What is Community Acupuncture?

Inspired by Working Class Acupuncture in Portland, Oregon, we have created a calm, relaxing environment where patients receive acupuncture in a group setting while seated in comfortable chairs or lying down on couches in the Solomon’s Porch Gathering Space.  This video gives you a feel for the Gathering Space and shows the many comfortable couches available:
 

Needles are placed primarily along your arms, legs, face and head. Multiple appointment times staggered throughout the hour allow us to give high-quality, personalized care to many patients, which permits us to lower our fees and make Chinese medicine accessible to a greater number of people.

Due to the higher cost of private one-on-one treatments common in America, people normally receive acupuncture once a week, at best. When treated with greater frequency, you can see and feel faster improvements in your condition. Kingfield Community Acupuncture’s fees allow you to see your acupuncturist more often. Depending on your constitution and your condition, we may encourage you to come in multiple times in one week.

Patients benefit in many ways from the community setting. In our busy society, it is not often we stop and take time to relax while surrounded by our peers. This group experience creates a collective healing energy that enhances the power of each individual’s treatment and allows families and friends to visit our clinic together.

For another perspective, here’s another video made by a clinic in Oregon about a typical Community Acupuncture experience:
