March '20 Special

$10 treatments for formerly incarcerated folks and family members of those who are currently incarcerated.

The U.S. has the highest percentage of incarcerated people in the world and this system disproportionately affects poor communities and communities of color. Our March special seeks to offer some relief to those who have experienced incarceration and their families. Simply let the front desk know that you would like to take advantage of our monthly special when you come in for your treatment.

Offer limited to 1 treatment/week. New patients responsible for $10 intake fee.

A Note on Corona Virus

It's cold and flu season and while COVID-19 is on everyone's mind, we want to join the CDC in reminding you to "keep calm and wash your hands".

Acupuncture and herbs are an incredible tool in helping the body boost the immune system and recover from an upper respiratory infection. We thought this would be a good time to share BAC's practices and policies when treating patients who are under the weather.

When to come in:

-Wanting to prevent getting sick during cold and flu season... come in!

-If you are feeling sick and have a cough or are sneezing, without a fever... come in, we have masks you can wear during treatment.

-Recovering from a cold or flu, but have lingering symptoms, without a fever... come in!

When to stay home:

-If you have a fever we ask that you please stay home.

Everyone can do these things to avoid the spread of viruses:

-Wash your hands!

-Avoid touching your face.

-Sneeze or cough into a tissue and throw it away. If you sneeze or cough into your hands, immediately wash them.

BAC is committed to creating a safe environment for everyone in our community - this includes those who are immunocompromised. We routinely clean the clinic, disinfect surfaces, offer masks to patients with coughs or sneezes, and always change out sheets and blankets immediately after someone gets treated who is experiencing any symptoms of a cold or flu. This has always been our standard procedure - we just thought this would be a good time to share this information with you!

One last thing - fear and anxiety about COVID-19 in the US has lead to stigmatization and discrimination towards Asian people around the globe. This outbreak has highlighted many of the stereotypes and challenges that those of East Asian descent face even when there is no public health emergency. We want to remind our community that this kind of discrimination creates more fear or anger towards ordinary people instead of communicating the facts about the virus.
