About a year and a half ago, we moved my acupuncture practice, FLOAT: Chinese Medical Arts (which I started in early 2007), to a modern medical office building in downtown Glendale. The 1960’s building we used to occupy was going to be demolished to make room for luxury condos, and I, along with all of the other physician tenants, was given 6 weeks to find a new clinic. At the time, my kids were 1.5 and 3.5 years old. Finding a new space felt like finding out I was suddenly 8 months pregnant with a third child. Thankfully, my associate acupuncturist Jacqueline has a spidy sense for commercial real estate, and she found our new place within a week. I signed a three-year lease.
It ended up being a blessing in disguise: our current clinic is twice as big, super clean, and has plenty of room for my staff as well as the extra family members our patients often bring with them.
Our third floor office has a beautiful view of Griffith Park, super comfortable and quiet treatment rooms, lots of free parking, and an elevator.
Some of our patients hang out in the waiting room after their treatment just to read the magazines, sip tea and listen to the Chinese fountain.
We even have toys and crayons for the kids! Babies don’t wanna leave.
Have I mentioned how much I love my work?
We are in the midst of a major website overhaul to our clinic website, but before it launches, I wanted to share with you these beautiful photographs taken by my brother Samuel Morgan, who is a professional architectural photographer. I feel so lucky to have had him shoot photos of my 1st baby (I incorporated before I became a mom): FLOAT: Chinese Medical Arts! Thanks, little bro.
