** 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.

The group 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.

Community style vs Private style Treatments

 Although most patients come to community style clinics because of the low costs, private style acupuncture has its benefits, too.

With 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 and 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 down sessions.

In 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.

Private style 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.
