Today’s blogtober post is an experiment! I am going to be posting parts of the newsletter to the blog going forward. What better time than the harvest season than to test what is working for the blog, amirite?
Why this experiment?
Because a lot of my patients aren’t signed up for the newsletter and they’re missing out on a lot of exciting updates like this one. What am I so excited about? Scroll to find out!
Reverie Acupuncture is expanding!
I am super excited to announce that in addition to community acupuncture in the St Paul Health Foundations space I will be offering private services in the Naturally Well Collective in White Bear Lake, MN.
This means a few things:
Starting Saturday, November 2nd, private treatments will be available in the Naturally Well space!
These will include:
- diet therapy
- herbal therapy
- and, reiki
If you would like to get on the schedule click here!
I know that you’re all super excited about massage and I really want to offer it! However, there is a process I need to go through with the city of White Bear Lake that may take up to a month, so massage won’t be available immediately.
But the good news is that there is that the clerk thinks it’s a no-brainer and I just need to get my paperwork in order. Massage will happen at the Naturally Well location (99.9% sure).
Hooray! You don’t need to do anything. After almost two hours of figuring out the new Acusimple UI through trial and error I was able to successfully share your patient files with the “new” practice I had to create for the second location.
This means if you’re seeing me for a private moxa treatment, cupping treatment, herbal consult, reiki session, acupuncture, diet consult – whatever – you shouldn’t have to fill out any additional paperwork.
However, this does mean that the financial policy is being updated again. But this time it’s an update for the new services and their prices which will be listed on the services page.
There is also going to be a more explicit definition of “established patient.” An established patient is defined as:
A patient who has attended one (1) private intake appointment or three (3) community acupuncture appointments
If you are a community acupuncture patient from the Health Foundations space with fewer than three (3) community acupuncture appointments and you are wanting a private treatment, we will need to do an initial intake in order to appropriately discuss your history.
This has always been the Reverie Acupuncture definition of “established patient.” It’s just that up until this point it hasn’t been an issue.
Getting back to class
One of my favorite things about this space (besides the absolutely gorgeous fireplace in the community space) is that they have a dedicated room for teaching classes which includes a kitchen.
Food therapy classes anyone?
Even without doing food therapy classes (because they already have a fantastic functional nutritionist named Amber) this space allows me to do my seasonal living classes again. Squee!
They also have a weekly mom’s group on Tuesday mornings so you should definitely check it out if you’re on the north or east side of the cities.
A gift for you!
For my newsletter subscribers, I am offering a 15% discount for your first private service at the Naturally Well space. I will be sending this out this week and in the next newsletter but it is only good for one service. (If you want to save it until you know you can get a massage, I got you – the expiration is going to be December 31st, 2019 so you should have time.)
Not signed up for the newsletter? You can sign up here!
It’s the only place I offer discounts, you get first dibs on downloadables like e-books, infographics, and clinic updates.
And, to maintain the exclusivity of the newsletter, it is the only place I’m going to be discussing healthy habits, regular journal prompts, and more.
