Hi everyone, I just wanted to give my own message about the hard times everyone is facing currently due to coronavirus. There is alot of fear and uncertainty right now and I am right there with you.
I want to assure you that the pause happening right now at Edgewater Acupuncture is temporary. We will be re-evaluating the situation on a daily basis and take things over the next 2 weeks as they come and re-open the clinic as soon as possible. In the meantime I will be hanging out with my kids, reading books, doing puzzles, going on hikes and doing my best to live in the moment. I will be thinking about you all every day because I love you guys so very much. I love that one of my 81 year old patients this week wanted to deliver food for others because she felt healthy and energetic and wanted to be of service. I love that a couple of you were down right mad that the clinic is closing because I know that means you all need us. And I need you too. Somehow I know in my heart we will get through this. Please be safe and take care of each other.
Over the next two weeks I will be putting out some videos about stress relieving activities you can do at home. My kids really want to show everyone how to properly wash their hands and my son is dying to teach more people about pokemon. I will also be offering free 10 minute phone consultations to anyone who needs to talk, vent or ask a question. Maybe we can just breathe together or commiserate. I’m here for you all even though I’m at home.
Acupuncture is my love and it gives me great joy that you trust me to treat you. I love watching people come in grumpy and leave smiling. I love watching people come in hunched over and leave standing straight up. I love it when a patient who used to rarely leave her home forgets an appointment because she was at bridge club. I want to thank all of you for giving me the privilege of serving you over the last 10 years and I look forward to continuing this work over the next decade.
