What is Group Acupuncture?

Group Acupuncture is a quality, professional acupuncture in a relaxed, group setting, where multiple patients receive treatments at the same room. Receiving acupuncture in a group/group setting has many benefits; it is easy for friends and family to come in together for treatments. Many patients find the group setting comforting and they feel a collective energy in their treatment.


We now offer Group Acupuncture sessions twice a week, every week at a reduced rate. It is an affordable option for those who would like to try acupuncture, for those who cannot afford private appointments, for those who concluded their treatment and simply need maintenance or for those who want to do a combination of both, as a treatment plan.


What Is The Difference Between a Group Session and a Private Session?

Private appointments are one on one session that covers all aspects of health. We address current complaints, medical history, medications, diet, emotional wellness and lifestyle. Private appointments also include any bodywork that may be needed (acupuncture, cupping, auricular acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, infrared therapy with minerals, lab work), food therapy, homeopathic remedies, herbal prescription and supplements.


Group acupuncture is an acupuncture only session, performed in a group setting, so that more patients can be treated at the same time. After a brief consultation, patients lie in comfortable massage table and wear their regular clothes. Points are utilized on the arms, legs, hands, feet, face, ears and scalp. We are able to treat disorders or pain anywhere in the body by utilizing distal points on the front of the body. Needles are then retained for about 20-45 minutes while patient relax. Group sessions can be used to treat just about anything from headaches to back pain. Typically acupuncture treatments are recommended 2-3 times per week regularly until the condition starts to come under control. The exact duration of treatment depends on the condition, your basic level of health, and how well you respond to acupuncture. Group acupuncture is the way acupuncture is traditionally done in China, where patients are often treated several times a week and makes frequent treatments affordable.


(*A blend of group acupuncture as well as private acupuncture treatments may be recommended*)


Do I Need To Schedule an Appointment For Group Acupuncture?

We generally operate by appointment but we are always happy to accept walk-ins during our group hours, as long as you are willing to wait to be treated. It is always a good idea to give us a call before you come in just to make sure we can fit you in the schedule. So if you have a sudden headache, sense the beginnings of a cold, or just feel stressed and need to have a break, just give us a call at (407) 373-0606 and come on over!


Do I Have To Take My Clothes Off for a Group Acupuncture Session?

Absolutely not! You will remain clothed during treatment. To get ready for a treatment plan to wear something comfortable. Many of the acupuncture points we use are on the hands, feet, arm, and legs, so wear shorts or clothing that can be easily pushed up to access these areas.


Am I Missing Out on Good Acupuncture Points While in Group Acupuncture?

Yes, but no matter what style of acupuncture you receive, there will be excellent and effective points used on the arms-hands and legs-feet. No one kind of acupuncture is able to use all of the acupuncture points at once- and nor should they.


The best thing to do is leave the point selections to your acupuncturist, while giving them feedback about how treatments are helping to change the patterns of illness or injury for you.


What Is a Sliding-Scale?

A sliding scale means that YOU determine what you can afford based on our scale. The initial appointment is $50 and the follow-up appointment range is $35 –$50. A cancellation fee of $15 will be charged.


How Does a Sliding-Scale Work?

A sliding scale works by offering a price range that can fluctuate for each person and can even differ each time you come in for treatment. You chose a price based on the sliding scale, taking into account how many visits you need and what you can afford. What you choose to pay on the scale does NOT determine what sort of care you receive here. Everyone here receives equal, quality care. Our hope is that the sliding scale will

allow you to make room in your budget for regular acupuncture treatments. It creates a window to accessible healthcare when healthcare can be a high expense for us all.


Acupuncture works best when it is done consistently and frequently. The sliding scale allows for patients to come in for a series of treatments over the course of a few weeks or months. In addition, the sliding scale gives access to acupuncture treatments to so many more individuals in our group.


If you have any questions about our sliding scale, please feel free to ask us. We know that the concept of a sliding scale is unfamiliar to most people. We want you to be comfortable with our fee structure, and hope this provides you with affordable, quality care.


How Can You Afford to Charge So Little?

Our clinic is funded solely by our patients. We rely on our patients to pay what they can and spread the word to other people in the group. Your referrals mean the world to us here and allow our clinic to grow and thrive. Referrals also help us to keep our costs low so that we don’t have to spend a lot of money on advertising and marketing. Low overhead is the key to a successful and busy group acupuncture clinic – it also means that we can keep our fees affordable.
