Regarding COVID-19

Things are Changing So Check Back Often

The new Coronavirus and COVID-19 are changing many things in our lives. Follow this space for news of community acupuncture's return and to learn about TeleHealth, our new service. 

Dear Friends,

As of March 20th, 2020, we have temporarily ceased providing acupuncture at Seminole Heights Community Acupuncture.

We closed for 3 reasons: first, new federal and state guidelines were put in place prohibiting groups of 10 or more people in order to halt the spread of coronavirus. And then late in the day on March 20th, Gov. DeSantis closed all medical practices: here’s his Executive Order.

Most importantly, we want to help Tampa stop the spread of COVID-19 and flatten the curve. At this time, we need to work together as a community, stay home, and practice social distancing, so we can limit the number of people at any one time who need hospital resources, like ventilators.

Continuity of Care

To provide you with continuity of care we have begun to offer TeleHealth sessions. Our new TeleHealth service allows us to interact directly with our patients via the internet (aka Videoconferencing), from the privacy of your own home. Keep an eye on your email for more information about TeleHealth and using traditional Chinese medicine at home.

The brick & mortar SHCA will be open again as soon as possible! We’ll send an email update when we are preparing to reopen.

We’ll be missing you so stay in touch!

In community & solidarity,

Gururas & the SHCA Crew

🐯P.S. We know this is a trying time for us all. We’re part of a cooperative and have always found tough times are easier with a little help from our friends. In fact, our friends at Working Class Acupuncture (WCA) want to help. If you feel like kitty gifs and videos might help you feel better, our friends at WCA will send your one a day —  direct to your email inbox.🐈

If you want in, sign up HERE for WCAs COVID fighting cats. It will be just cuteness and laughs, nothing more.🐱

POCA

POCA

Seminole Heights Community Acupuncture, our staff, and volunteers are members of the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture. POCA is a co-operative run and fueled by co-op members who believe that acupuncture should be available to people: learn more about that here.

We see acupuncture changing lives every day. It’s simple, safe and effective, as well as the most widely used medicine in the world! Last year POCA clinics, about 150 of them in all, gave more than 1 million treatments.

We support the Community Acupuncture movement with our POCA membership and our volunteer hours.

We know that acupuncture can change the world, and would love for you to join us in The Calmest Revolution Ever Staged!
