We are a Winnipeg clinic offering acupuncture, Chinese medicine and massage therapy. We are passionate about acupuncture and believe that it must be affordable to be accessible. To that end, we have embraced the community acupuncture model to bring you the lowest priced acupuncture we can. We look to make the people of our community healthier and therby make a healthier community.

 

CLINIC NEWS

 

And now it is time for Acupuncture

Paul will be back in the office on Tuesday, August 4th. His schedule is extended so it should make it easier to get in for acupuncture. He will be in Monday through Saturday, his schedule can be accessed online on Thursday, July 30th. 

Our clinic is embracing a new normal, it will look and feel a bit different if you have not been in. We must move away from the Community Acupuncture model, as social distancing and health care setting requirements won't allow for it. So, from this point forward, we are treating one person at a time in one room each. We will move to doing that on a table as the vinyl of the tables is easier to sanitize between each of you. We would ask that if you would like a blanket, that you bring your own for now. 

Some things that are changing.

  • We will be wearing masks and we would love it if you do to! While there is no guideline that clients need to wear masks, we will ask you to don one when you are lying on your back on the treatment table.

  • Please bring a mask with you. If you need a disposable mask from us, we will provide one at a minimal charge. 

  • In our appointment reminder emails, there is a link to the MB Gov’t self-screening questionnaire. Please take it before you come. If you have symptoms, please reschedule your appointment. You MUST be re-screened before entering the building as well, so please wait in your car or outside the building and we will call you before your treatment. This will also be the time we tell you when it is safe to enter into the office. Please do not just park and walk up. And please do not congregate in the vestibule.

  • We will be observing physical distancing around our treatments, so this means that we are keeping the waiting room empty as much as possible. There will be no chairs. Because of this, we have a number of procedural changes:

    • Wait in your car until you receive a call and are screened and then asked to come in.

    • Wear your shoes and coats into the treatment room.

    • Wait in the treatment room after your treatment, and we will come get you when the reception room is empty.

    • Please come to your treatments alone, understanding that no one can wait in our waiting room.

    • Bring your own water to the clinic as we are removing the self-serve water.  

    • We will try and stagger when people arrive so we may bump your appointment (when you book it online and we notice) 15 minutes ahead or behind to accommodate physical distancing in our small reception space. 

    • Please do not come very early to your appointment, and do not plan to stay inside to wait for a ride/bus inside the clinic after your treatment. We will be increasing our sanitization process between each client so we need time for that. 

  • It is mandatory to use the hand sanitizer when you come in the door. 

  • There will be a new waiver to sign on your first visit back to the clinic. If you wish to have it ahead of time, please email us and ask for it. 

  • We also will be taking more time between appointments, to increase the disinfection process. We will be using less heat packs, table warmers, and the like as they all are problematic in reprocessing between treatments. 

Our new rates for acupuncture will be $70 per treatment, and for new patients, there is a extra $10 fee on your first visit (new patients).  If you have been using a package for acupuncture,, we will be honouring the dollar value of them. Basically each treatment in the format will be 2 treatments off the package at the old prices. We will not be selling packages at this time. 

 

Thankfully we have already been doing a lot of the right things.

Martin has decided to retire!

With the craziness in the world at this time, Martin has decided it is time for him to move from the working world to the retired world. He wishes everyone good health and long lives.
