Dear Patients,


We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. We are happy to announce that we are open after having closed our doors for 3 weeks. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety and health.


Many of you would benefit by receiving a treatment to calm your nervous system down. This sense of peace and relaxation can move you into a more healthy and harmonious way of being. At the same time, acupuncture can strengthen your immune system which is so important during this time. My gift to you is $10.00 off your next appointment. Just mention this email when scheduling. 


Proper sanitation has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our sanitation processes are made so that when you receive care it is both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.


Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our procedures are current and adhere to each agency’s recommendations. 


You will see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. 


Our precautionary and safety measures include:


  • Before treatment, we will take the temperature of all patients. If a fever or flu-type symptoms are present, we will be unable to treat you.


  • We are wearing protective face masks and thank you for wearing one as well. 


  • We require that all patients showing signs of illness (fever, cough, or shortness of breath), or with recent travel to China or Europe in the last 14 days, contact our office to reschedule their appointment. 


  • We have HEPA air cleaners throughout the facility. HEPA filters capture particles the size of the corona virus with 99.97% effectiveness.


  • We have hired extra staff to maintain rigorous sanitation procedures and to provide you with great care. 


  • We have eliminated the water cooler, tea station, and magazines as they are difficult to disinfect. 


  • We have increased the space between waiting room chairs for greater social distancing. 


  • We are diffusing essential oils that have been known to destroy viruses. 


  • Throughout the day we are continually disinfecting all hard surfaces, including door handles, countertops, workstations, bathrooms, pens, and chairs. All surfaces in the examination rooms are disinfected after each patient visit. 


We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding your specific health challenges and how we can help you. 


Don’t forget to ask for your $10.00 off. Please make an appointment prior to August 1 to take advantage of your discount.


Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends. 



Yours in health,
