SANITARY CONDITIONS OF CLINIC AND CORONAVIRUS:


***IMPORTANT REGARDING SANITIZATION OF CLINIC AND COVID-19 PREVENTION MEASURES:


Please be advised that, at Acupuncture RI, we are taking every precaution and measure to keep our space free from the potential threat of this and all  viruses. 


We are taking multiple extra measures to add to the already vigorous practice of disinfecting ourselves, our clinic air and surfaces regularly.


We have added multiple layers of sanitation, including extra HEPA, UV, PCO  and other air sanitizing units throughout our clinic.   


We are also spacing our patients apart from each other to try to prevent any crossover of patients in the waiting room or the clinic.  We quickly escort our patients to a sanitized room immediately upon arrival to the clinic.


We also advise our patients to use the handicap ramp and entrance, to left of the main entrance, as it is easier to avoid touching surfaces to enter and exit the building.


If you have any symptoms or are not feeling well, YOU MUST reschedule your appointment!  If you have an appointment and are showing signs of illness, we will have  no choice but to reschedule your visit for a future time. 


We are taking this very seriously and we, also, will not come to work if any of us are not well.


We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we all go through this together!



HOW CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP YOU DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC??


Many of us are feeling the stress of the current restrictions in our society, as well as fear of getting sick.  This can create cortisol and other imbalances in our body, leading to anxiety, depression and insomnia.  This, in turn, can leave us vulnerable to numerous ailments and emotional issues.


In addition, many patients are complaining of increased pain during these times.  This can be caused by excessive stress, working from home in non-ergonomic situations, lack of exercise or simply a different routine in daily life.


Acupuncture can help to balance the hormones, reduce stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia.  It also helps treat pain and muscle tension anywhere in the body.  Acupuncture is also known to boost the immune system.


So, in so many ways, acupuncture can help us all get through the challenges that our society is facing at this time!
