Dear Sage Community,
We are accepting new patients — mindfully and carefully.
To ensure the safety and well-being of our patients & staff, Sage Acupuncture is following the recommendations for healthcare facilities by the CDC and other leading medical authorities. In accordance, all staff and patients, including those who are vaccinated, are required to wear masks while in any of our clinics.
Before coming in for your appointment, please review and submit the following forms:
- #1 – Fill out this form only once. Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19
- #2 – Fill out this form the day before EACH appointment. COVID-19 Agreement and Screening Questionnaire
Guidelines for keeping our community safe:
1. Symptom Screening:
If you are sick in any way, including fever, body aches, sore throat, or uncommon digestive upset, please call 512-968-2605 for assistance rescheduling.
All patients will be pre-screened to verify that they are symptom-free and have not been exposed to anyone with symptoms or known illness. Please see the Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to COVID-19 and Screening Questionnaire below.
All visitors will be required to bring and wear a mask covering their mouth and nose at all times. All of our practitioners and staff will also be masked.
3. Safety and Sanitation:
We are following best practices as outlined by the CDC and professional governing bodies. They include the following:
Appointments are arranged to ensure minimal, if any, contact between you and anyone other than your practitioner and our front desk staff.
To keep non-essential contact to a minimum, the parking lot is the new waiting room. Upon arrival please text us and we will reply to let you know when to come in for a temperature check. Only patients receiving treatment are allowed inside the building.
You will be directed to wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water before going to the treatment room. We ask that you leave all non-essential items at home or in your car.
While you are receiving your acupuncture treatment you will have an opportunity (as always), to give us updates on your health or request supplement refills. However, if you would like to have a more in-depth discussion, please schedule a telehealth consultation.
All rooms and frequently touched surfaces are disinfected before and after each patient’s visit.
In order to maintain proper social distancing in our waiting area, if you need an herb or supplement order filled and are not coming in to receive acupuncture, please call ahead of time to arrange for pickup. You can also access our recommended products by clicking on Fullscript or Theralogix.
4. Virtual Telehealth Visits:
This is a great option for patients who feel best receiving care from home.
What we do during a virtual visit:
Follow-up care and modifications for pre-existing treatment plans.
New and on-going diet, lifestyle, and herbal/supplement prescriptions for women’s health/fertility issues, and many other health concerns such as insomnia, anxiety, PMS, digestion, and immune support.
At home self-care plans including fertility management and emotional wellness.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this challenging time and for any changes that may evolve in the upcoming weeks. We will continue to post on Facebook and Instagram with any updates.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
