Community Acupuncture

Every Friday 2pm-4pm

+ What is Community Acupuncture?

In this setting we provide a calm, relaxing environment where patients receive acupuncture in small groups, either seated or lying down on yoga mat with a yoga bolster and blanket. This group setting creates a dynamic healing “community” within the clinic, resulting in collective shared energy that can enhance the power of each individual’s treatment. With multiple participants receiving at the same time fees can be lower and acupuncture can be accessible to a greater number of people.

+ Will acupuncture hurt?

Most people feel very little or no pain at all. Sometimes there is a pin-prick sensation for the first few seconds after needle insertion, but then it goes away. More typically, people who receive acupuncture find it is not only clinically effective but also generally relaxing and calming. Many people feel more energized and have a stronger sense of well being during and after an acupuncture treatment. Compared to an injection from a hypodermic needle the sensation of an acupuncture needle is negliable.If there is any discomfort at all, it’s usually mild and temporary.

+ What can acupuncture treat?

Because acupuncture is part of a comprehensive system of health care (Traditional East Asian Medicine), it can help almost any problem to some degree. That’s because it works by helping you access your own healing energy or your ‘inner pharmacy’.

Acupuncture is used by itself or often alongside other therapies to increase the overall efficacy of treatment, or to reduce undesirable side effects from pharmaceutical medications.

The World Health Organization, research from the National Institutes of Health and other peer reviewed studies, and a growing number of hospitals across the US recognize the efficacy of acupuncture for a wide range of health issues.
