Community-style acupuncture is the practice of treating multiple patients together in a large room. For acupuncture to be most effective patients need to receive it frequently and regularly. We want you to come often enough to get healthy and stay healthy which can be easier to do when cost is not an issue.
Community acupuncture has many benefits: it’s easy for friends and family members to come for treatment together; many patients find it comforting; and a collective energetic field becomes established which actually makes individual treatments more powerful.
The community acupuncture setting is quiet and peaceful, with treatment spaces positioned to allow for a sense of privacy. Because you will be receiving treatment alongside other people, you will remain fully clothed and our licensed acupuncturist will insert needles only in places easy to access––arms, hands, lower legs, feet, head and neck. These points are no different than those used in a private setting.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing that is easy to roll up over your elbows and knees. You will be asked to remove your shoes and socks.
While there will be other people in the room with you, there is soft music and soothing ocean sounds creating a calm and relaxing environment.
Once the needles are in, you can relax for as long as you like––anywhere from 30 minutes to three hours – unless your space is needed for someone else! We won’t disturb you while you rest. And when you are ready to go, simply start moving around, maybe give us a wave (please don't get up with needles in!!) and we’ll remove the needles before you leave.
Please see the Community Clinic tab for additional information, new patient guidance and to schedule.
Private treatments are offered by appointment.
