After careful consideration & review of the latest guidelines From Governor Brown & the Oregon Health Authority Black Pearl Acupuncture will implement These New procedures to safely re-open.
What to expect:
*All healthcare practitioners at the clinic will be wearing face masks.
* All patients who come for treatment at the clinic will be required to wear a face mask.
* All patients will be asked to sanitize their hands with hand sanitizer provided for them upon entering the clinic.
*My capacity to see patients will be reduced, to allow for cleaning and sanitizing rooms in between patients.

We will also be using using UV lights to sanitize treatment rooms in between patients. Bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized in between patients.

· Respiratory or flu like symptoms
· Sore throat
· Shortness of breath
· Runny nose
· Diminished sense of taste or smell
*Below is an immune boosting tea called Cong Bai tea that I often recommend to patients to help them stay well during cold and flu season. It’s simple and it’s effective. It helps to boost your immune system and it’s good to drink at the first signs of a cold, feeling sick or for prevention of sickness.
The 4 ingredients/herbs tend to be items people already have in their home or are fairly accessible. I like this tea and Chinese Medicine for that matter because of its accessibility, below is the recipe and some explanations on each ingredient used…
Cong Bai Tea
1 bunch of green onions (chopped)
Green onions are known in traditional medicines to help dispel pathogens and helps to benefit the lungs.
2 orange peels (chopped)
For hundreds of years, herbalists trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine use orange peel to improve digestion, relieve intestinal gas and bloating, and resolve phlegm. This peel acts primarily on the digestive and respiratory systems.
5 slices of fresh ginger root (1/8″ thick)
In Traditional Chinese Medicine fresh ginger is an herb that is used to treat the early stages of sickness that affect the upper respiratory tract, the eyes, the ears, the nose, the throat or the skin.
1 TBSP of brown sugar
In Traditional Chinese Medicine brown sugar is known for its ability to tonify qi or strengthen the bodies energy in combination with the other herbs. It s also warming to the body.
4 cups of water
Boil ingredients for 10 minutes, strain & enjoy!
(If you are on any prescription medications that would negatively interact with any of these ingredients please refrain from making and drinking this tea.)
