Community Acupuncture Serving Port Charlotte, North Port, Englewood, and Venice, FL
Community acupuncture is an ideal way to treat a variety of issues as well as being affordable. This treatment style is best for those who are comfortable relaxing in a room with others and appreciate the sense of community this brings. In this model, the practitioner meets briefly with the patient in a quiet area and then treats them in a community setting in chairs that are set up in a larger room. The patient is asked to wear loose clothing so that they can have needles placed in areas from the elbow down, the knees down, and on the head and neck. The sliding scale pricing is there so you can choose an amount that allows you to come often enough to get great results. The number of treatments needed varies and is discussed in your initial visit.
Community Acupuncture – offered on a sliding scale of $25-$50

History of Community Acupuncture
Acupuncture came to America with immigrants well before it became an acceptable profession. It wasn't until the 1980's that it became popular and schools started opening to teach acupuncture. At this point the Western medical model prevailed and patients were seen in individual rooms one on one with a practitioner. The community acupuncture movement began in 2002 in Portland, Oregon. Community acupuncture was designed to make acupuncture more cost effective for patients and increase its availability to the general public. POCA, or the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture, is a guiding organization for this movement and currently has over 100 clinics in the United States as members.
