What Is Community Acupuncture?
Community Acupuncture is a discounted acupuncture program that provides greater accessibility to acupuncture treatment for those who need it! Traditionally, Community Acupuncture is performed in a group setting where multiple clients receive treatments at the same time in one large open room. Due to COVID19 and social distancing restrictions, we will be modifying the group setting approach and performing the same treatments but safely in private treatment rooms.
When is Community Acupuncture?
Community Acupuncture will be run on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon/evening. As volume increases, so will availability.
How Much Is Community Acupuncture?
Community Acupuncture will be provided at a discounted rate. In order to cover our costs, we have set the price at $50 per treatment. This is roughly 50% of our typical rates for a follow-up visit.
NOTE: Community Acupuncture treatment can be covered by your health benefits plan.
Who will be performing Community Acupuncture treatments?
Our physiotherapists Michael & Kaitlyn, as well as our naturopath Dr. Crystal will be spearheading Community Acupuncture. As the program grows, we will be adding other practitioners (Registered Massage Therapist & Chiropractor) in order to better utilize your extended health care benefits.
How can we afford to charge so little?
Community Acupuncture visits are more affordable, which we hope will attract more clients. Additionally, with better access to treatment, more clients should improve and as they improve, we hope they can give back in their own way: tell friends/family/colleagues about the program, leave positive reviews, and refer new clients… anything helps!
Will Community Acupuncture be effective in treating my issues?
Mostly YES! No matter what style of acupuncture you receive or with whom, there will be excellent and effective points used. Those points will be individualized for you and your issues.
Saying that, as much as it kills us to admit it… although acupuncture can augment most treatments, on its own it does not fix all issues. Oftentimes, your issues may require additional or different treatments in order to fully resolve. In these circumstances, your practitioner will discuss with you how to more efficiently meet your goals.

Why Community Acupuncture?
Community Acupuncture is not just a discounted treatment program, but a two way relationship between our clinic and our community! The relationship is simple in that the clinic will work to serve you by being here when you need us to provide acupuncture to relieve your pain and suffering. The community will come for acupuncture, pay for treatments, and participate in supporting the clinic in other ways. As with all healthy relationships, both parties give and receive.
