Allergies

Currently Providing Virtual Office Visits

What a wild ride COVID-19 has and will be! I want to take a minute to thank each and every one of you for supporting my practice and trusting me with your health concerns, I appreciate you greatly.  I’ve decided to switch from practicing in the clinic to providing online consults via phone/Zoom for at least two weeks.  Typically acupuncturists encourage patients to come in when sick since acupuncture and Chinese herbs can often stop or lessen severity of seasonal illnesses, however due to the fact that COVID-19 is highly contagious I feel the best way to serve my patients and the community right now is virtually.

The tele-medicine sessions are for new and existing patients for issues like immunity, asthma, anxiety, insomnia, digestion, allergies, fertility, and women’s health.  Herbs/supplements/essential will be drop shipped or delivered to your home as well as ear seeds and magnets to place on acupuncture points, you will be guided on where/how to place them. Diet, exercise, and lifestyle recommendations will also be included with the tele-session.

Click Here to schedule a consult. Please email me if you would like my immunity supplement guide, discount codes are included, you do no need to schedule an appointment for this. Wishing you all the best, be safe and please follow the CDC guideline’s, we will get through this together. Sincerely, Sandra McKay-Billion L. Ac.
