Community acupuncture is a nationwide movement to create access to acupuncture by making treatments affordable.

South Shore Community Acupuncture

For now, because of Covid-19, we are unable to offer community acupuncture.  We hope that this is temporary. 9/14/21

At South Shore Community Acupuncture, the initial visit begin with creating a treatment plan that is unique to you and your situation. After discussing your goals for treatment, we will lead you to our community acupuncture room for your first session. Treatments take place while you rest in our serene common treatment room. Acupuncture is similar to physical therapy in that it has the best therapeutic value with a series of treatments. All treatments are administered by licensed, board-certified acupuncturists.

We use points on the head and below the elbows and knees to treat the entire body, so there is no need to undress. Just remove your shoes and roll up your pants and sleeves. We can even address your back pain by treating points on your wrists. For some conditions we also recommend taking Chinese herbs in conjunction with your acupuncture treatment.   Young children may receive a very gentle, non-insertive technique.

You will be with other people quietly receiving treatment at the same time. 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 is not a lack of privacy, but an opportunity to experience treatment with family, friends and community. The shared experience makes individual treatments more powerful. Whole families can benefit from a group treatment, helping to support parents and siblings. Young children and infants may be treated in individual rooms, dependent on their needs.
