Community Acupuncture


If you are interested in acupuncture treatment but can't afford the cost of a 1:1 session, I highly recommend community acupuncture. So what's the difference? Instead of being alone in a room with an acupuncturist, you are in a room, fully clothed with others relaxing in recliners receiving treatment all at the same time. The pay is usually a flat low fee, or a sliding scale. The place I've been to has a sliding scale of $15-40 and you pay what you can. Others I've seen have a flat fee of $20 or $25. That said, this type of clinic may be hard to find depending on where you live. Luckily I live near 2 or 3 clinics in the DC/MD/VA area.


I sought treatment for acid reflux, wrist tendonitis and PTSD. My acid reflux is healing (not just from acupuncture), as is my wrist. The PTSD takes a little longer, but I am feeling a little better (not just the acupuncture).


I recommend community acupuncture if you are interested in it, and can't afford 1:1 sessions.

    Hi, I have been having acupuncture done for the past month to treat pudendal neuralgia. I noticed when I first started treatment that I had some pain relief, but the last few treatments have started to not make a difference in my pain levels. This is my first time receiving acupuncture. How long should I continue? When do you know when to stop? My body is very sensitive and I bruise occasionally from it. Would you suggest I ask for the treatment plan or what should I expect the outcome to be? Will this help with long term relief? I just am in need of some guidance. I’m one day away from stopping gabapentin and weaned myself off the medication in the last two weeks so this is my only treatment/pain relief right now. If there are any other women suffering from pudendal neuralgia/pelvic dysfunction i’d Like to hear what treatments helped you get better. Any guidance on acupuncture would also be so helpful! I called a patient advocate but received no call back and thought your group could help me. Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
