Acupuncture is an age-old Chinese healing modality that continues to prove it's efficacy, in these modern times. Our licensed practitioners use tiny, sterile, disposable needles, inserted superficially into specific areas of the body, to stimulate the body's ability to heal itself. Most people feel sleepy or very relaxed once they are needled and we encourage you to surrender to that feeling. Why not use this time to allow the body and mind to rest? After 30-60 minutes the needles are removed. Most people leave feeling better and sometimes feel the positive effects for days after. This powerful tool for healing and health maintenance, is made more accessible through low-cost community acupuncture programs like ours. By sharing the space with other community members, we lower the cost and ALL benefit from the healing nexus that is generated among us.
Each of our skilled acupuncturists have over five years in practice and experience with a wide range of health conditions. They are hand-picked for their knowledge, sensitivity and commitment to their craft. They will take great care of you.
Meet our exceptional community-partner acupuncturists:
Q: Does acupuncture HURT?
A: Despite popular belief, it's a relatively painless process. Some points are more sensitive than others, but any pain resulting from insertion of the needle should resolve within a couple of seconds. If it doesn't just inform your therapist and an adjustment can be made.
Q: Do I have to take off my clothes?
A: No. We don't remove any clothing for C.A. so we recommend that you wear clothing that provides access to your arms and legs up to the knees.
Q: Will I be able to go on with regular activities post-treatment?
A: Some people like to take it easy after acupuncture and you might feel like napping. Others are energized and keep it moving. If it's your first time, consider allowing yourself a little grace after to observe and honor how you feel.
Q: How often should I come for treatment?
A: Since you can't overdose on acupuncture, come as often as you like! A person in a healing crisis, will need acupuncture more frequently than someone who is coming for health maintenance. Discuss this further with your therapist.
Q: Can children receive acupuncture? What age is appropriate?
A: Absolutely! Acupuncture can safely be performed on children of all ages. The only requirement is that they are able to be still and not interfere with the placement of needles.
Q: It's my first time and I'm nervous, may I bring someone for support?
A: Absolutely! Community acupuncture means the more the merrier. Why not BOTH be treated? We can put you in chairs next to each other and you can share in the healing.
