit G20. Make sure your own actions reduce risks to health and saety and put itinto practice.
Record cards
A client’s
record card
is a proessional record o treatments or services that theclient has already had at your salon and is where a therapist can record commentsor suggestions or uture treatments. Part o your preparation or a treatment willinvolve obtaining a client’s record card rom reception. You will need the card to ndout what treatment the client is booked in or, so that you know what you need toset up. The client’s record card may also give you more inormation about the client’slikes and dislikes, skin type, previous products used and the therapist’s methods thatwill be helpul to you in deciding which products to select.When you collect a record or a client rom reception, make sure that you check theclient’s rst name, surname and address careully to make sure you have the correctcard. Make sure that you collect the correct record or the client, as some may share asurname or even a rst name.You will need to hand over the client’s record card to the therapist beore she startsthe treatment.
Salon life
Jodie was looking or Mrs Jarvis’s record card or the therapist, Shruti, butcouldn’t nd it anywhere in the ling box. Ater ve minutes she began to panic– Shruti was really strict about not starting a treatment until everything wasready, and Jodie knew that she would get into trouble i the treatment startedlate. Eventually the receptionist looked up rom her magazine and asked Jodiewhat the problem was, and when Jodie explained, the receptionist told herto look under Mrs Jarvis’s rst name, Jan, because that’s where she led it lastweek. Luckily enough, there it was.How could this problem be prevented rom happening in the uture?What is the best system to use when ling record cards?
