The soothing atmosphere in our clinic exists because all of our patients create it by relaxing together. We appreciate everyone’s presence! This kind of collective stillness is a rare and precious thing in our rushed and busy society. In order to make our community treatment room enjoyable for everyone please observe the following courtesies: turn cell phones off in the treatment room, keep voices low, and avoid wearing scented products which can trigger allergic reactions in many people.

Patients may not enter the clinic if they have had a positive Covid test or a known Covid exposure within the past 14 days.
