Updated March 2021: Although the state of Texas is no longer mandating masks, they will continue to be required at all times at the Songbird clinic.
Songbird Acupuncture is following the guidance of the CDC and public health officials. I have been fully vaccinated, but will continue to take precautions to prevent viral spread from others in the clinic.
PLEASE READ the following information, which applies to all appointments:
MASKS ARE REQUIRED at all times in the office. If you don’t have one, I will provide one.
Songbird Acupuncture is not providing in-person care for ANY acute illness at this time. If you have fever, chills, body aches, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, nasal symptoms, loss of smell or taste, or digestive upset, please do not schedule an in-person appointment.
All patients will be screened prior to treatment. If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, have suspected symptoms, or have known exposure to someone who has tested positive, you will be asked to reschedule to 14 or more days in the future.
The waiting room is closed. Please do not come early to your appointment. If you do, you may wait in the parking lot until your scheduled time.
Treatment times have been adjusted so that there is only one person in the clinic at a time. You won’t come into contact with anyone but me during your appointment.
HEPA air filters with UV-C run in each treatment room. After a patient leaves, the treatment table and all contact surfaces are disinfected with hydrogen peroxide-based spray (approved for use against COVID-19).
Water, sheets, and blankets will not be available during treatments at this time, although the tables are heated and heat lamps are still available for your feet!
Online Health Consultations
If you would prefer to receive care without leaving your home, I now offer ONLINE HEALTH CONSULTATIONS to anyone who would like support in remaining healthy, minimizing stress, and addressing ongoing health needs.
One patient raves: “I’ve been surprised by the value of the online treatments. I come away with pressure points as well as a detailed treatment plan that includes herb and nutritional recommendations. I love having something on hand to reference.”
These sessions are conducted over the phone or secure video call and offer a range of options, depending on what is appropriate for you:
Personalized acupressure protocols for daily self-care
Herbal medicine and supplement consults
Aroma AcuPoint Therapy protocols using essential oils
Guided meditation or breathwork to alleviate stress and calm the nervous system
Nutrition and/or lifestyle advice
Facial guasha lessons (for cosmetic use or nasal allergies)
Guidance on the best ways to keep you and your family healthy during this time
A safe and calm space to air whatever feelings you may be experiencing
Think of an online health consultation as just like an office visit, minus the acupuncture. Curious? Your 15 minute discovery call is free and can be booked online.
