While most Acupuncturists see one patient per hour at an average of $65-$175 per treatment, the Community Acupuncture model is where the Acupuncturist sees several patients per hour in a common area. This format allows us to treat our patients at a much more affordable rate while still providing optimal services. It also allows you to come in with your family or friends and receive treatments together.
The Community Acupuncture Movement was created by several acupuncturists in Portland, Oregon at a clinic called Working Class Acupuncture as a creative response to the economic inaccessibility of health care in the United States.
We use sterile, one-time use needles that are so thin you barely feel them. You will rest with the needles for around 30 minutes. Often you will feel very relaxed, even euphoric. It is best to take it easy for the next couple hours after a treatment. Depending on what you are being treated for and how long you have had the condition, we will recommend follow-up visits.
Note: during Covid, there will be a maximum of 2 patients in the community room. Masks are required.
