Acupuncture works to open or free blocks of energy in the body. The needles interact with meridians which are the pathways that the energy flows through. Blocked meridians can affect you by limiting the functionality of various body systems resulting in the experience of pain, fatigue, irritability, and loss of function. When we treat based on ancient Chinese medical principles, we see improvement.
You probably know that stress is a contributor to a wide variety of health complications, such as anxiety, insomnia, and headaches. What you may not know is that stress can show up in many other unique ways, as a component of digestive disorders, skin problems, and decreased immune system function. Westside Community Acupuncture is here to help our local community start healing and feel their best by alleviating an overload of stress, in all its various forms.
Community Acupuncture is a model being embraced to make treatment available, affordable, and comfortable to more people.Treatments take place in a quiet, soothing community room shared with other people receiving treatment. Everyone remains clothed in a comfortable reclining chair, while acupuncture points on the hands and feet are utilized. We will let you relax with the needles in for 40-50 minutes. Everyone in the room together creates a collective healing energy which makes the treatments powerful, therapeutic, and effective.
You will receive treatment in a room with two to three other people. Personal conversations between patient and practitioner happen in privacy before entering the group treatment room, and are kept brief to get your healing session started as soon as possible.
We utilize a sliding scale ranging from $20-$45 based on your annual household income. We hope that this makes acupuncture treatments more affordable and available to you. We do not bill insurance. Our goal is to accomodate any income level to make sure you can come in as often as you need to feel your best.
Come in soon. You deserve it.
