I know what a difficult time it is for everyone right now with the Coronavirus pandemic. I have to have trust that everything will be OK, and that there will be so many good things to come from this. I also really acknowledge that many of us are experiencing very real fear, pain, and loss right now. I am feeling all of those things too, and I stand with you in solidarity.
I have made the very difficult decision to close my practice for the forseeable future. As a nationally registered health professional, it is still legal for me to practice, however I feel that I cannot in good conscience continue to practice when what we most urgently need to do is flatten the curve of this pandemic. Even though I was taking all possible precautions in the clinic to keep it as clean and hygienic as possible, I think the only real way for us to all slow the spread is to stay home and away from each other as much as possible.
Yesterday, as I called all of the wonderful patients that still had appointments with me, to cancel them in person, one of them said that what we are all doing in practicing social isolation, is an act of love. I thought that was a beautiful way to view the sacrifices we are all making.
You might have heard that in Chinese language, the complex character for 'crisis' is made up of the simpler characters for 'danger' and 'opportunity'. Whilst this isn't strictly accurate, I do think that this is a changing point that has the potential for great things to happen.
I have lots of ideas for how I can still serve you and help you to maintain your health and wellbeing. In order to shift with the changing times to continue serving you with the best treatments and care, I will soon be taking bookings for online sessions, and am busy working away on producing some online courses as well (my inner geek is loving this!).
During a 30 or 60 minute session, we can move through an acupuncture treatment together over a live video call utilising the power of acupressure and Chinese self-massage. We can also cater the session to your needs which could include an herbal prescription, health coaching, deep breathing, meditation, nutritional guidance, or simply connecting in a supportive conversation.
Not only are these treatments effective for continued care during a time of isolation, but they are also extremely valuable to those who are sick or have pressing matters in need of treatment with no access to Western medicine.
Please keep this in mind for your friends, family, and community. I am here as a stable source for your health and well being during this uncertain time.
As the world around us changes as we know it, the most important thing still remains our health. Now more than ever we need to prioritise our health and healing.
I will be sharing more information about these sessions soon, with a sliding scale of fees to enable everyone to be able to access them. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you would like more information.
Take care, stay safe and well.
