Hello again! First of all we need to begin with a most heartfelt THANK YOU to all who have generously donated to the clinic! Your support at this time has made it possible for us to stay in business and move forward with a re-opening plan! We cannot thank you enough!!
If you would still like to donate to the clinic we are accepting donations through our paypal account at firstname.lastname@example.org, through check, or over the phone.
We are still offering herb order pick-ups on Wednesdays! If you would like to order herbs, supplements, or cbd, please call the clinic at 828-254-4098 and leave a message, or email us at email@example.com. We are accepting payment over the phone, through paypal, or in person when you come pick up your herbs.
In other news.. We are still on track for re-opening June 1st! We have been hard at work getting the clinic ready. We have re-arranged many things around the clinic to create a safer environment for our patients and ourselves.
What to expect when we re-open
In order to minimize virus transmission we have had to make a few changes. One of the main things is that we will only have 5 chairs in the treatment room. These chairs are safely spaced 6 feet distance from each other. We will be changing sheets after each patient. We will have reduced hours and will only see about 3 patients per hour for a total of 15 patients per day. Our new hours will be: Sat 9-2, Sun 12-5, Mon,Tues,Thurs and Fri 10-3. We will be closed Wednesdays. Patients will only be allowed to stay about 40 minutes. All patients will be required to wear a mask, have their temperature taken, and sanitize their hands upon entering the clinic. Unfortunately we will no longer be offering tea or water. Please bring your own beverage.
We will not be treating anyone who has a fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, new diarrhea, new nausea, or loss of taste/smell. We also will not be able to see anyone who is immuno-compromised or going through chemotherapy treatment. We will still be offering herbs for pick up to those who cannot get acupuncture with us.
We will be treating people via appointment only and will not be accepting drop-ins. We will ask that folks do not linger in our waiting room but arrive at the time of their appointment (not early), and exit the clinic after their treatment is done. If you arrive early we ask that you please wait in your car till the time of your appointment. We will no longer provide eye pillows, sheets, or blankets for covering up but you may bring these items from home into the clinic if you need.
On our part, we also will be wearing masks. We will be sanitizing, disinfecting, doing extra laundry, mopping daily and wiping down all handles and surfaces frequently, We are also adding a professional air filter to the treatment room. We will have masks for sale for anyone who needs.
The circulation of Covid-19 has impacted the lives and businesses of billions of people around the world. We are striving to strike a balance between being able to continue to serve our community with affordablle health care while implementing health safety precautions. We anticipate our policies to change and adjust as new information comes in and as we move forward in time through the challenges of this pandemic. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding as we do our best to navigate this shifting landscape. We remain committed to serving our community through our affordable sliding scale and look forward to returning to our clinic with you all!
Our online booking for June and after is now up and running!! Please feel free to book your next appointment with us! We look forward to seeing everyone again real soon!
With love and care,
Aimee and Sam
