A TeleHealth response to COVID19

Telehealth

 Due the ongoing spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, the World Health Organization (WHO), declared a pandemic.  In response,  public health experts around the world have encouraged individuals and organizations to use of social distancing to "flatten the curve" in their communities to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Because face-to-face appointments both risk the transmission of COVID-19 and use personal protective equipment that is in dire shortage, telehealth has emerged as an important alternative.

Telehealth, seeing a health provider using a video teleconferencing service, has been increasingly utilized over the past decade to deliver health care with both adults and children. Research demonstrates that telehealth interventions produce positive outcomes in reducing pain, disability, depression, and anxiety comparable to traditional face-to-face encounters.

Previor to the pandemic,  uncertainty about the coverage of telehealth by insurance companies dissuaded many from utalizing telehealth. In response to the current pandemic, federal, state and insurance requlations have rapidly changed to allow easier access.

If you are currently experiencing increased levels of stress and anxiety due to the COVID-19 outbreak, contact a health provider.

How Acupuncture Can Change You

The "Chi" is what acupuncture is all about. Okay, so there is more to acupuncture therapy than simply muttering the word "Chi," but the concept of it does have a great deal, if not all to do, with the therapy of the acupuncture way.
