As of September 13, 2020:
The little studio that could…AND DID!
Erik and Damien have been given the green light by the City of San Francisco to reopen beginning the week of September 14. Awny continues to offer Acupuncture treatments as she has throughout the past few months as a primary care provider in the state of CA.
Erik will begin seeing clients, but on a very limited schedule, on Saturday, October 3. Treatments will be offered on Saturdays only for 60-minute sessions only to ease back into working with clients.
Damien will continue with his typical schedule offering the full range of treatment lengths: 30, 60, 75, 90 and 120-minutes beginning on Saturday, September 19.
We raised studio prices by $5 to help us offset the large loss of income due to the Pandemic.
Be assured that your health and safety, as well as that of our studio and practitioners, is our top priority. We have sanitation and distancing measures already in place and will continue to monitor best practices as directed from local government as well as our professional trade organizations. We’ve even added UV light HEPA filters to treatment rooms. Things might look a little different but our dedication to you remains the same.
It’s been a challenging few months since March. Please continue to move your body, love yourself and be an agent of change in our world. So many other small businesses will not be opening their doors and our hearts are heavy with them.
