Emerald City Clinic is now offering monthly community acupuncture the 3rd Saturday of the month (*note August date change).

Community acupuncture is a great way to experience acupuncture for the first time, an affordable way to receive more frequent treatments as a return patient, and an excellent compliment to your naturopathic care plan. The open atmosphere of community acupuncture allows for multiple patients to be treated at the same time. This allows for treatments to be provided on a sliding scale ($20-$40, pay as you can) making acupuncture financially accessible to most patients. Due to the group setting, treatments are generally provided using points on the limbs and ears, rather than those on the trunk or core. Since acupuncture meridians traverse the whole body connecting multiple areas, your acupuncturist can easily select distal points to treat a complaint by placing needles in distal areas. The benefits of acupuncture are cumulative, so the ability to receive more frequent treatments contributes a greater and more sustained effect.

Acupuncture has demonstrated positive effects for a wide variety of different pain conditions including acute and chronic injuries, low back pain, knee pain, dysmenorrhea, and headache, as well as endocrine disorders, irregular menses, menopause symptoms, fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia, anxiety, depression, smoking cessasion, and multiple other complaints. Feel free to contact us with any questions regarding other complaints that may benefit from acupuncture.
