The FAQ page is finally here! (It's about time...!) If you're on a computer, hover your mouse over the 'About' section, and if you're on a mobile device, click on the menu at the very top of the page and then click the ˅ to expand the About menu. In the FAQs, we talk about how to ask for reimbursement from your insurance (either a self-submitted claim, reimbursement through an FSA or HSA, and how to ask for reimbursement for chronic low back treatment through Medicare benefits), and a lot more! If you have questions we didn't address in our FAQs, let us know so we can get them added. We're trying to approach our FAQs with some perspective and a bit of a sense of humor while we're at it.
We also tweaked the design of our website a little bit to make viewing our site on mobile devices a little less... ick. Why didn't anyone tell us it was so scrambled and hard to navigate?!? Not to worry! We've gone through each page and cleaned things up a bit, so hopefully it's a little easier on the eyes. And we've done some reorganizing to nest some of our menu options under others. The Forms page can be found under Home, Community is now under About, and Online Workshops is under Treatments. It's a bit cleaner, and hopefully easier to find the information you're looking for.
We're getting into gift-giving season mode. We've updated the site to have more obvious links to our electronic gift cards, and added an option for physical gift certificates to either be mailed to your loved ones or delivered to you to be given in person to a household pod member (socially distanced and masked delivery, of course).
Please take the time for self-care this giving season. Gift-giving doesn't skip the self just because it's the self, so make sure that you're doing what you need to do for you. Our schedule is getting a bit busier in recent weeks, so if you'd like to schedule a session for yourself to dedicate time to relax and recover from the stress of pandemic holiday preparations, make sure you get that on the books so you guarantee yourself that little bit of self-care. It's so easy to forget about yourself this time of year anyway, and if this pandemic has taught us anything this year, is that you have to make the time to take care of yourself. We have a private room ready for you. If you're having a hard time finding something on the online schedule that will work for you, please don't hesitate to reach out so we can find another time.
Thank you, as always for your continued support. It means more than you know. Without you, we cannot be.
With the holidays approaching, there are a lot of questions about what's going to happen with restrictions and guidance as the pandemic continues. This is far from over, and while the talk of a vaccine (several of them, actually) sound promising, it will be a while before it's made available to the general public. My sincere hope is that it's sooner rather than later, and that it does turn out to be both safe -and- effective. In the mean time, we need to stay vigilant. Numbers are exploding across the country, and local hospitals are issuing dire warnings about the need for people to keep on keeping on with the masks, the social distancing, the hand washing, the cough and sneeze etiquette, and the routine testing. It takes all of these measures together to be able to live our lives outside of the safety of our household pandemic pods.
I know it's exhausting. I know it's old. I'm tired of it too, and I hate wearing masks just as much as you do. My skin is angry at the dropping humidity levels while the hand washing and hand sanitizer baths continue, and I so miss hugs from friends. And I'm exhausted of the nasal swabs tickling my brain and making my eyes water every week.
But these are the things we have to continue doing, no matter how tired we are of being so extra careful all the time, so that we can continue to edge our way as close as humanly possible to what used to be normal. It's so easy to give in for the holidays. So easy to make those travel plans, to make an exception to get together in larger groups than we should, and to justify technicality in order to feel like things are back to normal. But that's the worst possible thing we can do right now.
Please stay safe out there, friends. I know too many people who have gotten lucky, and too many people who haven't. The last thing this world needs right now is to not have you in it. To not have someone you love dearly.
It's just not worth the risk.
For now, we're still open, still spending more time cleaning than treating, and still offering donation-based remote services for those who either can't leave the house or don't want to because it doesn't feel safe. As we get into the giving season, please consider a donation so that we can subsidize treatment for some of those who have fallen on harder times than most and can't afford to come in for regular treatments like they used to. Consider gift cards for loved ones.
Of course, try to shop small locally owned (and Black-owned) businesses for your holiday shopping as well. We're all feeling the pinch, and many don't know how much longer they can stay open.
Without you, we cannot be. Please stay safe.

Once you've found your way back to the healthiest version of you, we'll continue to work to help you stay there.

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.
