Community acupuncture is a way to make acupuncture affordable and accessible to everyone in the community. There will be an initial one on one visit with Dr. Laura, ND where she will review your health history, assess your condition, and then provide an initial acupuncture treatment. Expectations for how many sessions you will need and how often will be discussed. Typical acupuncture treatment plans include between 6-8 sessions, and then long term care and follow up is determined after the sessions are completed. After this initial visit, you can book in for community acupuncture for all future visits.
If you are looking to get other treatments aside from acupuncture, such as nutritional counselling, supplements, or lab work, please book in for a naturopathic consult so you can discuss this one on one with Dr. Laura.
During community acupuncture, there may be multiple people receiving acupuncture at this time in a large shared room. A relaxing environment has been established so you can get comfortable and enjoy your treatment. You’ll be laying either face up or face down on a table, fully clothed. Please wear loose clothing that will allow access to your arms up to your shoulders and your legs up to your knees. You’ll be asked to remove your shoes and socks.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we do our best to space our patients into separate rooms so you may be in a private room during the treatment.
