Office COVID-19 Safety Precautions
My office is following the guidelines outlined by the San Francisco Department of Public Health as well as the standards outlined by the National Acupuncture Council (CCAOM) based on the CDC recommendations. I continue to stay up to date with the latest safety measures.
Some of the safety measures I have implemented include:
- Everyone in the office wears a mask- patients and practitioners wear a mask at all times.
- I have decreased the number of patients treated each day in order to schedule extra time between appointments. This allows the room to be aired out. The windows are opened and a HEPA filter is continuously on. The room is sanitized after every treatment. This extra time creates a staggering in my schedule to prevent patients from crossing paths.
- The office is cleaned with an EPA-registered solution. The treatment room has been modified to allow for all surfaces to be cleaned- the massage table, chairs, and touched surfaces are all sanitized between patients. The massage table is then covered with disposable coverings that are discarded after use.
- I decrease face-to-face time by checking in with patients by email, scheduling phone and virtual sessions, and having patients pay for treatments using an online payment system.
- Everyone is screened using the San Francisco Department of Public Health survey. I ask everyone to take their temperature before the appointment. I screen myself daily and I take extra precaution to stay safe in my personal life.
Please call or email my office for current service fees.

Email support is offered to all current clients Monday through Friday (response within 24 hours of your email). I respond to your questions regarding your treatment plan and recommendations so you never have to wait until your next appointment to have your questions answered. I offer this because it is important to me that you understand your treatment and feel completely supported while we work together.
Patients are asked to make any schedule changes or cancellations prior to 24 hours of their scheduled time. Patients will be charged $100 for cancellations made within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment. Insurance does not cover missed appointments, so insurance patients will need to pay out-of-pocket for this fee.
