What is community acupuncture?
Community acupuncture means multiple people receive acupuncture at the same time and pay on a sliding-scale basis. Treatments take place in a relaxed setting while the patient is fully clothed. Because more people can be seen, we can charge less. People of all income levels can access treatment. Increased affordability also allows for more frequent visits, resulting better, longer-lasting therapeutic results.
