Community Acupuncture- No longer available at this time.

Community acupuncture is a nationwide movement to create access to acupuncture by removing the barrier of cost from healing.
Acupuncture points on the scalp and below the elbows and knees are used to treat the entire body, so there’s no need to undress – just remove your shoes and roll up your pants and sleeves. And yes, we can even address your back pain by treating your wrists.

You will be surrounded by other people quietly receiving treatment at the same time. Patients benefit in many ways from the community setting. In our busy society, it is not often we stop and take time to relax while surrounded by our peers. This is not a lack of privacy but an opportunity to experience treatment with family, friends, and community. As with any intentional group endeavor, the shared state makes individual treatments more powerful. Here, the patients create the healing atmosphere as much as the practitioner. The room is quiet, and hushed voices are used but confidentiality is still maintained and most people find relaxing with others quite soothing.

Pricing here is based on a sliding scale. This scale is based solely on what YOU want to pay. We will never question your income, this is designed to give you freedom to pay what you can on any given day. Some patients may require lengthy treatment plans, others may only need a few visits. The idea is to make it affordable for you to get the care you need & want.

We offer two formats for treatment:

Our one-to-one acupuncture format is on a sliding scale: $55 – $75. Held in private room.

Our community acupuncture format is on a sliding scale: $20 – $40. Held in group room.

The difference between these options:

1. With a one on on session the intake will be more in depth and you will have complete privacy. Other modalities may be used such as Cupping, Moxa, or Guasha.

2.In the group setting only needles will be used. You can rest comfortably amongst others. Many people love to make time to come in with their partner, friend, or family member.
