Welcome to the RedBird Community and our first blog post! If you have been treated at our clinic you know that we focus on providing gentle, effective community-style acupuncture in a beautiful tranquil space that many quickly appreciate as a respite from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. As I write this first post, I am reminded of our humble beginnings at our first location 403 Isleta (just down from the South Valley Economic Development Center), when we were simply called Community Acupuncture Clinic, which later changed to Bamboo Community Acupuncture Clinic. After a few years at that location, a sudden unexpected change (and blessing!) brought us to our current location, 1221 Isleta (directly across from the Westside Community Clinic)- yes, the home of the Annual Dia de Los Muertos/ Marigold Parade, one of my favorite celebrations of the year. It is a day I think about my journey to the Southwest, my Caribbean roots, and my motivations to be here in Albuquerque offering my training in Acupuncture to help as many people as I can with this incredible model of affordable healthcare!
As we come on 6 years of serving in Albuquerque's South Valley, I can celebrate with you that we have treated close to 500 patients and delivered thousands of treatments, one patient at a time, without alot of fanfare, just bringing relief one day at a time to those that find our clinic. Our new location has been a real blessing and we are growing into our new name, RedBird Community Acupuncture. New Location, New Name, More Healing, More Energy, and More Community. This motivates me to press forward and share more what we offer and how we can best serve the community. With that said, it's time to celebrate! So, here are some things we are cooking up for Fall 2018:
We have launched our On-Line Scheduler, so if you like to "Book Online" it is fast and simple!
We will be offering Specials to make it fun & easy to refer family and friends to try acupuncture!
We will be expanding available clinic appointment times so you can still get treated even on those busy days when "everybody gets the same idea"!
We will be launching an informational session on Shonishin Treatments for Children. This is a special Japanese-style treatment to address common conditions kids may have, with a no-needle technique that is very relaxing and effective. Great for asthma, common colds, digestive complaints, attention & focus, and much more.
So there you have it, our first blog post, not bad for an Acupunk (an acupuncturist who treats alot of patients community-style) who just enjoys needling patients. I hope this inspires you to check out our sweet healing space and give acupuncture a try. We are here to serve you. To all our established patients who support RedBird Community Acupuncture, thank you for trusting in us to deliver gentle affordable healthcare and holding a space for all to get better.
Blessings & wellness
