Massage Updates, Holiday Hours and More!

Massage Pilot Program

Little Bird is piloting a new massage therapy program and applications are now live to apply. The pilot will target a specific therapeutic concern over the entirety of the program. It will consist of a 45 minute initial session and five 30 minute follow-up sessions over the course of eight weeks. Each session will be on a sliding scale of $30-$50. If the low end of the scale is cost prohibitive, please still apply and note that at the end of your application. You must be a current Little Bird patient and at least 18 years old to apply. 

Little Bird’s massage therapist, Adrienne Banks, will be running the program and providing the massage. The pilot will start at the beginning of December and applications are due by 11:00pm on Friday, November 22, 2019. You can click here to access the application and learn all of the pilot’s details. New Scale for 60 and 90 minute massages

We have created a sliding scale for our 60 and 90 minute massages. Beginning December 2019, the scale will be as follows:

  • 60 minute: $60-$80
  • 90 minute: $90-$110

Please note that we do not accept gratuity (tips) for massage services just like acupuncture. Here at LBCA we view massage therapy as any other health service you receive. If you would like to further support us and the LBCA community at large, pay more than the minimum on the sliding scale. That helps us continue to provide a sliding scale so others who cannot pay more than the minimum can still receive our services and we are still able to keep the clinic thriving.

December appointments are now available and there are even a few November slots left! To schedule an appointment click here:

Acupuncture When Sick?

It’s unfortunately that time of year when we are frequently asked the question, “Can I come in for treatment when I am sick?” While we love to help those suffering from the flu and colds, it is important that we keep the treatment room contagion-free to protect all of our Little Birds. That means if you are in the contagious stage of your illness you will need to stay home. We ask that you wait 24 hours after your fever breaks before coming in for treatment. Also, If you are coughing uncontrollably, vomiting or having diarrhea, please stay home and rest up. If you come in for treatment and are contagious, we regrettably will not bet able to treat you. We will be happy to help you recover once you are no longer contagious!    

Inclement Weather Policy

It’s crazy how the weather has been all over the place and threatening us recently with some wintery mix. Our policy for inclement weather is if the buses and Metro are not running, we will close Little Bird and will call and email everyone with an appointment to notify them of the closure. If you are ever concerned about being late or not making your appointment due to the weather, please give us a call to let us know!
