Acupuncture, a 2000 year old Chinese Healing Art, has seen an increasingly popular movement towards treatment in a group or “community” setting. Because the treatments are given in a common room, it is a more affordable option for many people. Acupuncture works best and patients have the best results when acupuncture is regular and frequent. The lower price of community acupuncture allows people to get treatments more often! Some people also take comfort in not being alone in a room, and having the acupuncturist close by. Also, if desired, you may come with a friend or family member and be treated together. Like other intentional group endeavors such as yoga and meditation, when you do something with other people, it raises the energy for everyone. The same is true with acupuncture: receiving treatment in a room with others raises the energy and healing is enhanced.
