Dear Patients,

We have been getting a lot of calls from concerned patients and general enquiries.

We operate under the current hygienic guidelines as provided by the local health inspector. The Gesundheitsamt Frankfurt is the local health authority for all doctors and Heilpraktiker in Frankfurt.

In addition, we use an ozone generator / air cleaning device after business hours to clean the treatment rooms. And we also wipe intermittently all doorhandles and some of the heavily used / touch areas (table edge) etc with desinfection wipes.

We also have mouth masks & gloves and if desired the patients can request us and them to wear those during treatment anytime.

We as practitioners follow the same rules as those provided to the general public with respect to self-isolation, contacting a (general) doctor for further assesment and seeking medical treatment in case of a suspected infection with the Corona Virus (SARS-CoV-2).

We will notify patients with pending appointments and all patients, who have visited our premises after 1.1.2020 via e-mail or phone of any notifications from our local health authority (pertaining to the operation of the acupuncture clinic in our premises or patient safety).

Thank you for your trust and for keep coming to our practice with your health concerns.
