What is community acupuncture?
Community acupuncture means treatments occur in a peaceful group setting. ODCA has 4 comfy recliners in a large, quiet room, plus 2 massage tables in another room. The shared space makes it possible for friends, neighbors and family members to come in together. A collective healing field is established that makes the treatments stronger, increasing the therapeutic effects for everyone in the room.
Community style also means that you get to stay as long as you want with the needles in, unlike most acupuncture clinics where patients are typically allotted about 30 minutes. Your body knows when it’s done! Treatment times range from 20 minutes to 3 hours and beyond, depending on the person and the day.
Finally, community style also means great rates! Acupuncture works best when it is given regularly, because frequent treatment is key to helping the body remember how to be healthy. In China, patients typically get acupuncture several times a week until their issues resolve. In America, high prices often prevent people from getting treated on a regular basis. Here at ODCA, our sliding scale separates the issues of money and treatment so you can participate in your own process of healing. Whether you have a pain condition, chronic illness, an acute problem, stress or stress-related disease, want to increase energy and performance, or simply want a tune-up, community acupuncture can help you.
