We at Ascend Performance Institute are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation, both worldwide, nationally and specific to Arizona.  In light of the most recent CDC updates, our clinic guidelines are now as follows:

Effective immediately, masks are recommended but optional for fully-vaccinated individuals.  For individuals who are not vaccinated, masks are required.  At this time, our team members will continue to wear masks at the request of their clients and as needed.

This pandemic has affected everyone differently, and there are varying levels of security standards for each individual. We ask that you understand our need to honor what makes all of our clients comfortable.

We at API appreciate your continued support as we navigate uncharted waters.  If you are a new patient and have questions about our services in light of COVID-19, please feel free to contact the office directly.
