We offer affordable community acupuncture treatments.
We want you to come in often enough to really get better and stay better! New patients pay $40 which includes the initial consultation fee. Additional community acupuncture treatments are just $29. Our primary goal is to make acupuncture available to you as often as you need it.
Most acupuncturists in the U.S. see one or two patients per hour and fees can range from $60 to $150 per treatment. They tend to spend a lot of time talking to each patient, going over medical records, asking many questions. We don’t. Community acupuncture relies on a more traditional approach. The only way that we can make acupuncture affordable and still make a living ourselves is to streamline our treatments and see multiple patients in an hour. So we have returned to a traditional approach, allowing us to bring our fees down considerably. Treatments are still individualized and tailored to your specific needs and we rely upon traditional diagnostic methods of observation, auscultation, inquiry and palpation, focused around pulse diagnosis.
We Treat in a community setting.
In the U.S., most acupuncturists treat patients on tables in individual rooms or cubicles. This is not traditional in Asia, where acupuncture occurs in a community setting. In our clinic we use recliners, arranged in a large, quiet, soothing space. Treating in a community setting has many benefits including:
- Allows for low cost treatments
- Friends and family can be treated together
- Group energy enhances treatment.It is comforting
- The setting reduces apprehension and mystery
We use distal acupuncture points.
At Harmony Community Wellness Center, patients remain clothed and lie in comfortable recliners in a quiet, soothing community room. Acupuncture needles are applied "distally", meaning that we place needles primarily in your arms and legs, hands and feet. In other words, we may treat your back pain by placing needles in your hands and feet. With this more traditional style, we can see more patients which allows us to reduce the cost of the treatments.
