Community Acupuncture is a more affordable and more effective type of acupuncture.
Instead of having people in individual rooms, we treat in a community setting. Many people find it comforting. It is more effective because of the healing energy as a group.
We practice a more traditional and more effective style of acupuncture that relies on tongue and pulse diagnosis. We use acupuncture points on the acupuncture channels that you have the pain.
Acupuncture is a PROCESS. You do not just take one pill and expect to get better. In China, a typical treatment protocol for a Chronic condition can be acupuncture 2-3 times a week for 2-3 months! Most of our patients do not need that much acupuncture. But virtually everyone requires a course of treatment, rather a single one. Because community acupuncture is more affordable and people can actually get the number of treatments they need we have found it to be more effective.
Although we work in a community space, as medical professionals we will always adhere to standards of patient confidentiality, and have found our patients are also extremely respectful. While we love seeing our patients out in the community, we will continue to respect your confidentiality and any social interaction will be purely up to you. Please turn off your phone and whisper in the community room. We have ear plugs available, please ask Jade.
