Online AcuTherapy

We have options! I’m excited to provide 30-minute Online AcuTherapy Appointments. This is a great option for us to continue your care while doing our part to maintain physical distance. I’ll mail you an AcuTherapy kit, teach you how to apply AcuSeeds to points, and discuss refills or modifications to your herbal prescription.

You may book Online AcuTherapy appointments through your online account, phone call, text, or email. These appointments are HIPAA compliant and will not be recorded. Please note that currently these appointments are best experienced via computer or laptop. We are working on options that will be mobile device friendly.

Both the Benicia and Emeryville/Oakland clinics will remain open for appointments on a limited (as needed) basis. If you are coming in for an appointment, I will contact you before the appointment to make sure you do not have a temperature, symptoms, or exposures. I will also take your temperature when you arrive and provide hand sanitizer to wash your hands.

As always, we are following all safety protocols such as cleaning (hand washing, linens, etc.), disinfecting (chairs, doorknobs, surfaces, tables, etc.), sterilization (metal guide tubes, needle trays) and disposal (sharps containers, etc.) procedures and will always follow these best practices.

If you are sick or experiencing any cold or flu like symptoms, please remain at home. If you are experiencing shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or severe symptoms please call your doctor. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911.

COVID-19

March 17, 2020: There is so much uncertainty about the global pandemic of COVID-19. I am here to support YOU. And just like your acupuncture treatments, your decisions may be customized to prioritize your personal, family, and community health and safety.

The good news is, you have the choice to come to acupuncture and continue your treatments, uninterrupted. Visiting an acupuncture clinic qualifies as an essential activity, according to the order that went into effect at midnight on March 17 throughout most of the Bay Area.

Both the Benicia and Emeryville/Oakland clinics will remain open this week. As always, please check the door sign to make sure we only have one person in the clinic at a time. I have been following all safety protocols such as cleaning (hand washing, linens, etc.), disinfecting (chairs, doorknobs, surfaces, tables, etc.), sterilization (metal guide tubes, needle trays) and disposal (sharps containers, etc.) procedures and will continue to do so.

If you decide the best option is to stay home, I support your decision! Given this current situation, I will be waiving the 24hour cancellation policy. Please call, text, or email me if you have any questions.

If you are experiencing any cold or flu like symptoms, please remain at home. If you are experiencing shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or severe symptoms please call your doctor or seek medical assistance.
