Community Acupuncture is a friendly and cost effective way to try out this modality or to use as a “tune-up” between regular acupuncture treatments. We are pleased to offer this event for our students and community!

Acupuncture is an effective system of complementary medicine that involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to affect the flow of the body’s vital energy. It has evolved into a complete holistic health care system that promotes natural healing, enhanced immunity, improved physical and emotional health, and overall function and well-being.

It is a safe, painless, and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical conditions, both acute and chronic, including back/knee pain, insomnia, anxiety, migraines, and women’s health concerns, amongst other conditions.
