Community Clinic

What is a community acupuncture clinic?

community-clinicThis is a place where you can have access to acupuncture at a very affordable rate, which enables you to come as often as needed. The treatments are mostly symptom-based, meaning that we treat the headache, digestive imbalance, shoulder, back or knee pain that you experience. We do not do extensive personal medical history. For more complex and multi-faceted diseases or to understand the problem at a deeper level, I recommend personal consultations at least initially.


What is the difference between a Personal Acupuncture Session & Community Clinic Treatment?

Typically, an initial personal acupuncture session begins with a thorough health assessment that includes pulse, tongue reading and discussion of particular needs and concerns unless an emergency such as a migraine headache requires immediate action! Words are then best kept for later!

In a community acupuncture clinic, the treatment is more likely to be geared toward the immediate symptoms and will not focus on the medical history and long term treatment. It is ideal for many types of body pain and immediate relief and less appropriate for more complex treatments and difficult diseases. During the treatment you lie comfortably on a massage table. Acupuncture points are chosen according to specific needs and symptoms.
