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.
