Community acupuncture makes use of powerful reaction areas from the elbow to the hand and from the knees to the feet. Local needling or needling in the site of trauma/injury can be very effective but it can also cause soreness that delay further treatments. Acupuncture works best when it is administered frequently to maintain the healing response generated by the needle stimulation(read more under “Conditions Treated” section). In short, we use proven distal(areas at the end of your arms and legs) systems because it gives you the best chance at quick and lasting improvement.
Using these proven systems also allows the patient to remain clothed allowing for a supportive group atmosphere where everyone is treated together. Music and other background noise allow your conversation to remain surprisingly private with the practitioner during the intake and subsequent sessions. The group setting is perfect for friends, family, and friends in acupuncture to come together and be well.
Our community goes beyond the walls of our clinic. We work with a community of like minded professionals that are available to you. As our health improves we start to more easily envision our potential. Maybe Yoga is your next step, guided meditation, or talk therapy. Whatever it is we either know someone or are working on knowing someone who can help you take that next step.
