COVID-19 Policies and Procedures

While acupuncture is not a treatment for COVID-19, our office can address the mental stress and the toll that this pandemic has taken on all of us as we adapt to our new normal.

The following policies and procedures have been adopted so that our office remains a safe place to receive essential acupuncture treatments.

For the safety of our patients, our Safety Plan has now been implemented: UCA COVID-19 Safety Plan
 
To comply with state requirements, and based upon currently known prevention strategies:

*All treatments will be by appointment only. If you are not feeling well, or suspect you have had contact with COVID-19, please call for a phone screening prior to entering the office.

*All patients must wear a mask covering both mouth and nose before entering the office, and during your treatments. 

*Please arrive on time (5-10 minutes before your appointment) as this will help to maintain social distancing within the clinic.

*Please do not bring guests. If you require assistance entering or leaving the office, those assisting you must also wear a face mask and will be asked to wait outside the office until your treatment has completed. 

*All patients will be requested to wash their hands thoroughly before their treatment.

*All patients will be screened to ensure that it is safe for both themselves and for other patients for them to receive acupuncture treatment. This screening will include a contactless reading of your body temperature.

*You may pay prior to treatment to assist with social distancing during patient turnover. If you are paying by check please pre-write your check if possible before you arrive. If you are paying with cash please bring proper change. Credit card payments will be contactless.

*Please bring your own pillow, blanket or sheet if desired.
