Community Acupuncture at Gentle Healing Center in September
I'm excited to let you all know that I will be offering community acupuncture again starting September 8th at the Gentle Healing Center here in Helena! It's located at 513 Saddle Drive and I will have the treatment room set up in the yoga studio. I'll be there every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 8:00 am to 11:00 am. I know I've really missed being in the clinic and seeing you all and I can't wait to get started again.
There will be a few procedure changes in the new space - please let me know if you have any questions about them.
1) For the time being I will continue to see patients by appointment only. Please book your appointment online. You can always check the schedule online to see if there's any availability for a last minute treatment.
2) For now, I'm requiring payment at the time booking - It reduces the need to touch shared surfaces and will make checking folks in more efficient. I'm continuing to use the same sliding scale for payment - $25-$45 for new patients and $15-$35 for returning patients. If you need to make another arrangement for payment, please reach out to me directly.
3) There's no reception area in the new space so please enter the treatment room quietly and we can do a brief, quiet check in once you're settled in your chair. I'll be checking in with new patients over the phone before their treatment to limit the amount of talking in the treatment room.
As always, well fitting masks will continue to be required in the treatment space at all times. Please make sure the mask covers your mouth AND nose and that the mask does not have a valve or vent as they do not prevent the spread of COVID.
Also, please continue to refrain from coming in for treatment if you're feeling under the weather - specifically fever/chills, cough, shortness of breath, new loss of taste or smell or any other symptoms related to COVID. Chairs will continue to be spaced out at least 8-10 feet apart in the treatment room and I will only be treating 4 people an hour at most.
I will continue to have limited availability for private treatments for those of you who may not be comfortable in a shared treatment space at this time. The sliding scale for private treatments is $45-$65.
Thanks for reading & I look forward to seeing you soon!
