The position of our professional body, The Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine, is that acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine by our qualified practitioner are a medical or health service and, accordingly, we plan to stay open as usual.
During a lockdown we as a clinic will dispense herbal medicines for anyone who is suffering from any disorder including upper respiratory problems as well as Covid-19.
We are still open for people who are in need of urgent help from acupuncture relating to their physical or mental well-being.
Our overriding priority is the safety of patients and staff and we continue to wear the appropriate PPE. We sanitise and clean the rooms after each treatment and observe social distancing.
Please be aware that the possibility of complete closure remains, if the government decides to stop acupuncture or traditional Chinese medicine and tells us to close. If this happens we will update our website and contact all those clients who have booked appointments.
