Pay It Forward – How Very Well Acupuncture is Coping during Coronavirus

Small businesses and non-profits are especially hard hit during the coronavirus outbreak. We get it! Baltimore Fishbowl is a small business, too. To help small businesses and non-profits, we will provide regular updates to let you know how they are coping. 

The following is an update from Dr. David Buscher, D.Ac., L.Ac., Dipl.Ac.,
Doctor of Acupuncture at Very Well Acupuncture, on how they are adapting and coping during these times.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
In the face of the unknown risks, we decided to close the clinic completely on March 18th. During that time, we changed our clinic management software to a service that allows us to conduct telemedicine appointments. “Telemedicine acupuncture” may sound strange, but it’s actually really lovely and empowering. On a secure video call, we talk about the client’s pain or concerns and then guide them through a series of acupressure, self-massage, and breathing exercises.

Now, having received best practices for disinfection from our national organizations, we have reopened the clinic for limited office visits, as well.

Virtual Classes with Yoga Tree Baltimore – Adapting during Coronavirus

Small businesses and non-profits are especially hard hit during the coronavirus outbreak. We get it! Baltimore Fishbowl is a small business, too. To help small businesses and non-profits, we will provide regular updates to let you know how they are coping. 

The following is an update from Sarah Ittmann Leite, Founder and Senior Teacher of Yoga Tree Baltimore, on how they are adapting and coping during these times.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
On Sunday April 15th we began to Livestream our fitness and yoga classes directly from our Hampden Yoga studio to allow some of our older and immunocompromised students to practice from the safety of their home. By the next day we were running a full schedule of three to four virtual classes a day. We purposefully created a vibrant April. Full of extra classes, Zoom Happy Hours, Weekly Meditation and a yoga challenge. “Commit to 15” an invitation to take at least 15 classes in the month of April. We knew we wanted to keep everyone accountable and inspired. Even with this push we lost a large amount of our members. Like all of our neighboring stores, we have seen a huge drop in walk in sales. What we still have is a powerful community of dedicated students who practice their yoga, and who often bring us great ideas. We are now able to teach remotely. By offering our online services further afield we can teach to people all over the world. We are looking for more ways to bring yoga to those who need it: we are offering small group classes taught on Zoom to corporations wanting to support their workers who may be under more pressure than usual. If your readers would like us to teach their family or team let us know. We can organize a weekly time or a one off.
