New beginnings are always exciting. We have all had the experience of a new love, or the birth of a new baby, or the day we brought home a new puppy! These occasions are always the cause of much joy and excitement! I am embarking on a new beginning, and do in fact have all the joy and excitement that should accompany it. Yet, at the same time there is the ever-present heaviness of navigating our way through these very troubling times. We are a nation gripped by pandemic, and much uncertainty.
First, the cause for Celebration! I am starting a Practice in Gulfport! Gulfport Florida, quite possibly the friendliest city in Florida! Have been given the very real honor of joining a Chiropractor’s Practice, Dr. Stuart Pollack, a fellow ‘everyone knows, and loves’. His former acupuncturist has moved out of state, at the very same time I realized I no longer wish to drive an hour each way to my former Practice in Clearwater. While my heart is heavy leaving the Amazing team I worked with there, I also know that it is time to be closer to home, (12.5 minutes to be exact :-).
Trust that my Treatment area is 100% compliant with the CDC guidelines. All patient areas are cleaned with soap and water then disinfected. Masks are required. The needles used for acupuncture are ALWAYS single use needles, so there is never a risk of contamination by them.
And please, bear in mind that perhaps the greatest gift of Acupuncture is it’s capacity to help build a strong immune system! And it’s ability to help calm anxiety! I can think of no other time in the sixteen years I’ve been practicing that this is more needed.
