COVID-19 Safety and Requirements
Your safety is our top priority. We have worked hard to provide a safe refuge for those that need or would like to take advantage of the many health benefits of acupuncture. We are continually monitoring state, federal and scientific data and guidelines to provide you with the safest treatment possible.
Below are the current measures that our clinic is taking to protect the safety of all our patients during the COVID-19 pandemic:
Our treatment rooms are outfitted with state of the art IQAir Healthcare Pro Plus air purifiers that filter 99.5% of air particles as small as 0.003 microns in size. This far exceeds the highest MERV 20 rating. Each treatment room is currently allowed 15 minutes between patients for air purification.
Additionally our HVAC system is fitted with a HEPA filter (MERV 13) and is continuously running at all times. Whenever possible, windows are also left open for additional outside air exchange.
All staff and practitioners are fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
Disinfection and Clinic Volume
Patient scheduling has been reduced to limit the number of patients in the clinic at any given time and increase time for air purification and disinfection between patients.
All surfaces in the treatment room and reception area are disinfected between each appointment.
As we have always done, clean sheets and table coverings are provided for each patient and then removed for cleaning after your treatment.
Masks are only required for patients that have had direct exposure to COVID19 or have experienced cold or flu symptoms in the past 10 days prior to their appointment.
Hand Washing / Sanitizing
We require that all visitors wash or sanitize their hands upon entering the office. There is a sanitation station at the entryway of our office.
Contactless Check-in and Check-out
We offer an electronic patient system that will allow you to setup contactless payment, fill out health history and consent forms online and schedule online.
As always, we offer Virtual Herbal Consults for patients who prefer to or need to stay at home. These telehealth consults are now done via our new electronic patient system and any resulting herbs or supplements will be shipped to you.
