Whole Health Acupuncture: simple, safe, affordable healthcare
Welcome to whole health acupuncture, a community based approach to wellness.
Our unique approach aims to harmonize and balance all aspects of life: body, mind, spirit. Our intention is to help you find your way back to wellness and maintain it long after you’ve stopped treatment. We are all aware that the only constant is change; balance is your body’s ability to adapt and flow with change. Our office addresses the whole person, not just a symptom. Our highly trained, professional, and compassionate staff specializes in each individual’s personal growth and development as he or she journeys back to wellness. Whole Health Acupuncture services can assist in improving the quality of life for any disease that takes the body out of balance. These tools can assist in improving your quality of life so you’ll have enough energy left to enjoy life, not just “get” through it.
Whole Health Acupuncture offers community acupuncture on a sliding scale.
Most US acupuncturists treat patients on tables in individual cubicles. This is not traditional in Asia, where acupuncture usually occurs in a community setting. In our clinic we primarily use recliners, clustered in groups in a large, quiet, soothing space. Treating patients in a community setting has many benefits: its easy for friends and family members to come in for treatment together; many patients find it comforting; and a collective energetic field becomes established, which actually makes individual treatments more powerful. In some styles of acupuncture, the needles are removed after only a few minutes or half hour at most. The style of acupuncture we practice at WHA allows patients to keep their needles in as long as they want, and the “right amount of time” varies from patient to patient. Most people learn after a few treatments when they feel “done.” This can take from twenty minutes to a couple of hours! Many people fall asleep, and wake feeling refreshed.
Most US acupuncturists also see only one patient per hour and charge $65-175 per treatment. They tend to spend a long time talking to each patient, going over medical records, and asking many questions. We don’t. The only way that we at WHA can make acupuncture affordable and still make a living ourselves is to streamline our treatments and see multiple patients in an hour, so we have returned to the traditional approach; instead of asking you lots of questions, we rely on tongue and pulse diagnosis to decide how to treat you. This is exactly how acupuncture is practiced traditionally in Asia: many patients per hour and very little talking.
