Now Offering: Telehealth

As the world around us changes as we know it, the most important thing still remains our health. 

In order to shift with the changing times to continue serving my existing patients with the best treatments and care, I am now taking bookings for virtual sessions.

What is telehealth or a virtual visit? We give you all the wonderful care that you've been used to receiving but it's in front of a screen. During these 30- or 60-minute sessions, we will go over how you are doing, what symptoms you are experiencing, and come up with a plan to meet your needs. In lieu of acupuncture, I'll empower you with self-care tools and options for care like acupressure, qi gong exercises, deep breathing, meditation, nutritional guidance, herbal and enzyme supplements, or simply connecting in a supportive conversation.

Not only are these treatments effective for continued care during a time of isolation, but they are also extremely valuable to those who are sick or have pressing matters in need of treatment with limited access to Western medicine. If you are experiencing high amounts of anxiety/depression, sleep issues, or digestive issues, I can help you with specific protocols. Herbal and enzyme formulas can be drop-shipped directly to you.

Please keep me in mind as a stable source for your health and well-being during this uncertain time. This option is currently only available to existing patients of Pivotal Point who live in Wisconsin.

Now more than ever, we need to prioritize our health and healing!

Book now for a 60-minute session ($90) or a 30-minute sessions ($60).

 

Clinic Announcement 3/16/2020

“Everything we do before a pandemic will seem alarmist. Everything we do after will seem inadequate.”  ~ Michael Leavitt

I have been monitoring how Covid-19 has been moving through the country and how it is affecting Wisconsin. From all that I have seen, the next two weeks will be critical to slowing its spread in the U.S. I have read a lot of discussions by impassioned acupuncturists all over the world, arguing for and against closing our practices. All of us wish to be of service and to that end, I have come to a conclusion.

Out of an abundance of caution, I will be temporarily closing my practice for two weeks starting Tuesday, March 17th. While this has been a difficult decision, I feel wholeheartedly that it is the right one. After that period of time, I will evaluate the situation in 1-week increments as we learn more. Just like you, I am hoping this blows over quickly and I'm trying to control as much as I personally can at this point.

The work I do is in close proximity with others and involves multiple patients coming in and out of the same rooms. I have always maintained a well-ventilated, sanitized and clean office, and recently increased cleaning measures to try to stay ahead of this. At this point, though, I feel it is best to shut down to keep my staff, my patients, and me healthy.

While the work I do is important, I am following the lead of most other non-essential medical offices around the country. This will have major financial implications for many people, myself included. Ultimately, however, preventing the spread of Coronavirus is also part of the Hippocratic Oath of "First do no harm." Chinese Medicine excels at immune strengthening and even treatment of onset of symptoms as an adjunct in this case to your work with your medical doctor.

I am developing plans to continue to provide some form of care, such as providing consultations over a HIPAA-compliant video streaming service and taking orders for enzymes and drop-shipping them to you directly. I hope to develop some videos and presentations on nutrition, enzymes, herbs, and acupuncture. Some of it will be free content; some paid. If you have any suggestions, I am all ears.

Thank you for supporting small businesses. Wash your hands, have faith, and do your best to keep fear at bay. This too shall pass!

Yours in health,

Franciska
