The concept of a community-style clinic is to promote accessibility by creating more affordable acupuncture. Community acupuncture is practiced in a group, rather than one-on-one setting. The treatments primarily use distal points on the arms and legs, allowing patients to remain clothed. Patients are treated in zero gravity chairs in an open room with dividers which provides a semi-private setting.
Community Acupuncture is offered on a walk-in basis Monday-Friday
