Bernalillo county is currently in Low Risk for COVID We are using Covid ActNow for the risk levels and they base it on current CDC risk levels
We will be seeing all new and current patients – any Covid vaccination status. Check covidactnow.org website for easy to find risk levels.
We will still be requiring masks for your appointment. Please wear a well-fitted mask and we do appreciate if you can bring your own.
Please DO NOT come if you have any potential COVID, cold or flu symptoms – particularly new symptoms of sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, coughing, headaches or fatigue. (If the acupuncturist gets a cold, we will have to close down the clinic temporarily!)
If you believe your cold symptoms are due to allergies, please wait 7 days and check with a COVID test, then come in.
If you get COVID, and have no symptoms, please wait 7 days after your positive test before coming in (this amount of time may change depending on the current variant).
If you get COVID and have symptoms, please wait 7 days after your major symptoms (fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat) have gone before coming in. It is ok to come in with lingering symptoms after you are over the acute stage. We are seeing a lot of longer COVID symptoms such as fatigue, lingering cough, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, strange pains, brainfog, due to post-COVID or Long COVID and acupuncture is really helpful with these.
Our hours by appointment are:
Appointment times for new patients are limited to the first two hours of the shift.
COVID Procedure Changes
These procedures and changes that we implemented during Covid are here to stay for the foreseeable future. Here are some of the admin changes:
There will no longer be a physical receptionist.
We will be answering voicemails by text
In clinic, the acupuncturist will only be doing acupuncture and COVID safety procedures. They will not be able to help you with check-in. If you find you need help physically in clinic, or with booking, or with the payment/check-in procedure, please bring someone to help you who will leave once you are comfortable.
Returning existing patients ($20-50 sliding scale)
Please Note: If you have not been to clinic in the past 3 years, we ask you to please book in as a new patient – see below for instructions. Your appointment will be cancelled and we will ask you to reschedule as a new patient if it has been more than 3 years.
If you have been to clinic more than a year ago you can book here after watching this reorientation video. (Note: we are no longer requiring a temperature check or symptoms checklist.)
Please then fill out new paperwork.

Return the completed and signed packet to us prior to your appointment by scanning and emailing to email@example.com. If sending pictures, please send as medium or high-resolution images. This helps the acupuncturist review your history before your appointment. If you plan to bring your completed paperwork with you on the day of your appointment please let us know ahead of time. Thanks!
Please don’t come in if you have any COVID, cold or flu symptoms.
We no longer have an in-person receptionist so cannot accommodate Walk-ins anymore. We do have a virtual receptionist who will answer, texts, emails and voicemails by text Tues thru Sat.
New Patients ($50)
Returning patients who have not been in the last 3 years, should book as new patients.
