What is Community Acupuncture?

Community Acupuncture

Community acupuncture is way to experience acupuncture in a safe, group setting at a lower cost than a private session. As with private sessions, patients at Community Acupuncture will be receive an individual consultation and a specific treatment for their condition. Treatments will be for around 40 minutes.

Community acupuncture sessions will be held on alternating Saturdays from 12-3pm at The Yoga Factory in Annandale. There is no need to book, all appointments will be on a walk-in basis.

In China as well as other Asian countries it is quite common for patients to be treated in the same room. Group healing can be quite powerful!
