Know that I miss our sessions together, and look forward to picking up treatment whenever that may be. :) My best days are the ones where I spend some time in nature. I recommend making a point of that.

Here are the transmission prevention measures I am taking in clinic.

  • Avoiding unnecessary contact with patients

  • Using additional clean techniques to ensure that hands-on therapy is performed with minimized risk.

  • Increasing cleaning regimen by disinfecting all shared surfaces, and equipment before and after each appointment. and leaving more space between appointments for disinfection.

  • I will be washing hands before, after, and during every appointment.

  • I will stay home if feeling unwell and return only when completely symptom-free.

  • the 24-hour cancellation policy will not be in effect if you are feeling unwell or sick.

  • video conferencing or phone calls for health consultation, and qigong instruction will be made available (via phone, skype, zoom, facebook messenger)

  • I am keeping myself informed via reputable sources, WHO & CDC. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to get in touch.

What you can do:

  • Please use hand sanitizer or wash your hands upon arrival

  • If you feel unwell, please choose to stay at home.

  • If need be, cancel or rebook appointments with as much notice as possible.

  • If you are immune compromised please take extreme caution.

  • Be in touch if you would like to arrange for a remote health appointment. (Health Consultation, Video QiGong Instruction, Distance Reiki)
