    To ensure fairness for our practitioners and other clients, we ask for 24 hours advance notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.

    COVID-19 Update

    Pekoe is open ONLY for Essential Acupuncture Services!
    Massage therapy and yoga instruction is suspended until further notice. 
    Essential visits treat any non-emergency condition that is affecting quality of life enough to motivate you to seek support. Our goal is to support your health and take even just the tiniest bit of pressure off the medical system as it is responding to increased emergency needs. 

    Examples of essential visits: 
    • You’re so panicked that you’re blowing through your Xanax at record speed. 
    • You haven’t slept in four days, and you know that sleep is one of the best things for immunity! 
    • Your back pain is so severe that you’re about to engage in an illegal activity in order to procure a remedy. 
    • Your allergies are so severe that you’re worried about an opportunistic infection... and you didn’t even get to enjoy the cherry blossoms. (We have a poster!) 
    • Your regular treatments for symptoms from Crohn's are vital to keeping you out of the hospital. 

    **Essential does NOT mean life-threatening emergency. Please go to the emergency room in that case. 

    We are also offering 30-minute virtual appointments to provide support and self-care recommendations if you prefer not to come in person. You may book online or by contacting us.  To reduce the possibility of transmission of infection, Pekoe is sanitizing the clinic on regular intervals and in-between clients, as well as spraying down treatment rooms, wait areas, and bathrooms.
    Please stay home if you have fever or a cough. If you aren’t sure if you should come in, please contact us to evaluate if in-person treatment is appropriate, and discuss any necessary precautions.
