Acupuncture

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is used to treat a variety of ailments and conditions.  Treatment involves insertion of very fine sterile needles into the skin at specific points on the body to achieve a therapeutic effect.  Needles are inserted in points located on a network of pathways connected to the function of internal organs, with the goal of restoring and maintaining balance.  It is also used to effectively treat injuries and help with pain management.  

Community Acupuncture

Community acupuncture is the practice of treating patients together in a larger room as opposed to a private setting. The community acupuncture model mirrors how acupuncture has been traditionally practiced. Many clinics across the country, including ours, are starting to adopt this model again because of its many benefits.

Accessibility: Our community treatments operate on a sliding scale and paying what you can afford allows you to receive the treatments you need more regularly.

Collective healing: feel the energy field of those around you amplify your path to wellness.

Community feel: escape the isolation that pain and illness can bring by healing with your community in a safe space. 

10% of proceeds from community acupuncture will be donated to a local charity.
