Farewell, Dr. Matt!

August 12, 2020

Dear Body Logic Patrons,

We are formally announcing that Dr. Matt has chosen to move on with his career outside of Body Logic. His last day will be Friday, August 21, 2020.

We want to assure you that your health and wellness are of the utmost importance to us at Body Logic. Our staff will do their best to accommodate previously scheduled appointments. Dr. Scott and/or Dr. Amanda will take the time to review your health history and treatment plan to make this transition as smooth as possible.

In the case that your appointment needs to be rescheduled due to doctor availability, we will be in contact with you as soon as possible. We humbly ask for your patience during this time of transition in our office.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us. It is our goal to facilitate the continuity of treatment for Dr. Matt’s patients while Body Logic continues providing exemplary chiropractic care to the Virginia Beach community.

Please join us in wishing Dr. Matt well in his future endeavors!

Sincerely,

Dr. Amanda J. Meyers-Kuper

Owner/Chiropractor of Body Logic, PC

August 2020 at Body Logic

Welcome August!

Virginia Beach is in the middle of the summer season and we feel the heat!  Although there are many important aspects of health we should consider all the time, our biggest focus is hydration.  Water, water, water!  The body is 70% water… and when it’s hot, we lose that water quickly!  But simply pounding the water isn’t the way to go.  As we sweat, we lose minerals along with the water. These minerals include sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and more!  These minerals explain why sweat tastes salty!  We are literally seeping sodium from our pores as we sweat.

So you need to consider your health in its entirety.  How is your diet?  Are you getting enough vegetables in your diet to replenish those minerals?  Are you eating a highly inflammatory diet?  This includes fried foods, pizza, ice-cream, and candy.  Are you drinking a lot of alcohol?  Your hydration status is more than just the number of ounces of water you drink in the day.

What’s the solution for staying hydrated?  Be kind to your body during these hot months!  Eat a healthy diet that replenishes the nutrients the body needs and deserves.  Avoid the beer and pizza, bring on the water and the veggies.  We’ll be complaining about the cold soon enough!!

10% Off- Let’s keep the focus on Nutrition!

Doctors Out of the Office in August 2020

Dr. Amanda and Dr. Scott will be out of the office Friday, August 14th thru Wednesday, August 19th. They are planning to visit Dr. Amanda’s hometown in New York to spend time with family; safety permitting.  Dr. Matt will be in the office and patients as usual while they are away.  We encourage patients to schedule massages and/or see Dr. Matt to maintain continuity of care.  We are here to help you move better, feel better, and live better!

 

Upcoming Announcements!

Dr. Amanda has been hard at work behind the scenes to keep Body Logic available and safe during these uncertain times.  Although her time “in the office” has been limited, there have been countless hours spent researching and planning in order to make change possible.  There is no better time to work even harder than during a pandemic!  Stay-tuned for more!

Dr. Amanda will also be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the opening of Body Logic Massage & Chiropractic on September 1st!  The original Body Logic was owned and operated by Jim Browning from 2006 to 2010 when Dr. Amanda took ownership.  We started planning an exciting Anniversary Event in the spring… and the planning has been delayed to say the least.  But don’t worry, celebration is still in the air!  We look forward to many more years of helping the Virginia Beach community move better, feel better, and live better!

Massage Services On Hold. Chiropractic Still Available

To our beloved Body Logic patrons:

In compliance with the state of Virginia’s closure of non-essential businesses, including the massage industry, Body Logic has elected to stop providing massage services effective Wednesday, March 24, 2020.  The closure is expected to last until April 24th, pending any potential changes made by Governor Northam or the federal government.  We are sad that we won’t be able to provide the much needed stress relief and pain management that massage offers our clients and patients.  However, we respect the need to help slow the curve.  Please keep our amazing massage therapists in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.  They work hard and care deeply for our community; and to be told to stop helping people through their gifted hands is challenging.  We are keeping in close communication with them.  They send their well-wishes and prayers for health and safety to all of you.  You may have questions regarding how this impacts you…

I’m a Body Logic massage member.  What happens now?

We are grateful for our massage members and appreciate your loyalty to our office!  Some members are unable to redeem their March massages.  That massage will be waiting for you once the restriction is lifted.  Body Logic will not debit your account for the massage membership draft for April.  We will reevaluate whether or not we will draft in May based on further guidance by our government.

I have a massage gift certificate that is going to expire.  Can I still redeem it?

We will be “freezing” all gift certificates while massage services are unavailable.  The number of days that massage is unavailable will be added to your expiration date.  We want you to get your massage!

I had a massage in the last 2 weeks.  Should I be concerned?

We want to reassure you that Body Logic has taken precautions to prevent exposure to COVID-19 for both our staff and our clients/patients.  There has been no known exposure in our office at this time.  We are compliant with CDC regulations and have increased our sanitation practices above our normal high standards.

Body Logic remains open for chiropractic services.

We feel a commitment to our community and fellow health-care professionals to remain available for chiropractic services.  Did you know the #2 reason for scheduling a doctor’s appointment is low back pain, second only to the common cold?  Given the current health status of our country, we can help lighten the load of our emergency medical staff and family practitioners.  Please know that we are here for you!

If you are a patient, you may have questions regarding how this impacts you…

What sanitary precautions is Body Logic taking?

Body Logic’s office is professionally cleaned.  In addition, our staff is taking hourly sanitary precautions, following CDC guidelines, and limiting contact among patients and staff.  Please note: we are not utilizing personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks because we do not come in contact with bodily fluids.  Due to the worldwide shortage, we feel it is important that PPE is best used by our healthcare professionals coming in direct contact with the virus.

I fall under the high-risk category.  OR someone in my house falls under the high-risk category.  Should I still come to my appointment?

That is entirely up to you!  We are taking sanitary precautions noted above, but completely understand if you prefer to remain home to be safe.  We are making daily reminder calls to find out if you will be attending your scheduled appointment.  If you know in advance that you prefer to cancel or reschedule, please feel free to contact us first at 757-427-0355.

How can we help keep Body Logic safe?

The health and safety of our staff and clients/patients is of the utmost importance.  Here’s how you can help:

  • If you are exhibiting any signs of illness, particularly coughing, fever, or shortness of breath, please call and cancel/reschedule your appointment.
  • If someone in your home is exhibiting any signs of illness, we ask that you call and cancel/reschedule your appointment.
  • If someone comes with you to your appointment, please ask that person to wait in the vehicle while you are in your appointment to limit unnecessary exposure.
  • If you have small children that you must bring with you to your appointment, please limit the number of toys you bring from your home to 1/child.  We also ask that you bring sanitary items such as hand sanitizing wipes with you to help us save our supply for your fellow patients.
  • Please wait to enter the office until your appointment time to prevent unnecessary contact with other patients.

Are office hours changing?

Yes.  A big THANK YOU to everyone that responded to the survey sent over the weekend, we have been able to start planning with data.  Change is necessary to ensure the health and safety of our community as well as the financial state of Body Logic.  We are working to finalize office hours and staffing to become effective Monday, March 30, 2020.   Please be on the lookout for another announcement later this week!  Body Logic will be closed on Saturdays until massage services resume.

We thank you for your support and understanding as we adapt to the current circumstances in our community, city, state, country, and world.  For the most up-to-date information, please follow us on Facebook.
