Imagine a pill that could cure many illnesses, could make almost every condition better to a greater or lesser extent, was extremely safe, had no negative side effects whatsoever, was not addictive, and made even healthy people feel even better. What if this pill could reduce or eliminate pain anywhere in the body, help a person lose weight or quit smoking, regulate a woman's menstrual cycle, help with sleep problems. This would be hailed as a miracle. This is what acupuncture does.

We provide acupuncture in a community style. This means that patients are treated in an open room, rather than in private treatment rooms and on recliners rather than on massage tables as is more common in the United States.
Community acupuncture is not a different kind of acupuncture. Rather it is a business model for operating a clinic in a way that permits the fee to be as low as possible. Most private acupuncture treatments are $75 to $150, and the acupuncturist can usually only see one or two patients per hour. But when the clinic is set up in such a way as to allow the acupuncturist to see six or more patients per hour, then the fee can be set much lower and make acupuncture accessible to a much larger population.
This allows the acupuncturist to see more patients in the same amount of time and thereby keep the fees lower. Patients can stay as long as they like (many rest with needs for an hour or more). The lower fee allows patients to receive treatment more frequently. The combination of longer needle time and more frequent treatments greatly improves results.
