FROM THE OWNER:
OUR OFFICE IS CLOSED FOR
THE SARS-COV-2 PANDEMIC!
I am providing an additional update on the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic based upon the most up-to-date information I have received. Unfortunately, the news is not good.
The most recent research in several countries and a large outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 in the state of Massachusetts suggests that now people without apparent COVID-19 symptoms are causing more spread of infection than understood previously. Researchers at Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota; Vanderbilt University School of Medicine; the Institute of Medical Virology in Frankfort, Germany; and Simon Fraser University in British Columbia are all beginning to see a significant trend toward people with no symptoms or mild symptoms transmitting SARS-CoV-2 at higher rates than previously thought. These “super shedders” harbor a higher than normal viral load than those with more severe symptoms, and as a result, they can spread disease to more people both because they carry more virus and because they do not act sick.
Without prevalent and easy-to-access testing, we cannot know who is infected or how many are infected. Sadly, the United States has not been able to meet this urgent need. This makes it incredibly important that you take every precaution to protect yourself and your loved ones. Proper and frequent handwashing; regular disinfecting of commonly touched surfaces; and avoiding touching your face continue to be critical. Social distancing is paramount. Older people and those with underlying health conditions need to be especially careful. Please be mindful and take precautions daily. These measures and overall good hygiene practices will help mitigate the effects of SARS-CoV-2 so that we can “flatten the curve” of infection rate so that our hospitals and frontline responders can save as many lives as possible.
Unfortunately, what this means for Remedy is that we will be closing our office until such time as it is safe to reopen. Although we were confident yesterday that we would remain open through this pandemic and sent out an email to you all saying so, in light of this new information, I can no longer confidently identify who may be infected. My history of asthma puts me in the category of those who would likely need hospitalization should I contract COVID-19. After discussing it with my colleagues, my doctor, and my husband, I cannot in good conscience continue to risk exposure to myself, my family or my patients. In that light, I have set forth new office policies which will be in effect until further notice:
New Pandemic Policies:
Remedy will not be seeing any new acupuncture, nutrition, or FRA patients until further notice.
Nutritional visits will be handled remotely (see REMOTE VIDEO CONSULT below). Paperwork should be sent via email to Melissa in advance of the appointment. Patients should be prepared to provide their weight, and if possible, their blood pressure. Supplements can continue to be ordered through me or via the Patient Direct platform.
FRA patients will need to reschedule their appointments to a future date.
Patients needing to refill supplements may do so by contacting Melissa via phone (770-518-1785) or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please no texts unless it is truly urgent. You may also use Patient Direct for ordering.
Remedy will be contacting all scheduled patients ahead of their appointments in the coming days. Patients may choose to 1) reschedule for a future date; or 2) attend a REMOTE VIDEO CONSULT in place of their appointment.
A REMOTE VIDEO CONSULT is a teleconference on your computer, tablet or mobile phone with Melissa. You will be interviewed and given a Chinese medicine diagnosis and treatment strategy involving acupressure, moxabustion, and/or herbs. You will also be sent a FREE at-home care kit of the same or greater value as your visit price.
Appointments scheduled for April will not be rescheduled at this time. We will take a "wait and see" approach and reassess the situation the first week of April.
Remedy will continue to maintain office hours to take patients’ calls, answer emails, and connect with patients via REMOTE VIDEO CONSULT appointments.
The situation that we find ourselves in is fluid and extraordinary. While I’m hopeful that Remedy will reopen in April, and I will, of course, continue to keep you apprised of our plans as circumstances change in our community.
Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation. We are all in this together, and together we will get through this.
Yours in health,
Melissa Mulvaney, MAE, DiplAc, LAc, CCWFN, CCMH

REVIEWS & FEEDBACK
Our Patients’ Experiences
“As a result of my successful treatments I have become a true advocate of acupuncture. Up to this point I had only used traditional Western medicine to treat my injuries. All of my previous attempts to address chronic pain, including physical therapy and chiropractic failed to improve the pain and restrictive issues I was facing. The treatment I received from Melissa was life changing.”
“Wonderful. Melissa is truly concerned with full body assessment. She takes her time to ask and answer questions so that she and the patient are on the same page. I love acupuncture. It has been instrumental in stress management and total body balance. I feel energized and able to focus better after my sessions. It is an experience you just can’t find anywhere else.”
“Simply amazing! Melissa is a truly gifted acupuncturist. She gets right to the heart of the issue and provides both immediate and long term relief from symptoms. Reduction in pain allows me to avoid more invasive treatment. Go - acupuncture will change your life for the better!”
BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
