In brief, Community Acupuncture follows a traditional Far Eastern model for an acupuncture clinic whereby several people are treated in the same room by the same acupuncturists at the same time! Interesting – read on!
Acupuncture is one of the most well studied complementary therapies and is part of the mainstream health care in the Far East. Here in the UK, acupuncture is known to help relieve many forms of pain, improve energy levels and promote a sense of well-being.
Acupuncture isn’t widely available on the NHS and having treatment privately can be costly. The Community Clinic at Phoenix Health and Wellbeing makes acupuncture accessible to those who choose it as part of the management of their health conditions.
The Community Acupuncture model makes a more efficient use of time and space than the traditional Western approach and also promotes a joint sense of healing and well-being. This helps to bring the cost down for individuals to receive treatment and so makes acupuncture more accessible to the general public and health organisations that may want to refer their clients.
In our Community Clinic, you will see a peaceful space with people in various stages of relaxation, whilst acupuncture practitioners work fluidly amongst them. Light music plays softly in the background and there may be some quiet chatter. This is a space where you can close your eyes and take a break from the hustle and bustle of the World.
