PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SAFETY PROTOCOLS/PROCEDURES

AS THEY APPLY TO ALL OF OUR SERVICES 

CHANGES YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

We want to fill you in on all the important details, so you can be prepared for your next visit. We are living in a different world, so we have adapted to ensure the safety of our employees and our beloved patients. Below, please find information about what we are doing and what is expected of you. Please read thoroughly, and as always, if you have any questions, feel free to give us a call.

  • We will be asking a few more questions when you call to book your appointment. We will be asking you about your current state of health, and any symptoms you might be experiencing. If you are feeling ill we ask that you please not schedule a visit with us until you have recovered.

  • We will be asking about payment methods prior to your visit, so that you do not have to stop at our desk to take care of any payments. Patients paying by cash or check can put their payment into our drop box when entering the office.

  • You will be expected to wear a mask. You will also be expected, upon entry,  to sanitize your hands in our vestibule with our new touchless hand sanitizer station.

  • We will be taking your temperature. We have a wand that we will swipe near your forehead. Easy peasy!

  • There will be a new way of checking in & out for your visit. When you arrive, you will text us so we know you are ready for your visit. We will text you when your room is ready so that you can come in, sanitize, get your temp taken, and go directly to your room. If you cannot text, other arrangements will be made in advance of your visit.

  •  If you need refills of supplements or herbs, they will be left in a bag, which you can grab on your way out. It is preferred that you give us notice of anything that you will be needing prior to your visit.

  • You will NOT have to stop at the desk for anything. Appointments will be made over the phone, or by text or via email. Online booking is CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE.

SAFETY UPGRADES

  • Practitioners will be seeing less patients on their newly modified schedules. We are doing this to lessen the chance of germ exposure and ensure that our treatment rooms can be properly sanitized.

  • There will be no interaction with anyone besides staff while in the building. It is important to know that it is not business as usual.There will be no one in the building aside from staff and scheduled patients.

  • We have decluttered and deep cleaned the office.  A plexiglass barrier at our front desk will be getting installed in the coming week.

  • UV light sterilizers have been installed in each of our treatment rooms. Each room will be getting a 30 minute UV sanitation after each patient leaves.

  • Touchless hand sanitizer stations are in every treatment room and in our vestibule upon entering. 

  • The treatment beds in each room will no longer have sheets on them. In order to keep the amazing healing powers of our therapeutic BioMats, they are now covered in a sanitizable bed protector. This enables us to keep the germs away, but allows for the comfort of the heat and for the healing powers of amethyst crystals to still work their magic.

  • There is an air purifier in each treatment room to help in reducing the amount of airborne germs.

  • Per New York State guidelines, our Business Safety Plan is completed and available upon request.

March 21, 2020

To our wonderful community, it is with careful consideration that we have made the difficult decision to close Pellegrino Healing Center temporarily, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we took every precaution to ensure a healthy, sanitized, and supportive environment during this uncertain time, until the spread of this virus is under control, we feel it is in the best interest of our patients, as well as the staff of Pellegrino Healing Center, to close our doors temporarily. We are confident that this is the next best step for the public health of you, your families and the wider community and in helping to "flatten the curve" for our amazing healthcare workers.

 

We would like to help you stay healthy, or, if you have symptoms, recover quickly. You can call/text 845-233-5672 or email us at heal@pellegrinohealingcenter.com to set up "curbside pickup" of herbs and supplements, or to arrange for these items to be sent directly to your house. These herbs and supplements would be targeted to either ease your symptoms or give your immune system a boost. For items being picked up, we have a drop box outside of our building. Please call us for more details. 

 

We have added online consultations (tele-medicine) to our services to help support you during this time. You can now book a virtual visit with Christine Pellegrino MS, L.Ac. She will help you by providing recommendations for herbs, supplements, essential oils, and CBD products, as well as instruction on self help techniques and lifestyle changes that can be made to help you get through this time at home. We will then have your items shipped directly to your door. Or, if you prefer, you can pick it up at our socially distant "curbside" drop box located outside of our main entrance. To schedule, you can call or text us at 845-233-5672 or, email us at heal@pellegrinohealingcenter.com

WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER

 

This is a challenging time for each and every one of us on this planet right now. Even though our doors are closed, we are still here to support you. We are all connected, and we can offer each other help, support, and companionship during this difficult time. Please feel free to call, text, email or message us. Please follow us on our social media sites, facebook and instagram, as to stay informed. 

 

Thank you for your support, patience and understanding at this time. All of us here at Pellegrino Healing Center truly hope that you and your loved ones stay healthy and safe. We will see you on the other side of this, and at that time we will work diligently to get you back on track and continue the important work of helping you on your healing journey.

In addition to continually upholding our high standards of cleanliness, maintenance, and sanitation at our practice, we’ve implemented temporary enhanced cleaning procedures and protocols:

  • Access to hand sanitizers in all public areas of the office such as waiting areas, bathrooms, and treatment rooms.

  • All contact surfaces in public areas and restrooms are sanitized regularly every day.

  • All contact surfaces in treatment rooms are sanitized prior to the next patient’s visit.

  • Our employees are receiving education on personal hygiene and general protocols for reducing the risk of infection.

Please refer to the New York State Department of Health website for the latest information and advice on the COVID-19 virus in New York State.

We are monitoring the situation closely and will reassess our response as needed.

We do ask that if you are showing signs or symptoms of illness to please reschedule your appointment until you are recovered. It is for the safety and well being of our patients and staff members. 

At this time, we have postponed all trips and seminars until further notice, as a precautionary measure for your safety. 

We would like to remind our patients of the services and products we offer to help support your immune system:

  • Acupuncture can help boost your immunity. Scientific research shows that acupuncture increases the number of white blood cells in the body and moderates the immune system allowing it to react swiftly and strongly to threats.

  • Salt therapy sessions in our Himalayan Salt Cave can help cleanse and detoxify your lungs, as well as helping to relieve stress, reduce inflammation, lessen mucus production and more. Check out our Salt Cave Special Offer.

  • Infrared saunas can help boost the immune system as well. Consistent sessions in our infrared sauna can raise core body temperature, helping to keep the immune system strong and in good working order. It also helps to draw toxins out of the body. ⠀

  • We are also offering our STAY HEALTHY immune support bundle as a Special.  It includes 3 immune support supplements and 2 essential oil blends to help boost and support your immune system. Click here to learn more about it.
