New Protocols Keep Community Acupuncture Safe at Indian River Acupuncture & Functional Medicine in Vero Beach
Indian River Acupuncture & Functional Medicine of Vero Beach is opening its private treatment rooms to patients looking for community acupuncture. Community acupuncture is usually offered in a group setting; however, in order to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, patients are now being seen in a private treatment room at the same community rate as in a group setting.
Conditions addressed through a private community session include acute or chronic pain, headaches, insomnia, allergies, anxiety, depression and stress. An initial community acupuncture visit includes a Chinese medicine review of systems as well as tongue and pulse diagnosis. The fee for an initial treatment is $65 and follow-up appointments are $40. A treatment plan for most conditions includes three sessions within two weeks and a reevaluation to determine if additional care is recommended. In a private treatment room patients relax with a soft glow from a salt lamp while listening to soothing music and keeping warm under a heat lamp. 15-minute consultations are available to those who would like to discuss if acupuncture is right for them.
Indian River Acupuncture & Functional Medicine is located at 1300 36th St, Ste H, Vero Beach. They follow CDC guidelines for infection prevention. To schedule an appointment, call 772-564-8383. IndianRiverAcupuncture.com.
