While we are working behind the scenes to reopen our clinics in the safest way possible, we have also worked out a way to see you sooner AND contribute to social justice causes we care about – Curbside Acupuncture! We have had three successful outdoor clinics thus far, and are planning on adding a few more Saturdays at the Laurel/Diamond parking lot until we reopen.
How it works: From 10 am to 2 pm we set up shade structures and chairs in the parking lot and give you acupuncture on a drop-in basis and by donation. We can also come to your car and needle you there. We have protocols in place to keep everyone as safe as possible and can only treat people if they are wearing masks. There is no indoor access so please use the bathroom before you arrive and bring your own water. All donations collected go directly to a local BIPOC-led organization.
Jeff: Mostly, abiding. I’ve been attempting some homeschooling for my kids while my wife works from home, which is really interesting and challenging, and does not come at all naturally to me. And, lots of gardening, It’s quiet in my garden and easy to stay 6 feet away from everyone.
OAP: What have you been enjoying the most about this time?
Jeff: The clean air. And, baking lots of desserts. In fact, I baked so many desserts, my kids, who are too busy eating brownies and chocolate chip cookies, forgot we had a pumpkin pie and I’m eating that all by myself. Yum!
OAP: What is something funny that’s happened during the last two weeks?
Jeff: Well, when I actually manage to teach my kids something while homeschooling, I point finger guns at them and yell, “You’ve been dad schooled!” Also, every day, for about 45 minutes we do vigorous exercise that we call Physical Education With Dad. The kids like that the acronym spells PEWD.
