COMMUNITY ACUPUNCTURE – Quicker Results at Less Cost

Acupuncture has been a community-based medicine for most of its long history. In Asia, acupuncture has traditionally been practiced in group, rather than individual settings. For acupuncture to be most effective, patients need to receive it frequently and regularly -- far more frequently and regularly than most insurance plans will pay for, or most patients can afford to pay out-of-pocket. As acupuncture has moved toward the mainstream in the West, it’s adopted a one-one-one spa-like model – a model which is great for some, but too expensive and timely for others.

HOW DOES IT WORK? WHAT IS THE COMMUNITY SETTING LIKE?

Community acupuncture clinics represent a return to tradition. Community acupuncturists focus on using “distal” points (below the knee and elbow, and on the head and neck) so that patients can remain fully clothed during treatment. Community acupuncture clinics often use recliners rather than treatment tables. Many patients prefer a community setting because they find it more relaxing, less isolating, and can really tap into the healing energy of everyone in the room.

The sliding scale range used at Cape Fear Community Acupuncture meets the standards set forth by the Community Acupuncture Network at $20-40 with no income verification. There is a $15 processing/intake fee at the initial visit. We recommend coming in twice per week for the first 2-4 weeks, and as certain results are attained  treatments may be spaced further apart. Treatment length 45 - 60 minutes.
