Down to Earth is moving again!
As of November 1, all treatments will be at 31 Harvard St. in Worcester.
After 9 years in my Stafford St location, and almost 5 years on James St before that, I certainly didn't intend to move twice within less than a year. What spurred my decision to move is the desire to have more time in my schedule to offer Hypnosis and Somatic mobility sessions.
I became a certified Somatics teacher last year, and a certified hypnotist this year, and I am enamored with the potential of both modalities. However, they require significant hands-on time and can't be fit within a community acupuncture session, which means that I had very limited availability in my schedule to offer these sessions.
Which brings me to the next big news: Starting in November, I will not be offering community acupuncture. All acupuncture treatments will be private. In an attempt to keep my prices reasonable, I will be offering both 30 and 45-minute sessions. The full menu of services and prices is listed below.
This means that all in-person appointments will be available for the entirety of each shift, allowing for many more options for Hypnosis, Somatics, Herbal Consults, and Facial Gua Sha appointments.
There are other benefits as well. I will be able to spend more time getting to know each patient, and we won't have to whisper!
The building is lovely, and it is dedicated to wellness! Named The Worcester Center for Mindful Living, the tenants include a massage therapist, kid's yoga instructor, and light therapy provider. As the building grows, so will the resources available.
The building is easy to access, and my room is on the first floor and is just a short walk from the entrance. There is also a dedicated waiting area, as well as a "quiet room" for your use (I'll post pictures soon on Facebook).
Best of all, there is lots of easy parking close to the building! There is a large free lot to the left of the building. In the (very rare) case that the lot is full, there is plenty of street parking on both sides of the street (pay for street parking via the Passport app).
I'm very excited about this new chapter, and I hope you are, too! I'm sure that with all these changes, some things may need to be adjusted as we go along. Please bear with me and send me good energy for a smooth transition.
A couple of other notes:
- All sessions will be BYOBM... Bring Your Own Blanket and Music. There has been a trend of folks wanting to listen to their own music/meditation/podcasts during treatment, so I will be offering a white noise machine with nature sounds, and you can bring your own tunes if you want them. Of course, you are also welcome to bring in extra pillows, an eye mask, teddy bear, etc. to make yourself comfortable during the treatment.
- If you already had an appointment scheduled for November, I will be in touch about your options.
- If you have a prepaid card, the balance can be used at the new office rates.
