** THIS SERVICE IS ON HOLD AT THIS TIME **
As part of our way of giving back to the community, we are offering a community
style acupuncture for all existing patients every Sunday. (Please
note: New patients must first make their "Initial Visit" appointment
before being eligible to attend this type of community service)
Community supported acupuncture is an alternative model of practice that allows for
low cost treatments to our patients in need. One of the
greatest benefits of visiting a community acupuncture clinic is the cost. The
idea behind the community clinic movement is that acupuncture should be
accessible to as many people as possible. Up to 6 patients (per hour) are treated in a common room
in comfortable reclining chairs. With cost being only one factor, patients are able to get treatments more frequently, which is
often required to achieve better results.
atmosphere is also cited as a benefit. Friends and family members can be
treated at the same time in the same room. In addition, community style
acupuncture clinics are easily set up in crisis situations. Acupuncturists were
on hand to treat rescue workers after 9/11, New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina, and the
earthquake in Haiti etc. This is only possible in a community style set-up.
Although most patients come to community style clinics because of the low costs, private style acupuncture
has its benefits, too.
private room acupuncture, the range of acupuncture points that can be
used during a private treatment is greater (including those on the back,
upper legs, and abdomen)
when a patient is in a private room. More time is spent on the intake
treatment overall, making it a more thorough type of treatment.
In fact, many
patients prefer being treated on a table that can support both face up and face
addition to the extra time and attention, accessory
treatments (such as cupping, body work, moxabustion, acutonics sound
healing, scalp acupuncture, herbal formula preparations etc.) can be used to
augment a private treatment.
acupuncture can also be better suited to patients with ailments that need more detailed
attention, & for patients with spiritual/emotional conditions etc., as the setting allows them
to disclose personal information more freely.
