Corona virus and virtual appointments

First, in this difficult and uncertain time, I wish you good health.  I hope that you are holding up mentally, emotionally, physically, and that you still have a connection to what makes you tick and puts a spring in your step. You might be experiencing this differently these days.

As an acupuncturist and herbalist, I have chosen to temporarily shut my physical practice. I know some acupuncturists are still practicing but I personally feel, along with many acupuncture organizations, that I can best help in the recovery phase of the pandemic.  Considering that as many as 80% of the people who get the virus are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms and that the virus’s incubation period is 2-14 days, I didn’t want my office to unwittingly become a location of its spread. It’s also fair to mention that most of my clients are in one or more of the high-risk categories.  


This is how I can help you from the comfort of our own homes!

I recently signed up with which is an online video appointment platform that enables doctors to meet with their patients in a secured, HIPAA compliant virtual platform. It’s easy for patients to connect via their smart device. You don’t have to sign up with, you simply sign into the virtual appointment by following the easy instructions emailed specifically to you.

Over an hour long video session, I can work one on one with individuals on an issue that is affecting them.  This technique is a gentle way to release stress and anxiety by tapping acupuncture points on your own face and upper body while making specific statements about the issue.  Issues can range from any negative emotions such as current anxiety of the virus/economy, physical nagging pain, sadness, worry, or anger over work or missed vacations. I guide individuals through the process every step of the way.  After the session the issue is less “charged” as the tapping on the acupuncture points stimulates them much like an acupuncture session stimulates points to release pain or discomfort.  

Unfortunately, no insurance that I am aware of covers this or any telemedicine provided by acupuncturists.  This may change with the advent of the corona virus and telemedicine being pushed to the forefront of healthcare.

Please call, text or email with any questions about the process as well as for pricing!
