What is community acupuncture?
Community acupuncture is a true reflection of how the medicine is practiced in China. A main goal of community acupuncture is to offer even more affordable acupuncture, making it more accessible to the broader community. At Lakeland Acupuncturist, our fee is a sliding scale of $25-$45 per follow-up treatment. Because practitioners are paid a portion of the service fee collected, we ask patients to select the price point that works best for them while at the same time appropriately awards the acupuncturist providing excellent care.
Our community acupuncture space allows up to 4-6 people to be treated together. For patients being treated the communal space offers an atmosphere of healing, in addition to providing an opportunity to connect with others.
We encourage our community acupuncture patrons to bring their own devices to make the healing session work best for them. While the space will be fairly quiet, there may be some discussion taking place between other patients and the practitioner at times. Therefore, ear buds with music are encouraged along with ear plugs and/or eye pillows. These are not provided by our clinic- patients should bring their own. Additionally, comfortable clothing should be worn to the session as tight fitting clothing will make some areas prohibitive to treatment.
To schedule a community acupuncture session email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 810-512-2957. Appointments for this service will be available beginning July 10th, 2017.
What if someone wants acupuncture, but doesn’t want the community model?
Lakeland Acupuncturist offers both community acupuncture sessions and private room, one-on-one acupuncture sessions. We offer both treatment modalities to give our patients the option to receive acupuncture in a way that works best for them.
