Acupuncture safety during COVID

At our Chicago acupuncture clinic, we continue to make your safety and comfort our top priority.

Last Update July 1, 2022: As restrictions are shifting, we are adjusting our policies and hours accordingly. Your safety and comfort will always be our top concerns. All our practitioners have been vaccinated. In accordance with city guidelines, masks are now optional while in the clinic.Please feel free to request your practitioner to wear a mask at any time.

We hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy. We wanted to let you know, that although we are running on a limited schedule due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are still here to support you during this difficult period. We hope to gradually increase these hours back to our regular Monday through Saturday schedule in the coming weeks.

Angie Ng is seeing patients on Mondays from 12 pm to 8 pm, Wednesdays from 10 am to 7:30 pm and Thursdays from 12 pm to 8 pm.

Sarah Edwards is seeing patients on Tuesdays from 2 pm to 7 pm, Fridays from 10 am to 7 pm and Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm.

As always, your health and safety are our top priorities. Here's what we are doing to ensure your safety and comfort when you come visit us:

  • Frequent disinfection of commonly contacted surfaces such as door handles, light switches, phones, credit card machines, counter tops, pens, etc.
  • Diligent and frequent hand washing/sanitizing before and after each patient
  • Routine professional cleaning of office daily and deep cleaning every 2 weeks
  • Freshly laundered sheets and table covers with every patient
In addition to the above safety protocols, we now have Germ Guardian HEPA UV-C air purifiers running throughout the office to help circulate, filter, and sanitize the air. These air purifiers help to reduce airborne pathogens and irritants and keep the air flowing through the office. Not only is the air filtered with HEPA filters, it is sanitized with UV light to kill germs.

Additionally, we would like to provide some general tips for minimizing risk of infection and keeping a strong immune system. Please take a look at our blog entry Acupuncture and Other Natural Ways to Boost the Immune System.

If you have questions or would like to schedule please email us at ang@acubalancechicago.com or call us at 312-890-5553 Monday through Friday.
