What is the Community Acupuncture?

Community acupuncture is a treatment model that allows to treat multiple patients per hour. Community acupuncturists see patients in a group setting, and charge on a sliding scale, making acupuncture accessible for many more people.

Our primary treatment modality, Zhu’s Scalp Acupuncture, is one of a number of microsystem acupuncture techniques, developed by Professor Ming Qing Zhu, L.Ac. based on his 50 years of extensive clinical experience.

In scalp acupuncture, very short, fine needles are placed on the scalp to achieve the desired therapeutic effects on the different parts of the body.

Our therapy is integrated with Daoyin (exercises), traditional and biomedical acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage, cupping and moxibustion to produce the best therapeutic results. We raise the patients’ awareness of self-healing power, and teach them self care through breathing, relaxation, meditation, physical exercises, and nutrition, among others.

In our clinic we can help with:

Neurological disorders: paralysis, motor and sensory impairments, muscle atrophies.

Pain: acute and chronic pain due to musculoskeletal, neurological, organic, or psychological origin.

Other: stress and anxiety, digestive concerns, sleep problems, fertility, allergies and skin conditions, cough and colds, woman’s health, etc.
