Community Acupuncture

March 13, 2020 Covid-19 action to #flattenthecurve. Update: Community acupuncture is temporarily cancelled until further notice. Community acupuncture is not different from regular acupuncture but involves multiple people (up to 3) receiving acupuncture in a group setting. People recline in chairs and wear loose clothing that allows access to acupoints below elbows and knees. It's a quiet and comfortable way to attend to your health issues, recharge and de-stress. It is intended to be affordable at $25-35 per treatment sliding scale.

Auricular Acupuncture

March 13, 2020. #flattenthecurve Nada circles are temporarily cancelled until further notice. Weekly at Barefoot Acupuncture clinic. Thursdays 7:30-8:30. Call, email, text to book ahead: 705-740-7945. $15-25 suggested donation or pwyc. Ear acupuncture is gaining widespread popularity for its' effectiveness at treating addictions and ptsd. For people recovering from traumatic experiences, acupuncture can be a support to help with symptoms such as anxiety and depression, hypervigilance, insomnia etc. For addictions, acudetox is used by many treatment centers to ease withdrawl symptoms. Nada circles are for anyone; the deep relaxation of ear acupuncture benefits our ability to be resilliant and recover from day to day life stresses.

Why Barefoot?

The term Barefoot refers to the Barefoot Doctors of China; a cooperative model of healthcare delivery that began in the 1950's cultural revolution. Due to a severe shortage of doctors in rural China, villagers were given training in western and eastern medicine to serve their communities. This model was internationally recognized by the World Health Organization for its' amazing success in delivering primary health care to millions of people. I am inspired by the modern day community acupuncture movement and would like to see acupuncture available to all.
