We now have Community Acupuncture in 2 locations: Hampden & Remington. *Please check to be sure you are going to the correct location for your visit.*
Hampden Community Clinic
Remington Community Clinic
We’ve made it easy to relax with our Community Clinics. You will walk into the warm and inviting treatment space to a handful of quiet treatment “nooks.” After getting comfortable in your recliner, an acupuncturist will be by to get you started with treatment. Others will be resting nearby in their own comfortable reclining chair while their treatment is in progress.
PRIVACY IN AN OPEN STUDIO
Privacy and tranquility is easily accomplished with hushed voices and relaxing music streaming in. Clients remain fully dressed; we need only to reach your lower legs, arms, head and neck to be able to offer a full body-mind treatment.
One of our friendly and knowledgeable acupuncturists will sit with you for a few minutes to ask a few questions, learn of anything specific you’d like from your treatment and also to listen to your pulses (a traditional Chinese diagnostic technique) to determine the best route with your custom treatment. She will insert between 6-12 sterile hair-thin needles into various points on your legs, feet, arms, hands, ears or head.
Your treatments may last an hour or perhaps less. It can take between 20-45 minutes for a treatment to fully circulate. Patients describe feeling initially feel an active mind when the needles first go in; then they will often settle into a more relaxed mental state or even fall into a cat nap.
AFTER YOUR VISIT
Patients often report that they leave already feeling differently than they did when they first came in.
Patients walk out the door treatment feeling relaxed and recharged. Over time patients are able to report what changes they have noticed (often the treatments provide subtle changes in areas that may not have been the reason for coming – these “side effects” [improved sleep, reduced stress levels, improved immunity] are a welcome surprise).
The effectiveness of your treatments will increase with frequency. Your initial treatments will only “hold” for 24-72 hours; your next visit will carry you a bit further. We cluster visits in the beginning (1-2 visit per week is common for the first few weeks of treatment) so you can begin to see results sooner.
All visits to our Community Clinics are just $25. No fine print.
While we are not able to bill your insurance for visits to the community clinic, you may take a receipt for services (can we link to a pdf of the form?) to submit for reimbursement. If using your insurance is an option you’d like to take advantage of, you may consider treatment in our One-on-One Clinic. Enter your insurance information here for us to verify your benefits.
