is Community Acupuncture?
Community acupuncture is the term we use to describe our affordable method of treating people in a multi-bed clinic. This method is practiced in China today and is rapidly developing across USA and UK. Community acupuncture uses mainly TCM acupuncture but also uses Korean Hand Acupuncture and Auricular acupuncture inclusive to the basic cost i.e. at no extra fee.
Most Complementary therapies can be too expensive for the majority of people.
This is usually because they are conducted on a one-to-one basis, taking up to an hour of the practitioners time. High overhead costs have to be passed to patient in high treatment charges.
Acupunture strives to make acupuncture affordable for you to come as often
and for as long as needed.
This is achieved by practitioners treating several patients together in a large single room with screen dividers for privacy. Consultation is always carried out in a separate, private room and private talking space is available if you require it at other times.
Acupuncture needles are then inserted for 20-40 minutes. The acupuncturists can move from patient to patient while the needles do their work. This allows us to reduce our overheads and pass this saving onto you. Therefore, the quality of treatment is not compromised, only the cost.
