Please call your doctor if you have a dry cough, fever, or difficulty breathing, or call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room if any of those symptoms are severe.
During this unprecedented pandemic, acupuncture is still considered an essential medical service by both the Oregon and Washington Health Departments, and we treating to medical cases unrelated to Covid-19. This includes severe pain, mental distress, insomnia, digestive health and especially any treatment that will keep a patient from needing to go to the hospital outside of Covid-19 cases.
What to expect if you receive a treatment:
ME: I will be wearing a mask and gloves during the treatment, and either medical scrubs or freshly cleaned clothing that will be put on at the office. I will disinfect all surfaces that a patient or myself might come into contact with during the treatment, and implement good hand washing practices between patients. I am allowing extra time between treatments for adequate cleaning time, and to air out the room.
YOU: I will have you wait in your car, safely outside, or in the waiting area, as long as the recommended 6ft distance between yourself and others can be met. If it feels safer to wait outside of the waiting area, you will either call or text me at your appointment time and I will open the door to the office for you. (If you will be unable to call or text, we will work out another plan when you schedule.) I kindly request you wear a mask to your appointment.
**PLEASE check your temperature prior to coming in if you are able, and do not come in if you have, or suspect you have a fever. You will be asked to wash or sanitize your hands upon entering the office. Again, please do not come in if you have a fever, chills, dry cough, or any difficulty breathing, and instead, call your Primary Care Physician.
Since beginning her private practice in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine at the start of 2013, Grace Peters has achieved consistent success in helping patients reach their desired outcomes, both in treatment and with personal aspirations. It is equally important for her to set and reach her own goals, and she maintains dedicated practice and training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, long distance trail running, and both writing/performing as a live musician and composing for film. She is a strong advocate for inclusivity, equality, equanimity, and helping others do their best work.
Grace studied at Chapman University with undergraduate studies in Film & Television production before spending 8 years as a touring and recording musician in Southern California. Her desire to help others through the medical field was met with her decision to attend the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, Oregon, where she graduated with her Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAcOM) in 2012. She then attended a 5 week intensive externship in Nanjing, China, where she was able to work closely with doctors at the top of their field, learning invaluable techniques that she still uses with great success today.
