Procedures + Policies
May 31, 2020 update:
The health and safety of our community is our top priority. During this uncertain time, please use common sense when it comes to your personal decision about when to return to acupuncture treatment. While we are doing everything in our power to maintain a COVID-safe clinic, the only way to ensure that you won't be infected with COVID-19 is to self-quarantine.
These are the steps we are taking to comply with best practices for social distancing and sanitization to safely re-open. We will continue to update our policies and procedures, based on new information.
Rest assured, AcuBalance Wellness Center will remain a safe, cozy, and peaceful place for you to receive acupuncture and massage.
Measures we always take to keep the you and the clinic healthy:
We use universal precautions. This means that we treat everybody as if they are contagious with an infectious disease.
We change linens and disinfect all surfaces following every patient.
To reduce the density of people inside our office, patient appointments will be staggered and rooms rotated to minimize overlaps and allow extra time for proper room cleaning and disinfecting between patients.
We wear masks and practice exceptional self-care and awareness with regards to washing hands and staying home if we are not feeling well.
