Transitioning in a New World- Responsible RestartOhio Guidelines

We are open! I have some information to share with you as we transition to this new way of life and implement Ohio State mandates.  I hope I can support you in these difficult times.

Our door is always open, but for your protection, I would like you to text your name to (440) 420-5339.  You may also leave a voice mail.  This number is posted on the door.  I will text you back or call you as soon as your treatment room is ready.

Please arrive at your appointment time.  I do ask that you come alone, unless you need assistance to make it to your appointment.  When you arrive at the door, I will ask you a few health questions and take your temperature.  If you have a cough, fever, shortness of breath, diarrhea, new loss of smell or taste, please cancel your appointment and contact your primary care physician for assistance.  If you were exposed to someone on quarantine or suspected of having COVID-19, I also ask that you reschedule.  Please be symptom free for 14 days before rebooking your appointment.

I will ask you to wash your hands or to use hand sanitizer after we go into the treatment room and again before you leave.

Please limit the amount of personal items that you bring in to the office and keep them with you at all times.

For your protection, we will be wearing masks.  Additionally, all rooms are thoroughly cleaned according to CDC standards and all linens are changed between each patient.  The entire office has also been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized.

With our world being so unpredictable, I will not be selling packages going forward.  Of course, you may continue to use what treatments you have remaining.  After that, payments will be made at the time of each treatment.  I will not be charging a “COVID Service Fee” as many companies are doing to offset costs associated with the new state regulations.  Treatment costs will remain the same as the individual price of a treatment, when purchased in a package of three.

I hope that everyone stays healthy and well during this challenging time.  We’ll get through this together.  Can’t wait to see you again!

Foods to Eat to Help Depression

Many have heard the question posed what came first, the chicken or the egg? But how does that concept apply to depression? It’s well-known that when we’re depressed, our motivation and interest in maintaining a healthy and balanced diet subsides in the same way our energy does. Harvard Medical Students positioned that same question in relation to depression;
