These are trying times to say the least, and acupuncture, herbs and energy work are some of the best things we can do for our bodies, minds and spirits. As a way to minimize the spread of Covid-19 and support social distancing measures, Davis Community Acupuncture Clinic will be offering socially distanced community acupuncture, one-on-one and small group acupuncture sessions, and distance sessions.
If you're open to being in the clinic with others, select "community acupuncture session" when you book your appointment. Feel free to bring one other person with you to that appointment, but for groups larger than 2, you'll need to book consecutive 15 minute appointments. (max 2 people per 15 minute time slot)
For those who would prefer to have the clinic to themselves, select "private acupuncture session." I'll be seeing people one at a time, or in groups that are comfortable together in the clinic. (limit 4 people per appointment slot)
Here's what the visit will entail:
-First off, I'll ask you to cancel if you develop any of the Covid symptoms we've all been hearing about (no charge for last minute cancellations in this case): sore throat, fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, new loss of taste or smell, etc
-I'll ask that you wear a mask the whole time you're in the clinic. I'll do the same.
-I have liquid hand sanitizer available at the front door and outside the restroom, and powerful air filters running
-I can treat you in a recliner (they're going to be completely covered by a sheet) or on a table if you prefer
-I will clean high contact surfaces throughout the office and the restroom regularly
-The bins that were under the chairs have been taken out of circulation, so any personal belongings you bring in can be left on the carpet or on the seat with you
-The cost will be $80-$120 sliding scale for a private session for a single person, or $50-$70 each for groups and community acupuncture sessions.
About Itay (pronounced like eat-tie)
I've been practicing acupuncture since 2002 and in that time I've worked in a wide array of settings, including on a cruise ship. None of those has been as rewarding as working at the Davis Community Acupuncture Clinic. I founded this clinic in 2008, and I’m proud that the clinic has been able to provide tens of thousands of treatments since then in an affordable and sustainable way.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve.

2860 West Covell Blvd (near the intersection with Lake Blvd) in West Davis.
We are at the northwest end of town on Covell Blvd. We are west of Safeway, 113, Sutter Hospital and the UHaul. If you get to Lake Blvd (going west, towards Winters), you just past us. The street numbers are not easy to see, so look for the "Davis Community Acupuncture Clinic" sign high up on the building.
