*Temporary Closing/ Interim Virtual Treatments with At Home Acu-Kits*
With the recent news of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Outbreak and the need for social distancing as well as the emergency mandate declared by Governor Baker on 3/23/20 for shutting down all non-essential businesses for treating COVID19, the office will be physically closed until at least April 17, 2020.
During this time we will be available to existing clients via tele-medicine appointments. For information regarding this new venture please see previous emails sent out to all clients and/or our clinic blog posting HERE to get started.
If you are a NEW patient, we truly apologize for the inconvenience but tele-medicine laws do not allow us to virtually treat any clients besides existing clients located in MA at this time. Please email us to reschedule or check the Mind body booking app for later openings in May.
We will be closing our physical doors and cancelling all In-Person Appointments starting March 16th, 2020 through April 17th, 2020 to comply with the most current medical recommendations by the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO)- which is to practice “extensive social distancing”. That is to say the best advice at this time is to stay home, within your family unit, and to eliminate all non-essential physical contact with others. We will continue to closely monitor the CDC and WHO’s recommendations and will reassess the situation as more information comes to light.
With that said we understand this is a VERY difficult thing to do and we know you rely on your weekly or monthly appointments with us for pain management, immune boosting, stress management and many other different health issues.
The population most at risk for complications from COVID-19 are those that are over the age of 60, those that are immune-compromised as well as those with underlying lung conditions, heart disease and diabetes. MANY of our clients fall into these categories. This virus is extremely contagious and is transmissible even when people are asymptomatic. Therefore, sick policies asking people to stay at home when they are ill are dangerously ineffective.
In light of this new information, we can not take any risk in compromising the health and well being of all of our patients. Greater social distancing NOW, before more people get sick, will significantly improve our community’s chances of stopping the spread of the virus and overwhelming our hospital with more patients then they can give proper care to.
Please understand that we are still here for you, sending you and your families positive healing energy during these very trying times and we will continue to keep you updated via our website and social media as new information emerges and changes to status of the clinic continue.
We hope that you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy during this very stressful time and we look forward to seeing and treating you again in person when we are able to re-open our doors in the future.
