Community acupuncture is a nationwide movement to create access to acupuncture by removing the barrier of cost from healing. Community Acupuncture clinics offer treatment in a group setting and charge on a sliding scale format ($20-50).
We use points on the scalp and below the elbows and knees to treat the entire body, so there’s no need to undress – just remove your shoes and roll up your pants and sleeves. And yes, we can even address your back pain by treating your wrists and ankles.
You may be surrounded by other people quietly receiving treatment at the same time. Patients benefit many ways from the community setting. In our busy society, it is not often we stop and take time to relax while surrounded by our peers. This is not a lack of privacy but an opportunity to experience treatment with family, friends and community. As with any intentional group endeavor, the shared state makes individual treatments more powerful.
Dragon Rising Chinese Medicine is pleased to offer Community Acupuncture at our Fair Oaks location. Comfortable, zero gravity lounge chairs are used and anywhere from 1-6 people can be seen at the same time, in the same room. You can make an appointment or just drop in, but appointments are recommended.
