Acupuncture Clinic and the Coronovirus

 

Dear wonderful patients,

 

It is with the greatest regret that I have decided to temporarily close my acupuncture clinics as of Friday 20th March. 

 

As you are aware the Corona virus situation is changing daily and I feel that at this point I can no longer guarantee the safety of my patients or myself. I have also been given clear guidance by the British Acupuncture Council that keeping our acupuncture clinics open at this time is not advisable.

 

This has been a very difficult decision for me to make, especially as at the moment there is increased anxiety within our communities and a need for increased immunity; both of which acupuncture is able to help with.  

However, I plan to take this time to look after myself, my family and local community in any other ways  I can and make sure I am fit and healthy to welcome everyone back to my clinics once we're on the downward curve (its got to happen!) I feel like acupuncture will play a vital role in the recovery period.

 

I will get in touch when I start up again.

 

In the mean time the daffodils are out, the birds are singing. May the spring give us the hope and compassion for what lies ahead.

 

Warmest wishes for health and happiness,

 

Jess

 

 

 Here are some practical tips: 

 

  •        Remain hydrated
  • ·      Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables
  • ·      Boost your vitamin C levels – get some good quality one (Elderberry tincture/syrup) is another alternative
  • ·      Possibly increase your Zinc levels
  • ·      Increase vitamin D3 levels especially if working indoors most of the time
  • ·      Get plenty of fresh air and daily exercise. Here is a link to a Qi Gong sequence to strengthen the lung )
     
  • Have virtual meetups with friends and family, being connected is so important
  • ·      Listen to positive inspiring podcasts – I like Dr Ragan Chatterjee podcast on wellness and health. Dessert Island discs is another favourite. Dr Mercola also has a good one called 'take control of your health'
  • ·    Don’t listen to the news just before bedtime, control the amount of information you are receiving into your home.
 
 

 

I have a duty of care to you and to myself and care very much about creating a safe and caring clinic. I will continue to evaluate the risks and communicate with you.
