A strong therapeutic effect
Acupuncture increases the flow of life energies, which promotes in healing. And all living things exchange energy. By amplifying this energy flow as well as allowing individuals to receive treatment more frequently, the therapeutic value of the treatment increases.
Affordability & Accessibility
A sliding fee scale allows more people to access Acupuncture as often as needed for them to get well and stay well. It therefore can be used as a preventative, long-term health and life-style practice. It is also an inclusive business model that welcomes people from various social and financial backgrounds.
Being treated in a group is a profound social experience. To be in the quiet presence of others during a treatment reminds us that we are not alone. Reducing isolation can strengthen a person’s resistance to disease and improve mental-emotional well-being.
How Community Acupuncture Helps to Build & Strengthen Community
All living things generate magnetic and electrical energy as well as exchange energy. Acupuncture increases the flow of these energies, which promote healing. When people receive acupuncture together, this life energy is collectively amplified and the therapeutic value of the treatment increases.
Also, by receiving acupuncture in a group you share a grounding experience together. It’s a group experience of nourishment and revitalization of mind, body, and spirit. There is something rarefied and precious about that momentary stillness and rest that so many of us lack in our daily lives. And to share that universal pause with a group of sleeping strangers is uniquely safe, welcoming and lovely. This isn’t a privilege or a luxury, this is a necessity that needs to take a greater priority in our society, that there is more to life than busy-ness and we could be experiencing life differently if we took more time to pause. When we share an experience that results in a greater sense of well-being and we are better able to feel connected to something larger than ourselves.
