Pandemic safety protocols

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, Flying Turtle Healing Arts has established new policies and procedures regarding appointments.

Face masks: we’re keeping them on.

  • We are technically a health care office and there are patients who are immuno-compromised, Even if you are fully vaccinated, please stay masked in the public areas of the building like the hallways and our waiting room. You are welcome to take the mask off when you are by yourself in the treatment room.

What you need to KNOW

  • If you have traveled or gone outside your social bubble/quarantine pod, follow CDC travel guidelines and state/local recommendations.
  • If you are feeling unwell or have any flu/cold symptoms, DO NOT come in. Reschedule your appointment online using the original confirmation email or contact me if we are scheduled to meet within 24 hours. We can explore using telehealth and herbal medicine instead.
  • If you (or someone in your family) tested positive for COVID-19 and has since recovered, you must be symptom free for at least 14 days or otherwise tested negative.
  • If you or someone in your family has increased risk factors like hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, chronic pulmonary illness, etc., please consider postponing our appointment if you are not yet vaccinated.

What you need to DO


Safety Protocols that will stay in place

  • Everyone will wear masks and either wash their hands or use hand sanitizer, which will be provided in the waiting room and treatment rooms.
  • Treatment rooms will be aired out for 30 minutes between sessions.
  • An air purifier will run constantly to clean the air, unless the noise bothers you (in which case, they will run on High in between sessions).
  • Surfaces will be wiped down after each patient and the floors mopped (rugs have been removed) regularly.
  • I will now be wearing “clinic only” clothes that will stay within the space and be sent out to be washed with the linens.

What I have always done/already had in place:

  • Wash my hands and use hand sanitizer before every contact.
  • Change the sheets for every patient.
  • Use gloves when needed, i.e. during dry needling.

Let’s keep one another safe and healthy! Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
