I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season, however and whatever you celebrate! ✨

To me, the very best part of this season is the solstice, when the daylight hours start getting longer once again. Hallelujah!

Can’t happen fast enough, IMO. Winter has officially barely begun and I’m ready for it to be over already. LOL. 🤣 How about you?

In the spirit of holiday celebrations, I wanted to share some good news with you!

Expanded Clinic Hours

Due to increasing demand for my holistic health services (thank you!), I am expanding my clinic hours, and will be available for both acupuncture-wellness sessions and telehealth consultations for 4 full days each week. Yippee!

welcome we're open

My newly expanded schedule starting in January will be: Tuesday through Friday, 10am to 6pm

Note: I will also make myself available for occasional 9:00am appointments, if needed, so if that’s the only time that works for you, let me know!

To schedule, see below re online scheduling, or use the following contact form, or give the clinic a call at 505.490.6370.

Answering Service

Speaking of calling the clinic, if you did that anytime in the last few months, you discovered that that wasn’t the best way to get a hold of us…

That has now been remedied! We are reactivating our answering service, and will have someone answering the phones and taking messages 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, starting in mid-January.

So if the phone is your jam, feel free to reach out that way going forward, to 505.490.6370. 😊

Online Scheduling

A few months ago, I reactivated online scheduling for consultations, and lots of you have made use of that convenience.

If you haven’t taken advantage of it yet, check it out here: https://calendly.com/dremilyfranklin


And soon, online scheduling will also be available for acupuncture-wellness sessions again – stay tuned for that announcement! (It was available for a short time, but due to a glitch, had to be deactivated until that can be fixed, which should happen soon).

In the meantime, if you’d like to schedule an acupuncture-wellness session, send us a message here.

Taking New Patients

And in case you hadn’t heard, for the first time since before the start of the pandemic, I am now taking new patients again. Woohoo! So please, spread the word, and let your friends, family, coworkers and neighbors know – Dr. Emily is available! 😀

The first step for someone wanting to become a new patient is to book a free Initial Inquiry phone call with me, here.

If you know someone who might be interested, forward this link to them: https://calendly.com/dremilyfranklin/initial-inquiry-phone

Accepting Insurance

There’s been a lot of changes in the health insurance world over the past couple of years, and for a while there, I struggled to figure out how to do my work in my unique, holistic way and still get paid by insurance. I had to stop taking insurance for a while, until I sorted things out.

Happily, with perseverance and a lot of experimentation, I have now figured out how to successfully navigate those changes! 🤞

So I am once again accepting most Blue Cross Blue Shield plans, and most United Healthcare insurance plans as well.

So if you have hesitated to make appointments due to my not taking insurance, rejoice! And get back on my schedule. 😊

New Cookbook

After many months of sorting and editing recipes, designing the layout and content, and choosing and editing images, I have finally completed my first cookbook! Hooray!

It’s called Dr Emily’s Detox Cookbook, and contains over 100 easy, satisfying & deliciously detoxifying recipes, including:

  • Beverages
  • Small Bites
  • Breakfast
  • Main Dishes
  • Sides
  • Sauces
  • Dessert

Have you done my 10-Day Detox yet? Or are you planning to do it? If so, you’ll want to get this cookbook for when you do the detox (and hey! my 10 Day Detox is perfect as a new years reset!)

And while my new detox cookbook is primarily designed to facilitate and enhance your experience of doing my 10-Day Detox, it can also be used all on its own as a way for you to help boost your body’s own natural detox processes, one beverage, snack, or meal at a time.

And right now, for a limited time, as an introductory special for the holidays, it’s on sale for only $9.95. That’s 33% off the normal price of $14.95.

Check it out today, and start your new year off right!

And Finally

One last announcement – I will be switching up my posting and email newsletter schedule in the new year, so be on the lookout for some changes there, and let me know what you think in the comments section below this post, or via Facebook or Instagram! I’d love your feedback.
