Community Acupuncture is performed in a large room with screens separating the beds. There is a 1ominute consultation period with your acupuncturist included and 30 - 40 minutes of resting time with the needles in. Cupping is included if necessary. This is the best option for people who have never tried acupuncture before, as the practitioner can see you at all times in case you are feeling nervous or uncomfortable. This is also the best option for people who need to come on a regular and frequent basis.
Trigger point acupuncture is a direct manipulation of muscle knots (also known as trigger points) to treat pain and injury. This is the best session type for people who have pain from a specific musculoskeletal problem, because the results tend to be very quick. All Trigger Point (TP) practitioners at City Acupuncture have had special training in TP above the standard licensure requirements.
