I am also a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York City and certified as a Holistic Health Counselor by the National Association of Drugless Practitioners.
I have been working in the field of holistic medicine for over 20 years and as an acupuncturist for the last 7 years. I continue to learn and adapt cutting edge nutritional and Functional Medicine knowledge with Acupuncture and TCM to better support you.
What Is Community Acupuncture?
Community acupuncture is practiced in a group, rather than one-on-one, setting. Don’t worry! You won’t be baring much skin. The treatments are primarily on the front of the body and mainly on distal points (legs, arms, hands, feet, ears, etc.)
You will zone out and relax in a nice comfy chair or table for an hour or so.
This is the way that acupuncture is traditionally done in Asia.
Community-style clinics run on a sliding scale in order to make them more affordable, and so that people can get the amount of treatment they need in a shorter period of time. The idea is to make acupuncture as accessible as possible.
Traditional Chinese formulas, nutritional and lifestyle recommendations will be made for your specific health concerns as needed.
Acupuncture is a safe medical system that is appropriate for both chronic and acute pain. It is used for internal medicine conditions such as asthma, migraines and PTSD and is an excellent adjunct therapy for those being treated for cancer. The specific concerns acupuncture can treat are too many to mention but main categories are listed below:
