We began accepting donations when we had to shut down temporarily at the beginning of the pandemic. We were worried we wouldn't be able to make it through without some financial help from our community. Once we realized we were in better shape financially than we expected to be, we set aside that money to be able to establish a scholarship to cover Traditional Chinese Medicine care for someone who wouldn't otherwise be able to access it.
To apply for this scholarship, either for yourself or on behalf of someone else in need, just send us an email telling us a little bit about the person who would benefit from this scholarship, and give us an idea of what kinds of things we can address for them. We can focus on things like anxiety, PTSD, pain, stress, or even a combination of things.
The scholarship will cover one treatment a week for either:
one acupuncture and cupping session per week for six weeks
one hour of reflexology per week for six weeks
one cupping session per week for eight weeks
Priority will be given to BIPOC and/or LGBTQ+ folks, and the recipient will be selected based on need and on how appropriate acupuncture, cupping, or reflexology would be in each situation.
Please make sure we know how to get in touch with the person who is selected, and please share this opportunity far and wide. We posted it on our social media today, so feel free to share the post or tag folks who may be interested.
As COVID-19 restrictions continue to be eased and, in some cases, lifted completely, please keep in mind that we are still following CDC guidelines, and as a healthcare setting, proper masking (covering mouth and nose for the duration of your visit) is still required in our office for all visitors, regardless of vaccination status. We do still recommend wearing your mask for the entire time you're inside the office building, as well. We do still have a handful of fun cotton masks available for sale if you'd like to add to your collection for future flu, cold, and allergy season use. However, we are easing some of our precautions in the office as follows:
Nitrile gloves are no longer being worn for extended contact services like cupping, Gua Sha, and reflexology. Research indicates that these types of interaction are low-risk for transmission when proper hand washing protocols are followed. Like massage therapy, skin-to-skin contact can be a comforting and healing exchange, and many of us have been starved of physical contact for most of the last year or so. If you'd prefer that we wear gloves for these services, we do still have an ample supply and are more than happy to don a pair. Please don't hesitate to let us know if this would make you more comfortable.
Our TCM Facial service is available for those who are fully vaccinated (2 or more weeks have passed since administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or since administration of the second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines) who are being treated for TMJ dysfuntion and stress that manifests as jaw tension and headaches. Please contact us directly to schedule this service for you, as it is not available for online self-scheduling at this time. Please also have a copy of your vaccine card or bring your vaccine card so that we can scan it to your records.
Time buffers between appointments for patients who are fully vaccinated have been reduced slightly to allow for more people to be seen through the day. This means there may be a chance that you run into another person in the waiting area who is checking out, or you may be taken directly to a treatment room for intake if there's another person still in a treatment room. Please know that this will only be happen if both individuals involved are fully vaccinated. We are still alternating treatment rooms to give our air filters plenty of time to cycle between patients.
Temperature checks and pulse oximetry screening is only being done for those who have not yet been vaccinated, cannot be vaccinated, or are going through the process of vaccination but haven't reached the 2 week post-completion mark yet. Once Kentucky reaches herd immunity, we will revisit global temperature checks.
Our late reschedule, no-show, and cancellation policy will be going back into effect beginning July 1. All current patients will be receiving an email with a copy of our complete clinic policies attached. No changes have been made at this time, so there is no need to sign and return.

A holistic and integrative approach to healthcare.
"The part can never be well unless the whole is well." - Plato
At Healthy Point Acupuncture, we take a holistic and integrative approach to your healthcare, treating you like the unique individual you are and working with your Western medicine practitioners to ensure you get the best care possible.
Whether it's musculoskeletal pain, headaches, anxiety, problems sleeping, or good old fashioned stress, our number one priority is getting you back to healthy so you can continue to do the things you love. Once you've found your way back to the healthiest version of you, we'll continue to work to help you stay there.
Acupuncture is a wonderful reactive treatment for many conditions, but where it really excels is in prevention. Even if you're a healthy person who rarely gets sick, we'd love to see you occasionally for preventive, balancing treatments to make sure you stay in tip-top shape throughout the year. Season changes? Excellent plan! Stressful holiday planning? No problem! Even if you've never left your healthy point, we'd love to help you make sure you stay there.
We've created a welcoming, relaxing environment to help your body find healing. With flexible hours and two private treatment rooms, we'd love to schedule a time to see you!
