Appointment & Services



Dear Clients:

Hope you all are doing well!

As an essential business to support the needs of healthcare (Humboldt County SIP order section 9c), our clinic is now open again with modified hours.

Our Fortuna clinic current hours are 12:30-4:30pm on Mondays
Our Eureka clinic current hours are 10:00am – 2pm on Tuesdays and all day on Thursdays.

We are here to support any of your health care needs such as any pain or stress management, chronic illnesses, hospital declined care for mild symptoms of a cold or recovery care from a recent cold/virus. Please don’t self prescribe any immune boosting herbs if you are having any cold/virus symptoms.)  If you feel you are ill or unwell and have symptoms of fever, dry cough and difficulty breathing, you should call your primary doctor and get medical assistance and isolate yourself immediately.  If you are having a very active cold and cough, we still want to take care of you but we ask that you don’t come in for acupuncture treatments but have a distant herbal consultation and pick up herbs at curbside for receiving your care instead.

We are available for those who can’t come in for online herbal consultation and curbside herb pickup. Please email or text 7075994140 to schedule your online consultation. For a simple herbal refill by existing patients for existing conditions, we will waive any herbal consultation fee. For any new prescription and new condition, there is a $60 herbal online/phone consultation fee.

While we understand the significance of this virus and the impact of social distancing, we also appreciate how many of our patients rely on our care as essential. Therefore, we are taking every precaution to ensure your well-being during your visit  We have rigorous CDC informed sanitary protocols in place and are taking all counter measures to reduce the spread of any infections including social distancing in the clinic. Please know as a continuous precaution until the situation is completely clear, we will be diligently washing our hands, energy cleansing our healing space, sanitizing all surfaces and door knobs and also using soft table paper on treatment tables for your safety.  Most of the time you will be directly led to your treatment room without any physical contact with other clients and we try to open and close the treatment room doors for you so you don’t need to touch those door knobs. We ask that patients limit the number of people they bring in with them to their appointments and also keep distance from each other while waiting for your appointment. If you are able to come to your appointment by yourself, please do so, otherwise please limit additional guests to only necessary caregivers. We are also asking that all patients take their temperature at home prior to coming to their appointment. When visiting any of our locations, it is required to come in with your mask (ok to take off when you are in room by yourself), wash your hands and/or use our hand sanitizers once entering the clinic. Please feel free to ask for assistance when you arrive.

FYI Jane App: We have disabled the patient online self booking function temporarily for all acupuncture appointments until we are settled back to clinic for better coordination and management of our schedules at the moment. You can still cancel your appointments online yourself but you will need to text or call us at 707-599-4140 or email us at to reschedule or book a new appointment. Please indicate the date and preferred range of time for your desired appointment.

Thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you in clinic!
