Community Acupuncture provides the healing benefits of over 2,000 years of Chinese medicinal practices at a substantially reduced cost. Patients are seen in a group setting in a relaxing atmosphere. Community Acupuncture can be just as effective as one-on-one treatments with many patients experiencing additional healing benefits from the communal setting.
Both the World Health Organization and the National Institute of Health recognize acupuncture as a safe and effective way to treat a variety of conditions.
Some of the conditions that can be treated in Community Acupuncture are:
- Headaches and migraines
- Psychological disorders
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Symptoms of cancer treatment
- Allergies and asthma
- Cold and flu symptoms
- Sleep disturbances
- Autoimmune disorders
By inserting fine, disposable needles into specific points along the body’s energy pathways, or “meridians”, your practitioner will regulate the flow of qi, blood, and bodily fluids. Acupuncture needles are so thin that patients rarely feel them when they are inserted.
Patients should wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing so that sleeves and pant legs can be rolled up for needle placement. Patients will be asked to remove socks and shoes. Appointments are 45 minutes in length and scheduled every 15 minutes.
