What is Community Acupuncture?
Community style acupuncture is performed in a group setting where patients are treated in a relaxed environment. During these times patients are able to rest peacefully in a reclining chair and receive acupuncture for a reduced fee. In this setting, there is no need to undress as treatments are completed using acupuncture points only on the arms, legs, and head. Having multiple chairs available allows you to stay as long or as short as you would like while receiving acupuncture; as little as 15 minutes up to an hour or more. The average time is 20-25 minutes. You’ll learn when you feel “Done” as your body will become more alert and awake, then the needles can be removed at that time. You can also bring friends or family members to experience acupuncture with you.
